Overview

The Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek (GE), referred to by some as BrillDAG, is the English translation of Franco Montanari’s Vocabolario della Lingua Greca (GI). With an established reputation as the most important modern dictionary for Ancient Greek, it brings together 140,000 headwords taken from the literature, papyri, inscriptions and other sources of the archaic period up to the 6th Century CE, and occasionally beyond. This new Greek-English dictionary is an invaluable companion for the study of 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 by Loescher Editore, Torino.

  • The principal parts of some 15,000 verbs are listed directly following the entry and its etymology
  • Nearly all entries include citations from the texts with careful mention of the source
  • Especially rich in personal names re-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

Endorsements

This work now effectively supersedes the older Liddell-Scott-Jones (LSJ) lexicon.

—Larry W. Hurtado, retired, University of Edinburgh

The Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek is fast becoming one of my favorite books. Congratulations to everyone at Brill on this monumental achievement!

— James D. Ernest, PhD, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.

For a number of years now, scholars at ease in Italian have benefitted enormously from the riches, layout, concision, and accuracy of Professor Montanari's Vocabolario della Lingua Greca, with its added advantage of the inclusion of names. Hence classicists in general will welcome the English version of this very valuable resource.

—Professor Richard Janko, University of Michigan

Franco Montanari is a giant in our field, and his Dictionary is a major leap forward for us….

—Professor Gregory Nagy, Harvard University

Its comparative perspectives and the provision of new lexical data will surely serve to enrich the texts being studied. This is a splendid work and all those responsible for its production and translation are to be most warmly commended.

—Paul Foster, University of Edinburgh, The Expository Times 129, 4.

[...], the new Brill Greek dictionary is a most welcome addition to the current lexicographic store for Ancient Greek and is set to become a primary resource for the study of Ancient Greek, especially as regards non-literary texts and post-classical authors.

—Panagiotis Filos (University of Ioannina), Bryn Mawr Classical Review

    I am extremely grateful to Faithlife for making this fantastic and important resource available at a good price, and to all who helped make the book in the first place. Having an up-to-date replacement for LSJ, in current English with better formatting and better Patristic (era) coverage is so needed. Even for NT work, I think this is important, because it seems overly and unnaturally restrictive that NT lexica only promise to give meanings that they think are in the NT, rather than all the meanings for its words that are in Greek of its time period. I am hopeful that, in time, a similar screen reformatting option will be made at Faithlife, such as is available for the LSJ and BDAG. In any case, it's still wonderful. Thanks and blessings to all involved!
