Product description

Gappian wrote his Roman History in the second century AD as a series of books arranged geographically to chronicle the rise of the Roman empire. His Iberike, of which this is the first translation with historical commentary in English, deals with the Romans' wars in the Iberian peninsula from the third to the first centuries BC. It is only continuous source for much of the history of this crucial period in one of the earliest regions of Rome's imperial expansion and so fills in the gap made by the loss of Livy's later books. He describes the major campaigns of the conquest from the defeat of the Cathaginians by Scipio Africanus, the wars against the Celtiberiansm the war against the Lusitanians under Virathus and the siege of Numantia. But its value is more than that of mere chronicler of otherwise obscure events, he was an historian who deserves to be studied in his own right.This is the first English translation of the book, presented facing the Greek text, and is accompanied by a historical commentary and copious notes.
