Continuing our effort to improve the digital edition of the Derveni Papyrus, we developed a new form for the text under the framework of the CHS-iMouseion Project. This user-friendly teaching and research tool offers the option of masking or revealing the readings of the editors by simply clicking on the text wherever the arrow appears.

Furthermore, one can easily navigate from one column to another, either successively via the arrows or randomly via the sidebar menu. The iMouseion architecture provides as well the possibility of a multiversion Derveni Papyrus. Due to the existence of unplaced fragments, this exceptionally challenging document is still being reconstructed. New reconstructions can be displayed side by side, offering a simultaneous view of the different versions of each column. The Proceedings are now available here.
