Second Colloquium of the
Lexicon of Greek Personal Names

Old and New Worlds in Greek Onomastics

Spring Colloquium of the British Epigraphy Society

Sponsored by the British Academy

St Hilda's College, Oxford, 27th - 28th March 2003


This conference, a sequel to that held at the British Academy in July 1998 which explored the value of names in various fields of classical studies, will examine names as a means of measuring and interpreting interaction between Greeks and the cultures and languages with which they co-existed. The theme of 'old and new' refers also to the progress of LGPN itself, as its publication programme moves away from mainland Greece, through Northern Greece to the Black Sea area (LGPN IV) and on to Asia Minor (LGPN V.A and V.B).

The conference will take place at St Hilda's College, Oxford, where accommodation will be available. Early booking is recommended as places are limited.


The programme is now available, and the registration form will be available shortly. Academic enquiries regarding the conference should be addressed to Elaine Matthews at Queries regarding the administration of the conference should be addressed to
