The text inspired The Fate of M. Manlius Capitolinus Translated from Approved Historians (1712): {L: G.1390.(14)} - a 4 page pamphlet which can hardly claim to be a novel.

Self-classification

Titel: "Story".

Remarks

Allegedly a chapter of Roman history after Livius. Victorious: Manlius [Harley]. Camillus [Godolphin] and Cornelius Cossa [Marlborough] are discredited as they promoted a war out of personal (mostly personal financial) reasons.
