Diodorus Siculus

Diodorus Siculus (c. 1st century BCE)

“Whereas other memorials abide but a brief time, the power of history extends over the whole inhabited world and overcomes mortal time as a custodian that ensures perpetual transmission of events to posterity.”

  • The Library of History (Book 1, Chapter 2), by Diodorus Siculus, edited by Giles Laurén (Sophron Editor, 2014).
