Asconius : Commentaries on Speeches of Cicero Paperback / softback
Part of the CLARENDON ANCIENT HISTORY SERIES CAHS series
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.
Consequently they are studied by all those who work on the history of the final years of the Roman Republic. This volume brings together the original Latin text with a new translation and commentary, designed for students, as well as indices, a glossary, and a full bibliography.
