IconAegean – Exploring Aegean Iconography
The IconAegean Database holds images and data on all the seals published in the Corpus der minoischen und mykenischen Siegel (CMS). The seal data is set out in the same format as in the IconAData Database and uses the standard vocabulary as set out in the IconADict Database and the book The Iconography of Aegean Seals. The IconAegean Database allows the full CMP Corpus of Aegean Seals to be ordered, for the first time, according to the iconography. Users will be able to move through the entries enjoying the sequence of like images gathered easily as never before by a single sorting procedure. Users will also be able to find groups of comparable seal images as they search on the first three fields in the Database which are now complete. The IconAegean Database will provide for the ordering of the seal material according to iconographic criteria (a first in Aegean iconographic studies) and vallow multitermed searching across its database fields.
