    1. I actually read the original Latin, and translated it. At the time it was an utter bore, and I struggled a fair bit with Nepos' flowery syntax. Since then, I've had some glances back at Nepos and realize how simple his Latin actually is in comparison to some other authors! I still own my copy of a few of his Lives, in Latin of course, so one day I hope to return to them again for translation, and I am determined to enjoy them more that time!
