  1. ToposText is an indexed collection of ancient texts and mapped places relevant the the history and mythology of the ancient Greeks from the Neolithic period up through the 2nd century CE. It was inspired by two decades of exploring Greece by car, foot, or bicycle, and by clumsy efforts to appreciate επί τόπου the relevant information from Pausanias or other primary sources. The development of mobile electronic devices since 2010 has coincided with an increasingly comprehensive assortment of ancient texts available on the internet. Browse for places and select authors and events! Combined with data from Pleiades Project and Travelogues. Url to the Topostext site: http://topostext.org/places.php Have fun, Auris
  2. Let's start with a definition. The extant documents, including fragments, pericopes of Greco-Roman literature starting from Homer up to the start of Christianity's hegemony in the Western Roman Empire from the 4th century. Let's finish with Ammianus Marcellinus or a pagan contemporary. Do we have any idea of what percentage remains? What subjects do they cover? How much of what remains is published by the Loeb Classical Library or other publishers? I know that the work has been done on Roman references, mainly in passing, to the Jews. But I'd be interested in the big picture. Someone must have done it. x Photo of 'P52' St John's Gospel fragment by John Rylands Library in Manchester,
