Digital Marmor Parium
The Digital Marmor Parium is a project directed by Monica Berti at the University of Leipzig for producing digital data about the Parian Marble. This document is a Hellenistic chronicle on a marble slab coming from the Greek island of Paros. The inscription preserves a Greek chronology (1581/80 - 299/98 BC) with a list of kings and archons accompanied by short references to historical events mainly based on the Athenian history.

This work is part of the Digital Fragmenta Historicorum Gracorum (DFHG), which is a digital collection of ancient Greek fragmentary historians that includes also an edition of the text of the Parian chronicle with a Latin translation, a chronological table, and critical notes.

The aim of the project is to provide images and drawings of the inscription, and digital data about named entities (geographical and personal names), chronological expressions, and linguistic information preserved by the text of the Parian Marble.

EpiDoc XML encodings of the inscription are available through the GitHub repository of the project.
