To my wisdom, this has develop into the normal remark for the 1st five books of Livy. it's fun to learn a few of the modern reviews--none of which have been altogether favorable. them all appeared skeptical of the length--as an analogous sized statement on all extant books of Livy could run over 7000 pages. The longest overview i may locate, years after ebook, merely criticized the fairly brief creation, and frankly had now not regarded a lot additional on the remark itself!

Here's an excerpt from a evaluation discussing the breadth of Ogilvie's scholarship:
Abundant remark on
political historical past and prosopography is furnished,
as a really precious complement to Livy's political
inexperience, his moralizing bent, and his not
unjustified perspective that the early heritage of Rome
is mythical at top. huge realization is
paid to Roman religion-again an important emphasis
in view of Livy's tendency to straddle between
his personal desire to take faith heavily, and the
contemporary skepticism that observed piety as an
affectation for political purposes.
