"Each book of the text has a link to introductory commentary on that book, and each section of the text has a link to detailed comments on the section. Links within the commentary connect not only to the section of text directly being annotated, but also to other parts of the text and commentary. Footnotes in the commentary appear at the end of each book; the footnote numbers are links from the commentary text to the footnote and from the footnote text back to the commentary. Where possible, links have been provided to the texts of classical works and Biblical passages cited in the commentary." [from resource]

main page top of page
Christophe Cusset, Pascale Linant De Bellefonds et Évelyne Prioux. Paris: Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), 2012. "Fruit d’une collaboration étroite entre spécialistes des textes antiques et spécialistes de l’iconographie gréco-romaine, la base CALLYTHEA met à disposition du public des textes poétiques de l’époque hellénistique, d’accès parfois difficile, qui évoquent ou relatent un épisode mythologique. Elle présente aussi les rapprochements pertinents entre ces textes et la documentation figurée.
Interrogeable grâce à divers descripteurs (auteurs, œuvres, personnages et thèmes mythologiques, toponymes, ethniques, mots-clés), CALLYTHEA propose, outre le texte antique original sous forme de fragment ou d’extrait, une traduction en français souvent inédite, un commentaire sur le texte et, lorsque cela est justifié, un commentaire iconographique accompagné de liens avec la documentation figurée accessible grâce à la base LIMC-France."

Visualizing Statues in the Late Antique Roman Forum - Inscription Database
Diane Favro (principal investigator), Los Angeles: UCLA, ca. 2011. "This website addresses the material evidence concerning the statues displayed during the fourth and fifth centuries CE in the open areas of the Roman Forum as documented by inscriptions. The navigable reconstruction of the Forum represents statues within their urban context so as to indicate the space in which civic rituals occurred. The visualization relies upon archeological evidence that precisely attests to the original display spots of many statues; carefully considered hypotheses point toward plausible locations of the other artworks."

Homer Multitext
Ed. by Casey Dué and Mary Ebbott. Houston: University of Houston, 2014. "The Homer Multitext project seeks to present the Homeric Iliad and Odyssey in a critical framework that accounts for the fact that these poems were composed orally over the course of hundreds, if not thousands of years by countless singers who composed in performance. The evolution and the resulting multiformity of the textual tradition, reflected in the many surviving texts of Homer, must be understood in its many different historical contexts. Using technology that takes advantage of the best available practices and open source standards that have been developed for digital publications in a variety of fields, the Homer Multitext offers free access to a library of texts and images and tools to allow readers to discover and engage with the Homeric tradition."

IRT - Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania
IOSPE - Ancient Inscriptions of the Northern Black Sea
Directed by Askold Ivantchik and Irene Polinskaya, London: King's College London, 2011. "The aims of the project include a new study of all Ancient Greek and Latin inscriptions originating from the Northern Coast of the Black Sea; and publication of Russian and English critical editions of the inscriptions in print and digital formats. [...] The new conception of the IOSPE corpus consists in capturing in its entirety the ancient epigraphic production of the northern Pontic region – that is, not only inscriptions made on stone (lapidary inscriptions), but also on other media and fabrics, such as ceramics, metal, and bone. [...] The first stage of the project involves publication of Lapidary Inscriptions. There will be about 5,000 lapidary texts published in IOSPE, about three times as many as in the original corpus."
IRT - The Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania
Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, by J. M. Reynolds and J. B. Ward-Perkins, enhanced electronic reissue by Gabriel Bodard and Charlotte Roueché (2009). ISBN 978-1-897747-23-0. "The first publication of Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, which appeared in 1952, has long been out of print. Produced in post-war conditions, it only included illustrations of a few inscriptions, although very many of them had been photographed; and it only offered limited geographic information.
The purposes of this enhanced reissue are, therefore, to make the original material available again, and to provide the full photographic record, together with geographical data linking the inscriptions to maps and gazetteers, and so to other resources. Electronic publication makes this possible, and also allows us to offer greater functionality, such as free text searches. We have included the material from the supplement which contained further texts, numbered in the same sequence (973-996): 'Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania: a supplement', published in PBSR 23 (1955), 124-147, and we have incorporated corrections and emendations made in that article; but we have not attempted to alter or emend any item otherwise.
The indices of this edition are generated from the texts themselves. This means that in some cases they will diverge from those in the original edition, usually being fuller: but the material in three texts not included in that edition (261, 262 and 855) and the Neo-Punic personal names do not appear in these indices."
