The Lexicon Topographicum Urbis Romae (1993‑2000) is a six-volume, multilingual reference work considered to be the major, modern work covering the topography of ancient Rome.[1] The editor is Eva Margareta Steinby, and the publisher is Edizioni Quasar of Rome. It is considered the successor to Platner and Ashby's A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome.

An ongoing series of supplements provides additional coverage of Roman topography and important topics in the archaeology of the city.
