Summary expansion
Many of the stories are centered around different virtues, and provide moral guidance to the reader. Valerius drew on many different classical authors such as Cicero, Livy, Sallust, Pompeius Trogus, and Marcus Terentius Varro to make his case for preserving the moral values of ancient Rome
