Publisher: Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, [2018]
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Public speech was a key aspect of politics in Republican Rome, yet the partial nature of the available evidence means that our understanding of its workings is dominated by one man: Cicero. This volume explores the oratory of the Roman Republic as practiced by individuals other than Cicero, focusing on the surviving fragments of such oratory.
