Nepos
 

Cornelius Nepos wrote a biography of Titus Pomponius Atticus, an edited version of which appears in your textbook. Three on-line resources provide the original Latin and an English translation:

  • Perseus text with links for each word to the dictionary and the "morphological parser" - that is, the form of the word!
  • "The Latin Library" also provides the Latin text, though without the same tools as Perseus offers. here.
  • A website devoted to the 3rd c. CE Church author Tertullian contains a reasonable translation of Nepos' Life of Atticus.
Aesop  
   

Index to the Fables, by L. Gibbs

    Latin Via Fables, by L. Gibbs: a comprehensive site
   

Your Latin text of Aesop's Fables (also edited by L. Gibbs) does not always coincide with the English version - e.g., the first story is the Laeana et Vulpe ("Lioness and the Fox") while her translation is of the "Sow and the Lioness." In addition, your edition of the Fables contains abridged versions of the original complete text, so that the Gibbs translations will often prove more expansive. Nonetheless, they will give you a sense of the scope of each fable and shouuld prove useful if you are stuck.
