Eutropii - Breviarium Historiae Romanae Liber I ad VI

3 hours 24 minutes of audio

Books 1 to 6 - from the founding of Rome to the assassination of Julius Caesar.
For many centuries, this text was the first Classical work put into the hands of a beginning student of Latin, due to the clarity of Eutropius' style. It fell out of favour in the late 1900's.
Flavius Eutropius was a historian who lived in the late 4th century. He was secretary (magister memoriae) at Constantinople, and accompanied the Emperor Julian on his expedition against the Persians (363), and was alive during the reign of Valens (364–378), to whom he dedicates his Breviarium Historiae Romanae and where his history ends.
The Breviarium Historiae Romanae is a complete compendium, in ten books, of Roman history from the foundation of the city to the accession of Valens. It was compiled with considerable care from the best accessible authorities, and is written generally with impartiality, and in a clear and simple style.
