The lack of archivism in the medieval era lost a great many classical texts, and Appian was no exception.

They have served as invaluable primary documents for generations of researchers attempting to piece together just what happened to poor old Rome. An instructive example of Appian’s style is his history of the Third Servile War, the slave uprising that began with a revolt in a gladiatorial school and end...
