9780199640904: Rome, Polybius, and the East

Rome, Polybius, and the East offers a collection of seventeen of the more important papers written by the late Peter Derow, Hody Fellow and Tutor in Ancient History at Wadham College, Oxford, during the course of his career.

With a detailed introduction by the editors, the papers make up a distinctive and influential body of work--essential reading for anyone interested in Roman imperialism or Polybius, and Rome's rise to Mediterranean power. They include Derow's classic survey articles on the Roman conquest of the East, the great Greek historian Polybius, his investigations of the Roman calendar, and several papers on epigraphy. It also contains a bibliography of Derow's work.

About the Author:


The late Peter Derow was Hody Fellow and Tutor in Ancient History at Wadham College, Oxford, from 1977 until his death in December 2006.

Review:


"As a historian of [Hellenistic] Greek History and of [Republican] Roman history, Peter Sidney Derow (1944-2006; hereafter P.S.D.) radiated a brilliance of intellect which illuminated ancient texts...The writing is meticulous, requiring for a few papers patience and an extremely disciplined mind to penetrate its subject matter. The details of Polybian minutiae
that one encounters are impressive, if not overwhelming. Understandably his work has been
acclaimed. Polybius (c.200-c.118BC) was a Greek historian who wrote of Rome's ascent to its position of power, cf. 1.1,5. He believed the study of history to be foundational to civility and to the correct establishment of political activities. Readers of his Histories recognize their didactic emphases. Specialists have found him to be a spirited proponent of making right uses of source documents." --Peter Sidney Derow, The Ds Commentary
