Welcome to the ninth International Colloquium on Ancient Greek Linguistics (ICAGL 9). The Helsinki 2018 colloquium has two themes. Firstly, the language contact between Greek and other languages and secondly, linguistic research on original documents and manuscripts. We have two keynote speakers confirmed: Eleanor Dickey from the University of Reading, UK, and Trevor Evans from Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia.
