Although only his books on the Roman Civil Wars survive in their entirety, large parts of Appian's book on the Syrian War, or Syriaca, have also come down to us. This book deals with the war that the Romans and the Seleucid king Antiochus III the Great fought in 192-188, but also discusses, as an appendix, the history of the Seleucid Empire. The Syriaca is a valuable source for the history of the ancient Near East between the reign of Alexander the Great and the Roman conquest.
The translation was made by Horace White; notes by Jona Lendering.
There are two systems to divide the Syriaca: in seventy sections or eleven chapters. On these webpages, the text is divided into sections; the following table shows the division into chapters.
