Philological and historical commentary on Ammianus Marcellinus XXVI.


Philological and historical commentary on Ammianus Marcellinus XXVI.

Ed. by J. den Boeft et al.



356 pages




Having commented on earlier sections of Ammianus' history of Rome, Den Boft and colleagues here consider the first book that discusses the Pannonian emperors Valentinian and Valens, that is, the post-Julian period of the fourth century. Passage by passage, they place his account into such contexts as his overall approach to history, his interpretation of recent and events, subsequent events that he did or did not foreshadow, literary traditions, and other evidence for the period.
