Description

In the Germania Tacitus provides the most-detailed extant account of the German peoples in Antiquity. This edition is one of two which claim to be the first in English for over sixty years. It contains both text and translation and a brief commentary, with an appendix of illustrations of Domitianic coins. The popular facing page translation format is perfect for the student looking for accessibility in a text which for too long has been the preserve of German scholarship.
