Abstract
This article takes another look at the chronology of Grassmann's Law (GL). It investigates the different dating suggestions - Indo-European, pre-Mycenaean, post-Mycenaean, post-Homeric - and assesses them critically. The article first holds that the evidence from Germanic, Latin and Iranian indicates that GL did not operate in PIE and secondly agrees with Ruijgh, Lejeune, Janko, Hajnal, Plath and Vine that GL only operated after the Mycenaean era. To prove this, the article uses the evidence from Mycenaean, Homeric scansion, and augmentation and reduplication in the Greek verbal morphology. The article finally finds that there are some indications to put GL after the period in which the Homeric poems were written down (somewhere between the end of the 9th - beginning 8th century BC in our opinion).*
