Florus, born apparently in Africa, lived in Spain and in Rome in Hadrian's time. He wrote, in brief pointed rhetorical style, a summary of Roman history (especially wars) in two books in order to show the greatness and decline of Roman morals. It is based chiefly on Livy. It was perhaps planned to reach his own times, but the extant work ends with Augustus's reign (30 BCE–14 CE). This Epitome is a useful rapid sketch of Roman military history. Poetry by Florus is also available in the Loeb Classical Library, in Minor Latin Poets, Volume II.

S. Aurelius Victor, ca. 320 bis 390 n. Chr., ein hoher römischer Staatsbeamter, stammte aus Nordafrika. In seinem Werk über die römischen Kaiser von Augustus bis Constantius II., 337 bis 361, entsteht ein faszinierendes Gesamtbild. Scharf und anschaulich werden die Zustände der späten Kaiserzeit kritisiert. Der herbe Moralismus des Autors, der die Form kurzer Charakterporträts der einzelnen Kaiser wählt, verweist auf bedeutende Geschichtsschreiber wie Sallust und Tacitus.

The Collapse of Rome

Marius, Sulla and the First Civil War

By the early first century BC, the Roman Republic had already carved itself a massive empire and was easily the most powerful state in the Mediterranean. Roman armies had marched victoriously over enemies far and wide, but the Roman heartland was soon to feel the tramp of armies on campaign as the Republic was convulsed by civil war and rival warlords vied for supremacy, sounding the first death knell of the Republican system. ??At the centre of the conflict was the rivalry between Marius, victor of the Jugurthine and Northern wars, and his former subordinate, Sulla. But, as Gareth Sampson points out in this new analysis, the situation was much more complex than the traditional view portrays it and the scope of the First Civil War both wider and longer. This narrative and analysis of a critical and bloody period in Roman history will make an ideal sequel to the author's Crisis of Rome (and a prequel to his first book, The Defeat of Rome).
