That's the exact reason why I once in the middle of the 90s began reading antique classics. Romans & Greeks - I just wanted to know how they think.

If you want to take a look at rather *real* Roman life, I can very much recommend you the letters of Pliny the Younger - although they are still a bit more developed for a later release as books.

Plus, it is of benefit for understanding a bit more if you learn reading between the lines.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
