"Explore the stories of some of the most prominent Roman figures, such as Romulus and Remus, Jupiter, Venus, Mars, and Apollo. Roman mythology is based heavily on the Greek myths, and the two cultures share many of the same gods and goddesses, under different names. However, Roman myths also include numerous references to real, historical figures. This book highlights stories from the complex culture that was ancient Rome. Each chapter is followed by a Question and Answer section which covers themes, symbols, and characters; and Expert Commentary which makes for great discussion. To allow republication of the original text into ebook, paperback, and trade editions, this book is developed from ROMAN MYTHOLOGY."
