LiBER (Linear B Electronic Resources)

[Free to use after registration]
LiBER (Linear B Electronic Resources) is a CNR-ISMA project which aims at producing an integrated database of Linear B documents, with the ultimate goal of providing scholars, and all those who are interested in the Mycenaean world, with an updated edition of the Linear B documents, along with a new set of search tools. Individual texts are supplied with transcriptions, critical apparatus, photographs as well as, whenever possible, with all the relevant information about findspots, scribes, chronologies, inventory numbers and places of preservation. The database can be searched by series of documents, syllabic sequences, logograms, scribes and findspots, while search results can be displayed both as lists of texts and interactive maps. 

At the present stage, the database contains the Linear B documents from Mycenae, Tiryns and Midea. The Knossos documents are currently being processed.
