- A wholly preserved author who quotes many lost authors (e.g Athenaeus)
- A lost author quoted by still-preserved authors (e.g. Istros, who is lost but is quoted by Athenaeus, Plutarch, etc.)
We need stable ways of identifying the following
- the authors
- the fragments themselves
- the passages in which they are quoted
- the works in which they are quoted
- the editions and translations of the works in which they are quoted
- editions which are collections of fragments and translations of these editions
- entities mentioned within the fragments
- annotations on the fragments
We want to be able to record the following links
- between the fragment identifier and the instances of reuse
- between the fragment identifier and the attributed author
- between the fragment identifier and an edition which collects it
- between the quoted passage and the entities referenced in it
- do we also need to link the fragment identifier and entities referenced in it?
- between the quoted passage and translations
We want to be able to make the following types of annotations
- the type of reuse
- canonical citation for the fragment (e.g. FR 1. Gaede ??)
- of the initial creation of the fragment
- of the work which quotes it
- author birth and death
- editorial commentary on each fragment
is there a distinction between short and long commentaries??
- bibliography ??
- morphosyntactic analysis of the quoted passage
- text reuse analysis (across different quotes of the same fragment)
- syntactic reuse analysis
- translation alignments (between quoted passages and their translations)
- text reuse alignments (between different quotes of the passage in the same language)
- related to text-reuse analysis but not the same?
We want to be able to organize fragments into the following types of collections:
- all fragments represented in a given edition which includes fragments from one or many authors
- all fragments attributed to a specific author
- all fragments quoted by a specific author
- all fragments referencing a specific event ??
- all fragments attributed to a specific time period ??
- of a specific type
