Popis Classical historiographical literature represents a fundamental source of evidence for reconstruction of ancient Roman political or military history, as well as for reconstruction of Roman society, etc. How does a little child fit into the narratives of grand history and the stories of famous men’s lives? In this paper, I propose to examine the depiction and reflection of children’s life and childhood in Roman historiographical literature. What part does a child play in the historical narrative? How do the writers use the motive of a child? What can we learn about the reality of childhood in ancient Rome from the works they have written?
