Livy is a popular author in schools and universities in all areas of the English speaking world. The more popular books studied are those which recount the early history of Rome and the more noteworthy events of the Second Punic War; but there is a good case for examining the Romans' attitudes in the early years of their involvement in Greece and Asia, for these are crucial for an understanding of the development of Roman imperialism. The period covered by these five books, from the war against Antiochus the Great to the death of Philip V of Macedon, is of increasing interest to students of Hellenistic Greece and Roman imperialism, and should therefore increasingly interest university departments and Examination Boards seeking to break away from the conventional choices of the first and third decades. This is the only modern edition in English of these books.XXXVII (191189 BC) This war with Antiochus and its outcome signalled the beginning of Roman influence in Asia and the eventual expansion of her empire to the Euphrates. The details of the naval operations in the Aegean and the land-fighting are contained in this book, together with the preliminary settlement which preceded the formal terms of peace declared at Apamea.Latin text with facing translation, notes and commentary.
