Alexander Jones. (2020). The Epoch Dates of the Antikythera Mechanism (With an Appendix on its Authenticity), 17. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/17/>. DOI: 2333.1/ffbg7m07
Abstract: Attempts previous to 2014 to date the ancient Greek astronomical Antikythera Mechanism, on the basis of the letter forms of its inscriptions or on its Egyptian Calendar scale's alignment, were inconclusive. (Occasional claims that the Mechanism was not a product of antiquity at all are refuted in an appendix to this paper.) In 2014, two separate and complex arguments were published dating the series of computed lunar and solar eclipses inscribed on the Mechanism's Saros Dial to the interval 205-187 BCE, and in 2017 an argument was presented that the Corinthian Calendar lunisolar cycle and the Panhellenic Games cycle inscribed on the Metonic and Games Dials also had an epoch in 205 BCE, four months after the eclipse epoch. The present paper offers a more direct confirmation of the dating of the eclipse sequence, a reaffirmation of the calendrical epoch and explanation of it in the context of Hellenistic calendar regulation and synchronization, and a hypothetical reconstruction of the design decisions that determined the choice of the two 205 BCE epochs. These decisions could plausibly have been made by a designer as late as the c. 60 BCE archeologically determined date of the shipwreck from which the Mechanism was recovered.

Alexander Jones and John M. Steele. (2011). A New Discovery of a Component of Greek Astrology in Babylonian Tablets: The “Terms”. ISAW Papers, 1. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/1/>. DOI: 2333.1/k98sf96r
LOC Subjects: Astronomy, Assyro-BabylonianAstronomy, EgyptianAstronomy, Greek
Abstract:Two cuneiform astrological tablets in the British Museum provide the first evidence for Babylonian knowledge of the so-called "doctrine of the Terms" of Greco-Roman astrology (BM 36326 and BM 36628+36817+37197). Greek, Latin, and Egyptian astrological sources for the various systems of Terms and their origin are reviewed, followed by preliminary editions and translations of the relevant sections of the tablets. The system of Terms is shown to be so far the most technically complex component of Greek astrology to originate in Babylonia. Over the course of the Hellenistic period an Egyptian origin was ascribed to the systems of Terms as it was combined with components of Greek horoscopic astrology. By Ptolemy's day, this spurious history had largely displaced the true.

Gilles Bransbourg. (2012). Rome and the Economic Integration of Empire. ISAW Papers, 3. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/3/>.
Abstract: The modern economist Peter Temin has recently used econometrics to argue that the Roman grain market was an integrated and efficient market. This paper gathers additional data and applies further methods of modern economic analysis to reach a different conclusion. It shows that the overall Roman economy was not fully integrated, although the Mediterranean Sea did create some meaningful integration along a few privileged trade routes. Still, it is not possible to identify pure market forces that existed in isolation, since the political structures that maintained the Empire strongly influenced the movement of money and trade goods.

Tony Freeth and Alexander Jones. (2012). The Cosmos in the Antikythera Mechanism. ISAW Papers, 4.<http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/4/>.
Abstract:The Antikythera Mechanism is a fragmentarily preserved Hellenistic astronomical machine with bronze gearwheels, made about the second century B.C. In 2005, new data were gathered leading to considerably enhanced knowledge of its functions and the inscriptions on its exterior. However, much of the front of the instrument has remained uncertain due to loss of evidence. We report progress in reading a passage of one inscription that appears to describe the front of the Mechanism as a representation of a Greek geocentric cosmology, portraying the stars, Sun, Moon, and all five planets known in antiquity. Complementing this, we propose a new mechanical reconstruction of planetary gearwork in the Mechanism, incorporating an economical design closely analogous to the previously identified lunar anomaly mechanism, and accounting for much unresolved physical evidence.

Adam C. McCollum. (2012). A Syriac Fragment from The Cause of All Causes on the Pillars of Hercules. ISAW Papers, 5. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/5/>.
Abstract: This brief note draws attention to a passage from the Syriac Cause of All Causes that describes the Pillars of Hercules, but as being three in number rather than two. The Syriac text in question has been well-known since it was published in 1889. This particular passage is studied and commented on here especially as it appears in a recently cataloged manuscript from Dayr Al-Za‘farān, in which the passage is completely divorced from its context in the Cause of All Causes.

Abstract: This study examines recent archaeological evidence for the Quartier du Stade on Delos, which was newly formed after 167 CE. Analysis of the changes in the houses and the overall urban development of this neighborhood contribute to revealing the forces that shaped the city of Delos in this period, such as economy, politics, and ideology.

Tom Elliott, Sebastian Heath and John Muccigrosso. (2014). Current Practice in Linked Open Data for the Ancient World. ISAW Papers, 7. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/7/>.
Abstract: Reports on current work relevant to the role of Linked Open Data (LOD) in the study of the ancient world. As a term, LOD encompasses approaches to the publication of digital resources that emphasize stability, relatively fine-grained access to intellectual content via public URIs, and re-usability as defined both by publication of machine reabable data and by publication under licenses that permit further copying of available materials. This article presents a series of reports from participants in 2012 and 2013 sessions of the NEH-funded Linked Ancient World Data Institute. The contributors come from a wide range of academic disciplines and professional backgrounds. The projects they represent reflect this range and also illustrate many stages of the process of moving from concept to implementation.

Federico De Romanis. (2014). Ivory from Muzuris. ISAW Papers, 8. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/8/>.
Abstract: The extant portion of the verso side of the “Muziris papyrus” (PVindob G 40822 v = SB XVIII 13617 v) contains the monetary evaluation of three-quarters of an Indian cargo loaded on the ship Hermapollon. Among the commodities are 167 elephant tusks weighing 3,228.5 kgs and schidai weighing 538.5 kgs. It is argued that schidai are fragments of tusks trimmed away from captive elephants. A comparison with commercial ivory lots of the early sixteenth century shows the selected quality of the tusks loaded on the Hermapollon.

Paola Davoli and Christian Miks. (2015). A New “Roman” Sword from Soknopaiou Nesos (El-Fayyum, Egypt). ISAW Papers, 9. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/9/>.
Abstract: A long and well preserved sword was brought to light in 2006 during the archaeological excavations carried out by the Soknopaiou Nesos Project (University of Salento, Lecce) in the temenos of the main temple in Soknopaiou Nesos, modern Dime. The current state of research would suggest a classification as a Roman, or at least Roman influenced, weapon of the late Republican period. However, some peculiar elements of this sword seem to point to an oriental or Egyptian final assemblage. It thus may give a new impulse to the still open discussion about the appearance of Hellenistic swords starting from the period of Alexander's Successors. The weapon can have been used by soldiers of the late Ptolemaic period as well as by members of the Roman army. The question whether the sword ended up in the temenos as part of local defensive arms or as a votive object will largely remain speculative, as its find context is not stratigraphically reliable.

Sebastian Heath, J.L. Rife, Jorge J. Bravo III, and Gavin Blasdel. (2015). Preliminary Report on Early Byzantine Pottery from a Building Complex at Kenchreai (Greece). ISAW Papers, 10. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/10/>.
Abstract: This paper presents the results of preliminary study of Early Byzantine pottery from a large building near the waterfront at Kenchreai in southern Greece. Kenchreai served as the eastern port of Corinth throughout antiquity. The building was first excavated in 1976 by the Greek Archaeological Service, and it has been investigated since 2014 by the American Excavations at Kenchreai with permission from the Ministry of Culture under the auspices of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. The pottery is characterized by the presence of many Late Roman Amphora 2 rims as well as stoppers and funnels. This indicates that the building had a role in the distribution of regional agricultural products during its final phase, which is dated to the very late sixth or early seventh centures A.D. by African Red-Slip and Phocaean Red-Slip tablewares. A wide range of lamps, glass vessels, and other small finds has also been recorded. Results to date are preliminary but ongoing work may allow further precision as to the chronology and use of this building.

Christián C. Carman and Marcelo Di Cocco. (2016). The Moon Phase Anomaly in the Antikythera Mechanism. ISAW Papers, 11. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/11/>.
Abstract: The Antikythera Mechanism is a mechanical astronomical instrument that was discovered in an ancient shipwreck at the beginning of the twentieth century, made about the second century B.C. It had several pointers showing the positions of the moon and sun in the zodiac, the approximate date according to a lunisolar calendar, several subsidiary dials showing calendrical phenomena, and also predictions of eclipses. The mechanism also had a display of the Moon’s phases: a small ball, half pale and half dark, rotating with the lunar synodic period and so showing the phases of the moon. The remains of the moon phase display include a fragmentary contrate gear. According to the reconstruction offered by Michael Wright, this gear is now pointing unintentionally in the wrong direction. In this paper we offer for the first time a detailed description of the remains of the moon phase mechanism. Based on this evidence, we argue that the extant contrate gear direction is the originally intended one, and we offer a conjectural explanation for its direction as an essential part of a representation of Aristarchus’s hypothesis that half moon phase is observably displaced from exact quadrature.
Dorian Greenbaum and Alexander Jones. (2017). P.Berl. 9825: An elaborate horoscope for 319 CE and its significance for Greek astronomical and astrological practice. ISAW Papers, 12. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/12/>.
Abstract: The discovery of this elaborate horoscope in the Berlin papyrus collection is a milestone in the history of ancient horoscopes. The papyrus takes its place among very few such detailed horoscopes well preserved from antiquity. This paper discusses both the astronomical and astrological details of P.Berl. 9825, enumerating its contents and situating it within the broader historical and cultural context of astrological material from western antiquity. The first section outlines the physical details of the papyrus, its paleography, and the layout of the material among the different sections of the papyrus. It consists of seventeen columns spread among four framed sections. The beginning of the papyrus is lost, but enough remains to allow reconstruction of the date and time of the horoscope, in addition to the positions of the missing luminaries and planet (Saturn). A transcription and translation with apparatus and textual notes follow. A commentary in three parts follows the first section. Part 1 contains restorations, confirmations and corrections. This includes both a tabular summary of the data given in the horoscope, and a diagrammatic representation of the data. Part 2 consists of an astronomical commentary, comparing the astronomical data in the papyrus with Ptolemy’s Almagest and modern theory, to demonstrate that the horoscope was constructed using tables distinct from Ptolemy's, though of comparable quality. The commentary also includes analysis of solar and lunar data, planetary latitudes, and fixed stars “co-rising” with the longitudes of the relevant heavenly body. Part 3 is an astrological commentary. Comparisons with other elaborate horoscopes are made, in addition to analysis of the astrological techniques based on the data provided. Because this is the only extant example of a documentary horoscope containing all seven of the “planetary” lots of Paulus Alexandrinus, there is a more extensive discussion of the lots used here within their historical and cultural context.
Daniel Hoyer. (2018). An Overview of the Numismatic Evidence from Imperial Roman Africa. ISAW Papers, 13. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/13/>. DOI: 2333.1/76hdrfz3
Abstract: This article describes a database of 50,970 coins from the Roman Empire minted in the 'high' imperial period (23 BCE-275 CE). It includes mainly coins found in the regions that were part of imperial Rome's African provinces, with some material from Western Europe for comparative purposes. This database represents data culled from numerous sources and previous publications, representing one of the largest single collections of numismatic material from Roman Africa during this period currently available; though it is by no means exhaustive, and further research is needed to supplement the present project. I present here an overview and some notes on the quantification of this material, highlighting the most prominent and interesting patterns. This quantification suggests certain interpretations concerning key topics in the monetary history of the western Empire, which I point to briefly. Further, the complete dataset is provided for download as both a csv file and a more structured data file (JSON file) to facilitate future research on Roman Africa's numismatic record as well as related information. My intention is, thus, both to advance the study of Africa's numismatic heritage in general as well as to contribute to the available corpus of accessible, digital information concerning the ancient world.
Roger S. Bagnall and Gilles Bransbourg. (2019).The Constantian Monetary Revolution. ISAW Papers, 14. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/14/>. DOI: 2333.1/3n5tb9sc
Abstract: The fourth century CE represents a peculiar moment of monetary history. Most prices rose about fifty thousandfold, materializing the strongest inflationary period ever experienced during Antiquity. Traditionally, this price inflation has been linked to coinage debasement. However, the reality is more complex: imperial authorities also manipulated coinage tariffs in current units of account. This is particularly noticeable under the reign of Constantius II, when most prices increased about twenty-fold in a matter of few years in the early 350s, with no coinage change of comparable magnitude. Very interestingly, gold and silver rose to preeminence at the same moment, at the expense of base metal. We believe both phenomena were linked. A thorough analysis of papyrological and numismatic evidence will demonstrate that the increased supply of silver coinage was allowed by the removal of silver from the existing billon coinage supply, while growth in gold coinage depended on new metallic sources. The sudden price increase, sometimes explained by some form of competition between precious and base metals, would in fact result almost mechanically from the retariffication and subsequent demonetization of the existing billon coinage, replaced during that process by bronze coins of comparable monetary value but of much lesser commodity value. This led ultimately to the bimetallic gold:bronze bullion-based price system that defines the Byzantine period. This paper originated in a conference presentation at "Money Rules!", held in Orléans October 29-31, 2015, and organized by Thomas Faucher. A slightly different version will appear in the proceedings of that conference: R. Bagnall and G. Bransbourg, The Constantian Monetary Revolution. In Th. Faucher (ed.), Money Rules! The monetary economy of Egypt, from Persians until the beginning of Islam (Cairo, IFAO, forthcoming).

Corinna Rossi. (2019). Egyptian cubits and Late Roman architecture: the design of the forts of the Kharga Oasis (Egypt), 16. <http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/16/>. 2333.1/5tb2rmg1
Abstract: The Kharga Oasis, in Egypt’s Western Desert, is endowed with a scatter of Late Roman forts and fortified settlements. The architectural remains of Umm al-Dabadib, the largest and best-preserved site, were surveyed in 3D in 2014 at a high level of accuracy and precision. The ensuing 3D model allowed a detailed metrological study of the fort, which revealed that this building was planned and built using Egyptian cubits. The other Late Roman forts of Kharga have not been surveyed as accurately as Umm al-Dabadib, but nevertheless a careful analysis of their architectural remains reveals that the same conclusions may be extended to these buildings also. This article presents the results of this investigation, which represent the latest attestation of the use of this unit of measurement in architecture, and suggests that these buildings were the outcome of a joint Roman and Egyptian effort to guard the empire’s frontier.

Le luxe de l’imitation
L'art décoratif qui émerge à la fin de la République romaine sous la forme du trompe-l'œil architectural est fascinant par le niveau de technicité mis en œuvre pour représenter un espace tridimensionnel ; il frappe aussi par la richesse des couleurs et des matériaux feints distribués savamment à la surface des murs. La mimèsis y est une composante majeure : représenter l’architecture... certes, mais laquelle ? Inspirés à coup sûr de divers répertoires - décors de théâtre, édifices hellénis...

Catalogue of the Textiles in the Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine Collection
Edited by Gudrun Bühl and Elizabeth Dospěl William

Dumbarton Oaks’ collection of Byzantine and early Islamic textiles have never been systematically published. The objects, which include major monuments like Hestia Polyolbus, range in date from the second to the seventeenth century and emerged from the textile-making traditions of Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Indian subcontinent, and the Byzantine heartlands. We look back on the legacy of the Dumbarton Oaks’ collections and our institution’s mission to publish the complete holdings of the Byzantine Collection. And we look forward to the possibilities of digital cataloguing formats in making scholarly research and publications timely, accessible, and connective.

Il est plus courant aujourd’hui de souligner les limites de l’approche stylistique que de reconnaître son apport à la connaissance d’une production artistique ou artisanale.

Representations of Cyprus
Sylvia Ioannou Foundation
Historical documentation (books, documents, maps, drawings) contains, among other things, important geographical information concerning both the natural and manmade environments of the places to which it refers. This information is often embedded in various kinds of representations, such as engravings, perspective charts, horizontal plans, sketches and old photographs. Such representations are frequently found in documents concerning Cyprus, as the island constituted an important hub of activity in the Eastern Mediterranean. 

The one-year research project entitled "Representations of the Coastal Zone of Cyprus through Historical Map Segments and Other Illustrations" was prepared by the Department of Geography of Harokopio University, Athens, under the scientific supervision of Professor Christos Chalkias and supported by the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation. The main objective of the project was to design and implement an open access web application that identifies, organises and classifies the content of historical representations of the island of Cyprus. 

 The open access web application offers all interested parties, researchers and enthusiasts the opportunity to journey to the historical past of Cyprus through documented pictorial material and to investigate and contrast it with the current reality. In addition, any user of the application may, if they wish, contribute towards further enriching the documentation by providing new material or by participating in the interpretation of the existing content.

neues Fachwörterbuch (Mehrsprachige Online-Wörterbuch zum Fachwortschatz der Verwaltungssprache des griechisch-römisch-byzantinischen Ägypten)











Das "Mehrsprachige Online-Wörterbuch zum Fachwortschatz der Verwaltungssprache des griechisch-römisch-byzantinischen Ägypten" (kurz neues Fachwörterbuch (nFWB) ) ersetzt, aktualisiert und erweitert das 100 Jahre alte Lexikon von Friedrich Preisigke, "Fachwörter des öffentlichen Verwaltungsdienstes Ägyptens: in den griechischen Papyrusurkunden der ptolemäisch-römischen Zeit" (Göttingen 1915). Es präsentiert die Lemmata mit Schreibvarianten und Übersetzungen in Deutsch, Französisch, Englisch, Italienisch, Spanisch und Arabisch. Eine umfangreiche Recherchefunktion gestattet es zudem, sich Lemmata nach Sachgruppen geordnet anzeigen zu lassen, eine Volltextsuche durchzuführen und die Suchergebnisse nach verschiedenen Kriterien zu sortieren. Das neue Fachwörterbuch verlinkt u.a. den frühesten und spätesten Beleg direkt zum Volltext bei papyri.info und verweist auf die einschlägige Forschungsliteratur. 

Hinweise zum Aufbau und zur Benutzung des neuen Fachwörterbuchs finden Sie hier . Beachten Sie bitte, dass die mit einem * gekennzeichneten Einträge lediglich eine wortgetreue Wiedergabe des korrespondierenden Eintrags in F. Preisigkes "Fachwörterbuch" beinhalten, aber noch nicht neu bearbeitet worden sind. Auch bezüglich Darstellung und Funktionalität befindet sich die Seite noch im Aufbau. Über Anregungen und Kritik würden wir uns freuen. Bitte schreiben Sie uns an fwb@lists.uni-leipzig.de

Finanziert wird das Projekt im Rahmen der Forschungsförderung „Geisteswissenschaftliche Forschung“ für 2015 des Sächsischen Staatsministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst über die Sächsische Aufbaubank über einen Zeitraum von 2 Jahren und 11 Monaten (2015 – 2018).
The "multilingual online dictionary of the technical administrative language of Graeco-Roman-Byzantine Egypt" (in short: new Fachwörterbuch (nFWB) ) replaces, updates and extends its known predecessor, Friedrich Preisigke's "Fachwörter des öffentlichen Verwaltungsdienstes Ägyptens: in den griechischen Papyrusurkunden der ptolemäisch-römischen Zeit" which was published more than 100 years ago, in 1915. It displays the lemmata with spelling variants and translations into the languages German, French, English, Italian, Spanish and Arabic. By using an extensive research function it is also possible to sort the lemmata by their subject groups, to perform a full text search and to arrange the search results by different criteria. The new Fachwörterbuch indicates the earliest and the latest record of a word's meaning and links to their full-texts at papyri.info ; it also gives bibliographical references and offers further information concerning the word and its meaning(s).
Here you find information on the structure and use of the new Fachwörterbuch. Please note that the entries marked with a * are only the literal reproduction of the corresponding entry in Preisigkes "Fachwörterbuch". They have not been edited anew, yet. Likewise as for its appearance and functionality this page is still being developed. We would be glad to receive your critical and inspiring opinions and suggestions. Please write to fwb@lists.uni-leipzig.de .
The project is funded by the Sächsisches Staatsministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst in corporation with the Sächsische Aufbaubank within a programme to support research entitled "Geisteswissenschaftliche Forschung" over a period of 2 years and 11 months (2015 – 2018).

Les livres dans le monde gréco-romain
La célébration du 175e anniversaire de l’Université de Liège fut l’occasion, pour Odette Bouquiaux-Simon, alors directrice du CEDOPAL, d’organiser à la Salle Marie Delcourt de la Bibliothèque générale, du 1er au 31 mars 1993, une exposition sur « Le monde des livres dans l’Antiquité classique », reprise en grande partie ici. Avec quelques modifications, et une traduction néerlandaise, celle-ci fut également présentée à la Bibliothèque Royale Albert 1er de Bruxelles en février-mars 1995 et à la Bibliothèque universitaire de Louvain en septembre-octobre 1996. D’autres expositions encore demandèrent le concours du CEDOPAL, auquel elles empruntèrent souvent une partie des panneaux de présentation composés par Patrick David : « Du papyrus à l’ordinateur » (Pepinster, septembre 1992), « Le papier et le livre (Visé, novembre 1996), « Du papyrus au livre et à Internet » (Liège, Palais des Princes-Evêques, septembre 1997), « Médecine et société en Grèce antique » (Musée Royal de Mariemont, septembre-décembre 1998) pour les papyrus grecs de médecine et « Les Empereurs du Nil » (Tongres, Musée Gallo-romain, septembre 1999-février 2000; Valenciennes, Musée des Beaux-Arts, mars-juin 2000; Amsterdam, Musée Allard Pierson, décembre 2000-mars 2001) pour la section « littérature ».

 Le logo du CEDOPAL

Conçu par Denis Renard, le logo du CEDOPAL évoque l’hiéroglyphe égyptien du buisson de papyrus avec, en surimpression, une lettre grecque alpha provenant d’un papyrus d’Homère (P. Tebt. 2. 426 = MP³ 628 du IIe siècle de notre ère) retrouvé à Tebtynis.

Communities and knowledge production in archaeology

Communities and knowledge production in archaeology
Editors: Julia Roberts, Kathleen Sheppard, Ulf R. Hansson and Jonathan R. Trigg
Cover Communities and knowledge production in archaeology
The dynamic processes of knowledge production in archaeology and elsewhere in the humanities and social sciences are increasingly viewed within the context of negotiation, cooperation and exchange, as the collaborative effort of groups, clusters and communities of scholars. Shifting focus from the individual scholar to the wider social contexts of her work, this volume investigates the importance of informal networks and conversation in the creation of knowledge about the past, and takes a closer look at the dynamic interaction and exchange that takes place between individuals, groups and clusters of scholars in the wider social settings of scientific work. Various aspects of and mechanisms at work behind the interaction and exchange that takes place between the individual scholar and her community, and the creative processes that such encounters trigger, are critically examined in eleven chapters which draw on a wide spectrum of examples from Europe and North America: from early modern antiquarians to archaeological societies and practitioners at work during the formative years of the modern archaeological disciplines and more recent examples from the twentieth century. The individual chapters engage with theoretical approaches to scientific creativity, knowledge production and interaction such as sociology and geographies of science, and actor-network theory (ANT) in their examination of individual–collective interplay. The book caters to readers both from within and outside the archaeological disciplines; primarily intended for researchers, teachers and students in archaeology, anthropology, classics and the history of science, it will also be of interest to the general reader.

LiLa-Linking Latin: Lemma Bank available
We are glad to announce that the LEMMA BANK QUERY INTERFACE of the "LiLa: Linking Latin" ERC project is now online at: https://lila-erc.eu/query/

Users can query the LiLa collection of Latin lemmas, used to interconnect linguistic resources and tools with Linked Data technology, through a simple graphical interface. The Lemma Bank comprises 134,228 Lemma objects and 58,278 Hypolemma objects, as well as 4,224 lexical bases, 109 suffixes and 41 prefixes. Query results can be saved as a CSV file, visualized in the LOD View or LOD Live interfaces, and the underlying SPARQL code can be copied with a simple click.

Users familiar with the SPARQL query language can also access the LiLa triplestore, which currently provides three end-points: Lemma Bank, Corpora ("Summa contra Gentiles" of the "Index Thomisticus Treebank") and lexicalResources (the "Brill Etymological Dictionary of Latin and the other Italic Languages"). Please note that both Corpora and lexical resources are work in progress.

For details, please check the list of publications about LiLa available at https://lila-erc.eu/output/

For future updates, please follow LiLa's official website and social media accounts!
