Sir Ronald Syme has been a major figure in classical studies for almost half a century, and this final volume contains his most recent papers. Syme offers insightful discussions of ancient authors such as the younger Pliny and Tacitus, and also sheds much new light on the classical Roman age's important political events and figures.

About the Author:

Ronald Syme was at University of Oxford, 1949-1970. Anthony R. Birley is at University of Manchester.

Review:

'A number of articles from fairly inaccessible works have been included. For this reason alone these volumes deserve to be read. There is, probably, something for everybody in these volumes. It is to be hoped that he will continue the work with Volume VI.' Brian W. Jones, University of Queensland, Journal of Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association `These two last volumes of Roman Papers are once again a proof of Syme's enormous culture, deep knowledge of human nature, command of every kind of source and power of interrelating and interpreting things. It is amazing the number of Roman characters that Syme knew. His learning is immense. Another feature is his formidable analysis of the nature of power.' Atomus
