Abstract:It was a comfortable assurance of that urbane Roman poet, Horace, that he had built himself a monument more lasting than brass in the intellectual life of mankind. At the time that he was writing these lines the Roman engineers were constructing these concrete aqueducts and domes that have served mankind on the physical side during the time that Horace had been a source of perpetual delight to the students of classic writings.
