The linking of the seals mentioned in Arthur Evans' The Palace of Minos (1921-1935) with their entry in the CMS Seal Database in ARACHNE is now complete. Next to each seal and seal impression discussed in The Palace of Minos, which is available online in digital form by the University Library of Heidelberg, the reader can find the number of the seal in the CMS. When clicking on the link the user will be redirected to the field the seal occupies in the Seal Database in Arachne!

The entry of data in the new field Type of Living Creature (under the domain Living Creature) in the Seal Database in ARACHNE is now completed. The user can now search the images of the seal corpus for more general terms regarding living creatures. Specifically, one can search for a living creature, a human, a quadruped, a sea animal, a bird, an animal that does not belong to any of the above categories, and an unidentifiable living creature. Apart from these possibilities, the user can also search for images where only parts of living creatures, such as a hand or a leg, are displayed and ones where a combination of whole living creatures or their parts can be seen. The help system for this field is still being edited so the English-speaking user is advised to use the CMS Glossaries for finding the english equivalent to the German terms.

 

March 2013

The CMS Glossaries which will enable the non-German speaker to use the CMS databases in ARACHNE are now available! The user will find a German-English and an English-German version, each of which contains all terms used in the lists of terms of the CMS Databases.
