Brandon
An adaptation of the "Cena Trimalchionis" section of the Satyricon. It serves as an intermediate Latin text that lacks much of the dryness found in the ever popular "Caesar's Gallic Wars."

The book lacks much of the vocabulary found in the text. Furthermore, it is somewhat censored and leaves out much of the Cena. Otherwise, it's a very good read, assuming you can read Latin.
