Atlas Adjustment: Praesidium

The Map-by-Map Directory and alphabetical gazetteer entries for Praesidium do not match the labels used on “Map 35: Sequana-Rhenus” in the Barrington Atlas and therefore require adjustment.

Directory adjustments

In the Names table on page 535 of the Map-by-Map Directory change the entry in the Name column for “Taricheiai/Zouchis §Zeucheris §Praesidium” to read “Taricheiai/Zouchis/Praesidium §Zeucheris.” Adjust the contents of the Period and Reference columns to match. The adjusted portion of the table should read as follows:

Grid Name Period Modern name / Location Reference
F2 Tarhuna HRL Goodchild 1976, 103
D1 Taricheiai/
Zouchis/
Praesidium

On page 534 in the Map-by-Map Directory add a cross-reference as follows:

Grid Name Period Modern name / Location Reference

Gazetteer adjustment

Insert an entry in the alphabetical gazetteer at the back of the atlas volume as follows:

Praesidium SPN24 D2
Praesidium SPN, 26 C4
Praesidium TUN, 35 D1
Praesidium (…) TUN, 35 C2
Praesidium Iulium POR26 B2

Please note that our update entries follow the conventions of the Barrington Atlas in the formatting of placenames; i.e., modern placenames are presented in italics, ancient placenames in regular type.
