Comments

A Roman historian who lived between the 1st century BC and year 17 AD, Titus Livius wrote "Ab urbe condita libri" (Books from the foundation of the city), the most important history of Rome from its origins to the age of Augustus.
This extended work, which Livius devoted his whole life to, is a real epic of the Romans based on various historiographic sources and deliberately written in a narrative and emphatic style.
