Cassius Dio: The Roman History

The Roman History (Greek: Ῥωμαϊκὴ Ἱστορία, Latin: Historia Romana) by Dio Cassius is a work in 80 books covering the history of Rome from its legendary foundation until 229 AD. While much of the work survives only as fragments, many of the books covering the late republic and early empire are complete, providing one of the most valuable sources for this period.
