The complexity and richness of Livy’s narrative no doubt explain why it is so difﬁcult to precisely deﬁne where he positions himself ideologically. However, on this point as well, the present compilation has been a means of showing how our interpretation of Livy’s standpoint has evolved. Admittedly, the contributors are far from being unanimous in this regard; some are more sensitive to the politically critical tone of the work, while others, on the contrary, are more sensitive to its pro-Augustus overtones and stress Livy’s desire to follow the same line as the princeps by striving toward a restoration of the moral and religious values that were supposed to have been at the root of Rome’s greatness.

E. Burck believes, not without reason perhaps, that it was death that stilled the writer’s pen (Burck 1992, 6). The idea that either death or ill health brought Livy’s work to an end is widespread (A. Klotz R. E. XIII, 818; Laistner 1947, 80). Others believe that it was a question of literary choice (Syme 1959, 27–87). It is difﬁcult, if not impossible, to attain any degree of certainty. All we can do is formulate hypotheses. And we cannot exclude the possibility, suggested by L. Bessone (Chapter 31), that Livy actually wrote 150 books and actually went as far down in time as the battle of Teutoburg in 9 AD.
