Meleager connects to the platform Anthologia Graeca. On the home page, they finds a list of the Greek Anthology epigrams grouped by books.

To edit the information on the platform, Meleager must log in with their user account.

At the top of the page, on the right, they have access to the "Account" tab to create a new account or to sign in to an existing account.

To create a new account, Meleager must send a sign up request by contacting the Canada Research Chair on Digital Textualities.

To log out, they will simply click on his username (which appears in the top right corner instead of the "Account" tab) and select "Log Out".

Epigram pages

Each epigram is considered to be an abstract entity, and each entity has its own page on the platform. Therefore, one epigram = one entity = one page.

On a given epigram's page, Meleager finds several pieces of information:

example : epigram 1.19 is epigram 19 of book 1.

example : epigram 1.19 has the URN "urn:cts:greekLit:tlg7000.tlg001" and is indexed in the Perseus catalog :

example : the epigram 5.75 has been named "la fille mise à mal" by Marguerite Yourcenar.

Meleager can consult the last modifications made to an epigram and their author.

By clicking on the navigation bar at the bottom of the page, Meleager can access the previous or next epigram.


In the header, a menu tab allows Meleager :


On the side of each section, a "+" icon allows Meleager to add new content. Any user can add and edit content. It is not possible to modify information created by another user unless you have administrator privileges.
