Un magnifique roman historique - tant par la minutie de la description, l'érudition de l'auteur et la vraisemblance de l'atmosphère que par la fougue et les épices du récit - qui est aussi une méditation sur le destin de l'homme et des empires, sur eros et thanatos. Par un des maîtres du genre, dont on a également publié en français ##Sinouhé l'Egyptien## et ##L'Etrusque##
