Overview


This book contains more than one hundred examples of Roman inscriptions; a birthday invitation scratched on a wooden tablet, an epitaph for a beloved child, a curse scribbled on a Pompeiian wall, the monumental record of an Emperor's achievements. These provide a vivid and compelling glimpse of Roman life and culture.

This textbook is designed to supplement the primary textbook in elementary and intermediate Latin courses. It is organized by grammar point and provides a straight transcription as well as an expanded version of each inscription. Most selections are four lines or less, and can be used for reinforcement and review without any undue sacrifice to classroom time.
