When in Rome: Best Cartoons of Pompeiiana Newsletter Paperback – January 1, 2009
by Marie Carducci Bolchazy (Author)

Who knew the ancient world could be so funny? This collection of cartoons was taken from the archives covering 26 years of publication of Pompeiiana, a newsletter devoted to student-developed material. Popular topics for the cartoons include Medusa (e.g., her chicken-haired cousin), Julius Caesar (e.g., Caesar reforms the colander), the Trojan War (e.g., Ulysses getting a Trojan warrior to shout his comments thus making the Trojan hoarse) as well as commentary on Caligula’s horse in the senate (always voting ‘neigh’) and Horatius playing cards or Horatius at bridge.

Special Features
* 138 cartoons taken from the archives of Pompeiiana, a newsletter for students of Latin
* original artwork
* Special sections on Medusa cartoons
* Foreword by Dr. Bernard Barcio, editor of the Pompeiiana for 26 years
* Forthcoming companion book, using more material from the Pompeiiana archives
