Cambridge Greek Lexicon



In 2018, Cambridge University Press will be publishing a new Ancient Greek-English Lexicon of intermediate size (a single volume containing approximately 1500 pages), aimed  primarily at students, but taking account of the most recent textual and  philological scholarship.

Instead of relying solely on existing lexicons, the editors have systematically gone back to the original texts in order to  construct their entries, which has enabled us to identify fresh interpretations and insights.

Employing up-to date lexicographical practices, we provide not only single-word translations, but also detailed information on meaning, context and  style. The Lexicon has been over 15 years in preparation. 

To see a sample typeset page, please click here.

For further information, see the pages listed on the left.
