The Oxford Latin Dictionary is the world’s most authoritative dictionary of classical Latin, with comprehensive coverage of the language from its beginnings until AD 200. More than fifty years in the making, it was finally published as a single volume in 1982 and has since sold over 25,000 copies.
The new Second edition (in two volumes with a slipcase) contains 40,000 headwords and 100,000 senses, informed and enriched by more than 400,000 illustrative quotations taken from over 700 classical sources, each now conveniently arranged under the appropriate sense or subsense.
With revised English translations, expansion of many abbreviations, and clearer labelling throughout the text, the new design is a masterpiece of concision and clarity. Furthermore, the supplementary material has been completely rewritten and includes a new introduction by noted scholar Dr Christopher Stray.
The new edition of this magnificent work of scholarship and miracle or lexicography will play its part in keeping the classical world alive for contemporary readers and is essential for all scholars of Latin, as well as researchers, advanced students, and translators.
