About This Item

1826 Works of Pompeius Festus Ancient Rome Latin Grammar Flaccus Delphini

Sextus Pompeius Festus was a Latin grammarian who made an abridgment in 20 books, arranged alphabetically, of Marcus Verrius Flaccus' De significatu verborum ("On the Meaning of Words"), a work that is otherwise lost. A storehouse of antiquarian learning, it preserves by quotation the work of other authors that have not survived elsewhere. Festus gives the etymology as well as the meaning of many words, and his work throws considerable light on the language, mythology and antiquities of ancient Rome. The first half of Festus' work, too, is lost, but a further abridgment of it by Paul the Deacon in the 8th century survives. The Festus Lexicon Project has summed up Paul's epitome of Festus' De Verborum Significatu as follows:

The text, even in its present mutilated state, is an important source for scholars of Roman history. It is a treasury of historical, grammatical, legal and antiquarian learning, providing sometimes unique evidence for the culture, language, political, social and religious institutions, deities, laws, lost monuments, and topographical traditions of ancient Italy.

This edition is the collected works of Festus from the series 'Scriptores latini in usum Delphini.'
