Summary expansion
Of this original work, only Books 1-X and XXI-XLV are extant. Also included in this edition is the Epitome, consisting of short abstracts of each book. Livy's purpose--an ethical one-- was to commemorate the deeds of the Roman empire, to describe the men and mode of life that had raised Rome to greatness, and to explain the decline of morals which brought about the troubles of the first century B.C
