a new app for Greek and Latin studies

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 reference works that make up the Perseus Classical collection.

  • Autenrieth’s Homeric Dictionary
  • Slater’s Lexicon to Pindar (1969)
  • Lewis’s Elementary Latin Dictionary (1890)
  • Harper’s Dictionary of Classical Antiquities
  • Princeton Encyclopedia of Classical Sites
  • Smith’s Dictionary of Greek and Roman Geography
  • Smith’s Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities
  • Perseus Encyclopedia

The app draws data from the following Greek and Latin textbooks.

  • Greek: An Intensive Course, by Hardy Hansen and Gerald M. Quinn
  • Reading Greek: Grammar and Exercises, by Joint Association of Classical Teachers
  • Learn to Read Greek, by Andrew Keller and Stephanie Russell
  • Learn to Read Latin, by Andrew Keller and Stephanie Russell

  1. Only because I had 4 years of Latin in high school, I think I’ll try it out for fun. But will wait till there are a few reviews, that indicate it is stable. Nothing worse than an unstable app, unless it is an unstable O/S. Currently no reviews.

  2. They also have a Spanish English dictionary, with 10 very good reviews, with a version 1.0, put out one year ago. Costs $4.99.
    So my conclusion:
    After 1 year, and no update, still at ver 1.0, and good reviews, they (UofCh) programmers are probably pretty good. No garage-shop operation.
    Indicates that they may eventually charge $4.99 for the Latin Greek app, once they get some feedback.
    Or may indicate that the market is so small compared to Spanish, that they won’t ever charge for it. So anyone that wants it, ought to get it now. Think I’ll give it a try.

    1. Hi Gary,
      We are not actually the same people that did the Spanish app:-) but I hope you like it. There will be updates, for adding dictionaries and to fix a bug involving short words (less than 3 char.s) on the phone (working on iPad).

        1. Hmm, interesting. Frankly, I am interested in having more languages represented, but as target languages, i.e. Gk or Lat to Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, French.. But this is really meant as a Classics resource. I would be surprised if there aren’t German dictionaries already out there?
