Review

Diogenes is an open-source program that comes in handy for users who intend to look for ancient Latin or Greek words or phrases explanations. This piece of software will deliver you detailed information for any type of entered query in just a matter of seconds.

Once you launch the application, you will notice its simple and intuitive interface, manageable by any user. You will be able to easily find the meaning of any word/phrase written in ancient dialect related to Greek and Latin.
All you have to do in order to use this efficient tool is to select the type of action you wish to perform (look up a word in the dictionary, morphological search, browse to a specific passage, etc.), choose the proper database to look for the entered text and enter the query.
Unfortunately, the application won't come with many integrated databases; if you are looking for a more accurate search, download more databases from publishers like Thesaurus Linguae Graecae and the Packard Humanities Institute.

The program will offer you fast and accurate results depending on the selections you made previously; in case the searched word/phrase is not located within the selected database, the application will deliver you the nearest entry.

An advantage of using this piece of software is the fact that you can save the results as a HTML file and use it later on.

Therefore, Diogenes is a handy application that provides you with a fast and easy way to find ancient Latin or Greek words/phrases explanations.
