Eutropius’ Hannibal added, Ovid’s Icarus and Daedalus updated (beta editions)

Eutropius’ Hannibal (Bk 3 of Breviarium Historiae Romanae) is an early beta edition that includes a running core vocabulary, 12 pages of commentary, 6 text-only pages with Ørberg-style notes, and an alphabetized core vocabulary.

Eutropius’ prose is very accessible, and this selection is often read in 3rd and 4th year Latin classrooms to help students prepare for more challenging readings in Caesar and Cicero . While some readers and teachers may want to use the text-only pages exclusively, others can prepare a reading by using the commentary pages and then use the text-only pages in a classroom setting for review.

Livy recounts these same events in much greater detail in Books 21-30 of his Ab Urbe Condita.
