"Eureka!,"" " Carpe diem! " or " Ceterum censeo ": everyone knows these familiar quotations - but who knows where they come from? Many have changed their meaning completely: For example Caesars words " "Alea iacta est"" did not quite meant that the die is cast. In 49 chapters from "Ab ovo ... in medias res " to ""Vita brevis, ars longa"" the author Klaus Bartels leads his readers ad fontes, to the forgotten origins of the most famous quotes. A book for all friends of antiquity - and especially for those who do not dream Latin fluently.
