This work is the third in a four-volume lexicon of eponym dies stamped on Rhodian amphorae. It contains 1443 matrices designating 60 eponyms whose names begin with the Greek letters Lambda through Sigma. This volume represents a continuation of the matrix studies that began in 2003 in the rich Alexandrian collections of the Graeco-Roman Museum, particularly the Benaki Collection, and in finds from Alexandria excavations. The volume contains also stamps from excavations of Crocodilopolis/Arsinoe and other sites in Egypt as well as Delos island and some previously published stamps from excavations sites in other Eastern Mediterranean consumption centres. In the matrix names, numbers do not refer to any chronological dating order. Under the title of each eponym, following some brief information (the eponymous year of the eponym, total number of matrices naming him, used/not-used month names and the names of the producers associated with him) the stamps naming him are presented, beginning with the dies accompanied by month-names (if applicable) in alphabetical order, followed by the dies without month names. In the forthcoming fourth volume, appendices will contain Addenda et corrigenda as well as lists with eponym-producer and producer-eponym associations in alphabetical and chronological order. Additional lists will refer to matrices of eponyms accompanied by fabricant matrices seen on the same amphorae and the matrices of secondary stamps accompanying the eponym dies.
