DYABOLA covers classical Greek and Roman art and archaeology with some material on the Ancient Near East. Includes books, essays in books, journal articles, and dissertations on Ancient Greek, Roman and Near Eastern, Byzantine, Early Christian and Etruscan art and archaeology.
Between 1946 and 1987 the International Association for Classical Archaeology (AIAC) published the Fasti Archaeologici. It contained very useful summary notices of excavations throughout the area of the Roman Empire. However, spiraling costs and publication delays combined to render it less and less useful. AIACs board of directors thus decided in 1998 to discontinue the publication and to seek a new way of recording and diffusing new results. The Fasti Online is the result of this effort.

Based on its 1996 predecessor -- the 34-volume Dictionary of Art, ed. by Jane Turner -- the articles for The Grove Encyclopedia of Classical Art and Architecture have been updated (both text and bibliography), re-edited, and re-worked by Campbell so as to render them his creations. (That is why none of the entries bear the names of the original authors.) One cannot speak too highly of this publication; it is a fundamental resource. A substantial thematic index completes the work.

The Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum, an international multi-volume series, is the fundamental source in the field of ancient vase painting. Begun in 1922, it has as its goal the publication of all known collections of ancient vases of all periods, shapes, styles, and functions. So far fascicules have appeared on collections in Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Denmark (and the DDR), Greece, France, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Czechoslovakia, the United States, and Yugoslavia, each written by a different author. Each fascicle contains either loose (in a portfolio) or bound plates and a text block with full descriptions of the vases and references to other sources. In 2004 the Beazley Archive at Oxford University digitized the out of print volumes of the CVA. Additional volumes are being added slowly. In 2007 100,000 objects were in the database.

The Beazley Archive provides access to many of the drawings and notes of the famous scholar of Greek painted pottery, Sir John Beazley. It also offers a useful Dictionary containing "illustrated explanations of names, technical terms, and other vocabulary relating to Greek history, myth, geography, art, and architecture" and hosts other ancient Greek and Roman databases, such as:
The Pottery Database - text and image database of Athenian black- and red-figure pottery ca 625-300 B.C. including 1500 drawings by Sir Beazley of Athenian pottery. In 2007, the pottery database had "150,000 records and 130,000 images."
Sculpture - Divided into "Casts Database" and "Sculpture Inscriptions Database"
Merged databases - Search the Beazely Pottery and the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum (see below) databases simultaneously.

Detailed entries, occasionally accompanied by maps or diagrams, make this an excellent resource for the study of Classical Roman structures. Entries include bibliographic references. A glossary, a chronological list of dated monuments, preface, introduction, and the section of bibliographical notes and abbreviations add to the value of Richardson's Dictionary. Complemented by Platner and Ashby's A Topographical dictionary of ancient Rome (Art Ref. DG 16 .P685) and Nash's Pictorial dictionary of ancient Rome (Art Ref. NA 310 .N28 1961).

Referred to by it's authors, "Platner and Ashby" is a standard for studying Rome's monuments and overall plan. All monuments, ruins, and areas, are included even those now lost. The bibliographies list scholarship and all relevant ancient texts. A chronological index lists monuments by known dates.
Supplemented but not entirely superceded by Nash (NA 310 .N28 1961) and Richardson (DG 68 .R5 1992). Updated and expanded by Steinby (Art Ref. DG 63 .L49 1993) The text of Platner and Ashby has also been digitized and is part of the Perseus Digital Library. [BQP 7Feb'13]
