In the Second Stage of Education, students learned about the works of famous Greek writings, taught to them by a "Grammaticus". Children also learned how to recite long passages of poetry and were taught history.
I have no idea what's happening.
Writing materials such as papyrus (a type of paper) and writing utensils, called styluses, made marks in wax also used during this time. Although the Romans made scientific discoveries, people were mostly concerned with learning simple arithmetic, how to read and write, and the ability to speak publicly.
In the Third Stage, most students would have finished their education. Wealthy children would be sent to a "Rhetor", a highly educated Greek. He would teach advanced lessons in literature and public speaking. Students were taught the rules of different kinds of speeches, and practiced arguing over a point of view.
