Our knowledge is supplemented in part by fragmentary evidence. This information is of several types. , informational remarks made by surviving writers (not just historians) about the scope, arrangement, and/or nature of lost historical works. , citations (either verbatim or not) by later writers that inform us of the contents of lost works. Finally, we have summaries or outlines (known as epitomes or periochae) of lost works, though these are often extremely brief: a lost book of Livy, for example, might be summarized in no more than a paragraph, or a mammoth work such as Pompeius Trogus’ forty-four-book universal history (five times the size of Herodotus’ or Thucydides’ work) is known to us only from a later epitome of some 200 pages.

The importance of paradigms derived from past history continued, in different literary genres and various forms, the goals and in certain ways the criteria that presided over the narrative choices of epic song. ’’ All of these genres constituted a type of galaxy (rather difficult for us to decipher because of the loss of so many works) that was linked to other galaxies, such as the various genres of geographic literature which also gave space to genealogical, historical, and ethnographic concerns.
