Καλῶς ἤλθατε! Welcome!

FragTrag.1 is preparing an open-access Database on the life and fragmentary works (tragedies and satyr dramas) of 46 Greek tragedians of the 6th and the 5th centuries BC. These poets include, respectively, the pioneers of Greek drama, as well as the competitors of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides (the only three tragedians from whom we have complete works). In addition to providing important information on the life and the career of these poets, the database will include the first Digital Edition of their fragmentary works.

The project is hosted by the Department of Philology, University of Patras and its Centre for the Study of Myth and Religion in Greek and Roman Antiquity. Its research and other activities are also supported by the Institute of Digital Innovation/ URCΙ.
