Classicianus. Procurator (chief financial administrator) of Britain ad 60–1. His origins and early career are unknown. His name suggests Gallic antecedents, like those of his wife, who was from Trier. He became procurator of Britain in the aftermath of the Boudiccan revolt and was instrumental in having the victorious governor Suetonius Paullinus recalled before the latter's military policies could do further fiscal damage. Much of what we know of Classicianus derives from the tombstone erected by his wife, parts of which were reused in late Roman towers added to the walls of London; clearly he died in office.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
