The Greeks vs. the Romans

Just discovered a delicious and humorous oration by Boris Johnson speaking on the virtues of Ancient Greek civilization followed by an erudite and witty rebuttal by Mary Beard, speaking in favor of the Roman Empire.  

This event took place in London in 2015, at which time Boris was still Mayor of London.

What a delight to listen to the banter between these two, as well as to questions from the audience with Boris and Mary's reactions and asides.
