Suda On Line: Byzantine Lexicography

Suda On Line: Byzantine Lexicography. Suda is a 10th century massive byzantine encyclopedia , one of the first of the kind. The aim of the Suda on Line project is the translation and annotation of this work as well as the enrichment of the suda content with traditional as well as electronic resources relevant to this work.

From the site:

The Suda is a massive 10th century Byzantine Greek historical encyclopedia of the ancient Mediterranean world, derived from the scholia to critical editions of canonical works and from compilations by yet earlier authors. The purpose of the Suda On Line is to open up this stronghold of information by means of a freely accessible, keyword-searchable, XML-encoded database with translations, annotations, bibliography, and automatically generated links to a number of other important electronic resources. We believe that greater accessibility of this material should facilitate a good variety of new research.
