Other online classical web sites which have proved extremely useful are:
  • Forum Romanum, which includes an index of online Latin texts and translations
  • LacusCurtius: into the Roman World
  • Roman Consuls
  • De Imperatoribus Romanis: an online encyclopaedia of Roman rulers and their families
  • Overview of this page [Ref: 0.1]

    Especial thanks are due to all those mentioned on this page.

    Every attempt has been made to trace the owners of illustrations; where we have failed to do so, the omission can readily be rectified.
