Frank Romer teaches and publishes on ancient Greek and Roman history, literature, and religion. He works primarily with texts, languages, and material culture. Currently his research focuses on ancient geography, mapping, and ethnography. His Pomponius Mela's Description of the World provides a scholarly translation of and commentary on the earliest surviving geography book in Latin, the Chorographia of Pomponius Mela (ca. A.D. 44). In addition, he has analyzed historical evidence related to the archaeological finds for excavations at Lugnano in Teverina and Chianciano Terme, Italy, and has developed an interest in Phoenician, Greek, and Roman sites in North Africa.
