First published by Macmillan in 1972 as a sequel to the successful Two Centuries of Roman Poetry, this volume is also designed to introduce students to a wider range of Latin prose than they would normally encounter in a single-author prescription. From the first century BC the authors represented are Cicero (including letters and philosophy as well as oratory) Sallust, Livy and Cornelius Nepos; from silver Latin of the first century AD, Seneca, Petronius, Tacitus and the younger Pliny. Apart from the range of prose styles and genres included, all the passages are chosen for their intrinsic interest: Tacitus on the British (Agricola), Petronius on the werewolf (Satyricon), Livy on Hannibal in the alps (Book XXX) Taciltus on the death of Agrippina (Annals XIV), Pliny on the landscape at the source of the Clitumnus (Letters 8, 8).

There are extensive notes on language, content and a full vocabulary.
