Abstract
When exploring the vast territory of ancient Greek culture, let Perseus heroically guide the way ... Perseus 2.0 that is. A product of the Perseus Project at Tufts University, this virtual library includes more than 420 works by 31 authors in both Greek (e.g., Plato, Homer) and English, extremely detailed entries for Greek art and architecture located throughout the world, and a number of reference works (such as a 35,000-word Greek-English lexicon, an encyclopedia, and a searchable atlas of the ancient world). In addition, there are over 25,000 full-screen images (photographs and drawings) of architecture, archaeological sites, coins, vases, and sculpture.
