[Stephen of Byzantium’s Ethnica]
Ed. by Billerbeck, Margarethe
Aims and Scope
Published around 530 AD, this comprehensive geographic lexicon documents approx. 3,600 names of places, mountains, bodies of water, and peoples of the ancient world. The new critical edition replaces the long-outdated edition by A. Meineke (1849). This unprecedented modern-language translation of the Ethnica and its annotations (on language, onomastics, and topography) assure that this work will be of interest to a broad range of scholars.
