Part II has the Roman history as its subject. It opens with a description of the topography of Rome on a historical background. This is followed by a prose version of Vergil's Aeneid with the important passages in the original, and Livy's Book I dealing with the seven kings of Rome, supplemented with extracts from Ovid(on Romulus and Remus, the Sabine Women, Lucretia etc.). Livy's prose has been suitably adapted, but less and less as it progresses, thus preparing the student for the reading of original texts by Livy, Aulus Gellius, Cornelius Nepos, Sallust, Cicero and Horace in the remaining chapters. The selections have been made so as to cover the history of Rome until the end of the republic. For periods not treated by these writers the compendium of Roman history by Eutropius and the epitome of the lost books by Livy have been used. As in Part I each chapter is followed by three pensa and a list of new words.
