The Greek Lexicon Project was first established with the help of a donation by John Chadwick in 1997. We are now entering a crucial phase with work on the preparation of the digital files of the Lexicon due to be completed in the summer of 2016.

We are not only replacing out-of-date terminology with modern and precise English and omitting obsolete readings and interpretations, but also re-examining the source material used in other dictionaries and examining the new material which has been discovered since the end of the nineteenth century.
