The Latin appellatives before the English; in which are given the more certain Etymologies of the Latin Words, their various Senses in English ranged in their natural Order, the principal Idioms under each Sense explained and accounted for, all supported by the best Authorities of the Roman Writers; with References to the particular Book, Chapter, or Verse, where the Citations may be found. III. The ancient Latin names of the more remarkable persons and places occurring in classic Authors, with a short Account of them both historical and mythological; and the more modern Names of the same Places, so far as they are known, collected from the most approved Writers. To which are added, 1. The Roman Calendar, much suller than any yet published. 2. Their Coins, Weights, and Measures. 3. A Chronology of the Roman Kings, Consuls, and more remarkable Events of that State. 4. The Notes of Abbreviation used in ancient Latin Authors and Inscriptions. 5.
