Chapter Summary

This index section presents a list of ancient author names and occasional terms in Latin that are mentioned in the book Magical Practice in the Latin West . The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. Although in the modern literature on (Graeco-)Roman magical practice it is malign and aggressive magic and prayers for justice, for which there is relatively interesting epigraphic evidence, that have attracted most attention, by far the commonest types of magical practice in antiquity were in a broad sense protective: medical, apotropaic or eudaemonic. Most of the contributions to the book concentrate on literary or epigraphic evidence.

Keywords: epigraphic evidence; Graeco-Roman magical practice
