Question Pool:

1. A Roman could be important either by doing something great, or simply by being born into high status. In other words, Romans valued both accomplishment and privilege. Which of these two do you think was more prominent in Roman society? Argue for one over against the other. Your argument must incorporate an analysis of two things: a specific historical event or institution, and the point of view of a Roman writer. (Refer to the Mellor text by page number.)

2. In the early Republic, how did foreign affairs (Rome?s expansion) shape the social order at home (the struggle of the orders), and vice versa? Include examples of specific events to in your answer, drawing from Livy. (Refer to the Mellor text by page number.)

3. Discuss three individuals from this section who embody Roman values. Explain your selections. In your explanation, single one of them out as best representative of Roman values more than the other two, and defend your choice. (Refer to the Mellor text by page number.)

4. Identify and discuss significant, meaningful ways in which Livy?s treatment of the Punic Wars differs from that of Polybius? treatment. (Refer to the Mellor text by page number.)

5. Do you think Appian viewed the Gracchi brothers as martyrs for a good cause or reckless revolutionaries who received their just deserts? Do you agree with Appian? Of course, cite Appian (from the Mellor text) as you explain your answer. (TIP: You need to distinguish between a reformer and a revolutionary. They both want change, so what?s the difference?)

6. As Hyperbole, Hannibal?s personal secretary in 201 BC, you are writing an account of Hannibal's role in the recent Italian campaign. Describe and evaluate (from Hannibal?s point of view) Hannibal's journey from Spain to Italy, early battles through Cannae, Fabius and Marcellus after Cannae, why Hannibal failed to attack the city of Rome itself. What went wrong with the battle of Zama? You may write this as a journal, diary, letter, or whatever, but make sure this includes a Carthaginian interpretation of events and is not just a neutral narrative. You may ?spin? interpretations, but do not ?doctor? known facts.

I need a good full page with no space, using the references above to answer each question. Can you deliver in 24 hours?
