Roman historian who wrote the most highly regarded history of Rome in the ancient period. His History of Rome chronicles events of the city-state from 753 B.C. to 9 B.C. It was published in 142 books, but only 35 of these survive in their entirety, while the others are available in fragments or summaries.
