A specialized bibliographic database of scholarly works relating to all aspects of ancient Greek and Roman civilizations.

The PHI Digital Text Archives provides free access to surviving Latin literature from the beginning to about AD 200. PHI has collected and transcribed many early English translations of Persian literature. Because of copyright restrictions, they have included only translations made before 1923. In addition to literary texts (such as Homer and Plato) that have survived in manuscript copies, the ancient Greeks carved many inscriptions on stone (and occasionally other surfaces). Inscriptions range from public laws and decrees to gravestones and even marks on pottery. These inscriptions provide unique evidence for ancient Greece, since they are true original documents, unlike literary manuscripts which have been copied many times over the centuries and therefore often contain errors. The scholarly discipline of epigraphy deals with reading these texts and identifying the dates and cultural contexts. Many inscriptions are in a damaged or fragmentary state, and epigraphy is a subject for highly trained specialists.
The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG) is a research center at the University of California, Irvine.
