The Oxford Classical Dictionary ハードカバー – 2003/5/1
"A masterpiece of classical scholarship and research.... The tremendous resources it contains could be very helpful for adult Sunday School teachers, pastors and others to help liven up lessons with accurate historical, archaeological, and other interesting information that is not readily available in most books and commentaries."--Books in Review
"The thoroughly revised third edition of The Oxford Classical Dictionary is a splendid work of reference. Besides traditional topics in classics, its interdisciplinary approach offers new or greatly expanded coverage of formerly slighted subjects....Essential."--Choice

How in the world one person could ever collate all this information is incalculable. The scholarship that has gone into this weighty tome over hundreds of years represents the very best of human endeavour and provides a million reasons why one should study the classics and classical history. If you have even the slightest interest in the past you can sit and read this page after page. The excitement of discovering fragments from the hundreds of authors about whom we know only the sketchiest details: reading the adventure stories of the Greek Myths, "Homer," Xenophon, Herodotus, Thermopylae, Carthage, Sulla, Augustus, Julius Caesar, the pompous Cicero, Hadrian...... following the development of the law, philosophy, mathematics, literature, military theory, coinage: marvelling at the social structures in Greece and the bizarre lives of the Roman Emperors.
A minor quibble: some of the cross-referencing is a little unreliable and there are several headings that are not there which is a pity
Accept my promise that you will never need to buy another book to pass away those sleepless nights if you're anything like me. The reference book to end all reference books, and a great way to learn about our own past and origins.
The price is hefty, but worth it - collecting a series a books covering the breadth of information covered here would be far more expensive. It is not limited to the 'Golden Age', but covers developments in late antiquity - most articles take a historical overview of their topic, not just a snapshot. As an example: the article on the mythical figure of Oedipus does not review the well-known story as given by Sophocles' "Oedipous Tyrannos", but ealier and later versions of the story too.
The fault lies less in the content than in the organisation. If you are looking up a historical or literary figure, then it is fine, but working out what heading a particular topic can be found is an extremely frustrating process. Trying to second-guess an editor seems a pointless exercise; when even a "Thomson Directory" provides a cross-referencing index, how can omitting one here be justified?
In conclusion, this is an excellent resource; but at this price, it feels a little too skimped on production values.
