The Advanced Papyrological Information System (APIS) is a collections-based databank hosting images and metadata pertaining to inscribed papyrological materials largely from ancient Egypt. Objects date from the first half of the 2nd millenium BCE to the medieval period and include papyri, ostraca, paper, parchment, and tablets (bronze, lead, wood, and wax) inscribed in Egyptian, Greek, Latin, Arabic and other languages. The project hosts ca. 25,000 records and 15,000 images from 21 collections around the world.
