The so-called Antiatticista is a Greek Atticistic lexicon an important for realizing the Atticism of the 2d cent. CE. The nameless writer authorized a broader thought of Attic language not like the main rigorous Atticists. For this (polemic) objective, he used a few older resources (in specific Hellenistic ones, akin to Aristophanes of Byzantium) the place he may well locate wealthy quotations from classical authors, in particular from comedian poets. provided that lots of them aren't any longer extant, this paintings now represents the one resource for them. the 1st severe variation of this lexicon is prefaced by way of a survey of its textual culture, direct and oblique, which issues its courting to the Byzantine lexicon Synagoge. The authorship, the typology, and the resources of the paintings also are investigated. The unedited annotations by way of David Ruhnkenius for his deliberate version of the textual content are appended. accomplished indexes are supplied on the finish of the book.
