Dionysius of Halicarnassus

Kindle (US version), Kindle, ePub (US version), ePub

A historian of the first century BC, Dionysius of Halicarnassus taught rhetoric in Rome while studying the Latin language, collecting material for his magnum opus, ‘Roman Antiquities’. Dionysius states that his objects in writing history were to please lovers of noble deeds and to repay the benefits he had enjoyed while living in Rome, though he wrote also to reconcile Greeks to Roman rule. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Dionysius’ complete extant major works, with relevant illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
