    DescriptionSyracuse was the largest and most powerful of all the cities established by the Greeks in Sicily. Its history, often violent but always colourful, is recounted by both Greek and Roman historians, its coinage is justly famous, and its extensive remains continue to fascinate visitors to the city. The object of this work is to retell aspects of the history of Syracuse, with particular reference to the topography of the city and its surrounding countryside. In order to acquaint or re-acquaint the reader with the impressive architectural monuments of Syracuse and to contextualise these in their geographical environment, comprehensive use is made of visual material contained in an accompanying CD. Richard J Evans is a lecturer in Ancient History in the School of History & Archaeology at Cardiff University, UK. Until 2005, he taught in the Department of Classics and European Languages at the University of South Africa, Pretoria, RSA, where he remains an Academic Associate. His main interests are Roman republican history, and classical and Hellenistic Sicily. He is the author of "Gaius Marius: A Political Biography" (1994) and "Questioning Reputations: Essays on Nine Roman Republican Politicians" (2003), which has been awarded the Hiddingh Currie Award for Academic Excellence.
