Summary

Summary

The world's most authorative dictionary of ancient Greek. The world's most comprehensive and authoritative dictionary of ancient Greek is now revised and available with a new Supplement. This major event in classical scholarship, edited by Peter Glare, is the culmination of 13 years' painstaking work overseen by a committee appointed by the British Academy, and involving the cooperation of many experts from around the world. The Main Dictionary: Liddell andScott's Greek-English Lexicon (9th edition 1940), is the central reference work for all scholars of ancient Greek, author and text discovered up to 1940, from the 11th centruey BC to the Byzantine Period. The early Greek of authors such as Homer and Hesiod, Classical Greek, and the Greek Old and NewTestaments are included. Each entry lists not only the definition of a word, but also its irregular inflections, and quotations from a full range of authors and sources to demonstrate usage.


Author Notes

Peter Clare is also the editor of The Oxford Latin Dictionary (1982, £195). Work on the new Supplement has been overseen by an academic committee appointed by the British Academy.
