Thanks to The History Blog for pointing out a fascinating research project in which YOU get to decipher for-real ancient mysterious texts. The Oxyrynchus Papyri were discovered by a couple of archaeologists, over a hundred years ago, in an ancient garbage tip. The problem is, they're in a zillion tiny pieces. And of course fragment shapes don't match precisely because papyrus has worn away and they don't necessarily have all the bits. They need to identify the letters on all the fragments, so a computer can then speedily push bits back and forth until everything forms valid ancient Greek words.
So now Oxford University's enlisted the help of some astrophysicists, who are very good at sticking lots of tiny pictures together, to build a site where anyone can help them by identifying the letters on the fragments. They need our help because computers are not conspicuously good at identifying handwritten ancient Greek. People however are good at that sort of thing, even if they don't know a word of the language.
It's known for sure that there are some major lost works hidden in those fragments. They've already pulled out parts of a lost play by Euripides.
But if you come across any fragments that say Ἀτλαντὶς, just pass over them quietly, okay?
