Item description for Who's Who in the Roman World by John Hazel...

Who's Who in the Roman World is a wide-ranging biographical survey of one of the greatest civilizations in history. Covering a period from the 5th century BC to AD 364, this is an authoritative and hugely enjoyable guide to an era which continues to fascinate today. The figures included come from all walks of Roman life and include some of history's most famous - not to mention infamous - figures as well as hitherto little-known, but no less fascinating, characters. These include:
* the notorious emperors - Caligula; Nero; Elagabalus; Commodus
* the great poets, philosophers and historians - Virgil; Tacitus; Seneca; Ovid
* the brilliant politicians and soldiers - Hannibal; Scipio; Caesar; Mark Antony; Constantine
* noteworthy citizens - Acte, mistress of Nero; Catiline, the revolutionary; Spartacus, champion of the slaves; Gaius Verres, the corrupt governor of Sicily.
The inclusion of cross-referencing, a glossary of terms, select bibliographies, maps, genealogies and an author's preface complete what is at once a superb reference resource and an enormously entertaining read.

Reviews - What do customers think about Who's Who in the Roman World?

very useful book  Jul 24, 2001
I recommend this book for anybody who is interested in the ancient Roman civilization. Very well compiled and very useful dictionary of biographies on the famous Roman people.

However, there exists somewhat discordia in selection of the entries. For example, in the book we can find the emperor Hadrianus' favorite boy ANTINOUS , but not the emperor Nero's boy-wife SPORUS nor the emperor Elagabarus' husband HIEROCLES.

If you'd like to read more detailed accounts or articles , you should better to purchase the last version of "the Oxford Classical Dictionary".
