REVIEW ê The Latin Inscriptions of Rome: A Walking Guide Rome's oldest known Latin inscription dates from the sixth century BC; the most recent major specimen was mounted in 2006 a span ofthan two and a half millennia Remarkably many of these inscriptions are still to be found in situ on the walls gates temples obelisks bridges fountains and churches of the city Classicist Tyler Lansford has collected some 400 of these in. It is hard to walk for long through the streets of Rome without noticing on its many monuments and embedded into its very walls inscriptions in Latin The inscriptions go largely ignored because nowadays most people have little knowledge or understanding of the language One exception is Tyler Lansford who has written a very original and endlessly absorbing guide to Rome through its Latin inscriptionsLansford divides the city up into fifteen areas and selects a number of key inscriptions from each In all he translates than 350 inscriptions dating from the first century BC to 2006 The book is clearly laid out with the original inscriptions and the author s translations on facing pages There are maps of each area clearly pinpointing the location of the chosen inscriptions The author doesn t simply provide translations of these useful though this would be he also mines each inscription to produce an extensive series of very informative notes on numerous aspects of Rome s historyThe book s only drawback is its size and weight It is a fairly hefty tome and not ideal for lugging about the streets of the Eternal City Otherwise very highly recommended
