The first five books of Livy's history of early Rome recount the great stories and moments of Roman history. From Romulus and Remus, to the rape of Lucretia, to Horatius at the bridge, Livy's massive work immortalizes the events which both defined early Roman civilization and helped to shape our cultural heritage. This new annotated translation includes both maps and an index, making it the most complete and up-to-date edition available.
