Who's Who : epitomo biographiko lexiko / [Dieuthyntes : Demosthenes Kukunas]. - Athenai : Ekdoseis Metron. - 24 cm. - (D. Kukunas, Ithakes 24, 11257 Athenai, Greece)

1992. - 603 p. - ISBN 960-7201-01-9 : Dr. 6000

This is the latest in the series of contemporary Greek biographical dictionaries, which include the following titles:

Who's Who : poios einai poios ; biographiko lexiko prosopikoteton. - Athenai : "Ekloge". - 1958. - 408 p.
Who's Who in Greece. - Athenai : Athens News. - 1958/59 (1959). - 368 p. (An English translation of the prior title.)
Hellenikon Who's Who : biographikon lexikon prosopikoteton. Athenai: Hellenikon Who's Who. - [1]. - 1962. - 571 p. - 2. - 1965. - 696 p.
Hellenikon Who's Who. Kypros. - Athenai : Hellenikon Who's Who. - 1965. - 48 p. (A supplement to prior title; covers Greeks in Cyprus.)
Biographiko lexiko prosopikoteton : Who's Who - Athenai : Biographiko Lexiko Prosopikoteton. - 1979. - 768 p.

These meet the standards expected of biographical directories, although there are inconsistencies and some surprising omissions. The bibliographical listings are not usable. It is to be hoped that future editions will see an improvement in this regard, and that they will appear more frequently. [wu/sl]
