Abstract: The paper describes the progress made by the FragTrag.1 project in developing an openly-accessed Database for the Greek Fragmentary Tragedians. The Database aims to collect all information at hand about the life and fragmentary works (tragedies and satyr dramas) of 45 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 digital biographical records for these poets, the Database will include the first born-digital edition of their fragmentary works and of selected testimonia referring to them.
