Greek with same/facing page vocab and commentary

Post by seanjonesbw » Mon May 20, 2019 1:09 pm

I've noticed that there are a few more intermediate Greek readers than there used to be with a decent amount of vocabulary and commentary either below the text on the same page or on the facing page.

Everyone seems to have heard of Geoffrey Steadman's ongoing series and I've also enjoyed Stephen Nimis's editions of Lucian, but it's difficult to find other complete texts formatted this way. Obviously the BCP and Cambridge yellow and green editions make you sing for your supper, but are there any publishers I'm missing that do same/facing page vocabulary and commentary? I'll update the list below if anyone can add to it.

Greek editions with facing vocab and notes/commentary/gloss
  • Geoffrey Steadman - [Aristotle, Plato, Herodotus, Homer, Lysias, Sophocles, Euripides, Xenophon] free pdfs https://geoffreysteadman.com and physical copies also available
  • JACT - Selections. 1. A World of Heroes: Selections from Homer, Herodotus and Sophocles. 2. The Intellectual Revolution: Selections from Euripides, Thucydides, and Plato.

Koine
  • Duckwitz. Reading the Gospel of St. John in Greek: A Beginning
    Reading the Gospel of St. Mark in Greek: A Beginning.
    Reading the Gospel of St. Matthew in Greek: A Beginning
  • Goodrich and Lukaszewski. A Reader's Greek New Testament
  • Hadavas - The Infancy Gospel of Thomas: An Intermediate Greek Reader
  • JACT - New Testament Greek: A Reader
  • McLean - Hellenistic and Biblical Greek: A Graduated Reader
  • Mounce - A Graded Reader of Biblical Greek
  • Newman - The UBS Greek New Testament: A Reader's Edition
  • Whitacre - A Patristic Greek Reader.

edit: cribbed a lot of great stuff from this list http://www.dramata.com/Greek%20intermediate%20books.pdf which is arranged by writer

The intermediate Greek readers from Nimis and Hayes, for example, these works from the Hippocratic Corpus.

Thanks! I'll add them to the list. I just took a quick look through - am I right in saying that some of them have vocab and notes on the same page (like the Homer) and others have facing-page translations?

Thanks Randy - the Lucian I mentioned in my post was actually a Nimis and Hayes edition. They've got a really good thing going on with that series.

Thanks! The Daphnis and Chloe is Bolchazy-Carducci so I've added Longus to their existing listing.
