One of the features of this web publication is a very rich selection of hyper-links and cross-references, both to other parts
of the same site (for example, between inscriptions and commentary in both directions, appendices, footnotes, etc.), and to
external resources (e.g. prosopographies, online articles, partner projects).
In the narrative material, footnotes are marked with a superscript number.1 Clicking on or selecting this number will take you to the footnote at the bottom of the screen (although if the footnote
is close to the end of the page it may not be at the very top of your screen). Once you have read the footnote, clicking on
the footnote number (or using the 'back' function in your browser) will return you to the place in the text you came from.
Thumbnails to images
The inscriptions and epigraphic notebook pages contain 'thumbnails', small images of photographs that link to the full image.
Clicking on or selecting the thumbnail will cause the full-size image to open in a new browser window. To return to the previous
page you will need to close or hide the new window.
Links to inscriptions
Links from the narrative pages to the inscriptions are labelled by inscription number. There is a small 'tool tip' message
when you hover over the link telling you that it is a link to "Inscription x." To return to the previous page, use the 'back' function on your browser.
Links to commentary
Links from inscriptions or narrative sections to particular sections of the commentary are labelled by section number and
paragraph (e.g. IX.12). There is a small 'tool tip' message when you hover over the link telling you that it is a link to
"Commentary x.x." To return to the previous page, use the 'back' function on your browser.
Links to fasti
Links from narrative sections to the fasti are normally labelled "List of bishops/governors/local officials"; depending on
the context, these links will either take you to the introduction to the list, or to the entry for a particular individual
within the group. There is a small 'tool tip' message when you hover over the link telling you that it is a link to "Fasti:
(bishops/governors/local officials): x." To return to the previous page, use the 'back' function on your browser.
Links to bibliography
Bibliographical references in the inscriptions and elsewhere often link to the relevant entry in the History and Bibliography
of the Inscriptions (on the Ins.Aph. web site). There is a small 'tool tip' message when you hover over the link telling you
that it is a link to "History and Bibliography of the Inscriptions author (year)." These links will take you to the point in the file where this entry appears, although if the item is close to the end of
the page it may not be at the top of your screen. If you are lost, the 'Find in this page' facility of your browser may help
you locate the exact point. To return to the previous page, use the 'back' function on your browser.
Pop-ups in indices
Headwords in most indices of names, persons, and terms, link to a pop-up window which gives more information about the person
or term listed. These pop-ups are smaller than a full window and contain minimal information such as full name, prosopographical
reference, and Greek forms. Any links within these pop-ups (internal or external) will open in a new, full-size window.
Links to print-friendly view
The contents of this publication may be either read online or printed out and perused at leisure. In order to make the printed
version more user-friendly, a separate set of web pages has been generated which do not have the banner, logo, or sidebar,
and in which unsightly navigation links and menus have been disabled. See the links at the top and bottom of every page to
open this print-friendly version in a new window on your browser. To return to the normal view, close or hide the new window.
Web sites: links labelled with this image (dummy link) will take you to external websites (there is also a small 'tool tip' message when you hover over the link telling you that
"This link will take you out of te ALA website"). Neither the ALA project nor King's College London are responsible for the
content of these pages or the links contained within them. To return to this site, use the 'back' function on your browser.
Inscriptions of Aphrodisias: links to the bibliography, Deering notebooks, or other resources stored on the Ins.Aph. website are labelled with a small 'IA' symbol, and offer a 'tool-tip' telling you that they point off-site. To return to
this site, use the 'back' function on your browser.
Online articles: many of the online articles linked to from the bibliography are in Jstor, a site which requires subscription to read the
contents, or other subscriber-only sites (e.g. AJA, ZPE). If your institution has a subscription, you should be able to link directly to these articles; if you have an individual
subscription, you may need to enter your account details before accessing the articles. If neither you nor your institution
are subscribers, you will not be able to read these articles online, and should instead consult your library (as for all those
journals not offering articles online).
Downloadable source code (XML)
Individual inscriptions: at the end of each inscription is a link to the XML code from which this page was generated, along with ALA's temporary version
of the EpiDoc DTD. Selecting this link will open the XML in your browser, which may be able to show the content meaningfully.
It will probably be more useful, however, to save the file to disc (right-click or control-click and select 'save link to
disk'), and open it with an XML editor.
All inscriptions: on the inscriptions front page is a link to a ZIP file containing all of the inscriptions in XML, and the hacked DTD, bundled
into a single folder. Save this ZIP file to disc and unpack it into a folder using a ZIP utility (e.g. Winzip, Pkunzip, Stuffit)
to browse the XML files off-line.
