Synagoge = Synagōgē lexeōn chrēsimōn : texts of the original version and of MS. B by Ian Campbell Cunningham( )

9 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review text: "Die neue Ausgabe der Synagoge ist praktisch die erste Ausgabe, die diesen Namen verdient. Es ist ein grundsolides und zuverlässiges Werk, das eine große Lücke unserer Kenntnis schließt; wir haben dem Autor für seine langjährige und aufopferungsvolle Arbeit zu danken:"Helmut von Thiel in: Byzantinische Zeitschrift 2/2005
Characters by Theophrastus( Book )

35 editions published between 1929 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume collects important examples of Greek literary portraiture." "The Characters of Theophrastus consists of thirty fictional sketches of men who are each dominated by a single fault, such as arrogance, boorishness, or superstition. Unassuming in style, his character sketches nonetheless bear resemblance to the vivid figures of the period's New Comedy. The Hellenistic poet Herodas wrote mimes, a popular Greek entertainment in which one actor or a small group portrayed a situation from everyday urban life, concentrating on depiction of character rather than on plot. Here too in a new text and translation are substantial portions of the mimes of Sophron, a Syracusan of the 5th century B.C. whose work Plato is said to have enjoyed, as well as a selection of anonymous mime fragments." "The extant work of Sophron and the anonymous mime fragments are newly added to the Loeb Classical Library in this edition. And Jeffrey Rusten and Ian Cunningham have updated their editions of Theophrastus and Herodas (both first published in 1993) in light of the latest scholarship."--Jacket

9 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With more than 50,000 glosses, the dictionary of Hesychios of Alexandria (approx. 500 AD), the most comprehensive dictionary of antiquity, giving posterity access to the massive collections of Hellenistic and Imperial lexicographers, is at the same time an extraordinarily important source for modern Greek lexicography and comparative linguistics.

Synagoge = [Synagoge lexeon chresimon] : texts of the original version and of MS. B by Ian C Cunningham( )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "Synagoge" (Gk: collection of useful word explanations) is one of the most important lexicographical sources from early Byzantine times. The anonymous author quotes extracts from the works of ancient authors which have not been preserved elsewhere and gives details of customs and myths from the epoch. At the same time, he presents his own age and provides a rich source of information on education and scholarship. The present edition combines all the available manuscripts of the oldest version of the "Synagoge", and thus provides the first complete and critical survey of

Hesychii Alexandrini lexicon by Hesychius( Book )

in Greek, Ancient and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dictionary of Hesychios of Alexandria (approx. 500 AD), with more than 50,000 glosses the most comprehensive dictionary of antiquity, gives posterity access to the massive collections of Hellenistic and Imperial lexicographers, and, at the same time, is an extraordinarily important source for modern Greek lexicography and comparative linguistics. A textual base which meets modern standards was not established before Kurt Latte's epoch-making edition, based on a new collation of the sole existing ms. together (for the first time) with the parallel base of what is known as the Cyrillus Glossary (Vol. 1: Alpha-Delta 1953, Vol. 2: Epsilon-Omikron postum 1966). The continuation of Latte's edition was commissioned by the Royal Danish Academy and undertaken by Peter Allan Hansen; the edition completed by Ian C. Cunningham.--Publisher information
