Abstract:

This book provides the first full edition and commentary of the Oxyrhynchus
Glossary (POxy 1802 and 4812). This is a unique document both for the
history of Greek lexicography and for the study of the cultural and
linguistic exchange between the Greeks and the "others" in the Hellenistic
near East. The fragment contains a fully alphabetized glossary with lemmas
defined as "Persian," "Babylonian," and "Chaldaean," as well as lemmas
taken from Greek dialects or common Greek. The entries are rich in
quotations from ancient authorities including Berossus, Apollodorus and
Erasistratus. This glossary had never been analyzed in depth previously.
Francesca Schironi provides a comprehensive introduction and commentary
that places the Oxyrhynchus Glossary into the wider context of Greek
lexicography and scholarship, discusses its interest for non-Greek
languages and the problems related to linguistic exchanges in the Near
Eastern areas, and shows the uniqueness and value of this document. The
Oxyrhynchus glossary and this study will be of interest to classicists,
papyrologists, comparative philologists, and scholars interested in the
history of Greek lexicography and scholarship.
