This impeccable edition still stands the test of time for students at
school and university who wish to approach Cicero's major speeches
against Mark Antony after the assassination of Julius Caesar.
Denniston's commentary gives assistance with grammatical matters but
concentrates on presenting plainly, yet fully, the evidence bearing on
problems of the historical background and features of Roman life and
institutions to which the text alludes. There is a clear introduction
which sets out the speeches' historical context and provides an analysis of their content.
