Currently struggling on an essay title for some university course work. Anyone got any, strong, deceptive strong points for me to work off? Currently, I'm writing a paragraph about how Virtus Romana affected non-contemporary historians and therefore our reconstruction of the period. Any points and sources welcome.

Cheers in advance. :)

Practice question set for myself, from an essay I didn't choose from essay choices given last year. Currently read “Introduction: Virtus and Historical Writing.” Virtus Romana: Politics and Morality in the Roman Historians, by CATALINA BALMACEDA, University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 2017. for research.
