Digital Athenaeus
The Digital Athenaeus is a project directed by Monica Berti at the Alexander von Humboldt Chair of Digital Humanities at the University of Leipzig for producing a digital edition of the Deipnosophists of Athenaeus of Naucratis.
The work is focused on annotating quotations and text reuses in the Deipnosophists in order to accomplish two main results:
  1. Provide an inventory of authors and works cited by Athenaeus.
  2. Implement a data model for identifying, analyzing, and citing uniquely instances of text reuse in the Deipnosophists.
The project provides users with tools for consulting the text of the Deipnosophists and getting information about authors and works reused by Athenaeus.
The Digital Athenaeus is also implementing a system for involving scholars and students in improving and disambiguating data pertaining to the work of the Naucratites.
