This index is part of the third volume of the Teubner edition of the Deipnosophists published by Georg Kaibel in 1890 (Dialogi Personae). The index includes a list of the characters of the banquets described by Athenaeus. 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 Kaibel for each character.
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 Dialogi Personae has been enriched with a conversion of Casaubon references into Kaibel references. Given that the automatic conversion generates an expansion of data (e.g., 5.221a = 5.63 and 5.64), the system allows users to disambiguate and vote the correct correspondence between Casaubon and Kaibel paragraphs.
