Sir Peter Hugh Jefferd Lloyd-Jones FBA (21 September 1922 – 5 October 2009) was a British classical scholar and Regius Professor of Greek at Oxford University.

Lloyd-Jones was educated at Westminster School where he developed an interest in Modern History before being converted to Classics by his Headmaster, J.T. Christie. He pursued undergraduate and postgraduate studies at Christ Church, Oxford. His studies were interrupted by World War II, during which he learned Japanese and served in the Intelligence Corps in India, turning down the opportunity to work at Bletchley Park in order to serve in Burma. He ended the War as a Captain.

He took Greats in 1948 and gained several university prizes and for a while was a Fellow of Jesus College, Cambridge. While in Cambridge Lloyd-Jones met his first wife, Frances Hedley, a Classics student at Newnham College, and whom he married in 1953. The couple had two sons and a daughter and were divorced in 1981. In 1951 Lloyd-Jones returned to Oxford where he became the first holder of the E.P. Warren Praelectorship at Corpus Christi, Oxford.

He supervised many distinguished PhD students, including Martin Litchfield West. In his inaugural address as Regius Professor in 1961 he called for a reduction in the emphasis laid on composition taught to undergraduates and suggested that Honour Moderations might have to be reformed to encompass studies taken from ancient philosophy and history as well as the traditional literature and language.

He contributed editions of Menander’s Dyscolus (1960) and Sophocles (1990, together with Nigel Wilson) to the Oxford Classical Texts, and editions and translations of the Aeschylean fragments (1960) and Sophocles (2000) to the Loeb Classical Library.

Lloyd-Jones was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1966 and was a member of five foreign academies, holding honorary doctorates from the universities of Chicago, Tel Aviv, Göttingen and Thessaloniki. His retirement from the Regius Chair in 1989, after 29 years service, was recognised with a knighthood..

He married Mary R. Lefkowitz, Professor Emerita of Classical Studies at Wellesley College in Massachusetts, in 1982. He spent his last years at their home in Wellesley, Massachusetts.
