PL NOTES:

SECTION 03 - Cato the Censor - In Support of the Oppian Law

There is only one small issue with this recording. The outro is missing.


At the end of the section, say:
"End of Section [number]"
If you wish, say:
"Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

That is all. Thanks!

New volunteer here. I'd like to claim section 4 under the user name; jaroberts. If successful I will claim further sections.

4 Scipio Africanus Major - To His Mutinous Troops

One question, the site referencing the work provided text that seems to 'drop off' at the last page of the dialogue.

Thank you.

Hi and welcome to librivox!

You are welcome to read that section. I have signed you up, your personal catalog page is here https://librivox.org/reader/11764

I think i see what you mean. The scan is a bit mixed up in that section, but all pages are there. Your dialogue starts on page 23 of the book, then you have 24 and 25 in order, 26 and 27 in order, and then a wrong and illegible double page. Skip it. The following pages are 28 and 29, repeated 3 times, and then 30. So there area couple of pages you need to skip, but otherwise you should be fine :) does that make sense?

Please take a moment to complete your one minute test before getting started :) thank you!

Many thanks,

I couldn't quite figure out how to properly get into character for Julius Cæsar without venturing into dialect (viz. that of a TA from mine from undergrad—thanks Reza!). If this sounds too weird, let me know and I'll try and think of something else.

Also, I transposed the footnote about the Porcian law by a couple of words so it appears at the end of the sentence and doesn't interrupt the flow as much.

Here is the link for section 21:

Run time is 14:36.

And finally I'd also like to claim section 29, the speech Tacitus gives Agricola.

Solidarity,
~~Owen

PL NOTES:

SECTION 07 - Caius Memmius - On a Corrupt Oligarchy

Great recording! Just a few small issues.

- The silence at the end of the recording should be 5s and is currently 8.5s.
- There is a repeat phrase between 4:47 and 4:59
"And thus, the more...is his security."
