Welcome to the Pliny Project

This site and its associated web application is a digital resource for the correspondents of Pliny the Younger and his world, especially in its social dimensions and the connections between his associates.

Use the quick search or menu above to explore the site.

Updated code

The site now features updated code with a dynamic d3.js visualization and the capacity to add citations and references to individual people in the prosopography. I have also upgraded the MySQL database on the off chance I ever decide that I must use emoji. 🎉
