Livy, known as Titus Livius in Latin, was a Roman historian who lived from 59 BC to AD 17. He is best known for his monumental history of Rome, 'Ab Urbe Condita Libri' (Books from the Foundation of the City), which covers the period from the earliest legends of Rome before the traditional foundation in 753 BC through the reign of Augustus in Livy's own time. His work, although not completely preserved, provides a detailed account of Roman history and has been a valuable resource for later historians studying ancient Rome.
