Florus: Epitome of Roman History (Loeb Classical Library No. 231)
by Florus, E. S. Forster (Translator)
Florus: Epitome of Roman History (Loeb Classical Library No. 231) by Lucius Annaeus Florus
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0674992547, Hardcover)
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.
