pg 451INDEX OF PERSONAL NAMES

In this translation Greek names are generally Latinized (e.g. Achilles) and the Latin forms are sometimes Anglicized (e.g. Priam rather than Priamus); since practice in the treatment of Greek names in English is not fixed, a degree of flexibility allows familiar forms to be used in preference to a strictly consistent, but more artificial system.

The index aims to provide full guidance to readers, but does not list every mention of each character. References below are to the book and line number in the translation.
