Also given the situation he was placed in, having never campaigned to any real notable extent prior to the Marcomanni Wars, and responding the way that he did, was nothing short of remarkable.

He was also notable for being among some of the few emperors who did not in fact want the throne, others such as Tiberius had a similar disposition. Therefore he tried to co-rule with Lucius Verus, which worked out relatively well, even though the men were so very different. It would work out relatively for all concerned until Verus would die. Of all of the authors of the Roman emperor series I must say that Anthony Birley comes out amongst the better of the lot.

He can be a little dry but he tends to keep things moving at a fairly crisp pace and stays on course rather then getting lost on tangents. He is a far improvement over Frank Mclynn whose biography of Marcus Aurelius I had read prior to this barely. I will say thank you to Anthony for making this experience a much more pleasurable one than that one had been.

I like the approach used for notes and references.

Sources[ edit ] The major sources for the life and rule of Marcus Aurelius are patchy and frequently unreliable. This is particularly true of his youth. The biographies contained in the Historia Augusta claim to be written by a group of authors at the turn of the fourth century, but are in fact written by a single author referred to here as "the biographer" from the later fourth century c. The later biographies and the biographies of subordinate emperors and usurpers are a tissue of lies and fiction, but the earlier biographies, derived primarily from now-lost earlier sources Marius Maximus or Ignotus , are much better. Dio is vital for the military history of the period, but his senatorial prejudices and strong opposition to imperial expansion obscure his perspective. Their only famous member was Titus Annius Milo , a man known for hastening the end of the free republic through his use of political violence.
