This bibliography is growing as new articles and information are added.

We have attempted to avoid using abbreviations for the titles of academic journals and reference works in articles and notes in this section. Many books, articles and dissertations include a key to such abbreviations as used in the respective publications. Lists of those in general use are available on various academic websites, for example   Thanks to all the authors, academics and non-academics, who have generously made their articles and publications freely available online at this website. Many worlds of discovery.

Arachne, the central object database of the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut (DAI, German Archaeological Institute) and the Archäologisches Institut der Universität zu Köln (Archaeological Institute of the University of Cologne). The online databse contains a huge number of pages with detailed information about individual ancient artefacts (as well as reproductions), buildings and monuments, many with photos and illustrations, as well as scans of books and periodicals. The majority of the information is reliable, although there are some errors and some entries are outdated. A valuable free resource for researchers.

The Internet Archive, a free digital library of printed (scanned) and electronic publications (including old websites), as well as other cultural artefacts, including images, films and sound files. Its collection of scanned books and periodicals in several languages and several electronic formats is particularly good.

As with other websites containing scanned publications, in some of the text-only versions, particularly those printed in unusual typefaces (e.g. Fraktur and other older fonts) or non-Latin scripts (e.g. Greek), the text has been mangled by the scanning OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software and is unreadable. This is one reason why Bill Thayer (see below) types the contents of publications himself for his LacusCurtius website.
