Liddell & Scott (1940) A Greek–English Lexicon, Oxford: Clarendon Press


This template takes the page title and automatically determines the URL for the online entry in the LSJ at the Perseus Project using Module:R:Perseus. For those pages where this does not work, this template has one parameter, which is the entry word romanized in a specific format:

Breathing marks and accents immediately follow the letter they occur on:

  • Rough breathing mark is (
  • Smooth breathing mark is )
  • Acute accent is /
  • Circumflex is %3D (standing in for =)
  • Iota subscript is %7C (standing in for |)
  • Capitalization uses a * before the first character
  • Diaeresis is +

Sometimes the entry name is entirely unpredictable, as with δηλητήρ ‎(dēlētḗr) below.
