    Aims and Scope

    Eusebius of Caesarea’s Onomasticon has been an essential source for the topography of the Holy Land. Based on Biblical texts and the works of ancient authors, the Onomasticon is still the starting point for establishing the localization of ancient cities. This new edition corrects many errors in the Klostermann edition (1902) and makes reference to new sources to establish the text.

    "In addition to numerous improved readings, Timm is to be applauded in marking conjectures in the text of his edition, not just in the apparatus, thus alerting users to the fragility of some readings. The edition itself presents the newly established Greek text, with a full apparatuses [...] Timm’s excellent work amply demonstrates that "This is the age of the critical edition"."
