    Description & More Details

    Students will delight in Petronius' highly entertaining stories, including his famous "dinner party," which provide a colorful view of life in first century CE Rome. Some 901 lines of unadapted Latin with facing- and same-page syntax and vocabulary notes make this text an excellent transition to authentic, connected Latin for advanced high school and intermediate college students.
