The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names is a unique and momentous on-going scholarly project. Its intention is to provide those engaged in the study of the Greek world with a list, accompanied by full, itemized evidence, of any personal name known from literature, inscriptions, papyri, vases, coins, and other objects. The chronological range is from the earliest period (though excluding Mycenean names) to about the seventh century AD; the arrangement, both with each of the alphabetically arranged entries and in the work as a whole, is regional. This first volume in the series covers the Aegean Islands, Cypru s, and Cyrenaica. Volume II, which has now also been published, covers Athens.
