Authors about Rome

Here you find a list of ancient authors about Rome. Most translated texts of the ancient authors are in the public domain. In order to be able to direct you directly to the right place in the books I copied them to this site.
Honesty commands to show where I copied them from. If you follow the links above you'll find lots of translated books in those sites.
The works of the contemporary authors are generally not to be found on the internet. Look here for paper copies

This page is of course still to be elaborated.
A warning before you start reading. Roman authors not always tell the truth. Twisting the facts in writing history may be a Roman invention. Most of them try to make Rome look better and it's actions justified.
