Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of taxonomic names that occur in the book The Crustacea, which deals with the chronology, systematics, and symbolism of crustacean artistic representations. The earliest known presence of crustaceans in art can be traced back to ancient Egypt and Assyria. Crustaceans were often present in Roman art from the 1st century BC to the 4th century AD, but they were seldom represented during the medieval period.

Keywords: ancient Egypt; Assyria; Crustaceans; Roman art
