Supplementum Grammaticum Graecum is a reference work for scholars of Greek antiquity, complementary to Jacoby Online and specifically Die Fragmente der griechischen Historiker IV. It is a collection of critical editions of testimonies and fragments of Greek grammarians, namely, ancient scholars dealing with textual criticism, literary exegesis, grammar, biography, and the various fields of erudition.
Each entry consists of a biographical and cultural profile of a grammarian and a new (often first) critical edition of all the existing testimonies and sources in their original language. These are supported by translations and analytical commentaries and followed by a thorough bibliography and indices.
9 volumes are expected to be published in print. Starting 2023, Supplementum Grammaticum Graecum will continue as an online reference work only. New supplements will be added to the online edition but will not appear in print format.
