Glossary of Names


It is a frequent, though not universal, practice to Latinize Greek names, then Anglicize the Latin forms, at least in pronunciation. I have generally avoided this practice, but have followed it on some occasions. Names ending in ees have been made to end in es; some names end (falsely) in an, as Danaän, Boiotian. Some endings in e have been changed to a, as Ida (not Ide), Hera (not Here). Other Anglo-Latin forms are: Apollo, Argives, Athens, Centaurs, Egypt, Hades, Helen, Hermes, Jason, Myrmidons, Priam, Rhodes, Thrace and Thracian, Titans, Trojans, Troy.

This glossary is not meant to be a complete index, but gives at least one reference for each name in question (frequently there is only one) except in the case of major characters, for whom only a complete index would be useful. References are to book and line.
