This classic textbook consists of a large collection of Latin idioms and phrases organised by topic. Originally published in German as Lateinische Phraseologie, it was translated into English from the sixth German edition with supplementary words and phrases by H.W. Auden. This has been the standard textbook, covering every sphere of activity known to the Romans, from domestic life to politics, law, religion and warfare. It lists in each category all the main expressions used in classical Latin, and concludes with a 50 page index. An indispensible guide to anyone wishing to write, or understand, the language.
