The first such dictionary since that of Platner and Ashby in 1929, A New Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome defines and describes the known buildings and monuments, as well as the geographical and topographical features, of ancient Rome. It provides a concise history of each, with measurements, dates, and citations of significant ancient and modern sources.

L. Richardson, jr, is the James B. Duke Professor of Latin, Emeritus, at Duke University and the author of A Catalog of Identifiable Figure Painters of Ancient Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabiae and Pompeii: An Architectural History, both published by Johns Hopkins.
