Provincial at Rome by Ronald Syme
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This volume offers a fresh insight into the development of a great historian, as well as giving a readable approach to late Republican and early Imperial Roman history. Drafted in 1934-35, but laid aside in favour of "The Roman Revolution" (1939), "The Provincial at Rome" was to have been Ronald Syme's first book. It is a study of the enlargement of the Roman elite in the early empire, an analysis, in 13 chapters, of the Emperor Claudius' enrolement of "Gallic chieftains" into the Senate in AD 48. This edition also includes five previoulsy unpublished papers dealing with Rome's conquest of the Balkans, a region Syme knew intimately.
