(p. xii) (p. xiii) Abbreviations and Spelling

After much thinking, the decision was made to standardize the transliteration of Greek personal and place names, using the more common Latinized form as a default. In general, the transliteration is according to the Oxford Classical Dictionary, 3rd ed., which is easily available for reference in libraries and online. There are a few exceptions, but this is the rule throughout the volume.

Since this book is not intended only for specialists in Greek and Roman art history and classics, I have not abbreviated the names of ancient authors; for the sake of consistency, I have transliterated their names and abbreviated the titles of their individual works according, again, to the system used by the Oxford Classical Dictionary, 4th ed. Where the OCD does not suggest abbreviations, the titles have been presented in full.

Periodical titles are not abbreviated. Footnotes have been avoided, in order to have a smoother presentation; occasional clusters of references in the text are the unhappy consequence of this decision.

The following abbreviations appear in the text for encyclopedias, corpora, and other frequently cited reference works.
