At any price, this is an excellent resource.
"Dictionary of Classical Mythology" by J. E. Zimmerman gives a foundational background of the early ancient Gods & Goddesses; breaking it down into modern terms, and suggesting potential contemporary influences. There are just under 2,100 entries that are given pronunciation and definition. Although abridged, one handy feature kept consistent throughout is when one is mentioned that belongs in a group, the others are mentioned (such as the nine muses); as well as other cross-reference within this book. Usage key, suggestions for further reading, mythological entries, historical entries, biographical entries, variant names and spelling, and other features make this book the one to have; not just the affordability or portability.
