Book Description:

All four editions of the OCD are in my library. I'm sentimental regarding the 2nd edition, of 1970, as it was new when I was beginning grad school. That said, the 4th is a worthy successor and augments well my old companion of the Ancient World.

If you're interested in the OCD then you probably don't need my recommendation. This is the third one I've purchased over the years (editions 2, 3 and 4). It's the standard that gives great, quick help for definitions and descriptions of authors, works, and events from the Graeco-Roman world. I know that a certain online website is probably where a lot of students get their information, but there's no comparison with the authority and helpfulness of the OCD.
