Papyri.info is dedicated to the study of ancient papyrological documents. It offers links to papyrological resources, a customized search engine (called the Papyrological Navigator) capable of retrieving information from multiple related collections, and an editing application, the Papyrological Editor, which contributors can use to suggest emendations to PN texts.
The Papyrological Navigator aggregates and displays information from the Advanced Papyrological Information System (APIS), the Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri (DDbDP) and the Heidelberger Gesamtverzeichnis der griechischen Papyrusurkunden Ägyptens (HGV), as well as links to Trismegistos.
Version 2.0 was announced today on the new Digital Papyrology blog:
PN 2.0 is a complete rewrite of the PN system, with tight integration of the data, display, and search capabilities.
New features include:
All of the Duke Databank and HGV texts are released under a Creative Commons Attribution license and the APIS data is released under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial license.
