From the starting-point of the Codex Casinensis there is progress still to be made, I believe, especially by taking into account the idiosyncrasies of its twelfth-century scribe, Peter the Deacon of Monte Cassino, a man notorious for literary affectation but nonetheless an intriguing figure in the long process by which classical antiquity was rediscovered and appreciated.
They encompass not only the stuff of history, archaeology and technology but extend to such matters as the exacting details of Roman law and the intricacies of fractions in Roman arithmetical computation. Under such circumstances, a commentator may perhaps be forgiven superficiality of a sort on the one hand and a certain speculative latitude on the other.
I have done what I could to give appropriate attention to content and interpretation as well as to text and language.

I profited enormously from the resources of the Harvard College Library during a term as Visiting Lecturer in , and in I enjoyed the congenial hospitality of the Department of Classical Studies at the University of Michigan. The edition and commentary took on a preliminary form during the year —7, the period for which I was honoured to be a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellow.
As a Fellow in Byzantine Studies at Dumbarton Oaks in I discovered that the architecture and topography of Rome constitute an unadvertised strength of its library.
Frontinus: de Aquaeductu Urbis Romae by R.H. Rodgers
To all these institutions, and to the supportive band of colleagues and friends who comprise them, I express sincere and lasting gratitude. Both text and commentary are by their very nature tralaticious endeavours, and far beyond reckoning are the debts I owe to my predecessors.
The bibliography will reveal some at least of the crucial help I have garnered from women and men who represent an extensive range of scholarly expertise over a period of more than five centuries. For help and support of various sorts over many years I respectfully acknowledge Crawford Greenewalt Jr, W. It goes without saying that none of these persons is responsible for any follies in which I have persisted. Helena Fracchia and Maurizio Gualtieri accompanied me on pleasant outings among the remains of the aqueducts and will attest that I was totally unprepared for their breathtaking majesty.
Don Faustino Avagliano, librarian and archivist, graciously received me on two separate visits to Monte Cassino. Long and pleasant hours were spent in great libraries at Harvard, Ann Arbor and Berkeley; in many cases I found rewarding resources in their numerous branches, notably the Houghton Library at Harvard and the Bancroft Library at Berkeley.
My own library at the University of Vermont has proudly maintained a strong collection in classical studies; for books not available here I am grateful to Connell Gallagher in Special Collections for an occasional purchase, and to Nancy Rosedale, Lisa King, Barbara Lamonda and Daryl Purvee in the interlibrary loan department for constant labours on my behalf.

He sketches the history of the aqueducts, furnishes a wealth of technical data and quotes verbatim from legal documents. This edition is the first since to be based on the single authoritative witness discovered at Monte Cassino in and is also the first to take into account the idiosyncrasies of its twelfth-century scribe, Peter the Deacon, a man notorious for literary affectations of his own.
Rodgers provides the first full commentary since the early eighteenth century, dividing his attention between text and language on the one hand and content and interpretation on the other. Read more Read less.
