The Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek is the long-awaited English translation of Franco Montanari's Vocabolaria della Lingua Greca. With an established reputation as the most important modern dictionary for Ancient Greek, it brings together 140,000 headwords taken from the literature of the archaic period up to the 6th Century CE, and occasionally even beyond. Christian literature, papyri and inscriptions are covered well. The Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek is an invaluable companion for the study of the Classics and Ancient Greek, for beginning students and advanced scholars alike.

Translated and edited under the auspices of the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, DC, The Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek is based on the completely revised 3rd Italian edition published in 2013.

Features

* The principal parts of some 15,000 verbs are listed directly following the entry and its etymology. For each of these forms, the occurrence in the ancient texts has been certified. When found only once, the location is cited.

* Nearly all entries include citations from the texts with careful mention of the source and precise translations.

* The Dictionary is especially rich in personal names which have all been checked against the sources for the 3rd Italian edition, and in scientific terms which have been categorized according to discipline.

* Each entry has a clear structure and typography making it easy to navigate.
