A Poetry Map for LSJ

"When using the Greek-English Lexicon of Liddell-Scott-Jones (LSJ), readers face the problem that many citations of the early Greek poets are to editions which are out of print and have been superseded by works which give different numbers to the fragments. Although their comparationes numerorum provide helpful 'back bearings' to the earlier editions, they do not constitute a convenient method of linking from citations in LSJ. In addition, users of the Thesaurus linguae Graecae (TLG) CD-ROM may have no access to them. Yet LSJ remains the most widely-consulted Ancient Greek dictionary. It would therefore be useful to have a unified way of linking its citations of the poets to the modern editions. This listing undertakes the task."
