[This large-format volume is in a way an appendix to the Lexicon Topographicum Urbis Romae (LTUR), also published by Quasar. It originates from the authors' theses supervised by Filippo Coarelli, who has written a preface to the book. Donati and Stefanetti follow the tradition that was established by Theodor Mommsen in the first volume of Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum (1862), where he published the Roman epigraphical calendar (Fasti anni Numani et Iuliani), and continued a century later by Attilio Degrassi in his Fasti anni Numani et Iuliani, Inscriptiones Italicae XIII 2 (Roma 1963). Not surprisingly, the volume is divided into twelve chapters, each focusing on one month of the year, whereby the first half of the year is based on the thesis of N. Donati and the second half of the year on that of P. Stefanetti. There follows a conclusion and an appendix on Fasti, presenting a general structure of the months. The book ends with a representative bibliography.]

[The book is a result of systematic research on zoological differences noted in the literary sources that deal with the representation of animals. It is partly a dictionary, partly an encyclopaedia, covering classifications of animals from Homer to Aelian. A lengthy introduction (48 pages) covers the question of the modes of classification of animals, including an overview of the sources and various criteria of classification. The author especially underlines the importance of Aristotle in the history of the classification of animals. Of the following six major chapters each studies one group of classifying terms: 1) the so-called suprageneric terms (forms of living, cattle, "animals" and "bugs"); 2) terms related to savageness and domesticity; 3) terms related to space and movement (land, air, water, regional biotopes of sea and land); 4) terms related to physiology (blood, way of reproduction, diet); 5) terms related to morphology (integument, feet, teeth, wings etc.); 6) various other terms that are not part of a system. These chapters are followed by an appendix, which presents (in translation) the definitions of these zoological terms in ancient Etymologica and Lexica.]
