Classical Latin

Classical Latin is the language used by the principal exponents of that language in what is usually regarded as 'classical' Latin literature. Its origins within the framework of Indo-European are well understood, but there is much work still to be done on details.

Classical Latin is the Latin language of the Golden Age (broadly the 1st century BC), possibly extending to the Silver Age[?] (broadly the 1st century AD).
