      There's a scholarly book called "Latin forms of address" that was published
      in the last couple of years by a professor at Columbia that will give you as
      good an answer as you are likely ever to get on how Romans addressed each other
      both formally and informally in Latin.

      I would like to recommend a book by the late Keith Hopkins called "A World
      Full of Gods." It's an adventure in Pompeii before the eruption. The narrators
      are two twentieth century students who have been transported through time and
      are reporting on daily life in Flavian Pompeii. It's very good, because Keith
      Hopkins was a great scholar and teacher.
