Drafted in 1934-35, but laid aside in favour of The Roman Revolution (1939), The Provincial at Rome was to have been Ronald Symes first book. It is a brilliantly written study of the enlargement of the Roman élite in the early empire, an analysis, in thirteen chapters, of the Emperor Claudius enrolment of Gallic chieftains into the Senate in AD 48. The edition also includes five unpublished papers dealing with Romes conquest of the Balkans, a region Syme knew intimately.
