Description
Onomatologos is a term used in later antiquity to describe eminent lexicographers such as Hesychius and Pollux as ‘collectors of words’. It is here used as the title for a major volume of papers in honour of the long-serving editor of the Lexicon of Greek Personal Names (LGPN). The LGPN has had as its primary aim the documentation on a geographical basis of the personal names attested between the earliest use of the Greek alphabet (c750 BC) and the early seventh century AD throughout the Hellenic and Hellenised world, wherever the Greek language and script was used. The 55 contributions to the volume reflect the breadth of LGPN itself, extending to all points of the compass far beyond the Greek heartlands bordering the Aegean Sea.
