Prosopographia Ptolemaica

The Prosopographia Ptolemaica

The Prosopographia Ptolemaica is one of the long-standing research projects of the department of Ancient History at the University of Leuven.

The Prosopographia Ptolemaica started as a list of all inhabitants of Egypt between 300 and 30 B.C., from Greek, Egyptian and Latin sources, both authors and documents. It is now being extended to the Roman and Byzantine periods.

The automatisation of the Prosopographia Ptolemaica has been greatly advanced through a grant of the Kiessling Stiftung in 2008.

The Prosopographia Ptolemaic has been integrated in the papyrological framework of Trismegistos. It is also set up in close collaboration with the Heidelberger Gesamtverzeichnis and the Duke Database of Documentary Papyri.
