Polybius was a leading Hellenistic historian, whom many regard as the natural successor to Thucydides. The great theme to his 'Histories' was a study of 'what made Rome great', exploring the rise of the Republic, the destruction of Carthage and the eventual Roman domination of the Greek world. The 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 the complete extant works of Polybius, with beautiful illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
