This lexicon provides scholars and students of Greek civilization with a list, supported by evidence, of personal names known from literature, inscriptions, papyri, vases, coins, and other objects dating from the earliest period to the 7th century A.D. It promises to replace the mid-19th-century work of Pape and Benseler and offer fresh impetus to a wide range of historical and literary research. Produced under the auspices of the British Academy, the complete lexicon will be published in six volumes.
