PREFACE.

My object in publishing the "Map of Ancient Rome" is, to enable students to construct a Map for themselves; and my object in compiling this "Explanatory Index" is, not so much to write an account of the city, as to assist others in doing so. I shall not quote the passages to which I refer, out of Livy, or any poet whose works are printed in the "Corpus Poetarum Latinorum," because it is important that the student should verify these passages himself. Nor shall I translate any Greek or Latin passages which I quote, because the translation of them should form part of the student's work.

It is only within a few years that the topography of Ancient Rome can be said to have been settled with any degree of accuracy. Perhaps it would be more correct to say, that it is only within the last few years that those principles have been recognized, and practically applied, on which alone the study can be success
