The main part of Polybius' history covers the years 264-146 B.C.. It describes the rise of Rome; the destruction of Carthage; the domination of Greece by Rome. It is a great work, based on research, full of insight into customs, institutions, geography, causes of events and character of people. Polybius' overall theme is how and why the Romans spread their power as they did.
