Description

In line with the Aldine tradition of publishing contemporary classical scholarship, Paulus Manutius printed this treatise on Roman and Greek measurements of length, weight, and volume by the Italian lawyer Lucas Paetus (1512–1581). This book renewed scholarly interest in the subject, and is adorned with woodcuts, each illustrating an element of classical measurement taken from archaeological expeditions.
