Description: Generously supported by the A.G. Leventis Foundation, the DACL is an advanced digital library that covers Cypriot literary production in a time span of almost thirteen centuries (7th century BC to 5th-6th century AD). Ancient texts are enhanced by the visually rich presentation of related archaeological materials and sites. The DACL builds and enriches the momentous six-volume corpus of the Αρχαία Κυπριακή Γραμματεία, led by P. Stavrou, authored by A. Voskos, K. Michaelides and I.G. Taifacos and published by the Leventis Foundation between 1995 and 2008. The new searchable digital library is accessible online aimed to engage its users in the study of Ancient Cypriot Literature providing an array of novel digital applications designed to enhance user experience well beyond the original printed volumes.
