He was 91. Mr. Cicero was born in Baltimore and raised on Montgomery Street. After graduating from Southern High School, he worked briefly as a butcher before taking a job at Globe Poster, which was then located at 113 Hanover St. The company that specialized in printing vaudeville, movie, burlesque and carnival posters had been founded in 1929 by Norman Goldstein and Harry Shapiro during a card game in Philadelphia, and after consulting a map, the partners decided to build their printing plant in Baltimore.

Cicero: The Life and Times of Rome's Greatest Politician, by Anthony Everitt. Random House, 359 pages, $25.95 British scholar Anthony Everitt is acutely aware that thousands of books and articles have been written about the 2000-year-old Roman named Marcus Tullius Cicero. So why did Everitt choose to spend years of his life adding to the voluminous literature about the philosopher politician? Two reasons.

THE high-school flavor of the Washington news was more than the spirit could bear, so I took Rome off the shelf. Not always admirable, those Romans, but they wrote a muscular prose far more bracing than the wheezing, whining, hyper-inflated, empty-headed, tongue-twisting, death's-door English of Washington.Here is Cicero, for instance, reminding us that "lustful pleasures . . . cloud a man's judgment, obstruct his reasoning capacity and blind his intelligence."If this seems pertinent just now, it is probably because the press seems about to embark on yet another earnest-Puritan exploration of Bill Clinton's pre-presidential sex life.

Still, with English as almost a second language in her early school years, Cicero made the distinguished honor roll every quarter in high school, finishing with only one grade lower than an A.
