Item description for Numbering And Measuring In The Classical World (Bristol Phoenix Press - Classical Handbooks) by William Frank Richardson...

This volume aims to introduce the reader to Greek and Roman ways of expressing numbers, weights and measures. These are matters often relegated to footnotes or tabulations in an appendix. Yet the words, the symbols and the calculations used in the classical world have an interest in themselves and often reveal unexpected facets of the culture that employed them. The subject can be a complex one but this book seeks to cut it to the essentials and to avoid the aridity of larger, more technical treatments; for it offers a relatively fluid and readable text, liberally enhanced with tables and with specific examples, quoted in both the original language and in translation, from a wide variety of ancient authors. Each paragraph is numbered for ease of cross-reference; there is a full index and list of ancient passages cited, along with a short bibliography leading to supplementary and more detailed material. The book is quite simply an indispensable point of reference! for every student of classical culture or of ancient texts.
