Otto: Die Sprichwörter und sprichwörtlichen Redensarten der Römer
Die Sprichwörter und sprichwörtlichen Redensarten der Römer by A. Otto (1890)
Otto's "proverbs and proverbial sayings of the Romans" is a great reference if your main interest is in Latin sayings that are attested in Latin authors. I'm interested in the longer and broader history of Latin proverbs, but Otto provides a great core of the proverbs attested in ancient Roman sources. Be sure to check out Sutphen's supplement, too!
