Historiography at the End of the Republic

Oxford University Press

In the contemporary histories of the Late Republic written by non-Romans, we can find preserved the attitudes of those dispossessed of their power by the establishment of Roman hegemony. The historical texts themselves, like any intellectual product, have a distinctive form. The genre employed by each author and the structural choices made reflect the nature of the historian's objectives and political position. Choices regarding the integration of Rome into the narrative structure are of particular significance. Two categories have been recognized in Hellenistic historical writing: universal history and local chronicles.

Keywords:   Trogus, Nicolaus, Diodorus, Hercules, 1 Maccabees, Memnon, universal history, local chronicles, Hellenistic historical writing
