THE TWELVE CAESARS

£3.00

Suetonius, Translated by Robert Graves, Penguin Classics, Penguin Books Ltd., 197o, Softcover, 315 pages.

 

The cover shows the reverse of an aureus struck by Octavian in 36 B.C., depicting the temple of the defied Julius Caesar, in the  Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris (Snark International).

 

Back cover: The Twelve Caesars of Suetonius (born A.D. 69), covering the Roman rulers from Julius Caesar to Domitian, remains one of the richest and most fascinating of all Latin histories. Suetonius gathered much of his information from eye-witnesses, checking his facts carefully and quoting conflicting evidence without bias. But his history is also the most vivid and the raciest account we have of scandalous and amusing incidents in the domestic lives of the first Caesars.

 

 

Condition: Fair, pages are yellowed with age, else clean inside, and creasing and marks/rubs to cover. A Reader copy.
