Denys d'Halicarnasse et l'histoire du monde grec à travers les excerpta des Antiquités Romaines

Abstract : Through the history of Rome during the IVth and Vth centuries B. C., Dionysius of Halicarnassus offers a couple of digressions about Greek world that one should pay attention to : indeed, they sometime happen to offer unique informations or the most complete ones on certain subjects. If allusions to the Ægean world must be read keeping in mind Dionysius’ moral purposes, the account of Western Greek cities events sheds light on the troubles some of them – Rhegium, Neapolis, Tarentum or Syracuse – had to face with from their foundation up to Pyrrhus’ interventions; Pyrrhus, whose strategic and military qualities were so remarkable that Byzantine excerptors judged they were worth being mentioned in their anthology.
