This index is part of the third volume of the Teubner edition of the Deipnosophists published by August Meineke in 1859 (Index Scriptorum). The index includes a list of authors and works cited by Athenaeus in the fifteen books of the Deipnosophists. The digital version of the index has been created starting from the OCR output of the printed volume.
The OCR output has been parsed using bash scripts and manually corrected in order to create an SQL database organized in fields containing data (in Latin and Greek) collected and arranged by Meineke for each author and work.
Two web-based interface tools have been implemented for querying the SQL Database. A web-based Application Programming Interface (API) allows to integrate index data into external services.
The digital version of the Index Scriptorum has been enriched with a conversion of Casaubon references into Kaibel references. Given that the automatic conversion generates an expansion of data (e.g., 6.273a = 6.104 and 6.105), the system allows users to disambiguate and vote the correct correspondence between Casaubon and Kaibel paragraphs.
