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.
John Dewar Denniston was a British Classical scholar and Fellow of Hertford College, Oxford, from 1913 until his death in 1949.
