Project Management

The Lexicon editors work in two writing-rooms within the Faculty of Classics, which generously allows us to use its full range of resources, including its outstanding Library.


Through Professor James Diggle, the team reports regularly to a Management Committee chaired by Professor Richard Hunter, the Regius Professor of Greek.

The Management Committee is responsible for financial planning, the relationship with Cambridge University Press, and all broad strategic issues, and it reports to the Faculty Board of Classics, which has overall responsibility for the progress of the Project.
