P.Oxy. XLVII 3329

Lexicon (Diogenianus?)

ed. M. W. Haslam

EES: Papyrology Room, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

"The lexicon shows great affinity with that of Hesychius, compiled some centuries later...Hesychius claims as his basic source Diogenianus (of Heraclea in Pontus; Hadrianic), whom he credits with the compilation of a general as opposed to a specialized lexicon ...

"[Diogenianus' lexicon] seems to have bcome almost the standard lexicon of antiquity."
