This paper focuses on a group of ten ancient Greek authors who, even in a world where warfare was endemic, can be classified as expressly military writers. They deal with scenarios of either battle or siege, and they show differing blends of realism and fantasy in doing so. Nine of the ten, most recently Athenaeus Mechanicus, have received appropriate attention in modern scholarship; the tenth, Apollodorus of Damascus, is in need of closer (and more sceptical) study. Plans for providing this are here outlined, and reflections are offered on the “genre” as a whole.
