Editorial Reviews

'The authors have made excellent use of the chance to improve what was already a first-class monument of useful scholarship, especially in adding cross-references, bibliography and indices ... this superb achievement will do much to stimulate Homeric scholarship.'Richard Janko, University of California, Los Angeles, Journal of Hellenic Studies, CX, 1990
