Item description for Lingua Latina: Part II: Roma Aeterna (Lingua Latina) by Hans H. Orberg...
Part II deals with Roman history. A description of the city of Rome is followed by a prose version of Vergil's Aeneid I-IV, with some passages in the original, and Livy's Book I supplemented with extracts from Ovid. At first Livy's prose is gently adapted, but the book contains mostly unadpted texts by Livy, Aulus Gellius, Nepos, Sallust, Cicero and Horace.
