The Aeneid by Virgil

One of the most famous poets of the Augustan era, Publius Vergilius Maro, now referred to simply as Virgil, was called on by the new emperor to legitimize him and his empire with an epic origin myth.

The Aeneid was Virgil's masterpiece, though he was still editing it when he died, and it has stood the test of time as one of the best epic poems in the Latin language.
