Annee Philologique


L’Année Philologique, published by the Société Internationale de Bibliographie Classique, is a specialized bibliographic database of scholarly works relating to all aspects of ancient Greek and Roman civilizations. Its subjects are:

  • Greek and Latin literature and linguistics, including early Christian texts and patristics
  • Greek and Roman history, art, archaeology, philosophy, religion, mythology, music, science
  • scholarly subspecialties such as numismatics, papyrology and epigraphy.

L’Année Philologique contains more than 810,000 records and includes citations to journal articles and books in over 40 languages. Abstracts of journal articles are in English, German, Spanish, French or Italian depending on the place of publication (i.e. French publications will be indexed with French abstracts even if the article itself is written in English). Books entries often include tables of contents and book review information.

L’Année philologique database includes all volumes of the annual index, beginning with Volume I published in 1928.

The records are classified in a two-part system:

  • Ancient authors and texts
  • Subjects and disciplines.
