The Arrows of Hercules

(1965)
A novel by

 
Set in the time of Dionysios I of Syracuse, at the beginning of the 4th century BC, Th e Arrows of Hercules tells the tale of Zopyros of Tarentum, an engineer who invents an improved type of catapult.

He is quickly drafted by Dionysios into Syracuse's war efforts against Carthage, which sets him on a series of adventures including a battle against Etruscan pirates and a kidnapping in Carthage.

L. Sprague's meticulous attention to historical accuracy makes this a remarkable read which entertains as much as it teaches us about fascinating events that shaped the course of history.

"Exciting and quite believable adventures." - Classical World

"Rousing piece of fi ction...pace is rapid and unrelenting." - Th e Arizona Republic
