Trismegistos is an interdisciplinary portal of papyrological and epigraphical resources, formerly Egypt and the Nile valley (800 BC-AD 800), now expanding to the Ancient World in general.
The Texts database is the core component of the Trismegistos project. It provides metadata about papyrological and epigraphical resources from the Ancient World, aiming to incorporate information about all texts from antiquity.
The People database, building on the Prosopographia Ptolemaica, is a complex set of prosopographical and onomastic databases. At the heart of the structure is the REF database, which lists attestations of people identified by personal names. It is linked to PER, a database of individuals, and to NAMVAR, a database of personal name variants which is in turn linked to NAM, a database of names.
The Places database, expanding the geographic database of the Fayum project, is a set of places in Egypt and increasingly also outside (in view of the expansion of TM to the ancient world in general). It contains attestations of toponyms in texts, but is also linked to the provenance field in Trismegistos Texts.
The Collections database, built on the Leuven Homepage of Papyrus Collections (LHPC), is a set of modern institutional and private collections of texts and their inventory numbers. It is searchable both separately and in the Texts database.
The Archives database, also built on the Leuven Homepage of Papyrus Collections (LHPC), is a set of collections of texts in antiquity, mainly in Egypt, and the texts that are part of these archives. It is searchable separately, leading to the texts themselves.
