Over 6,700 entries
Unrivalled in scope for over sixty years, this established reference work has been thoroughly updated for this edition to reflect modern scholarship. Written by distinguished scholars from around the world, it covers all aspects of the classical world from literature and history to religion, science, and archaeology.
As well as providing factual information, the Dictionary contains many thematic entries on subjects relevant to the 21st century such as nationalism, race, gender, and ecology. Anthropology and reception have been added as new subject areas, covering topics such as creolization and kinship, as well as dance reception and translation.
The most authoritative and accessible dictionary of its kind, this is an essential reference for both scholars and non-specialists with an interest in the classical era.
Full text version of The Oxford Classical Dictionary, Third Edition. Edited by Simon Hornblower and Antony Spawforth. Oxford; New York: Oxford University Press, 1996.
An authoritative one-volume guide to all aspects of the ancient world - political, economic, philosophical, religious, artistic, and social.
Six thousand entries ranging from long articles to brief identifications, readers can find information on virtually any topic of interest—athletics, bee-keeping, botany, magic, Roman law, religious rites, postal service, slavery, navigation, and the reckoning of time. The Dictionary profiles every major figure of Greece and Rome, from Homer and Virgil, to Plato and Aristotle, to Tacitus and Thucydides, to Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great. (The Oxford Classical Dictionary also covers many important but lesser known figures who will not be found in other reference works.) Readers will find entries on mythological and legendary figures, on major cities, famous buildings, and important geographical landmarks, and on legal, rhetorical, literary, and political terms and concepts. Equally important, the Oxford Classical Dictionary features extensive thematic articles that offer superb coverage of topics of interest to both scholars and general readers, exploring everything from medicine and mathematics to music, law, and marriage.
Die Fragmente der griechischen Historiker continued is the expansion of Felix Jacoby's monumental work on ancient fragmentary historians, Die Fragmente der griechischen Historiker, which was published between 1923 and 1958. Before his death in 1959, Jacoby had managed to complete the first three out of the six parts he had initially planned, namely (I) Genealogy and Mythography, (II) Zeitgeschichte (political-military history) and (III) Horography and Ethnography. Other researchers then set out to continue Jacoby's massive task and add the parts the initial author had not been able to publish himself. The publication of Die Fragmente der griechischen Historiker Part V on Geography is in the hands of chief editor Hans-Joachim Gehrke (Berlin). Eventually, part five will be published in print; in the meantime Brill's online edition provides access to the rich materials already available. In addition, Brill's online edition of FGrHist V will be regularly updated and expanded.

Before his death in 1959, Jacoby had managed to complete the first three out of the six parts he had initially planned, namely (I) Genealogy and Mythography, (II) Zeitgeschichte (political-military history) and (III) Horography and Ethnography. Other researchers then set out to continue Jacoby's massive task and add the parts the initial author had not been able to publish himself. In 1998-1999 three fascicles of Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker Part IV A (Biography ) were published under the supervision of chief editor Guido Schepens (Leuven). Currently, the further publication of FGrHist IV is undertaken by chief editor Stefan Schorn (Leuven). Members of the Editorial Board are G. Arrighetti (Pisa), M. Erler (Würzburg) and G. Schepens (Leuven). Individual sections or subsections have been assigned to various section editors. Eventually, part IV will be published in print; in the meantime Brill's online edition provides access to the rich materials already available. In addition to that, Brill's online edition of FGrHist IV will be regularly updated and expanded.
Felix Jacoby (1876-1959) edited, over many years, the “fragments” of the Greek historians who are not preserved complete: that is, quotations from their works in other writers. In his multi-volume work, Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker (for which he requested the abbreviation FGrHist) he created one of the stupendous research sources in the field of ancient history. The work outlived two world wars, Jacoby's forced retirement from his chair at the University of Kiel, his exile from his native land, his return to Germany, and the death of his beloved and faithful companion and helper, his wife. The appearance of this work in the modern form on Jacoby Online offers an opportunity to review the life and career of this great scholar and the organization of his complex masterpiece.
