Classics Resource of the Week: LacusCurtius Into the Roman World

October 8, 2013

This weeks Classics Resource is LacusCurtius.

LacusCurtius is an exceptionally useful resource for texts focusing on the study of ancient Rome; the translation of Cassius Dio’s Roman History was particularly helpful to my study of Julius Caesar.

In addition to the fifty Greek and Latin texts, 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 project is continuously developing, there are currently six documents in progress; Ammian, Aulus Gellius, Columella, Diodorus Siculus, Dionysius of Halicarnassus and Plutarch: Moralia.

Like the Perseus Project this site is free to use and an exceptionally valuable resource, happy reading.
