This volume is the much larger companion to Roger Blockley's similarly-titled monograph, published in 1981 (ARCA 6). The earlier volume gave a commented conspectus of the fragments, and essays on the individual historians. In vol. II the texts themselves are printed, with English translations and historiographical notes. Included also is a correlation of Blockley's order with the older numbering of Muller, Dindorf and Niebuhr, and indices of names, places, quotations and citations. This work, with the earlier monograph, has become a standard for the increasingly important study of the later Roman Empire.

Review:

Volume 2 of Fragmentary Historians is an indispensable work which, particularly because of its translations, can be expected to increase the accessibility and encourage study of the historians concerned for both the serious scholar and the general student. -- Phoenix 40 (1986) 118-20
