When in Rome: Best Cartoons of Pompeiiana Newsletter

When in Rome:
Best Cartoons of Pompeiiana Newsletter

edited by Marie Carducci Bolchazy



What could be better? A cartoon book full of favorite characters from ancient Greece and Rome—from the mythological gods, heroes, and monsters everybody knows to the infamous protagonists and incidents of notorious history.

These cartoons, imagined and drawn by over a quarter of a century’s worth of talented Latin students and submitted to Pompeiiana, a newsletter by and for Latin students, will draw smiles of recognition from one and all. No arcane knowledge prerequisite to crack a smile!

Who says Classics can’t be funny?

The Pompeiiana Newsletter was published over a period of 26 years, from 1974 to 2003, and was edited by the founder and director Bernard Barcio, emeritus from Butler University in Indianapolis. The newsletters give testimony to the talent, energy, and enthusiasm of Bernard Barcio.
