About

Not commonly used outside of Latin students, Ecce Romai, or “Behold the Romans” is a commonly used textbook to teach Latin and ancient Roman culture at the high school level by using stories of a Roman family in the year one A.D.
the second edition of these textbooks are illustrated with images that have been exploited by the Latin speaking community to create funny memes, some of which serve as inside jokes to the story of the book, or as references to popular pop culture, and many related macro images about student reactions and opinions to events and characters in the story.

A common comparison between these books is between the storyline of popular pop media phenomenon such as “Twilight,” references to the personality of the characters, and references to being “in a ditch” for thirteen chapters. there are many different references to these textbooks, and one individual joke or image is not the most prevalent, therefore any and all references to or about the textbook story in any way fall into this category of meme.

Story

the story in these textbooks centres largely around the Cornelius family in the year one A.D. this family contains the father, Cornelius, the mother Aurelia, their two children Cornelia and Marcus, the adoptive son Sextus, their slaves, Eucledies, pseudolus, and Davus, and their alcoholic uncle, Titus.

Speculation

Those who read the stories immediately pick up on Sextus’s irritating behaviour, aurelia’s angst y personality, Cornelius’s dominance over the family, Titus’s drunkenness, and a possibility of a romantic relationship between Flavia and Cornelia, two girls seen together at the beginning of the story.
