When you read these documents, it is important to be aware of the nature of the sources in which the information appears. To that end, I have provided a general description of the most important authors of the literary works from which this information has been derived (see “List of the Principal Authors and Literary Sources”). The dates provided for many of these authors are approximate, not much better than educated guesswork.
