The Twelve Caesars, by Michael Grant, hardcover (very good condition)
The twelve Caesars of ancient Rome (Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus & Domitian) form a fabulous series. The themes of countless legends, these men were infamously depicted in Suetonius's Lives of the Caesars as strange at best & hideously villainous at worst. Delving into the personalities of these rulers, classical historian Michael Grant attempts to sort fact from rumor & to determine how each of these men used their unlimited authority. Black-&-white illustrations.
