'offers not only that breakfast for the mind we keep hearing about, but lunch, tea, dinner, supper and non-stop snacks...offers a cornucopia of accurate and succinct knowledge that would be hard to equal' (Peter Green, Washington Times about the third edition).

For over sixty years, The Oxford Classical Dictionary has been the unrivalled one-volume reference in the field of classics. Now completely revised and updated to include the very latest research findings, developments, and publications, this highly acclaimed reference work will be the most up-to-date and comprehensive dictionary available on all aspects of the classical era. In over 6,700 entries written by the very best of classical scholars from around the world, the Dictionary provides coverage of Greek and Roman history, literature, myth, religion, linguistics, philosophy, law, science, art, archaeology, near eastern studies, and late antiquity.

New entries supplement the existing material, including entries on topics such as Adrasteia, Latin anthologies, Jewish art, ancient religious beliefs, emotions, film, gender, kinship, and many more. Other specific developments include an added focus on two new areas: 'anthropology ' and 'reception'. All entries are written in an accessible style and all Latin and Greek words have been translated to ensure ease of use. Under the editorship of Simon Hornblower, Antony Spawforth, and Esther Eidinow, a huge range of contributors have revised and updated the text, which has made an already outstanding work even better.
The Dictionary covers:

1) politics, government, economy - from political figures to political systems, terms and practices, histories of major states and empires, economic theory, agriculture, artisans and industry, trade and markets

2) religion and mythology - deities and mythological creatures, beliefs and rituals, sanctuaries and sacred buildings, astrology

3) law and philosophy - from biographies of lawgivers and lawyers to legal terms and procedures, from major and minor philosophers to philosophical schools, terms, and concepts

4) science and geography - scientists and specific theory and practice, doctors and medicine, climate and landscape, natural disasters, regions and islands, cities and settlements, communications

5) languages, literature, art, and architecture - languages and dialects, writers and literary terms and genres, orators and rhetorical theory and practice, drama and performance, art, painters and sculptors, architects, buildings and materials

6) archaeology and historical writing - amphorae and pottery, shipwrecks and cemeteries, historians, and Greek and Roman historiography

7) military history - generals, arms and armour, famous battles, attitudes to warfare

8) social history, sex, and gender - women and the family, kinship, peasants and slaves, attitudes to sexuality

Recensione:

Rich, varied, and highly reliable ... Magnificent. An indispensable reference for individuals and libraries alike. (Library Journal)

A brilliant starting place for research into just about any facet of classics one can think of, with a depth and richness of cross-referencing that makes it an ideal and elegant tool (Booklist)

The Oxford name has authority in reference circles, but the invariable question in these days of easy web access is whether the price of the print work is justified. The answer, in the case of The Oxford Classical Dictionary, is a resounding yes. (Booklist)

Authoritative and informative, the work is the best single-volume classical dictionary in English and an essential desktop reference It truly has, as its editors claim, 'no competitor in any language.' (MLA Literary Research Guide)

Scholarly and succinct, the Oxford Classical Dictionary is itself a classic. Perhaps the most appropriate encomium is that it remains the source of first resort for novices and experts alike. Summing Up: Essential. (CHOICE)
