Rome: Against a Setting Sun by Dave Kyle

Two protagonists, born eighteen months apart in the same mansion, live through this: Lucius, son of a wealthy Etruscan prince, and Horace, progeny of the prince's slaves. After Horace's death his diary and other sources inform Lucius' first-person narrative: boyhood amid gang warfare in Rome, participation in the civil war after Julius Caesar's assassination; loss of fathers and inheritances in the bloody Proscriptions; capture by pirates when sailing home; accompanying Octavian (later Augustus) at the final sea-battle; present in Egypt for the deaths of Antony and Cleopatra.
