The long path which brought to this unexpected development started in 2014, when notes on that papyrus drafted by R. Marichal were discovered in his archive; and finished in 2017, when the first edition was published in the review Cronache Ercolanesi. PHerc. 1067 is the only extant direct witness to Seneca the Elder's Historiae.

The book consists of two complementary sections, each of which containing seven papers. These two sections express the two different but interlinked axes along which the contributions were developed. On one side, the focus is on the starting point of the debate, namely the discovery of the papyrus roll transmitting the Historiae of Seneca the Elder and how such a discovery can be integrated with prior knowledge about this historiographical work. On the other side, there is a broader view on early-imperial Roman historiography, to which the new perspectives opened by the rediscovery of Seneca the Elder's Historiae greatly contribute.
