TLG Canon of Authors and Works

Geographical Epithets

Geographical Epithets are descriptive words conjoined to the name of the authors and denoting a location (e.g. place of birth or place of literary activity or place of residence in an official or ecclesiasrtical capacity). The geographical epithets used in the Canon are not meant to be exhaustive in charting the lives and activities of authors. They are most useful when used to distinguish authors of the same name, such as AESCHYLUS Trag. Atheniensis and AESCHYLUS Trag. Alexandrinus
