Several of the names given cannot be traced; unless this is the result of carelessness or ignorance, the compiler must have had access to sources no longer extant. Editions by C. Bursian (Zurich, 1867), and in A. Riese, Geographi Latini minores (1878); see also Teuffel, Hist. of Roman Literature (Eng. trans., 1900), 445, 1.
