There are so many wonderfully comprehensive sources
of Classical information on the web : if you need a specific answer,
then Perseus or Google are the
best places to start.. If you want in depth coverage on a topic,
the Oxford site should be your first port
The Oracle of Loxias
My own service! Classical questions, translation, argument
and discussion all promptly dealt with by email.

The website for the world's most popular Latin Course. The
games and resources are still at www.caecilius.com
do you want to know today?
This is a fantastic resource from the University of Kentucky:
you can search directly for information in Perseus (including
the new Lewis & Short Latin Dictionary - new on the www that
is) - and in almost every other Classical resource you could
imagine. For the scholar rather than the layman, however.
Greek Sites on the World Wide Web
This is very popular site, where favorite Classics sites are
listed under 4 headings - Texts, Art, Geography, Essential Resources.
I approve highly of this site, especially as my Exekias' Page
is currently (November 1997) top of the Art listings! If you
want instant access to sites of proven quality, this is your
best first port-of-call. The webmaster, Bob Fisher, also runs
the superb Bulfinch's
Mythology. Not updated since May 2000 - some links are out
of date, but still a useful resource. site.

of Classical Civilisation (specifically aimed at those teaching
the JACT syllabus for A Level). Now free access via www.jact.org
This started off as a list which Bill updated for you regularly
via email. There is now a website (with the longest URL I've
ever come across!) - but some of the files are enormous, and
some of the links are dodgy. Bill maintains an active list of
well over 1000 ancient sites all with some ROMAN connection
(Greek is there, but normally only sites which have Roman stuff
as well). All sites are reviewed and classified - this is a
truly amazing resource, which is automatically updated every
Serious students of Greek literature, art and civilisation
will already know about Perseus. If you want detailed information
supported by references and pictures, go there directly now
using the new Lookup
tool . It is extremely easy to use, if you know roughly
what you are looking for. Just type in any word or name you
wish to look up, and the tool will connect you to data from
the art and archaeology catalogs, the encyclopedia, the browser,
the English index, and the English-Greek word search and gives
them a simple standard interface. In addition, the lookup tool
deals with alternate names such as Heracles/Hercules and Athena/Athene.
Since October 1997 there's also a growing amount of Roman material
(including commoner authors and Lewis & Short's dictionary.
Nothing visual, as yet.

proper accented Greek text on your PC screen, this
is how. Perseus only gives you half the story! If what you
want's not in Perseus, keep on searching ...
The Classics Pages, and other useful sites, are listed under

Immediate access to dictionaries, thesaurus, and many other
facilites (including the Bible). Translate any word from one
language into any other (it's not too hot on Latin, though!)
Ultimate Index of All
An excellent general source for the Ancient World (not restricted
to just Greece and Rome) It is long, but is amazingly comprehensive.
Try not to get distracted by the links to discussions on the

upgraded and massively expanded.
