Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome


For many years A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome (henceforth TDAR) was the standard English reference work on the ancient Roman cityscape.  It has been superseded by L. Richardson's A New Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome (1992: John Hopkins U P).  There is still much to commend in TDAR, especially in those areas where there has been little or no archaeological developments:  such is the situation with the monuments of Pompeius in Rome, where TDAR is still a perfectly valid resource.

In this place I have gathered all the entries of TDAR that pertain to the buildings and monuments of Cn. Pompeius Magnus.

For the most part I have not altered the text of TDAR.  I have removed Platner's and Ashby's abbreviated references to “modern” works, most of which are only to be found nowadays in some venerable university library.

On the positive side I have provided local links to translations of all ancient citations.  (Latin sources include the original text as well.)  These links provide entries which are much fuller and more comprehensive than the ones originally given in TDAR.  Most authors' names and works in Platner-Ashby's entries were abbreviated, following standardized forms.  Within the linked texts I have expanded their abbreviations into the full forms for the benefit of the non-specialist.

These entries have been collected and optimized in one pdf file for offline viewing.

You will need SGREEK installed on your computer in order to view the Greek text.  If you download SGREEK, you might also want to print out our keyboard reference guide.
