Aphrodisias in Late Antiquity

March 23rd, 2005 by Ross Scaife

Great news!

This is to announce the publication of Aphrodisias in Late Antiquity, revised second edition.

You will find details of how to cite the material on the Home page. You will also find a very full Help page, if you have problems – for example with the Greek.

The site is free, and stable: we have even given it an ISBN, so please encourage your library to catalogue it.

We look forward to your comments.

Two especially helpful and encouraging aspects of this extremely impressive site are the substantial Technical Preface explaining how things were done, and the fact that users can download the entire set of inscriptions marked up in TEI-Epidoc-conformant XML files. But the very best news of all, I think, is the strategy for intellectual property: “The academic content of this site is registered under the Creative Commons copyright licence: Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0.” What does that mean?

This is thrilling stuff.
