A comprehensive picture of the life and work of a major figure among the Greek-speaking authors of the Roman Empire. Arrian is our most reliable source for Alexander the Great and the author of three other major historical works and a number of shorter essays and treatises. This, the first book-length study of Arrian in English in this century, makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of Greek historiography and of the intellectual life of the second century A.D.
