The death of the gods by Dmitry Sergeyevich

This is a great historical novel in the reign of Hadrian 


This is one of the greatest books I have ever read. It is historically informed, beautifully written (and beautifully translated by the poet Herbert Trench), and subtly conceived. Each character, even minor ones, are fully individuated and have their own motivations that pull them in the direction of Christianity or Hellenism (or both). It's a sweeping, ravishing historical epic.
