The Etymologicum Symeonis is an important Byzantine dictionary, which was compiled in the first half of the twelfthcentury. It has been transmitted in two redactions: Etym. Sym. proper, and Magna Grammatica. The latter is a version of the Etym. Symeonis that has been enlarged, around the middle of the thirteenth century, on the basis of the Etymologicum Magnum. Each redaction is preserved in two manuscripts. This edition of letters Γ–Ε is based upon a meticulous collation of the four manuscripts and also on a study of the primary sources used by the compiler of this dictionary (the unpublished Etym. Genuinum, Etym. Gudianum and other lexicographical texts).

While letters Α and Β were had been already published in 1969 (Sell) and 1972 (Gunther), the critical edition of this section of the Etym. Symeonis was a long-time desideratum in Classical and Byzantine studies, and opens up another part of this important text for scholarly research.

Davide Baldi received his PhD degree at the University of Udine in May 2011. He specialized in the study of Greek manuscripts. Among others, his research interests lie on the transmission of the Corpus Aristotelicum and of the Pandectae.

"This is a high-quality edition, both with regard to the editorial and printing aspects. It is to be hoped that Baldi, or others, will continue the task and finally achieve the complete publication of Symeon's work." (Ian C. Cunningham, in: Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 2014.01.14)
