You do not have access to this book. How to get access.
As a Latin lexicon, this volume pursues two main objectives: to create a broad corpus of Latin terms related to textiles, accessories and personal care and to collect all data in a comprehensible and practical format. Texts and visual sources were consulted, dating from the 3rd century BC up to the 4th AD, describing materials and trends from all regions within the Roman Empire and beyond. The lexicon is arranged in alphabetical order and each offers the etymology and Greek translation of the word, some quotations extracted from primary sources and more bibliography, to allow a deeper study. At the end, all terms are classified in different topics and two glossaries try to ease the search of a specific term either from English or Ancient Greek. This research broadens our understanding of daily life in antiquity through the study of textile manufacture and use during the Roman period.
