Full description
Digital library of most literary texts written in Greek from Homer (8th century B.C.) to the fall of Byzantium in AD 1453. This database currently provides access to more than 3,800 authors and 12,000 full-text works. It is updated quarterly with new authors and works. Also included is the Canon of Greek Authors and Works, the bibliographic guide to the authors and texts entered in the TLG. The Canon is an invaluable resource, the first truly comprehensive list of all known extant texts in Greek. It provides information about the names, dates, geographical origins and descriptive epithets for each author together with detailed bibliographical information about existing text editions for each work. **Note** A polytonic Greek font must be installed on your computer in order to view some work titles that appear in Greek.
