From the mythical conception of Rome in 753 BC up to the initial rule of Augustus, "The History of Rome" by Titus Livius or Livy in short, stands as a colossal archival masterpiece chronicling the rise of Rome. Livy's narrative is deemed one of the most pivotal sources, pivotal in enlightening us on Rome's antiquity. The 142 volumes of the book, of which just 35 are still present, bring to light the existence of the Roman civilization, stretching back from the city's birth to the Second Punic War. Livy's writing possesses significant worth not just for its historical substance, but also for its literary quality. "The History of Rome", fashioned by Livy as a story with an ethical obligation, depicts the ascent of Rome owing to its moral principles and its decline consequent to moral erosion. Livy's eloquent and expressive writing style makes this work an all-encompassing read for anyone intrigued by ancient Rome's history.
