This was published by Harper & Brothers in 1857 a reprint of the original 1846 work. “It is believed that the work will be found to be of no small assistance to those who have not studied the Greek and Roman writers, but who frequently need information on many points connected with Greek and Roman Antiquities.” This goes alphabetically with terms one would read of in Greek and Roman works and states what it is. Words relating to festivals, customs, clothing articles, trade, commerce, sport, culture, art, law, architecture etc… will be found in here. It starts with what a an “Abacus” is and its background and ends with “Zona” and what it is and history of it.
