References for Classical Authors
Per 22.22B1, "refer from any part of the name not used as entry
element if there is reason to believe that the person's name may be
sought under that part." LC seldom makes such references. Only three
types are (almost) always made:
If you refer from elements of the name other than those discussed in
1 or 2 above, do not change the order of these elements from that in
which they appear in the source where you found them.
- Refer from the heading for a classical author in direct order,
not including elements which do not appear in the heading even if
they are found in the piece in hand (i.e., they do not necessarily
refer from the form in the piece in hand, though this is cited in
full in a 670).
- If the heading consists solely of ism and patronymic, refer from
- Refer from non-standard romanizations found in the piece at
hand, choosing the entry element for the reference (if possible) to
correspond with the entry element in the heading. Do not make
direct or other references from non-standard romanizations.
