This text is designed to allow the intermediate/advanced student to read Latin rapidly, without having constantly to consult a dictionary or grammar.

It contains:

-Latin text with same/facing page
-Vocabulary notes
-Grammatical commentary
-Full vocabulary
-Historical commentary
-Index of place names and persons

The Res Gestae reveals as much about Augustus and his accomplishments through what it omits as what it contains. This edition allows students rare access to non-literary historical Latin, to the "queen" of Latin inscriptions: the accomplishments of the emperor Augustus, as he sought to have them presented.
