Lexicon of Greek Personal Names and classical web services (seminar London)

This is to announce the first seminar in this summer's Digital
Classicist/ICS Work in Progress series

Elaine Matthews and Sebastian Rahtz (Oxford)
'The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names and classical web services'

Time: Friday 6th June at 16:30
Place: room NG16, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

Brief abstract:
The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names was established 35 years ago to collect and publish all ancient Greek personal names. Thorough maintenance of the IT infrastructure has enabled us to start making new uses of the data and enable inter-project exchange. We will describe the Lexicon data model, its relationship to semantic markup using TEI XML, web services which we can offer, and some of the novel investigations which can now be attempted.

*All are welcome.*

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments after which everyone is also welcome to join us in entreating the speakers at a local venue.

best regards
