August Wilhelm Zumpt

August Wilhelm Zumpt (1815-1877) was a classical scholar, known chiefly in connexion with Latin epigraphy. He was a nephew of Karl Gottlob Zumpt.

August Wilhelm studied in Berlin, and in 1851 became professor in the Friedrich Wilhelm Gymnasium.

His papers on epigraphy (collected in Commentationes epigraphicae, i vols., 1850-54) brought him into conflict with Theodor Mommsen in connexion with the preparation of the Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum, a scheme for which, drawn up by Mommsen, was approved in 1847.
