This book has grown out of the research on the etymology of Homer and his Scholiasts, which Dr. H. Peraki-Kyriakidou and I have conducted. This collaboration has yielded a vast amount of material from which derive some of the references I make in this book. My teaching, especially my graduate course on Etymology from Homer down to his scholiasts, has also brought me into contact with a wealth of corroborating diachronic material, and given me a strong stimulus for a closer examination of ancient poetic etymology. I have endeavored to adumbrate the specificities and the elusiveness of such a complex enterprise as the poetic
etymologizing in a number of articles whose corollaries I briefly summarize in this book.
