Tacitus: Germania and Agricola, v.1, 3 July 2008.
Caius Cornelius Tacitus (56-120 CE)
Germania and Agricola
The Germany and the Agricola of Tacitus. The Oxford Translation Revised, with Notes and an n Introduction by Edward Brooks, Jr.
The Germania is an account of the customs and manners of various German tribes. The Agricola is s life of Tacitus’s father-in-law, Cnaeus Julius Agricola, the Roman general who finally subdued Britain.
From the Agricola: (Calgacus complains about Roman oppression):
“To ravage, to slaughter, to usurp under false titles, they call empire; and where they make a desert, they call it peace.”
The source was a PG text file. I have hyperlinked more than 400 footnotes.
