about

The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names, a major project of the British Academy, offers scholars a fully documented listing of all known personal names from the ancient Greek world. It draws on all the available evidence, primarily inscriptions but also literature, papyri, coins, vases and otherartefacts; chronologically it ranges from the earliest times (though excluding Mycenean names) to about AD 600. It has benefited from the collaboration of scholars in many countries. It is intended to form the basis of a wide range of historical, philological, and literary research. The present volume, III.A, presents the onomastic material from the Peloponnese, Western Greece, Sicily, and Magna Graecia, the last area offering for the first time a substantial number of Greek names in Latin. It continues the series begun with Volume I, The Aegean Islands, Cyprus, and Cyrenaica,and Volume II, Attica.

Editorial Reviews

`an established and indispensable part of the armoury of research tools available to both philologists and historians ... particular strength of LGPN ... is, the way in which it unites data from the literary tradition with the epigraphic material ... the Lexicon provides a consolidated andcomprehensive survey of a kind that, for some areas, has not been available since the indices of the now antiquated Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum; as such the LGPN is an enormous boon to a wide range of potential users ... the LGPN continues to become ever more useful as it develops and grows. Inshort, it ought now to be an essential feature of any serious research library for classical philology and related fields.'R W B Salway, Bryn Mawr Classical Review.
