Ancient Greek is a language like no other. It records an astonishing array of great works in different genres, stretching across a thousand years of history. Homer, the most influential poet ever, recited in the matchless cadences of the epic literary Greek dialect. The Apostle Paul, the Four Evangelists, and the other authors of the New Testament also left their accounts in Greek, using Koine, the beautifully clear conversational Greek spoken in the eastern Mediterranean of their day. Likewise, Sappho, Euripides, Aristophanes, Herodotus, Plato, Demosthenes, and many other ancient authors wrote in Greek, each with a distinct style that makes their individual voices live across the centuries.

Publisher: Wipf & Stock Publishers | Number Of Pages: 988 | Publication Date: 2005-11 | ISBN-10: 159752333X | DjVu | 32 Mb

The dictionary is very thorough and useful especially for scholars and students. It is not an ordinary dictionary with just explanations but it also provides information about coptic literature, where a certain word could be found. The main difficulty is, that it is not easily scanned, but you have to put a lot of effort if you want to find just a certain datum.

In 1799, French troops near the Egyptian town of Rosetta discovered an ancient basalt slab that would prove to be the key to unlocking Egypt’s mysteries.

Trace the many failed attempts and dead-ends that stumped scholars. Leading experts tell the story of the brilliant, obsessed Jean Francois Champollion, who finally broke the code. And see how, within a few years, the secrets revealed because of the Rosetta Stone had transformed our understanding of the ancient world.
