Complete Lexicon of the LXX (Septuagint)

This was done by Peeters Publishers.

As seen by the website:
This complete lexicon supercedes its two earlier editions (1993; 2002).

* The entire Septuagint, including the apocrypha, is covered.
* For the books of Samuel, Kings, Chronicles, and Judges the so-called Antiochene edition is fully covered in addition to the data as found in the standard edition by Rahlfs.
* Also fully covered are the two versions of Tobit, Esther, and Daniel.
* Based on the critically established Göttingen edition where it is available. If not, Rahlfs's edition is used.
* For close to 60% of a total of 9,550 headwords all the passages occurring in the LXX are either quoted or mentioned.
* A fully fledged lexicon, not a glossary merely listing translation equivalents in English.
* Senses defined.
* Important lexicographical data such as synonyms, antonyms, idiomatic expressions, distinction between literal and figurative, combinations with prepositions, noun cases, syntagmatic information such as what kind of direct or indirect objects a given verb takes, what kind of nouns a given adjective is used with, and much more information abundantly presented and illustrated with quotes, mostly translated."

To read the rest please visit their website.

It cost about 95 euros. I don't know what that is in dollors (maybe $150) but I really don't know.

Ah good. has the Septuagint, but no extensive concordance like they do the Greek New Testament. So, I'm happy someone's done something like this.

And Euros? Great, so it's not available in the states? D:
