The Cambridge Greek Lexicon is based upon principles differing from
those of existing Greek lexica. Entries are organised according to
meaning, with a view to showing the developing senses of words and the
relationships between those senses. Other contextual and explanatory
information, all expressed in contemporary English, is included, such
as the typical circumstances in which a word may be used, thus giving
fresh insights into aspects of Greek language and culture. The editors
have systematically re-examined the source material (including that
which has been discovered since the end of the nineteenth century) and
have made use of the most recent textual and philological scholarship.
The Lexicon, which has been twenty years in the making, is written by
an editorial team based in the Faculty of Classics in Cambridge,
consisting of Professor James Diggle (Editor-in-Chief), Dr Bruce
Fraser, Dr Patrick James, Dr Oliver Simkin, Dr Anne Thompson, and Mr
Simon Westripp.
