Searching for Greek Texts Online

Here are the links from the post I deleted a couple days ago.

I’ve seen the first one before, but never the second, which I have to say is extremely impressive endeavor. I think that if you ever need to find a Greek text online, this second link is the place to start.

Ancient Greek Texts

Library of Ancient Texts Online

Here’s their description of the site (that last bit of bold is mine):

The Library of Ancient Texts Online aims to be the internet’s most thorough catalogue of online copies of ancient Greek texts, both in Greek and in translation. This is a site for all with an interest in the Classics. Very many texts from Ancient Greece are available on the world-wide web, at a variety of sites, in a variety of formats, and in a variety of languages. Some of the richest sites are massive endeavours such as The Perseus Project at Tufts University, or Project Gutenberg. Some visitors will already be familiar with these sites and others. (For links to some other sites, see the Abbreviations page.) However, even these sites lack many texts: some sites contain some comparatively obscure texts, others contain others. LATO helps to repair this situation by gathering a comprehensive set of links to those texts that are available free of charge. No texts are actually hosted on this site.

Links in LATO are organised by author, or, where authorship is uncertain, by the titles of texts. The aim is to make online copies of ancient Greek texts easily accessible to both scholars and to those with a general interest in ancient literature, to ancient historians and archaeologists, teachers and students.
