Best known for his longest excerptum about Attila and the Huns, Priscus Panita survives mostly in Excerpta Constantiniana de legationibus. He describes with an impressive amount of details a Byzantine embassy and the secret plot to kill Attila in 448/449 A.D., when Priscus himself was involved in a scary situation. He also investigates Theodosius II's age around other borders, such as Caucasus and Aegypt.After a new collation and full reconsideration of all manuscripts, this critical edition provides a complete demonstration of the stemma codicum and an accurate apparatus, both philological desiderata for long. The text is plain and fluent, a good example of V century A.D. rhetorical prose, with a wide range of loci similes in classic authors and a special skill for variatio. From a historical point of view, some nations from Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa find in Priscus a unique source for their roots

The fragmentary history of Priscus : Attila, the Huns and the Roman Empire, AD 430-476 by Priscus( Book )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
"Attila, king of the Huns, is a name universally known even 1,500 years after his death. His meteoric rise and legendary career of conquest left a trail of destroyed cities across the Roman Empire. At its height, his vast domain commanded more territory than the Romans themselves, and those he threatened with attack sent desperate embassies loaded with rich tributes to purchase a tenuous peace. Yet as quickly he appeared, Attila and his empire vanished with startling rapidity. His two decades of terror, however, had left an indelible mark upon the pages of European history. Priscus was a late Roman historian who had the ill luck to be born during a time when Roman political and military fortunes had reached a nadir. An eye-witness to many of the events he records, Priscus's history is a sequence of intrigues, assassinations, betrayals, military disasters, barbarian incursions, enslaved Romans and sacked cities. Perhaps because of its gloomy subject matter, the History of Priscus was not preserved in its entirety. What remains of the work consists of scattered fragments culled from a variety of later sources. Yet, from these fragments emerge the most detailed and insightful first-hand account of the decline of the Roman Empire, and nearly all of the information about Attila's life and exploits that has come down to us from antiquity. Translated by classics scholar Professor John Given of East Carolina University, this new translation of the Fragmentary History of Priscus arranges the fragments in chronological order, complete with intervening historical commentary to preserve the narrative flow. It represents the first translation of this important historical source that is easily approachable for both students and general readers" -- quatrième de couverture
