Appian of Alexandria

Appian is an often underated Roman historian, who lived during the height of Roman power and the era of the '5 Good Emperors'.

Because of the nature of his work, a collection of many separate geographic and period histories, his contribution to Roman history is sometimes overlooked.

However, his original 24 books, written in Greek, provides valuable insight into several aspects of the Roman world. Of considerable value is his treatement on the civil wars of the late Republic.
