The book : Rare 17th century edition of the 'Historiae romanae' produced by Elzevier. Paterculus provided an account of Roman history from the end of the Trojan War to the death of Livia, the wife of Emperor Augustus.

The author : Marcus Velleius Paterculus (c. 19 BC – c. AD 31), also known as Velleius, was a Roman historian. His History (Latin: Historiae), written in a highly rhetorical style, covered the period from the end of the Trojan War to the death of Livia in AD 29, but is most useful for the period from the death of Julius Caesar in 44 BC. to the death of Augustus in 14 AD. Although Velleius's praenomen is given as Marcus by Priscian, some modern scholars identify him with Gaius Velleius Paterculus, whose name occurs in an inscription on a north African milestone (C.I.L. VIII.10, 311): the first printed edition gives his praenomen as C.
