This book is all about artwork, and the version doesn't have a single picture in it. not even in bad e-book version. WASTE OF MONEY

It is interesting how two Romans Mark Anthony and Cesar of Rome carried ongoing relationships as lovers with her. The tragedies of the results of their glorious victories and glorious failures of suicide stand to reason throughout history
