Edited by: Ian Worthington

Brill’s New Jacoby, Second Edition is a revised edition of Brill’s New Jacoby. The commentaries on the ancient authors in BNJ have been extensively revised, bibliographies have been updated, and, especially important, an apparatus criticus and discussion of the provenance of each fragment have been added, which sets BNJ 2 significantly apart from the previous editions.

Like Brill’s New Jacoby, this revised edition has texts and historians not included in Jacoby’s Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker I-III. It provides English translations to all fragments, critical commentaries, and a brief encyclopedia-style entry about the historian’s life and works, with a select bibliography.

Brill's New Jacoby, Second Edition is a work-in-progress with publication of the last historian scheduled for 2026. A list of the available historians in alphabetical order can be viewed in the contents tab below.
