      Georgia L. Irby-Massie, Military Religion in Roman Britain. Mnemosyne
      Supplementum 199. Leiden: Brill, 1999. Pp. xv, 387, 4 pl. $92.00. ISBN
      90-04-10848-3.

      "Roman Britain is the military province par excellence. It has provided a
      bodyof information on military architecture and the organization of the Roman
      army during the four centuries or so of its presence there that is unmatched
      by any other part of the Roman empire. It is therefore natural that we should
      turn to the evidence from Britain to understand better the religions
      practised by the Roman army. This is the task that Irby-Massie has undertaken
      in her comprehensive and useful study. She is not, of course, a pioneer. Much
      important work has already been done on religion in Roman Britain, which she
      acknowledges, but earlier studies have concentrated on specific topics. Hers
      is the first systematic treatment of the subject as a whole."

      Averil Cameron and Stuart G. Hall, trans. Eusebius' Life of Constantine.
      Introduction, translation and commentary. Oxford: Oxford University Press,
      1999. Pp. xvii + 395. ISBN 0-10-814924-7.

      "...this translation is a good introduction to the VC of Eusebius for the
      specialist and the generalist alike. To those users who know no Greek, this
      book is a godsend; for the specialist, it provides the reader with easy
      access to the most recent literature on the various issues dealt with in the
      VC. In a word, the book is a real gem."

      Christine F. Salazar. The Treatment of War Wounds in Graeco-Roman Antiquity.
      Leiden: Brill, 2000. Pp. 299. $78.00. ISBN 90-04-11479-3.

      "Scholars serious about ancient medicine, or about war heroes in ancient
      literature, should buy this book, which represents a substantial contribution
      to our knowledge in both areas."

      John F. Healy, Pliny the Elder on Science and Technology, Oxford: Oxford
      University Press, 1999. Pp. 467. $110.00. ISBN 0-19-814687-6.

      "Healy's work will prove invaluable to scholars wishing to understand Pliny's
      own particular contribution to ancient science and technology, as well as to
      those who have a more general interest in ancient science and technology.
      Discussion of individual topics is presented in a clear and accessible
      manner."
