The Leuven Database of Ancient Books (LDAB) attempts to collect the basic information on all ancient literary texts, as opposed to documents. The user can find the oldest preserved copies of each text as well as a view of the reception of ancient literature throughout the Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine period.

LDAB is a FileMaker 5.5 database, running on a Mac OS X 10.2 platform.

This database has been part of the Trismegistos project for several years. As of January 2020, this site is paywalled.
