An impressive historical work - "Ab urbe condita".
The fascination of the Roman Empire lives on today. Antique buildings are tourist attractions. Our state apparatus and our legal system are still strongly influenced by the Roman. It is thanks to Titus Livius, among others, that we know so much about this impressive time today. His monumental work of history, comprising 142 books, begins with the foundation of the city of Rome in 753 BC and ends shortly before the birth of Christ. Without the Roman historian we would hardly know anything about such important personalities as the Carthaginian general Hannibal or the great emperor Augustus.
