Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG)  

The TLG has collected and digitized most literary texts written in Ancient Greek from Homer to the fall of Byzantium in AD 1453, and extending to the great renaissance series and other later projects. Its goal is to create a comprehensive digital library of Ancient Greek literature from antiquity to the present era. It has a sophisticated set of interlocking features that enable broad and specific searches for particular words, groups of related words, and particular phrases. Its results include details of the texts in which the results are found, links to translations and critical editions, and other online sources.
