Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Liddell and Scott's Greek-English Lexicon is the most comprehensive and up-to-date ancient Greek dictionary in the world. Used by every student of ancient Greek in the English-speaking world, the dictionary covers every surviving ancient Greek author and text discovered up to 1940, from the Pre-Classical Greek of Homer and Hesiod to Classical Greek to the Hellenistic Period, including the Greek Old and New Testaments. This monumental work is now available with a brand new Revised Supplement. Representing the culmination of thirteen years' work, the new Supplement is a complete replacement of the 1968 Supplement. Nearly twice the size of the 1968 edition, with over 20,000 entries, it adds to the dictionary words and forms from papyri and inscriptions discovered between 1940 and the 1990s as well as a host of other revisions, updatings, and corrections to the main dictionary. Linear B forms are shown within entries for the first time, and the Revised Supplement gives the dictionary a date-range from 1200 BC to 600 AD. It is fully cross-referenced to the main text, but additions have been designed to be easily used without constant reference to the main text.

Synopsis:

Liddell & Scott's Greek-English Lexicon (9/e 1940) is used by every student of ancient Greek in the English-speaking world, and covers every surviving ancient Greek author and text discovered up to 1940. In 1968 the Lexicon was updated with a Supplement, which has now, after 13 years' painstaking work, been completely revised and updated.

Synopsis:

This edition combines the text of the ninth edition of Liddell and Scott's Greek-English Lexicon with an extensively revised and expanded Supplement. The Supplement is the culmination of thirteen years of research and constitutes a full revision of the previous 1968 Supplement. Containing over 20,000 entries, the Supplement includes coverage of words and forms from papyri and inscriptions discovered up to the present day. Entries in the Supplement also incorporate Linear B forms for the first time, extending the Lexicon's time span back to 1200 BC.

Synopsis:

This is the ninth edition of what is universally regarded as the standard Greek-English lexicon. It is an essential tool for epigraphists, papyrologists, philologists, and students and teachers of Greek. This edition includes Barber's 1968 Supplement.

About the Author

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.
