Michael Grant was an English classisist, and known to numismatists as for his many excellent work. He is also known as the author of popular books on ancient history. His 1956 translation of Tacitus’s Annals of Imperial Rome remains a standard work. He once described himself as "one of the very few freelances in the field of ancient history: a rare phenomenon". As a popularizer, his hallmarks were his prolific output and his unwillingness to oversimplify or talk down to his readership.
Two minor bumps to the rear cover, otherwise almost as new.
