Overview

This standard Homeric Greek dictionary combines extensive lexicography with pictorial illustrations, providing scholars and students with strong, contextual impressions of this important dialect. Word entries list related nouns and verbs for conceptual coherence in vocabulary acquisition. Verb entries list tense and voice forms for easy reference. The dictionary also includes Homeric hapax legomena. This dictionary, optimized for use with Homeric Greek texts, references where words occur in the Iliad and Odyssey. Rather than being left to imagine a word’s referents and contexts, you’ll see 130 images providing visually and culturally rich illustrations of hundreds of words for maximum semantic content. This volume also offers a linguistic orientation to Homeric Greek with an overview of its unique features.

In the digital edition, this dictionary is enhanced by amazing functionality. It integrates seamlessly with Homeric Greek texts, like Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey and Hesiod, the Homeric Hymns and Homerica, so you can access definitions, illustrations, and references with a click. Tablet and mobile apps let you read on the go. With Logos, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

    I have this book--bought it for nine dollars at a second-hand book store in Berkeley, Ca. I have always thought it is the most over-rated Greek dictionary. Not worth the space it takes up--fortunately, it takes up very small space... It's certainly not worht $24.

    I've got an 1895 copy and the pages look identical. Looking forward to having this resource.

    I have the third printing, March, 1966, of the University of Oklahoma Press 1958 edition of this volume. So far as I can tell the only change from earlier editions would be editor Robin McCoy's preface. Sample pages from the print edition appear identical with known errors retained in the body. The edition I have does include "Corrections from Previous Printings" immediately following the Preface or the fourth page counting the title page. It would be good to incorporate the corrections into the Logos edition if possible. So there are seven corrections in line references, five words with additional line references, one correction in alphabetical order, and one word with an additional definition. I haven't done much with Homer since 1966, but in retirement I would like to revisit the Greek editions. Logos' "seamless integration" would be ideal.
