Overview

This edition of Book III of Eutropius’s Breviarium ab urbe condita is designed to be a student’s first encounter with authentic, unabridged Latin prose. Written in a simple and direct style, the Breviarium covers the period of Roman history that students find the most interesting—the  Second Punic War fought against Carthage—and the original Latin text is supplemented with considerable learning support. Full annotations on every page, detailed commentary on grammar and syntax, and a glossary designed specifically for the text allow students to build both their confidence and their reading skills. 

The commentary in the back of the book is cross-referenced to the following commonly used textbooks:

Wheelock’s Latin, 6th Edition

Latin: An Intensive Course by Moreland and Fleischer

Ecce Romani II, 3rd Edition

Latin for Americans, Level 2

Jenney’s Second Year Latin

Allen and Greenough’s New Latin Grammar

Macrons have been added to the entire text in accordance with the vowel quantities used in the Oxford Latin Dictionary. Additional resources include an unannotated version of the text for classroom use, supplementary passages in English from other ancient authors, and appendixes with a timeline of events and maps and battle plans.

The text may be used in secondary schools and colleges as early as the first year of study. The copious translation help, notes, and cross-references also make it ideal for independent learners.
