About this app

A project of the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation

A new way of experiencing Europe’s most ancient literary culture, implanted in its unforgettable landscape.

ToposText is a new interface that links readers and travelers to Europe’s most ancient literary culture and to the Greek landscape that inspired it. TT presents 5000 places relevant to the ancient Greek world -- ancient cities and shrines, medieval castles and towers, modern museums and excavation sites -- primarily in Greece but including major places from Spain to the Caucasus. It links those places to the ancient authors who wrote about them in Greek or Latin. A large classical library married to an up-to-date gazetteer, freely available as a mobile application or this web site.

Education / Reference Tool:

- Accurate coordinates for thousands of Greek historical sites
- Each site indexed to the ancient literary sources that mention it.
- A huge, free, portable library of classical texts in English
- Texts and places stored on-device – no internet access necessary.
- Location-aware display of site information.
- Recent archaeological information on many sites.

Unfortunately the new version of the app crashes immediately after launch in my pixel 2 xl running Android 9. It doesn't even allow me to send crash report. I like the concept of the app very much and I wish I could use it. I will certainly revise my rating once the crashing bug is fixed. Also it would be greatly appreciated if texts in original language are also available, allowing more serious student of classical culture to check the original text easily. Thanks for the work and hope you can fix the bug soon!

Too many bugs. I guess this is the pilot version that you rushed to launch without testing on real people. Interesting content but you are not promoting it in the best way. Why do names have numbers next to them? Who needs to see how many references you have for each name? it's superfluous information. Each piece of text needs a headline. How will we know what we are reading? There is no Help button where you could report issues with the App. App crashes sometimes when you click on a name.

What's new

An updated data base (August 2, 2019), with 350 new sites and monuments, for a total of 7538. We have added dozens of new texts, including Ioannis Malalas, the Annals of Niketas Choniates and Vienna Anonymous description of Athens, and subdivided other texts to make paragraphs smaller and easier to navigate. And we’ve enriched the modern descriptions of many obscurer sites with extracts from the Inventory of Ancient and Classical Poleis by Hansen et al
