Ancient benchmarks
I thought to myself what would be a good way to get into identifying or translating an ancient text. How could one that has little to no scholary background find accessiblity in making decisions regarding ancient texts. It occurs to me that it would be beneficial to have a catalog of ancient texts that are written in different scripts from any such topic that can be organized to authentic dates and regions, tongues, dialects.

With that capability one could use the source of those other writings to know phrases, puns, slangs, etc from the period based on the other writings and get a much better understanding of the writings from the period and how the language is used and how word are interpreted.

I would have to assume such a library exists already. Any ideas where?
And if its online?
