In addition to the book on Cicero book I found at the library, I also managed to find Sicily: Three Thousand Years of Human History on abebooks.com and when I checked at my local library - they had it! So now I have an actual Sicilian history book to read!
Also added to my list is Herodotus: The Histories which I picked up using some birthday money. I didn't realize till I got out of the store that he was Greek, but at least the general time period is right. The Shadows of Sicily is fantasy, so I'm not aiming for 100% historical accuracy, just enough that it actually feels like the proper time period.
I also got some good suggestions via Twitter. @qatesiuradewyo suggested Who Killed Homer? by John Heath & Victor Davis Hanson. I believe I've seen this at the local library as well, so I shall snag it next time. @janoda suggested I, Claudius or Tacitus' Annales - the book on which I, Claudius is based.
If anyone's got something else that should be added to the list, let me have know! The more, the better!
