Tit is list of abbreviations contains works and individuals cited frequently throughout the notes, but excludes items exclusively concerned with topography which are described in detail in ch. 1, note 31. I have not included references to abbreviated descriptions of editions of ancient authors, which are mostly given in full when first quoted, and with many of which the reader's familiarity may be assumed. I have also excluded normal standard collections of texts, fragments, inscriptions and papyri, encyclopaedias, etc., for the same reason. Items which occur in only one chapter are explained in that chapter, usually in the first note.
