Topics in the "Pictorial Dictionary" (A-Z)

The following sections display the contents of the collection organized by the A-Z topics as identified by Nash in the Pictorial Dictionary. The titles and text of each topic are provided (courtesy of the American Academy in Rome) from the original, as well as nearly all of the photographs by Nash that appear in the book. The only images that were excluded are those of supporting data such as numismatic evidence, drawn plans, fragments from the marble Forma Urbis map, etc. Some 80 photographs by Nash (but not present in the published volumes) have been added to enrich the offerings . Source materials for each entry are provided on the Bibliographic References page.
