These fifty-nine papers on Roman history complete the collection of Sir Ronald Syme's life work. Volume VI covers such varied topics as human rights and social status at Rome; marriage ages for senators; oligarchy at Rome; a paradigm for political science; military geography; diet at Capri; early priesthood; and unrecognized authors from Spain. Volume VII contains later, unpublished work that was still in manuscript form at the time of his death in 1989. The final paper is an ingenious spoof on Tacitus, comprising a Latin text on the story of Titus and Berenice and historical commentary.

Even more striking than the work's wide geographical scope is the range of approaches and techniques deployed. The extraordinarily detailed nature of the scholarship goes without saying. Anatolica is a splendid and valuable collection of both detailed and far reaching studies, tackling and satisfactorily solving many apparently intractable textual and historical problems.--Katherine Clarke, Gnomon 1999 No. 5
