Fiona C. Patrick (Project Coordinator, Digital Consulting & Production Services) sends word of the following:

Cornell University Library is pleased to announce the availability of “Mysteries at Eleusis: Images of Inscriptions,” a digital collection of approximately 800 images from the sanctuary of the Eleusinian Mysteries, at Eleusis, a town belonging to Athens. “The Mysteries,” as they were officially called, are usually recognized today, as they were in ancient times, as one of the most important religious cults in ancient Greece. The images currently available are derived from photographs by Professor Kevin Clinton (Department of Classics). The new digital collection is one of the largest contributions to a worldwide effort to make available on the Internet both texts and images of all ancient Greek and Latin documents on stone http://www.csad.ox.ac.uk/CSAD/Links.html.
