About this product
- DescriptionPolybius' overall theme is how and why the Romans spread their power as they did. The main part of his history describes the rise of Rome, her destruction of Carthage, and her eventual domination of the Greek world. It is a vital achievement despite its incomplete state; all but the first five of its original forty books survive.
