Tacitus was undoubtedly the greatest historian which Ancient Rome produced. The
lack of modern lexicographical tools for studying his writings has thus left a
serious gap which this concordance to the latest Teubner editions of his works can
now fill. Compiled with the use of electronic data-processing, it provides an
invaluable supplement to the traditional kind of author dictionary (such as GerberGreef, cf. below) as it allows the user to find at a glance the immediate context in
which a word occurs. Each word is given with approximately three quarters of the
surrounding line from the text. This concordance is of inestimable value for
researchers in the fields of literature, linguistics, and history.
