1. Herodotus, Histories, 1.5.3 (5th cent. BCE - 5th cent. BCE)

1.5.3. These are the stories of the Persians and the Phoenicians. For my part, I shall not say that this or that story is true, but I shall identify the one who I myself know did the Greeks unjust deeds, and thus proceed with my history, and speak of small and great cities of men alike.
2. Thucydides, The History of The Peloponnesian War, 1.22-1.23 (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

3. Polybius, Histories, 1.1.6, 1.2.1, 1.2.8, 1.3.3-1.3.4, 1.4.1-1.4.2, 1.4.4-1.4.10, 8.2.3, 38.21.2 (2nd cent. BCE - 2nd cent. BCE)

8.2.3.  For how by the bare reading of events in Sicily or in Spain can we hope to learn and understand either the magnitude of the occurrences or the thing of greatest moment, what means and what form of government Fortune has employed to accomplish the most surprising feat she has performed in our times, that is, to bring all the known parts of the world under one rule and dominion, a thing absolutely without precedent? 38.21.2.  For at the moment of our greatest triumph and of disaster to our enemies to reflect on our own situation and on the possible reversal of circumstances, and generally to bear in mind at the season of success the mutability of Fortune, is like a great and perfect man, a man in short worthy to be remembered. (From Appian, Punica, 132)
4. Augustus, Res Gestae Divi Augusti, 10.2, 25.2 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. CE)

5. Dionysius of Halycarnassus, Roman Antiquities, 1.3.3-1.3.4 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. BCE)

1.3.3.  But Rome rules every country that is not inaccessible or uninhabited, and she is mistress of every sea, not only of that which lies inside the Pillars of Hercules but also of the Ocean, except that part of it which is not navigable; she is the first and the only State recorded in all time that ever made the risings and the settings of the sun the boundaries of her dominion. Nor has her supremacy been of short duration, but more lasting than that of any other commonwealth or kingdom. 1.3.4.  For from the very beginning, immediately after her founding, she began to draw to herself the neighbouring nations, which were both numerous and warlike, and continually advanced, subjugating every rival. And it is now seven hundred and forty-five years from her foundation down to the consulship of Claudius Nero, consul for the second time, and of Calpurnius Piso, who were chosen in the one hundred and ninety-third Olympiad.
6. Dionysius of Halycarnassus, On Thucydides, 6, 5 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. BCE)
