The epic poem ‘Punica’, concerning Rome’s Second War with Carthage and the legendary conflict between the generals Hannibal and Scipio Africanus, is the longest surviving epic of Latin literature.  A masterpiece of the Silver Age of Roman poetry, the ‘Punica’ fuses the significance of Livy’s history with the polished verse of Virgil’s ‘Aeneid’. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the treasures of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin.  This comprehensive eBook presents Silius’ complete extant works, with beautiful illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
