The Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek

Post by Stephen Carlson » July 29th, 2015, 6:48 pm

I saw a link to the Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek: http://www.brill.com/products/online-re ... eek-online

Does anyone know anything about it?

(Unfortunately, it is begging to be abbreviated as BDAG.)

It's a translation of an existing Italian lexicon that (so I've been told) is okay, but not great. That's all I know about it.

Yeah, that's ringing a bell. Maybe it was discussed on Facebook? I can't find anything here.

It should have much more current information than LSJ.

Now that it is out, has anyone looked at it yet?

That preview file contains a number of sample pages. The content looks good.

The price on Amazon for a two-volume print edition is $120.

They Brill site mentions a one-volume edition. I cannot find that.

Online access through Brill is $230. http://dictionaries.brillonline.com/montanari

There is a request out to Logos to add it to their products.
