The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names and classical web services

Elaine Matthews and Sebastian Rahtz (Oxford)

Digital Classicist/ICS Work in Progress Seminar, Summer 2008

Friday 6th June at 16:30, in room NG16, Senate House, Malet Street, London

The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names was established 35 years ago to collect and publish all ancient Greek personal names. Thorough maintenance of the IT infrastructure has enabled us to start making new uses of the data and enable inter-project exchange. We will describe the Lexicon data model, its relationship to semantic markup using TEI XML, web services which we can offer, and some of the novel investigations which can now be attempted.


The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
