    How Many Books Did Diodorus Siculus Originally Intend to Write?Catherine Rubincam - 1998 - Classical Quarterly 48 (01):229-.
    Diodorus Siculus was notoriously inconsistent in his statements about the terminal date of his survey of history, the Bibliotheca Historica. In the ‘table of contents’ which he included in the general preface to the whole work, written apparently when he was preparing his manuscript for publication , he specifically names the year 60/59 as the last year of his narrative.
