Silius Italicus' Punica
This book offers, in one volume, a modern English translation of all 17 books of Silius Italicus’ Punica.
Composed in the first century CE, this epic tells the story of the Second Punic War between Rome and Hannibal’s Carthage (218-202 BCE). It is not only a crucial text for students of Flavian literature, but also an important source for anyone studying early Imperial perspectives on the Roman Republic. The translation is clear and comprehensible, while also offering an accurate representation of the Latin text.
Augmented by a scholarly introduction, extensive notes, glossary and a comprehensive bibliography (included in the introduction), this volume makes the text accessible and relevant for students and scholars alike.
