Chapter Summary

The preparation of scholarly editions of primary sources has long been a fundamental activity of classical scholarship. For literary and documentary works, an edition comprises the systematic presentation of a text, carefully constituted from available exemplary manuscripts and variously augmented by scientific apparatus, textual and historical commentary, translation and imagery. A surprising number of works from classical antiquity still lack satisfactory modern editions. An outstanding example of a work too long ill-served is the large format, small-scale world map known commonly as the Peutinger map. Understanding of the Peutinger map can derive exceptional benefit from a judicious combination of the old approaches and the new. Its first comprehensive re-examination in almost a century is now well on the way to completion.
