: Volume 3 of The Prosopography of the Later Roman Empire consists of two volumes sold together in a slipcase. It provides a complete secular biographical dictionary (prosopography) of the period AD 527 (the beginning of the reign of Justinian) to 641 (the death of Heraclius). The information has been gathered from a wide variety of sources in Latin, Greek, Arabic, Syriac and other languages. The project makes available for the first time in one work a mass of information relating to the personnel of the Roman Empire and the western kingdoms that were its heirs, and of other nations with which Rome had dealings, and is intended as a research tool for historians of late antiquity and the early Middle Ages.
