Logeion

The University of Chicago
Use one app to look up any Greek or Latin word: Logeion was developed at the University of Chicago to provide simultaneous lookup of entries in the many dictionaries and reference works that make up the Perseus Classical collection. Most works represented in this app are based on digitized texts from the Perseus Digital Library at Tufts University. In addition, for frequent words, some frequency and collocation information is given plus examples from the corpus at perseus.uchicago.edu.
