   schema:description "Velleius Paterculus' short work occupies a unique position in Roman historiography. It is the earliest surviving attempt on the part of a post-Augustan historian to survey the history of the res publica from its origins. In a period from which no other contemporary historical narrative survives in more than meagre fragments, Velleius' work - written under the emperor Tiberius - offers a critical counter to the later accounts of Tacitus, Suetonius and Cassius Dio. Not only does it give a different view of Tiberius, but it saw continuity where later authors saw only a radical change which destroyed the Republic and put monarchy in its place. This collection of new papers is by a distinguished international cast of scholars. It gives a wide-ranging re-examination of Velleius' work, of its place within, and contribution to, Roman historiography and the intellectual history of the early Principate."@en ;
