10 days before the kalends of October

To-day, we discussed the previous two readings from Plutarch’s biography of Julius Cæsar, and introduced your assignment to write your own set of parallel lives.


  1. Choose the two people about whom you will write (step 1 in doc. 406).
  2. Read the next extract from the life of Cæsar (doc. 405).
  3. Complete drill 502.  Remember to refer back to the vocabulary (docs. 101, 102 and 103).
