from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Latomus. Revue d'études latines is a Belgian classical scholarly journal that publishes studies and essays in the broader subject of Roman history and archeology as well as Latin studies , the latter also including Middle Latin and Neo-Latin .


The magazine was prepared by the Société d'Études Latines de Bruxelles - Latomus , founded on July 11, 1936, and appeared for the first time in 1937, but was temporarily discontinued during the Second World War. The editors were Marc-Antoine Kugener , Léon Herrmann and Marcel Renard . The name of the magazine is reminiscent of the humanist Bartholomaeus Latomus (1485–1570).
