This section provides cross-references for the regions, places, and topographical features mentioned in the paradoxographical texts. Names will generally be listed under the English form derived from the Latinized equivalent of the Greek, as these forms are found more commonly than transliterations from the Greek, especially in the older literature which constitutes the bulk of material linked to from this site. The Greek names will be given alongside the main entries.

Further information may be found in two reference works available online at the Perseus Project:

     Stillwell et al (eds), Princeton Encyclopedia of Classical Sites (1976)

     Smith, Dictionary of Greek and Roman Geography (1854)

Of these, the Princeton Encyclodpedia is authoritative and clearly more up-to-date, while Smith's dictionary is more comprehensive in the number and often the length of its entries, and is by no means without current value and interest. Hazlitt's compendious Classical Gazetteer of 1851 indexes some place-names that do not appear in either of the above works; however, the entries are very brief and without supporting references.

There are a number of existing projects dedicated to providing geodata for the ancient and Graeco–Roman world; these include Pleiades, Google Ancient Places (including an extension to Pleiades), and DARMC. While it would be technically possible to use the datasets made available by such projects to create a customized 'map of paradoxography', that is beyond the current ambitions for this site, and links will be provided to Pleiades maps where available. 

For readers of German, the Pauly–Wissowa Realencyclopädie is gradually being put online as part of the Wikisource project; however, while it remains incomplete, the links for the entries in this section will be to the Princeton Encyclopedia and Smith's Dictionary
