DCLP offers information about and transcriptions of Greek and Latin literary and subliterary papyri preserved on papyri, ceramic sherds (ostraka), wooden tablets, and other portable media. It is built on the model of papyri.info, relying on its own versions of the Papyrological Navigator (PN) for searching and browsing and Papyrological Editor (PE) for peer-reviewed curation of texts. The site aims to do for ancient literature preserved on papyri what papyri.info does for Greek and Latin documents. An ultimate goal is also to provide search and browse functionality across the entire corpus of Greek and Latin papyri--documentary, literary, and subliterary alike.
DCLP aggregates material from the Leuven Database of Ancient Documents (LDAB), Bibliographie Papyrologique (BP), Thesaurus Herculanensium Voluminum, and the Parma Medical Project, and depends on close collaboration with the Department of Classics at the University of Würzburg and the Duke Collaborative for Classics Computing (DC3). ...read more.
