The Cambridge Greek Lexicon
Author: James Diggle
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Language: English/Ancient Greek
Written by an editorial team based in the Faculty, The Cambridge Greek Lexicon, which has been twenty years in the making, covers the most widely read ancient literary texts, from Homer to the Hellenistic poets, the later historians, and the New Testament Gospels and Acts of the Apostles.
Aimed primarily at students, but also designed to be of interest to scholars, the editors have systematically re-examined the source material and made use of the most recent textual and philological scholarship. The editorial team led by Professor James Diggle, Emeritus Professor of Greek and Latin, consisted of Dr Bruce Fraser, Dr Patrick James, Dr Oliver Simkin, Dr Anne Thompson, and Mr Simon Westripp. The Cambridge Greek Lexicon project would not have been possible without the generous support of our donors.
Employing up-to date lexicographical practices, the new publication provides not only single-word translations, but also detailed information on meaning, context and style.
