This part of the presentation shows how primary sources (texts, coins, and inscriptions) can be used to introduce beginning students to Roman naming conventions. Note that this is not a ready-to-use lesson, but rather a set of ideas that can be adapted for your class. If you download the Keynote or PowerPoint version, please be sure to read the presenter notes. Warning: The presentation was created in Keynote; the PowerPoint version may be glitchy (and you’ll miss the fiery transition of Scaevola), but you should be able to get the idea.
