Index of Names

This index includes the names of persons (historical and mythological), divinities, days, months, festivals, peoples, and places. Personal names are generally listed according to the form that Macrobius uses; parts of a Roman name that Macrobius does not use are given in parentheses: so, e.g., “Cato, (Marcus Porcius)” rather than “Porcius Cato, Marcus.” I have excluded names that appear only in texts that Macrobius quotes.
