Perseus Digital Library
An online collection of textual and visual materials illustrating the Archaic and Classical Greek world.
Language and Literature
Perseus Project is a large searchable collection of textual and visual materials illustrating the Archaic and Classical Greek world, beginning with texts by major authors of works in Latin. The site includes the full texts of many significant works in Greek and in their English translations. The texts provide links from individual words to morphological tools including the Liddle-Scott-Jones Lexicon. There are a few secondary sources included in full text such as Greek Vase Painter Essays written specifically for inclusion in Perseus, and a hypertext version of Herbert Weir Smith's Greek Grammar. The visual materials include art objects, sites, and buildings. Each record for an object includes a description, its context, and a picture when permitted by the copyright holder. The Perseus Atlas allows viewers to zoom in on archaeological sites and link to site plans.
