[Long the standard edition of the fragmentary Roman historians, abbreviated HRR . The 1993 reprint has a useful list of editions and scholarship on the fragments since the first edition (pp. 209-233 of vol. 2).]

NB : a new, authoritative edition of the historical fragments is being prepared under the supervisory editorship of E. Bispham, T. J. Cornell, J. W. Rich, and C. J. Smith to be called The Fragmentary Roman Historians. The first volume, to be published by Oxford University Press, is awaited. Until then, although HRR remains useful and is still widely cited, the following newer editions should be consulted.
