PDCS Home Page
This links page was posted on 17 March 2005 and last revised in November 2009. Suggestions are welcome! Our goal is to be comprehensive in only one area: (1) Pompey's contributions to Roman architecture, building, and sculpture. For links to representations of Pompey in art, they are carried in the relevant galleries of Imagines. For other areas we try to refer only to the best sites, most of which will themselves carry comprehensive links for their respective area of speciality. We do focus on sites which provide significant chunks of reading material in a “read-friendly” format. Site descriptions in quotes are taken verbatim from the respective site's meta-description or main page.

Theater of Pompey at Models of Rome
POMPEY'S POLITICS AND THE PRESENTATION OF HIS THEATRE-TEMPLE COMPLEX, 61–52 BCE: An article by Mark Temelini.
Vedute di Roma: Purdy pictures of Kalervo Koskimies. No, not of Mr. Koskimies, but of Roma. No, I don't mean to insinuate that Mr. Koskimies is not purdy. :)-
Aquae Urbis Romae: “The Waters of the City of Rome is a cartographic history of 2800 years of water infrastructure and urban development in Rome. Water is a living system that includes natural features (springs, the Tiber River, etc.) and hydraulic elements (aqueducts, bridges, fountains, etc.) that are linked through topography. Learn about the structure, methodology, and pedagogical goals of the project.”
A fascinating piece of collaborative scholarship. The relevance to the theater of Pompey emerges from questions into how the Porticus Pompei was probably supplied with running water.

Attalus: “This site contains detailed lists of events and sources for the history of the Hellenistic world and the Roman republic. It includes links to online translations of many of the sources, as well as new translations of some works which have not previously been easily available in English.”
The Library of Ancient Texts Online: “The internet's most thorough catalogue of online copies of ancient Greek texts, both in Greek and in translation. No texts are actually hosted on this site. Links in LATO are organised by author, or, where authorship is uncertain, by the titles of texts.”
Perseus Digital Library: “Includes tests [sic] from the classical and renaissance world.” I make lots of typos myssself, but I don't make grammatical mistakes, so their. ;)
The Latin Library: Self-explanatory :)
ELPENOR: “ELPENOR is built around a Bilingual Anthology of all periods of Greek literature, including downloadable versions of Plato, Aristotle, Physis Library, and the New Testament.”

Maps for Students: “Cooperating with faculty at UNC-CH, and with the scholars who commission custom maps from the AWMC for their publications, we are developing a collection of free digital maps for educational use. This effort gives teachers and students an expanding set of small-scale reference maps for classroom and personal use. Each may be downloaded from the website in multiple formats. A blank version of each map –suitable for map quizzes and customization–is usually available.”
