A Lexicon of Greek Personal Names offers scholars a comprehensive listing of all named individuals from the ancient Greek-speaking world. The information needed has been compiled from all written sources, literary, epigraphical, papyrological, and numismatic, within a chronological range from the eighth century B.C. to approximately 600 A.D.; the geographical limits match the use of the Greek language in antiquity, from Asia Minor to the Western Mediterranean, the Black Sea to North Africa. With the present volume, LGPN moves into Asia Minor (modern Turkey), to the areas of Pontos, Bithynia, Mysia, the Troad, Aiolis, Ionia, and Lydia. Asia Minor is particularly interesting since it differs from most other regions covered so far in its ethnic and cultural diversity. Personal names are known in abundance from almost all cultures to be found in this area, and they therefore play a prominent role in the study of ethnicity and acculturation.Features* An indispensable aid to study of the ancient Greek world, based on the best and most up-to-date research* Clearly laid out pages provide easy access to complex material
