Example text

The difference, of course, is that we do not try to reconstruct early Greek history from tragedy – at least not on the level of facts and events – but do try to reconstruct the history of archaic Rome from Livy. He and Dionysius are our richest and – with few exceptions – earliest sources. ”49 There is an additional difficulty. Looking back from the late third century, the first Roman historians had within their reach of roughly a hundred years only the very last stages of the Conflict of the Orders.

Let me give two examples. 29 Does that allow us to conclude that it was one of the most powerful cities as well, ambitiously competing with its Etruscan neighbors? Such a conclusion would only be justified if there were strong evidence that the erection of large temples by archaic kings or tyrants was an expression of their power and ambition in foreign, rather than internal, politics. 30 On the other hand, the sherds found in various excavation sites indicate that the importation of figured Attic pottery declined sharply in the first and second quarters of the fifth century.
