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 f ... Read more

1657 Lucius Florus History of Ancient Rome + Ampelius Liber Memorialis Salmasius "Men of outstanding ability are more likely to lack the power of controlling their own people than of defeating an enemy in battle." ― Livy, The History of Rome Florus was a Roman historian who lived during the 2nd-century AD. His history of Rome was collected by Livy, and mainly focuses on the foundation of Rome though the end of the B.C. era. The work is considered inaccurate, especially compared to Livy's much more popular and famous History of Rome. This 1657 Elzevier edition of Florus was edited by the 17th-century French classist Claudius Salmasius. First appearing in 1638, this book not only includes Florus but also an edition of Lucius Ampelius's 'Liber Memorialis'. This work is an ancient index of 1st-century Roman history focusing on cosmography, mythology, and geography during the Republican period of Rome. Curiously, this is only the second known edition of Ampelius. Item number: #7112 Price: $499 FLORUS, Luciu ... Read more
