As the readers of this little blog will know by now, LacusCurtius’ Bill Thayer is making William Smith’s Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities available online. Often, archaeological research has improved our understanding of ancient realia, but Smith’s articles are still useful because they collect all written sources.
A week ago, he wrote me that the job was almost finished; only some 25 articles were missing. Today, he added four new articles:
- Ephebus (a young man)
- Tragoedia (tragedies, of course; a very long article)
- Tribula (the corn drag)
- Tripos (the tripod)
So, the work is almost finished!
