Our next chat on Wednesday, October 16 will be A Murder on the Appian Way (Roma Sub Rosa Series #5) by Steven Saylor (also as eBook).
While Steven Saylor told me that he does not participate in book chats, he said he welcomes any questions via e-mail. His website.
Asconius lived about a century after Cicero and wrote commentaries on Cicero's speeches to help his sons understand them. Five of these have survived. They are not only interesting in their own right but also provide a mine of information about the turbulent history of the Ciceronian age.
