The names of places, persons, and peoples were annotated and disambiguated, and they were then linked to authority files and gazetteers; this process of disambiguation allowed us to display the text of Thucydides and all the other data in our collections, such as monuments or other objects in Arachne, that include references to the same entities in a unified reading environment.
Loeb Classical Library
The work of Thucydides is browsable in multiple different views. In the Reading view, the passages of the text are displayed with the named entities highlighted: different colors are used to distinguish between the classes of entities persons, geographical names, man-made landmarks, organizations ; on a side pane, those entities that are linked to a geographic location e.
Entities in history are not important per se except as they are involved in a series of human activities. At first glance, it would seem obvious that a work of historical prose dedicated to the war between the two superpowers of its times should mostly contain narrations of events and that consequently it should not be difficult to recognize and identify them in the flow of the text. The designers of Hellespont decided to proceed in the same direction and to thus also include passages of ancient texts within the data that are linked in the model.
For example, if we know that one object the walls of Athens and one actor e. Themistocles are involved in the same event the Athenians, following Themistocles' advice, rebuilt the city fortifications destroyed by the Persians , and if we identify a specific passage in a textual source Thucydides, Histories , 1. Then, by setting up a chronology of the annotated events either absolute or relative , it becomes possible to create a timeline that allows readers to access the related sources in the collection.

Therefore, several readers in the history of scholarship have already undertaken the task of indexing and summarizing the text according to the most relevant content of each paragraph. These summaries, that are found in the printed editions and translations of Thucydides, can be adopted as a guide for event annotation. The portion of the text between Histories 1. This approach was adopted for a first stage of Hellespont; it was then implemented in the event view within the GapVis interface, where the content of the Pentecontaetia can be accessed from a timeline; each event is further described in its structural relations with other related episodes which is particularly useful for skirmishes or operations that are part of a larger campaign and in its internal articulation its actors, or its temporal and geographical frame .
The historical commentary of Hornblower was chosen as the main reference for the identification of the events. Different scholars may differ considerably even in their segmentation of a text, and the choice for one solution over the others might be arbitrary. Yet the main problem with this approach is often one of granularity. In such cases, readers are forced to summarize chapters and paragraphs using general labels, while the stages and the articulation of the facts remain difficult to capture.
Thus, for example chapter 1. In such cases, the reader that wants to isolate the stages of an event with greater accuracy is forced to look closely at the linguistic structure of each sentence. Consequently, instead of taking textual units like chapters or paragraphs as a basis for the annotation, we were forced to consider the linguistic articulation of the text itself. This task of isolating real-world events in natural language, however, is extremely challenging. An example from Thucydides taken from the aforementioned narration of the Athenian intervention in Ithome may help in illustrating the kind of pitfalls that we encountered:.
Yet it is immediately clear that the last one of them does not belong to the domain of history, but the verb mood characterizes the event as the unrealistic outcome of a counterfactual hypothesis, both in Greek and in the English translation. On the other hand, even the first verb, which may seem to those familiar with Greek history to point to the main fact that is referred to here the Athenians are summoned to the siege of Ithome , is not unproblematic. If we consider the sentence that precedes, which is reported in brackets at the beginning of the translation, we see that Thucydides is not reporting a new event, he's instead alluding for the second time to the same episode he narrated in the previous sentence; the main focus of the first quoted sentence is the cause that brought about the Athenian intervention, while the fact that they were called in is simply repeated from the preceding statement.
This distinction, which may seem trivial to the human reader and is most likely performed unconsciously by them, requires a subltler linguistic distinction between given and new information. The internal analysis of the kind that we would like to implement for our event view with the actors involved and temporal and geographical frames is also more complex than it may seem at first. Their identity cannot be guessed without considering the whole context . Therefore, if we want to assess how many events we can identify in these sentences and what the named entities involved in them are, we must consider a rather large spectrum of linguistic phenomena, from part-of-speech tagging, to verbal modality, co-refence resolution, and syntactic structure.
A definition of the semantic role played by each argument must then be introduced in addition to the labels for syntactic function. Our task, thus, became that of providing a comprehensive linguistic annotation of all these phenomena, so that our annotated corpus may support an alternative, more data-driven analysis than the one based on summaries found in the scholarly literature. Although a thorough discussion of these questions would be out of the scope of our paper, we believe that the multi-layer treebank that we have created support the kind of analysis that we were aiming at see in particular Section 3 and figure 4.
As we have already said, treebanks are digital corpora that embed word-by-word annotation on linguistic phenomena, including at least part-of-speech tagging and syntax. For classical studies, a number of treebanks of Greek and Latin listed above have been recently made available to the public. All the texts are chunked into sentences and a complete morphological analysis including lemmatization of each word is provided [ Bamman et al. The set of relations between heads and dependents can thus be visualized as a dependency tree, with acyclic, directed edges connecting the words see Figure 3 below.
The annotation of morphology and syntax is provided for every word in each text, including for example particles and conjunctions, as well as for punctuation marks . The morphological annotation and the type of dependency grammar adopted by Perseus are modeled on two layers the morphological and the so-called analytical layer of the Prague Dependency Treebank of Czech PDT . At present, sentence- and word-tokenization of the Ancient Greek texts included in the Perseus Digital Library is fully automated, nonetheless no NLP-tool is available that provides reliable automatic tagging and syntactic parsing  ; therefore the work of annotation is entirely manual.
In spite of these limitations, the AGDT provides an excellent standard that supports the morphological and syntactic analysis of Greek. Taking advantage of this model has turned out to be the best practice for our own work. Our task was thus twofold. On the one hand, we used the format and the rules of the AGDT to annotate the syntax and morphology of the Pentecontaetia. As we have seen, the treatment of syntax in the AGDT follows the model of analytical annotation of surface syntax used by the Prague Dependency Treebank. This layer, called tectogrammatical , encodes many of those linguistic phenomena that we hoped to describe in the text of Thucydides [ Sgall et al.
Its adaptation to Greek proved to be a complex process, both in the definition of a set of guidelines for the different grammatical constructions and in the concrete work of textual annotation, which cannot be discussed in full here . In what follows, we will limit ourselves to describing some basic concepts of tectogrammatical sentence representation. The overall meaning of the sentence is captured by the set of head-dependent relations and by a combination of other factors. In particular, a tectogrammatical tree still represents the structure of a sentence as a dependency tree, which is not different from what happens with the standard syntactic annotation of the AGDT compare the two trees of Figure 3.
