  •  Henry George Liddell & Robert Scott, A lexicon abridged from Liddell and Scott’s Greek- English lexicon, (Oxford : Clarendon Press, 1992) [Many editions]
  •  Henry George Liddell & Robert Scott, An intermediate Greek-English lexicon : founded upon the seventh edition of Liddell and Scott’s Greek-English lexicon, (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1992) [Many editions].
