What Does An Asterisk (*) After a Place Name Mean?
An asterisk (*) after a place name denotes that its entry is cross-listed in two categories or subcategories. This can occur in two instances:
The entry for a temple that, presently or historically, was established to serve an identifiable constituent sub-group of a Church sui iuris will be cross-listed to both the sub-group and to its parent Church sui iuris.
The entry for a temple that, presently or historically, was established by a Church sui iuris to afford pastoral care to the faithful of another, different, Church sui iuris will be cross-listed to both Churches sui iuris.
What Does A Number After A Place Name Mean?
It was decided that, when there are (or were) more than a single temple in a particular city or town, the entries would be alphabetically ordered by the names of the temples. The first entry has no number after the place name. Subsequent entries are numbered beginning with zero (0) and continuing through nine (9). In instances when there are more than eleven (11) temples in a particular city or town, numbers higher than 9 appear as 91, 92, etc (because the software used in the directory counts differently than humans do).
We honor the relics of the martyrs, that we may adore Him whose martyrs they are. We honor the servants that their honor may be reflected upon their Lord who Himself says: "He that receives you receives me."
St. Jerome, Epistle 109:1, NPNF II, 6:212
