Before his death in late 1989, Sir Ronald Syme approved the publication of these 59 papers on Roman history which complete this collection of his life's work. Volume VI covers such varied topics as "Human Rights and Social Status at Rome", "Marriage Ages for Roman Senators", "Oligarchy at Rome: A Paradigm for Political Science", "Military Geography at Rome", "Diet on Capri ", "A Dozen Early Priesthoods", and "Some Unrecognized Authors from Spain ". Volume VII contains solely later, unpublished work which was still in manuscript form at the time of Sir Ronald's death. The final item is a spoof on Tacitus, comprising a Latin text on the story of Titus and Berenice with historical commentary. The work is aimed at scholars and students of Roman history, Roman literature, Roman philosophy, and classics.
