Abstract

This article examines a number of key terms in Pollux' discussion of the anatomy of the human spine as a way of assessing both his reliability in regard to technical language of all sorts and the relative strengths and weaknesses of two major representatives of the modern philological and lexicographic tradition, the Liddell-Scott-Jones Greek-English Lexicon and the new Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek.
