Cleopatra and the King of Rome: The Show Notes

Become a Patron!

Here, as promised, are some flute metal jams:

Our modern sources for this episode include:

Stacy Schiff’s Cleopatra: A Life

Adrian Goldsworthy’s Caesar: Life of a Colossus

And our ancient sources include:

Plutarch’s Parallel Lives (Bernadotte Perrin translation):

Life of Caesar
Life of Pompey

Suetonius’ Twelve Caesars: Life of Caesar (J.C. Rolfe translation)

Cassius Dio’s Roman History (Earnest Cary translation)

*Correction note! In this episode, we said that the earliest written Greek dates from around the 8th century BCE. Actually, Linear B (the earliest attested form of written Mycenaean Greek) dates from approximately 1450 BCE. Still not as old as ancient Egyptian…but a lot older than we originally said. Thanks to AHFG listener Howard Peacock for pointing that out!
