Index verborum Ammiani Marcellini
The work of the most famous Late Roman historian Ammianus Marcellinus has to
date not been opened up by a comprehensive index verborum. This new index,
based on the edition by Clark (1910/15), thus fills a considerable gap existing in
the study of the sources for the history of the Late Roman Empire. Each headword
of the index is accompanied by the inflected forms which appear in the texts.
Homonyms are separated according to meaning, and proper names are explained.
The index represents an important and reliable aid in the study of Ancient History,
and will also be able to give new directions to literary research, which has as yet
not reached a unamimous conclusion about the style of Ammianus Marcellinus,
who was a native of Antioch.
