Description
Abstract (cited)
In this second volume Raybould and Sims-Williams complete their Corpus of Latin inscriptions of the Roman Empire containing Celtic personal names with a final collection of texts and translations. They also list and analyse the Celtic names found in both volumes and map their geographical spread, from the Atlantic to the Black Sea.

The illustration on the front cover shows part of a second-century tombstone in the museum at Mannersdorf am Leithagebirge, Austria (no. PAN 113 in this Supplement). Nertomarus and his wife Toutomara erected it to commemorate themselves. His name Nertomarus is from Celtic nerto- 'strength' and maros 'great' (compare medieval Irish nertmar and Welsh nerthfawr 'strong'), while Touto- mara combines touto- 'people, land' (Irish tuath, Welsh tud) with the feminine mara 'great'.
