Brill’s New Jacoby, Second Edition

Purchase Access
Subject: Classical Studies

General Editor: Ian Worthington

Brill’s New Jacoby, Second Edition (BNJ2)
is a revised and enlarged edition of Brill’s New Jacoby (BNJ). New additions include an apparatus criticus and a discussion of the provenance of each fragment where relevant, as well as revised commentaries on the ancient historians in BNJ and updated bibliographies, all of which set BNJ2 significantly apart from the previous edition.

Like Brill’s New Jacoby, this revised edition has texts and historians not included in Jacoby’s Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker I-III. It provides English translations to all testimonia and fragments, critical commentaries, and a brief encyclopedia-style entry about the historian’s life and works, with a select bibliography.

Brill's New Jacoby, Second Edition
is a work-in-progress with publication of the last historian scheduled for 2026. A list of the available historians in alphabetical order can be viewed in the contents tab below.
