Pyat Quartet is a tetralogy of novels (1981–2006) by Michael Moorcock comprising Byzantium Endures, The Laughter of Carthage, Jerusalem Commands and The Vengeance of Rome.[1]

The novels are presented as if narrated to Moorcock by (the fictional character) Colonel Pyat or Maxim Arturovitch Pyatnitski (born on 1 January 1900 in Kiev), a classic unreliable narrator[1] who is another incarnation of Moorcock's "Eternal Champion"".
