First published in 2001. This study looks at Homer's use of descriptive expressions for the Gods in his works of the Iliad and the Odyssey. It is an organised and exhaustive digest of Homer's systematic nomenclature for the gods and goddesses. Included here is not just the repository of the formal epithets such as earth-shaker Poseidon or ox-eyed Hera or grey-eyed Athene, but also such supplementary items as words and expressions for family relations, terms of reproach, and adverbial phrases.
First published in 2001 by Olms-Weidmann.
