Technical lexicon

Parma, Biblioteca Palatina, ms. Parm. 1278, f. 210r.
Incipit of NH, book 35.

This section hosts a critically analyzed glossary of Greek and Latin technical lexicon.

Occurrences of terms from papyri, inscriptions, ancient lexica and scholia are included. It consists in a diachronic study of terms, in order to show their evolution and change in use, even in relation to the development of art, artistic canons and aesthetic judgments. In order to get these goals, every word is examined within its literary, historical and cultural context of transmission.
