Polybius

Polybius (/pəˈlɪbiəs/; Greek: Πολύβιος; c. 200 BC – c. 118 BC) was a Greek historian of the Hellenistic Period noted for his work, The Histories, which covered the period of 264–146 BC in detail. The work describes the rise of the Roman Republic to 'world power' (i.e. domination over the Mediterranean world).
