Scope

Felix Jacoby's Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker (FGrHist), or shortened as the 'Jacoby', was first published between the 1920's and late 1950's. The Jacoby is a standard collection of and commentary on the fragments of 856 Greek historians whose works have survived only in fragmentary form.

Brill’s New Jacoby will completely supersede the traditional 18-volume set known to classical scholars. It will contain:

  • many updated Greek texts
  • English translations of all of the Greek testimonia and fragments
  • a new critical commentary on the texts (and for the first time commentary on those texts that Jacoby did not complete before his death)
  • new authors and fragments not in FGrHist.

Updated twice yearly
