Название: The Atlas of Ancient and Classical Geography
Авторы: Samuel Butler, Ernest Rhys
The accompanying Atlas has been included in this series for the greaterconvenience of the reader of "Grote's Greece" and other works that ask a continual reference to maps of ancient and classical geography. The disadvantage of having to turn perpetually from the text of a volume to a map at its end, or a few pages away, is often enough to prevent the effective use of the one in elucidating the other. Despite some slight variations of spelling in the classical place-names used by different authors, there need be no difficulty in adapting the same Atlas to various works, whether they are English versions of historians like Herodotus or Livy, or English histories of the ancient world, such as Grote's and Gibbon's. Taking the case of Grote, he preferred, as we know, the use of the "K" in Greek names to the usual equivalent "C," and he retained other special forms of certain words. A comparative list of a few typical names which appear both in the index to his "History of Greece" in this series, and in the index to the present Atlas, will show that the variation between the two is regular and, fairly uniform and easy to remember.
