A Triumph for Flavius

by Caroline Dale Snedeker


Quick Overview

A Triumph for Flavius is a striking story about a young boy in ancient Rome who is given a captured, Greek slave by his father, General Lucius Mummius. General Mummius had been leading the battles to conquer the Greek city-state, Corinth. When Flavius's father comes home from the war triumphant, he gives his only son a valuable Corinthian prisoner of war, Ariphron. Ariphron teaches Flavius about the world outside of Rome and of the wonders of Greece. Throughout this magnificent story, Flavius learns to have respect for all people, not only upper class Romans, and is exposed to brand new mindsets and views that aren't taught by his culture. This story illustrates what the Romans thought about slavery and what it may have been like to be a slave.


Here is a touching story of a young Roman boy, Flavius, and his developing compassion for his captured Greek slave Ariphron. Ariphron was given to Flavius by his father; General Lucius Mummius, at the time of Mummius' public Triumph for his victories in Greece and Corinth. You will learn a great deal about Roman culture observing Flavius' relationship with his family among the sights and sounds of Rome. Drama, personal development, tragedy, hope, compassion, triumph - this story has it all in a form easily understood by the young reader. This book is a wonderful introduction to the study of classical Rome and Greece. Bring this culture to life - don't just teach language, emperors, wars, and dates.
