"The Perseus Project is pleased to announce the addition of Samuel Ball Platner and Thomas Ashby's 1928 edition of 'A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome' to the Classics collection. Platner and Ashby's 'A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome' is one of the primary sources for the study of Roman Topography. Since the dictionary documents the state of our understanding of the topography of Rome as of 1928, some material is now out-of-date. But, the wealth of information contained in the dictionary, including references to scholarship and primary source materials (for example, CIL inscriptions and ancient authors) still makes Platner and Ashby a valuable introductory resource for studying the growth and development of Rome from a literary, historical, and archaeological perspective."
