Abstract

Approved of by the Roman authors of the past spying to secure advantage in war and battle was frowned upon in societies in which the ethos of personal honour ruled. Victory won through dishonourable action was regarded as ill-won: only slowly did attitudes towards spying (thereby winning an advantage to oneself without the knowledge of the enemy) come to be accepted as the norm.
