Furius Camillus was said to be dictator of Rome five times. Despite running in and out of favor with the Roman public he had a distinguished military career. Plutarch relates a colorful character in this chapter from Plutarch's Lives. I enjoy looking for old books that no longer carry monetary value due to their condition and deconstructing them. By pulling a chapter from this book, refolding and rebinding, I bring new life to the story.
