    Review quote
    All concerned with the topography and monuments of ancient Rome will welcome this splendid study, which brings up to date and in effect replaces the classic dictionary of 1929 by Platner and Ashby. Richardson catalogs all monuments and landmarks, major or minor, that are mentioned by ancient testimonia or have been discovered by modern archaeology... Each entry presents a summary of the evidence and of problems associated with the evidence, and a brief guide to the ancient and modern bibliography. Library Journal Richardson's scholarly dictionary is an essential tool for the study of the place about which Augustus Caesar reportedly claimed, 'I found Rome a city of bricks and left it a city of marble.'. Wilson Library Bulletin Richardson has produced a new standard work on the topography of ancient Rome in this exhaustive and objective study... [He] writes with clarity and authority and his erudite synthesis of the research carried out by a large number of academics is a superb achievement. Reference Reviews This is the kind of essential reference work whose value becomes increasingly clear with repeated use. A great deal of information is painlessly conveyed. Greece and Rome
