The History Of Rome, Volume 2

The History Of Rome, Volume 2 - Livy Epic like any good foundation story and the creation of the early Republic is well portrayed. It does become a bit redundant with the whole new yearly consuls list but the politics and the way the alliances and how the patricians families and the plebe families established their power bases is worth reading. The translation is still pretty good and engaging had does justice to the epic style of writing of this kind of literature.
