TLG: Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

This database contains all the surviving ancient Greek texts from the period between Homer (8th century B.C.) and A.D. 600, and a large number of texts deriving from the period between A.D. 600 and the fall of the Byzantium in 1453. It benefits researchers in classics, archaeology, history, philosophy, linguistics, and theology/religious studies.

Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum

The Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum systematically collects newly published Greek inscriptions as well as publications on previously known documents. It presents complete Greek texts of all new inscriptions with a critical apparatus; it summarizes new readings, interpretations, and studies of known inscriptions, and occasionally presents the Greek text of these documents.
