Cassius Dion : nouvelles lectures

Abstract : The Roman History, written in Greek by the senator Cassius Dio (160 – 235 A.D.), recorded a ten centuries long history in 80 books. Although a major piece of documentation for modern specialists of the Roman period, it remains poorly studied, and consequently underestimated, in spite of Fergus Millar’s innovative book of 1964 (A Study of Cassius Dio, Oxford), which first drew attention to its importance. This monograph (multilingual, 700 p., 46 papers), the first of its kind since fifty years, aims first at summing up the main trends of fifty years of research following Fergus Millar’s steps, then at initiating new inquiries on neglected topics. To allow a wide diffusion of the results, a Companion like editorial production seemed best suited, as it includes both broad analyses accessible to graduate students (Master and Doctorate levels), and more erudite papers appealing to advanced researchers.
