About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1911, this book by William Heitland gives a succinct but thorough overview of the history of the Roman Republic from the Regal period to the rise of the Second Triumvirate in 42 BC. The text includes several maps as well as photographs of ancient Greek and Roman coins, and notes provide a concordance between this work and Heitland's larger tome on the same subject. This book will be of value to anyone seeking an overview of the development and eventual downfall of the Roman Republic.
