The Greek-English lexicon of Liddell-Scott-Jones professes to include all secular writers to the end of the sixth century AD, but its coverage of the Greek writings of the sixth century dealing with Roman law is rather incomplete. Although some work has been done on the incorporation into Greek legal texts of straight Latin words and phrases, extremely little has been published on the numerous calques or loan translations found in the vocabulary and phraseology of later legal Greek. This volume comprises Greek words and expressions found in the Code Justinian that are absent or inadequately treated in Liddell-Scott-Jones. It also indicates which of these words and expressions display the influence of Latin.
