Hi GoldSeven, Thanks for the correction, for some reason I was sure that Pliny and Trajan were writing in Greek.Pliny and Trajan? Their letter exchange was Latin, quite definitely.
But he was having his work The Jewish War translated into Greek from Aramaic upon arriving in Rome with Titus after the war. This was a propaganda piece for Vespasian. Why not Latin?Josephus probably had not much of a reason to translate his work into Latin?
