(p.1) Introduction: Setting the Scene
Historiography at the End of the Republic

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the historians included in this book: Nicolaus, Memnon, Diodorus, Trogus, Posidonius, and the author of 1 Maccabees. They are, consciously or unconsciously, post-Polybian in their choice of subject matter and thematic approach. Although several of the historians in question wrote on diverse matters, even within their histories, their common element is a treatment of contemporary history from 146 BC onwards. Moreover, they all address the role of Rome in the wider Mediterranean.

Keywords:   historians, Polybius, Rome, Romans, Nicolaus, Memnon, Diodorus, Trogus, Posidonius, 1 Maccabees
