The Digital Fragmenta Historicorum Graecorum (DFHG) is the digital edition of the five volumes of the Fragmenta Historicorum Graecorum (FHG) produced under the direction of Monica Berti at the Alexander von Humboldt Chair of Digital Humanities at the University of Leipzig.
The FHG consists of a survey of excerpts from many different sources pertaining to 636 ancient Greek fragmentary historians. Excluding the first volume, authors are chronologically distributed and cover a period of time from the 6th century BC through the 7th century CE. Fragments are numbered sequentially and arranged by works and book numbers, when these pieces of information are available in the source texts preserving the fragments. Almost every Greek fragment is translated or summarized into Latin.
The digital editions of FHG vol. 1 (7.4 MB), FHG vol. 2 (6.4 MB), FHG vol. 3 (7.8 MB), FHG vol. 4 (7.4 MB), FHG vol. 5-1 (2.9 MB) and vol. 5-2 (3.9 MB) are available online. They collect fragments of authors from the 6th century BC through the 2nd century CE, including Apollodorus of Athens (with fragments of the Bibliotheca), historians of Sicily (Antiochus of Syracuse, Philistus of Syracuse, Timaeus of Tauromenius), the Atthidographers (Clidemus, Phanodemus, Androtio, Demo, Philochorus and Ister), Aristotle and his disciples, historians from the time of Alexander the Great until 306 CE, fragments from the beginning of the reign of Constantine (306 CE) through the reign of the emperor Phocas (602-610 CE), and Greek and Syriac historical fragments preserved in Armenian texts. The text of the Marmor Parium (with Latin translation, chronological table, and commentary) and the Greek text of the Marmor Rosettanum (with a French literal translation as well as a critical, historical, and archaeological commentary) are online in a seperate appendix at the end of vol. 1.
The DFHG is a model for producing digital editions of fragmentary texts. The project has been developing many tools and services that can be applied to other collections of fragmentary authors for visualizing and exploring their data, and for connecting it with external resources for further developments.
