Praised by playwright Arthur Miller as "a delight for anyone with any curiosity about the roots of our Western culture" and by Booklist as "the single most heavily used book on classical studies," The Oxford Classical Dictionary is without doubt the definitive single-volume resource on ancient Greece and Rome. Now this redoubtable classic is available in electronic form on CD-ROM. Here are over six thousand A to Z entries, ranging from long articles to biographies to brief identifications. Readers can find information on virtually any aspect of the classical world--athletics, bee-keeping, botany, magic, Roman law, philosophy, religious rites, postal service, slavery, navigation, and the reckoning of time. And with the OCD on CD-ROM, readers can find this information in seconds. Both the thousand-page volume and the CD-ROM are available as a package, with the CD included in a sleeve in the inside back cover of the book. Together they make an unparalleled resource for anyone interested in Greece or more

Review quote

"An extraordinary lexicon. The CD is easy to use, allowing simple or advanced searches that are not possible in the print format.... Truly a masterly work, this is recommended for academic and medium to large public libraries."--Library Journalshow more
