Middle Euphrates Digital Archive
The Middle Euphrates Digital Archive is an ongoing project of the Dipartimento di Studi Asiatici, the Università degli Studi di Napoli "L'Orientale". It was conceived and carried out by Dr. Francesco Di Filippo, under the supervision of Prof. Carlo Zaccagnini, and with the financial support of the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MIUR). The project also benefited from the pioneered work of Dr. Stefano Bassetti (a former student of Prof. Carlo Zaccagnini at the University of Bologna), who in the late 80's carried out a comprehensive encoding of the Emar corpus.

At present the online database includes all Emar texts published to date ‒ originating from the regular excavation or from the antiquities market ‒, thus representing the first thesaurus of this wealthy Late Bronze Age Syrian archive.
