Course Description

In 2022, L307 will read selections from Cicero’s speeches prosecuting Verres for political corruption. In addition to grammar review and vocabular building, we will also learn about ancient rhetoric and Cicero’s deployment of it. The bronze statue depicts Aulus Metllus as an orator wearing a toga and the high boots of a Roman magistrate and making a gesture typically used by Roman speakers. The statue is cast in bronze, ca. 90-70BCE, discovered in Lake Trasimene, now in the Museo Archeologico, Florence.
