The Dutch Ammianus commentary is a glorious example of collaborative scholarship. (...) Before any disagreements uttered in this review, it should be said that the achievement is magnificent, a model of linguistic, literary, and historical learning; this work will be consulted with profit for generations. And before a review focusing mainly on chronology and textual criticism, it should be emphasized that the authors' coverage is wide-ranging-from the nuances of Latin particles through subtleties of characterization to detailed questions of topography-and the bibliography comprehensive.
