Note on Water Measurements by Frontinus

by Ilia Rushkina

Thayer's Note:

a I wish to express my thanks to the author for volunteering to write this note specially for LacusCurtius; and he has even ceded it to the public domain.

Dr. Rushkin (curriculum vitae) is a physicist whose research and publications include various topics in fluid dynamics; but his interests also extend to Graeco-Roman history (see his blog), and he has several translations of ancient authors to his credit: in sum, the ideal person to address the subject of the article presented here.

A Russian paraphrase of this paper with additional explanatory material may be found at Симпосий.
