DĀMOS - Database of Mycenaean at Oslo [1] - is an annotated electronic corpus of all the published Mycenaean texts, the earliest (ca. XV-XII B.C.) written evidence of the Greek language, comprised of inscriptions in the Linear B syllabic script. In this first online version of DĀMOS it is possible to browse the transliterations[2] of all the Mycenaean texts and to perform word searches[3] in the whole corpus or in a desired subgroup. For each document you will get text, notes, metadata and a basic bibliography. The texts are are based on standard reference editions, but are constantly updated with new findings and/or new readings. The texts are annotated for epigraphical, morphological and syntactical features.
