In this book, Dr Bruce has written an historical commentary, basing his work on both the London and Florence papyri, which between them provide all the surviving fragments of the text.

Dr Bruce begins with a brief description of the two papyri. He then discusses the Oxyrhynchus historians style and method - his sources, chronology, bias, interest in causation, etc. The introduction ends with a resume of the numerous theories of the authors identity (Dr Bruce favours either Cratippus or an author not known to us by name at all). The main part of the commentary is arranged in the form of notes on the sections of the Greek text, with occasional detailed notes on particular words or phrases. There are appendices on the Battle of Sardis and the Constitution of Boeotia- and the book concludes with a full biography.

Dr Bruces book is a complete guide available for further historical study of the Hellenica Oxyrhynchia.
