Everything papyrological (is there an adjective for papyrus?)

Big data! These days, I tells ya – you can stumble across the most interesting collections of information.

Trismegistos , an organization dedicated to the study of ancient texts from the ancient world, has created a searchable database of nearly 220,000 documents. You can click on a map or type in a name or location.  I haven’t examined the rest of the site, but you can find collections of texts, people, and places in antiquity as well. Amazing.
