Appian's Roman history by Appianus( Book )

90 editions published between 1912 and 2002 in 6 languages and held by 1,629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Appian (first-second century CE), a Greek from Antioch, offers a history of the rise of Rome but often shows us events from the point of view of the conquered peoples. Books on the Spanish, Hannibalic, Punic, Illyrian, Syrian, Mythridatic, and Civil wars are extant
Appiani Historia romana by Appianus( Book )

34 editions published between 1853 and 1986 in 5 languages and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The civil wars by Appianus( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If Appian's Roman History as a whole reveals how an empire was born of the struggle against a series of external enemies, these five books concentrate on an even greater ordeal. Despite the rhetorical flourishes, John Carter suggests in his Introduction, the impressive 'overall conception of the decline of the Roman state into violence, with its sombre highlights and the leitmotif of fate, is neither trivial nor inaccurate'
Wars of the Romans in Iberia : Iberike by Appianus( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Appian wrote his Roman History in the second century AD as a series of books arranged geographically to chronicle the rise of the Roman empire. His Iberike, of which this is the first translation with historical commentary in English, deals with the Romans' wars in the Iberian peninsula from the third to the first centuries BC. It is the only continuous source for much of the history of this crucial period in one of the earliest regions of Rome's imperial expansion and so fills in the gap made by the loss of Livy's later books. He describes the major campaigns of the conquest from the defeat of the Carthaginians by Scipio Africanus, the wars against the Celtiberians the war against the Lusitanians under Virathus and the seige of Numantia. But its value is more than that of a mere chronicler of otherwise obscure events, he was an historian who deserves to be studied in his own right." --Book Jacket
