7.2.10 Roman History


Cassius Dio (164 – 224 CE) wrote a history of Rome in Greek. He took information from previous historians (“some accounts”), so this story may be true, even though it is not a primary source for the period of Caesar’s dictatorship. Dio’s second sentence departs from Caesar’s time and the older sources to make a comment on his own times.
