    If you want everything in one place, there's Cambridge Ancient History. The amount of the material is huge, but you can decide what interests you the most. EB time frame takes 5 volumes there 7.1, 7.2, 8, 9, 10.

    for Roman history, Thomas Africa's "The Immense Majesty" explains things quite nicely and is rather witty to boot. Very good read. -M
