A superb, nuanced translation… It is not simply that McGing updates the translation to reflect contemporary idiom; he also breathes new life into Appian’s prose on almost every page… This exceptionally well executed Loeb is a welcome resource that will be deeply appreciated by all those interested in Appian and his remarkable Roman History as well as expand his appeal to a new generation of readers.—Alain M. Gowing, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

I have not read any fictions that have more dramatic tension, philosophy, or narrative curiosities than this history of Appian’s.Pennsylvania Literary Journal
