Siculus Thucydides and other Greek historians have suggested that he was the legendary progenitor of the Sicels (or Siculi), an Italic people who colonised Sicily three hundred years before the Ancient Greeks in 1050 BCE. The island was originally called Sicania after a previous legendary King called Sicanus.
Siculus Siculus (from Greek) was a legendary king and brother of Italus.
Siculus Flaccus Siculus Flaccus made the distinction between public roads (viae publicae), local roads (viae vicinales) and private or estate roads (viae privatae) in Roman Italy.
Diodorus Siculus Diodorus' universal history, which he named "Bibliotheca historica" (, "Historical Library"), was immense and consisted of 40 books, of which 1–5 and 11–20 survive: fragments of the lost books are preserved in Photius and the excerpts of Constantine Porphyrogenitus.
Boletus siculus Boletus siculus is a pored mushroom of the Boletaceae family. The European species was described as new to science in 1869 by Italian botanist Giuseppe Inzenga.
Diodorus Siculus It was divided into three sections. The first six books treated the mythic history of the non-Hellenic and Hellenic tribes to the destruction of Troy and are geographical in theme, and describe the history and culture of Ancient Egypt (book I), of Mesopotamia, India, Scythia, and Arabia (II), of North Africa (III), and of Greece and Europe (IV–VI).
Petrus Siculus Petrus Siculus or Peter Sikeliotes () was either a monk or a learned nobleman, who in 870 was sent as a legate from the Byzantine emperor Basil I to the Paulician leader Chrysocheir, negotiating for an exchange of prisoners. He stayed in the Paulician city of Tephrike/Tibrica, now Divrigi in Turkey, on the upper Euphrates, for nine months. While there he wrote his "Historia Manichaeorum qui Pauliciani dicuntur", which is one of the main sources for the history of the Paulician sect.
Diodorus Siculus According to his own work, he was born at Agyrium in Sicily (now called Agira). With one exception, antiquity affords no further information about his life and doings beyond in his work. Only Jerome, in his "Chronicon" under the "year of Abraham 1968" (49 BC), writes, "Diodorus of Sicily, a writer of Greek history, became illustrious". However, his English translator, Charles Henry Oldfather, remarks on the "striking coincidence" that one of only two known Greek inscriptions from Agyrium ("Inscriptiones Graecae" XIV, 588) is the tombstone of one "Diodorus, the son of Apollonius".
Diodorus Siculus In the next section (books VII–XVII), he recounts the history of the world from the Trojan War down to the death of Alexander the Great. The last section (books XVII to the end) concerns the historical events from the successors of Alexander down to either 60 BC or the beginning of Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars. (The end has been lost, so it is unclear whether Diodorus reached the beginning of the Gallic War as he promised at the beginning of his work or, as evidence suggests, old and tired from his labours he stopped short at 60 BC.) He selected the name "Bibliotheca" in acknowledgment that he was assembling a composite work from many sources. Identified authors on whose works he drew include Hecataeus of Abdera, Ctesias of Cnidus, Ephorus, Theopompus, Hieronymus of Cardia, Duris of Samos, Diyllus, Philistus, Timaeus, Polybius, and Posidonius.
Siculus Flaccus Siculus Flaccus (date uncertain) was an ancient Roman "gromaticus" (land surveyor), and writer in Latin on land surveying. His work was included in a collection of gromatic treatises in the 6th century AD.
