Gifts for the Classicist in your life

It might seem odd to take such an interest in the events of two or more millennia ago, but we love Classics at Five Books, and have a rich store of book recommendations, from Classics books for teenagers (including two novels) to the best grammar book if you want to actually learn Latin or Greek. You can find all our book recommendations here. One book we particularly recommend for anyone interested in delving into the literature of the period is Twelve Voices, by Maria Wyke and Five Books interviewee Chris Pelling. HOWEVER, if that doesn’t satisfy the Classicist in your life, here’s our selection of non-book gifts: all designed to take them back to that idyllic era when throwing people to the lions was a spectator sport and poisoning a shortcut to political power.
