persName @types, @keys, and @regs


abstracting from IAph usage




  • attested
    • stands for "Person attested locally"--this is most people, of course
  • emperor
    • stands for member of imperial family
    • (in other projects involving the Greek world outside of the Roman empire we have used "ruler" instead of emperor, as a more catch-all term.)
  • divine
    • divinities, including both Olympian gods, angels/saints/etc., and abstract figures such as Agathe Tyche
  • consular
    • (not actually used, but suitable for tagging the names of eponymous consuls or archons *only* where they are used in dating formulae)
  • other
    • primarily historical figures such as Herodotos, Pindar, and the like, who fit into none of the above categories




  • in IRCyr @key is only used for pointing from divine and imperial names to the respective authority lists of these figures. In other projects (such as ALA 2004; IOSPE), a full prosopography of attested persons is also provided, and @key may also point to those lists.




  • on <name> rather than <perName>
  • This should contain a pointer to the table of regularized names, all in the nominative.


In practice, a full personal name tag might look something like this:


     <persName type="attested" key="person17"><name nymRef="#Διογένης">Δηογένου</name></persName>
