Summary
Valerius Maximus' nine books of Factorum et dictorum memorabilium--memorable deeds and sayings--"containing about a thousand historical anecdotes exemplifying virtues and vices...particularly suitable for younger students at the beginning of the Latin curriculum, as his collection provided them with a comprehensive view of general history, as well as illustrations of virtuous precepts...."; see K.A.E. Enenkel, Transformations of the classics via early modern commentaries (Leiden: Koninklijke Brill, c2014), pages 154-155.

Summary expansion
The collection of anecdotes, arranged in nine books on a great variety of subjects, from religion to evil deeds, was also used by orators, and the number of printed editions attests to its great popularity during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. It is still valuable for the light it throws on the social history of Rome
