    Very gripping collection of biographies written by an anonymous source in the 4th century, detailing the reign and lives of Roman emperors from Hadrian to Aurelian - it is fun to read, to see the different lexical traditions of 4th century AD, the phrases the author uses, the qualities that are praised in an emperor etc.
