Attikos provides the reader with in-text access to morphological data and short definitions for these texts in their entirety, along with easy access to entries in Logeion, which includes lexical entries from LSJ, Autenrieth, Slater, Middle Liddell, and examples from the corpus. Attikos also features an easy to use Greek parser that provides accent sensitive parses for a word and displays the Logeion entry for the corresponding lemma. Finally, as a resource to Greek students everywhere, handouts have been included that display verb paradigms, noun/adjective declensions, and articles/pronouns.

Customer Reviews

Rough but amazing

The app is utterly fantastic - having the Perseus library with a better UI at your fingertips is worth the price of an iPad. There are things that I wish it did, and some bugs I wish would be fixed, but with all of its imperfections it's hard to exaggerate how useful I find it.

Bug: It crashes hard when changing screen orientations.

Problems: iPhone support would be a huge win. The font isn't bad, but it could be better. More text, of course!

Opportunity: I'd pay lots of money to have the full Liddell & Scott integrated, or one (or more) of the Homeric lexicons. It's probably a pipe dream, but I'd pay more than the cost of the print lexicons without blinking.

Excellent App

I am a beginning Greek reader, and this is the most helpful app for working through texts in conjunction with my class work. I strongly recommend for anyone interested in Greek texts. The value for price is astounding!

a wonderful app

This app is an amazing gift to students and readers of Ancient Greek. It works as advertised: tap a word and Attikos will parse it for you. If you want more details you can get dictionary entries from LSJ etc via another tap and Logeion window.

It comes with a good set of texts that most people will need one time or another.

It is truly stellar work and everyone interested in Greek literature should have it.
