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

If you'd like to add items yourself, feel free to edit the wiki. 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.

The categories are ad-hoc at the moment and may change as the project develops a robust classification scheme for subjects.

Advanced Papyrological Information System (APIS)

Berichtigungsliste der Griechischen Papyrusurkunden aus Ägypten (BL)

  • This series collects and publishes proposed emendations to texts and dating. Each entry gives the bibliographic information of the proposal and prints a new text if the proposed changes are substantial enough.

"See P.Oxy. XXI 2288.1" means the word or phrase cited can be found in volume 21 of The Oxyrhynchus Papyri, text 2288, line 1. Some authors will format the citation slightly differently, but nearly all now use these standard abbreviated volume names, though some publications, especially older ones, will use slightly different abbreviations. The Checklist also provides a list of periodicals that cater to papyrological publications and gives the abbreviated form of the journal name, which is useful for looking up citations, and which should be followed when citing these journals.

There is a help guide on using the database.

  • A papyrologist's second home. collects textual data from the DDbDP, metadata from the HGV, and any digital image(s) to give the most complete information about a published papyrus, and even some unpublished papyri (through APIS).

The Papyrus Carlsburg Collection

Sammelbuch griechischer Urkunden aus Aegypten (SB)

  • This series collects documentary Greek texts from Egypt that are published in journals. Each numbered entry gives: the writing material, the type of document, the bibliographic information of the text, its holding information with inventory number, the origin of the text, its date, and finally the text of the document itself. Usually the entry simply re-publishes what is found in the editio princeps, but sometimes the editors will propose changes to the date or text, which will be noted. Like any publication, there are errors in the SB, and the date should always be checked in the HGV, while in regards to the text one should check the BL for any further proposed emendations.
