Abstract:

The Oxford Classical Dictionary covers the Greco-Roman world. It includes articles and definitions regarding literature, art, philosophy, law, biography, mythology, science, geography, daily life, and broad cultural and historical trends. Containing over six thousand entries ranging from long articles to brief definitions, the OCD provides authoritative, signed articles with bibliographies and incorporates the insights and interests of a new generation of classical scholars. There is substantial coverage of women in the ancient world, sexuality, Asia and the Far East, Jews, and early Christians. Thematic articles reflect the current emphasis on multidisciplinary approaches to classical studies.
