Abstract

The study of papyri written in ancient Greek during the millennium that spans between Alexander the Great and the Arab conquest of Egypt already benefits from major digital tools (searchable content on https://papyri.info/, metadata on https://www.trismegistos.org/, many online catalogues providing images). Recent advances in Computer Vision now allow a step further in the study of their materiality.

This presentation will give a short summary of the state of the art with a focus on digital palaeography, holistic online editions and promising future steps.
