'EGP is divided into twenty-nine sections by twenty-six authors spread through eight chapters. A detailed sixty-four-page index contributes greatly to its ease of use. (...). Within the constraints of a one-volume reference tool, EGP is a remarkable accomplishment. In its breadth and continuous manner of presentation within subject areas, it is more readable than lexicon-style handbooks like, say, the Oxford Classical Dictionary. But in its degree of detail and the sheer extent of its bibliographical guidance, it also surpasses any available single-volume ancilla to Greek studies. Together with the companion volume on Latin philology, it constitutes a wonderfully comprehensive and current, yet not overwhelming, Vogelperspektive of the disciplines of classical studies. Professional scholars and graduate students will find it an invaluable aid to study. In an English translation, it could admirably serve a similar purpose for undergraduates and interested laypersons.' (JAMES P. HOLOKA in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 1999.04.01).
