Benjamin D'Ooge published an edition of Francois Lhomond's Urbis Romae Viris Inlustres. This DVD contains the mp3 files of all the selections contained in the D'Ooge edition. Charles François Lhomond (1727 – December 31, 1794) attended classes at the Collège d'Inville in Paris, where he subsequently became dean of the school. Later he spent twenty years as an educator at the Collège du Cardinal-Lemoine and afterwards was professor emeritus at the University of Paris. Lhomond's textbook, De viris illustribus urbis Romae a Romulo ad Augustum was used for generations. The textbook is based on Livy, but the Latin is slightly simplified.
