Return to Scholarly Bibliographies Available Online: Classical Antiquity

This page is used for collecting links to existing open-access bibliographies that fit the scope of the project. Please email additional suggestions to pacheson at Thanks!

If you'd like to add items yourself, feel free to edit the wiki. (Currently editing is restricted to registered users, due to spam, but I am happy to approve user accounts.) Format of entries is suggested:

  • Title (usually taken from the page itself, unless that is nonexistent or obscure).
  • Link (include text of url and the wiki will automatically hotlink it).
  • Author (individual or corporate, with academic affiliation if appropriate).
  • Last update date (if available; if not I try to note how late items in the bibliography go).
  • Description. Things to note include the audience (some bibliographies specifically target undergraduates or the general public), what sorts of resources are listed (books, articles, web sites, scholarly or popular?), if there is a focus on resources in a specific language, if there are annotations, if the bibliography is structured with sub-headings and examples of them, etc.

If an author is not listed, feel free to add a name as a sub-heading.
