4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings)

Description

This abridgement of the world's most authoritative dictionary of ancient Greek is based on the 1883 revision.

It includes some discussion of word usage, citing examples and characteristic phrases.

Generally speaking, only words used by late writers and scientific terms have been omitted from the full lexicon.

From Homer downwards, to the close of Attic Greek, care has been taken to include all words, as well as those used by Aristotle, Plutarch in his Lives, Polybius, Strabo, Lucian, and the writers of the New Testament.

There's no other Greek lexicon like it.

Sufficient depth for all but the most demanding reader. Unless you reading Greek is all you, i.e. you are a classicist, not an historian, this is most likely more than enough for your purposes. The pages can be a bit hard to decipher depending on the printing you have, as the new editions are simply photocopies.

This one-volume abridgement of the massive eighty-volume (at last count) Greek-English Lexicon by Liddell and Scott is simply a must for any serious student of ancient Greek. It covers everything from Homeric Greek, through classical Attic, and on to Koine (the Greek of the New Testament). An amazing accomplishment, comparable in scope to the OED, this book represents the combined work of many, many fine scholars.I have used this since the first year I studied Greek, and am thrilled to finally have my own copy!
