These unadapted and authentic selections of inscriptions, proverbs, and literature provide a wide range of insights into not just the minds of Rome's movers and shakers but also into the daily lives of the average Joe. Beginning with simple graffiti, the book moves toward longer inscriptions and literary texts. Designed to accompany Wheelock's Latin, the readings and design features make it suitable for use alongside any introductory textbook. By Richard LaFleur. Harper-Collins. 307 pages.
