As the world’s most authoritative dictionary of Classical Latin, the monumental, two-volume Oxford Latin Dictionary offers unsurpassed coverage of the language of Rome from its beginnings until AD 200. More than half a century in the making and originally published as a series of fascicles in 1968, a single-volume reference work in 1982, and now this indispensable resource is available in a revised and freshly redesigned two-volume second edition.
In addition to 40,000 headwords and 100,000 senses, this dictionary includes a vast collection of illustrative quotations taken from the canon of classical literature, arranged for the first time conveniently under each sense and subsense. It incorporates a significant amount of editorial updating, including revised English translations, expansion of abbreviations, and clearer labeling throughout the text. The new design is a masterpiece of concision and clarity. Finally, the supplementary material has been revised and includes a new introduction by noted Classical scholar Christopher Stray, a Guide to Using the Dictionary, and a redesigned bibliography. The Oxford Latin Dictionary is a comprehensive and authoritative reference work—an absolutely essential work for all serious students of Latin.
By far the most scholarly, reliable, and convenient bilingual dictionary of its scope for any language. The Latinist cannot live without it.
