Editorial Reviews

ARBA
sterling scholarship...important
Reference Quarterly
"a very handy reference tool"
Booknews
In increasing order from threes to over-500s, compiles aspects of classical civilization that are most often associated with numbers, so scholars can avoid searching through specialized works to look up the three parts of Caesar's Gaul, the location and description of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, the nine Muses, or other lists. The six cities of the Dorian Hexapolis, the 12 holidays of Rome, the 24 books of the Iliad (summarized), the 147 temples of Rome, and the 1,866,666 sesterces granted to freedmen, are among the tallies.
