Julius Frontinus was appointed by the Emperor Nerva to the post of water commissioner for the city of Rome in 97 CE. In On the Water-Rights of the City of Rome he documents his duties, responsibilities and accomplishments during his first year in office. He also sketches the history of the aqueducts and furnishes a wealth of technical data. This is the most authoritative edition of this work to be published to date.
Reviews & endorsements
"The edition [R. H. Rodgers] has produced, longingly anticipated and warmly heralded by many water researchers for many years now, is an impeccable example of scholarship. Its arrival is to be celebrated, as it gives us a new and exciting milestone in Frontinus studies. The volume is rich in every kind of detail that a water scholar might care to know."
-Ann Olga Koloski-Ostrow, Brandeis University, The Classical Bulletin
