Collegiate Education. By the Rev. Thomas Dix HINCKS, M.R.I.A. Professor of Hebrew, and Master of the Classical School

in the Belfast Institution.

THIRD EDITION,
WITH GREAT ADDITIONS AND AMENDMENTS.

THE CHEAPEST GREEK LEXICON.

Square 12mo. Price 10s. 6d. bound. In submitting a new edition to the public, it has been a great object to render it more extensively useful by considerable additions, without materially altering the size or price. This could only be effected by the use of various contractions and the introduction of fewer quotations; but nothing has been omitted which was necessary for explanation. By this means several works have been included, especially the works of the great historians, Hercdotus and Thucydides; the Odyssey of Homer; Anacreon; the Olympics of Pindar; some Idyls of Theocritus ; the Nubes of Aristophanes; the Septuagint; and some others, as will be seen by the index. These, in addition to the works included in the former edition, will include illustrations of the language at different periods and in different dialects.
