Greek names of authors are sometimes written on the original object in genitive case. Here, we give the nominative case of the names.
NOTE ON the initial of middle name for greek names (e.g. Achilles A.).:
In greek names, the initial letter next to the given name is the first letter of the father's name, not a second name. The fashion of multiple given names is not greek, but lately it is used as a solution to the problem of honouring both grandparents.

This monumental panorama of greek language, was first published in 1953, but its compilation started in 1930. The Introduction (vol.1) by Dimitrakos, is a vivid, emotional briefing about the project, about all the eminent philologists and their tremendous efforts to combine all phases of greek in one dictionary.
Although words that are in common use in greek after the 1950s are obviously not included, it is still my most reliable companion.

Albin Lesky, professor at the university of Vienna. The book (lang:german) was published in 1957 and was an immediate success. Lesky died in Innsbruck, Austria on the 28th of February, 1981, 85 years old.
The first edition in greek was published in 1965 (1964). Here is some interesting information from the translator's note:
«...professor Lesky has done everything in his power to facilitate the greek edition and his interest was literally moving. Not only did he give up his rights as author (copyright), but he asked the publishing house Francke in Bern to do the same, which they promptly did...»
The book is a classic in its area, indispensable not only to philologists, but for every person who loves literature: it is written in a beautiful flowing style, simple, and in the same time it gives all the references a scientist needs for further reading.
