By Anthony Richard Birley

В книге, анализируя карьеру и окружение Септимия Севера, автор проводит исследование , каким "римлянином" был этот человек - выходец из африканской провинции Триполитании, родившийся в Лептис Магне (Leptis Мagnа), бывшей финикийской колонии в 620 милях от Карфагена. Его сестра так и не изучила латыни, поэтому, когда Север стал императором и она прибыла к брату, он просто выслал её из Рима, чтобы она не портила императорской репутации.
Учитывая, что Септимий прибыл в Рим из африканского города, процветавшего под Римским правлением, автор вначале рассматривает африканский период и его влияние на будущего императора, затем разбирается карьера Септимия - римского сенатора при Марке Аврелии, его второй брак на сириянке Юлии Домне, которая содействовала усилению влияния восточной культуры, участие в заговоре против императора Коммода и драматические гражданские войны 193-197. И, наконец, 18-летнее правление победившего Септимия Севера ознаменованное целым рядом важных внутренних реформ, значительно подвинувших вперед переход от принципата к единодержавию, довольно хорошо детализировано.Образцы сканов:
