Dear all,

The Dictionary is a vital for self-studying. Would you please suggest me some valuable dictionary softs for Ancient Greek, of course, they should be free for downloading. I hope they have all functions like the Latin Dict of William Whitaker as below link:


Hope to see your suggestions

Sincerely yours,

Logeion, which includes about all major Greek (and Latin) dictionnaries that are already out of copyright, including LSJ, Middle Liddell, Authenrieth:

In addition, you have Cunliffe's Lexicon which is the one best for reading Homer:

The best online dictionary IMO is Diogenes and that is accessible here: http://www.aoidoi.org/diogenes/Diogenes.cgi
You also install it if you like install a version of it on your computer see here: https://community.dur.ac.uk/p.j.heslin/Software/Diogenes/

While not a stand alone dictionary perhaps, I enjoy using Alpheios within my browser (thanks to another member here who posted about it):
