(From the project website, accessed 2019-09-03):

Diktyon is a scientific network of digital resources and databases on Greek manuscripts Faced with the proliferation of digital resources on the web and the risk of dispersion of the data, the idea was to find ways to coordinate different enterprises in the field of Greek manuscript studies.

The network operates through the presence of unique identifiers for items that are common to the different resources (shelf marks, authors, etc..). These identifiers are integrated in each database participating in the network, which then develops the necessary scripts to query other databases of the network through these identifiers.
