    You could try raising them in a thread here or on RAT (Roman Army Talk - no pictures of rats, please!) and see if anyone takes the bait.

    Thanks Renatus, you're right, I could try rising them on RAT, but for personal reasons (about which I would talk not even under Gestapo interrogation), I won't.
    All in all, I don't complain. At my age, if I've understood something about life (and this is a highly questionable hypotesis), is this: it's better having questions than getting answers.
    Questions in fact are open doors over the infinite realm of the possible, answers instead are death sentences for illusions, and this is not always a positive fact in human life.

    Sadly, I think that only the reading of two ghost works, written by two ancient and noble ghosts during and just after the tragic events of the unfortunate Persian Expedition, could be able to give me the answers I need; unfortunately, ghosts have no voice to tell us what happened them amid those damn mysterious sands and then .. time takes care of finishing the job, erasing even the mnemonic shadow of them. Sic transit gloria mundi.

    Ilkka Syvanne has announced in his book The Reign of Emperor Gallienus: The Apogee of Roman Cavalry (BTW very recommendable) that he intends to publish another book about thse two very important and interesting emperors of the late 3rd century Crisis.

    Now there is an announcement:

    Thanks for good and welcome news My copy of The Reign of Emperor Gallienus arrived few days ago. It looks very interesting.

    Haven't managed to read it yet, but Poland has a surprisingly long tradition of studying Iranian history. The book is also easily available in the Internet, as the authors have uploaded a .pdf version in Academia.

    I didn´t know about this long tradition, but I really like that - Iranian history is fascinating. Also i didn´t know that book is avaiable an academia, but I prefer reading books

    One of my favorite historian of Hellenistic era, John D Grainger, is author of the upcoming The Roman Imperial Succession. I´m looking forward for his analyses:

    Published by Pen and Sword books early next year.

    What is the content? Generally how the Romans dealt with Imperial successions or certain events?

    I think your first suggestion is the answer for your question, but you can´t write about Roman Imperial successions without describing various events. Probably similar style to his Kings and Kingship in the Hellenistic World 350 - 30 BC.

    Also the author already wrote about one particular crisis - Nerva and the Roman Succession Crisis of AD 96-99 (part of the Roman Imperial Biographies, Routledge). In my opinion it´s excellent book.

    Roman horsemen against Germanic tribes. The Rhineland frontier cavalry fighting styles 31 BC - AD 256 by Radosław Andrzej Gawroński looks as interesting book. The book is available online in Academia:
