A series of Latin textbooks which has [[CaptainObvious some association with Cambridge]]. Due to the lack of Latin textbooks it basically became the only one used in the UK for the past forty years, causing most former classics students to remember it. It even got a shout-out in ''Series/DoctorWho''.

* PostscriptSeason: So the writers end the first book with the explosion of Vesuvius and [[KillEmAll everybody dies]], or so we think. Caecilius the main character dies onscreen. It doesn't exactly give the impression there was going to be another book. Then in Book 2 we discover his son miraculously survives and the action is shifted elsewhere. Also, Book IV had ''a lot'' of {{filler}} arcs, don't you think? Who cares about ThoseTwoGuys at Bath and random weddings? Get back to Salvius and his evil!

* BeamMeUpScotty: "Caecilius est in horto." In the very earliest stories, Caecilius est in ''tablino'' and ''Clemens'' est in horto.

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Salvius is of the opinion that Pompeians and the British are all deceitful.

Someone decided the best way to teach Latin was to write a set of stories in the language most of which link in an arc...sort of. This forms the main part of the course.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: Caecilius is a real moneylender who actually lived in pre-Vesuvius Pompeii, his real life wife was called Metella, quite a few of the anecdotes in the book are based on the writings that he left behind. But Caecilius actually died in an earthquake 10 years before the destruction of Pompeii.
