These contents are supplemented by an ancient and medieval atlas, a link to a virtual catalog of Roman coins, and other recommended links to related sites. The contents of DIR have been prepared by scholars but are meant to be accessible to non-specialists as well. They have been peer- reviewed for quality and accuracy before publication on this site.
|Go to the Imperial Index There, the emperors are listed in a chronological table in order of their dates of rule. The name of each emperor for whom a biographical essay is complete offers a live link to the essay.||Go to the Alphabetical Imperial Index There, the emperors are listed in the alphabetical order of their names, with dates of rule appended. The name of each emperor for whom a biographical essay is complete offers a live link to the essay.|
|Go to the Index of Imperial Stemmata. There, live links lead to the family trees of important imperial dynasties. Live links from the family trees will take you to individual biographies.||Go to the Imperial Battle Index. There, live links lead to the indexes of Battle Descriptions and Battle Maps. Individual descriptions and maps are also cross- linked.|
|Go to the DIR and ORB Ancient and Medieval Atlas There, view maps of the Roman Empire and follow live links to selected maps elsewhere.||Go to the Virtual Catalog of Roman Coins (created and maintained by Prof. Robert W. Cape, Jr. of Austin College).|
Note: Because the Virtual Catalog of Roman Coins
has been reprogramed in a way that makes all its old links invalid, the
DIR can only offer access to this wonderful site via the link here on the
DIR home page. The various links to the VCRC from the individual imperial
essays are no longer functional!!!! We have not removed them because the
manual removal of them would take too long to accomplish.
