Episode 54 – Dionysius of Halicarnassus

The Doctors return, dear listeners, with a special episode on the historian Dionysius of Halicarnassus!

Dr Greenfield has been reading the Antiquitates Romanae ‘The Roman History’ of Dionysius of Halicarnassus. In this episode, Doctors G and R consider our source material in a little more detail.
