The Hellenistic World from Alexander to the Roman Conquest: A Selection of Ancient Sources in Translation by M. M. Austin
English | ISBN: 0521828600 | edition 2006 | PDF | 656 pages | 4 mb

The Hellenistic period began with the considerable expansion of the Greek world through the Macedonian conquest of the Persian empire and ended with Rome becoming the predominant political force in that world. This new and enlarged edition of Michel Austin's seminal work provides a panoramic view of this world through the medium of ancient sources. It now comprises over three hundred texts from literary, epigraphic and papyrological sources which are presented in original translations and supported by introductory sections, detailed notes and references, chronological tables, maps, illustrations of coins, and a full analytical index.
