With each of the podcasts, I am going to compile a list of supplementary resources. These are not meant either to duplicate those texts which can be found in the bibliography or to be an exhaustive list of related resources. Resources include links to other podcasts that touch on the topics of the episodes, parallels from Roman history, and other food for thought. These resources are organized by episode. A list of general resources for fans of classics, archaeology, and ancient history can be found here.
