Thomas Jefferson


U.S. President
Fluent in multiple languages: Latin, Italian, French, Spanish, Greek

To read the Latin and Greek authors in their original is a sublime luxury...I thank on my knees him who directed my early education for having in my possession this rich source of delight.

- Thomas Jefferson





Michael Rostovtzeff


Ancient Historian, Archaeologist, Latinist. Pioneered merging archaeological evidence with literary sources in writing history.

For me archaeology is not a source of illustrations for written texts, but an independent source of historical information, with no less value and importance, sometimes more importance, than the written sources.
