Product description

This is the last of eight volumes on the history of Greece, first published in 1844. The volumes were aimed at two audiences: those people who wanted more than a superficial knowledge of the subject, but did not have the time or means to study the original sources, and those who had access to the ancient authors, but required a guide or interpreter. Volume 8 covers the period from the battle of Ipsus to the death of Pyrrhus, and then to the accession of Antigonus Doson. It looks at the battle of Sellasia and the end of the Social War between the Achaeans and the Aetolians. Then it covers the proclamation of the liberty of Greece under Roman protection, the embassy of Callicrates to Rome, and finally the reduction of Greece into a Roman province. This book will be of interest to researchers and students of ancient history.
