LacusCurtius: Into the Roman World

April 16, 2013

This weeks Classics Resource is LacusCurtius.

I am adding the website to the resources section as it is extremely useful for texts focusing on the study of ancient Rome; the translation of Cassius Dio’s Roman History proved particularly helpful to my study of Julius Caesar.

In addition to the fifty Greek and Latin sources, the majority of which are translated into English, there are secondary materials on the site. Bill Thayer has also developed a photo album of Roman towns; documenting major monuments. Furthermore, this is a continuing project as there are six documents currently in development; Ammian, Aulus Gellius, Columella, Diodorus Siculus, Dionysius of Halicarnassus and Plutarch: Moralia.

Like the Perseus Project this site is free to use although you should ensure that any material incorporated into work is cited accordingly.

Much like LacusCurtius I intend to continue developing the Classics Resources section, hopefully adding a new resource each week; providing details of the main content so that you can easily identify the most suitable resource.
