  • Description This English translation of Franco Montanari’s Vocabolario della Lingua Greca is recognized as the most important modern dictionary for Ancient Greek. It brings together 140,000 headwords taken from the literature, papyri, inscriptions and other sources of the archaic period up to the 6th Century CE, and occasionally beyond. Translated and edited under the auspices of The Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, DC, this online version is based on the completely revised 3rd Italian edition published in 2013 by Loescher Editore, Torino.
