Tagging of places in IRCyr and IRT




There are more cities represented in IRCyr (5 + Gebel) than there were in InsAph (1!), so place tagging is slightly more relevant to us.




The region is always Cyrenaica/Libya, which is indicated using the following two tags (in the teiHeader):


  • <geogName type="ancientRegion" key="Cyrene">Cyrenaica</geogName>
  • <geogName type="modernCountry" key="LY">Libya</geogName>
