About the Book
Reviews"This work significantly updates a reference guide that catalogues the Greek texts, from Homer to selected authors up into the nineteenth century, present in the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae, as well as works known to the project but not yet present in the online databank. The level of detail is impressive and the coverage unmatched in any other source."—Donald J.
