Latest Reading - Livy's History of Rome

This is translated by D. Spillan and Cyrus Edmonds. Titus Livius' History of Rome is an exciting and fascinating work that I highly recommend. Livy, as Livius is called, is an entertaining and informative writer with a great handle on describing battles, comparing sources, and inserting his own opinion on the truth or error of the sources he uses. It is believed he died in AD 17.
