Publisher's Description

A clear and approachable dictionary designed to serve the needs of today?s Latin users

Though it is a language that predates the dawn of the Roman Empire, Latin continues to influence many areas of modern life.

This latest addition to Penguin?s successful dictionary series is one of the most comprehensive concise Latin dictionaries ever published and includes:
? Vocabulary drawn from three centuries of key classical authors
? Feature boxes on important points of grammar and language
? Appendices on Latin terms in common use, names and places from myth and history, and a chronology of Roman authors and emperors.

Students and professionals alike will find this an indispensable guide to the language, from amo, amas, amat to veni, vedi, vici.
