Associations in the Greco-Roman World: A Companion to the Sourcebook

"Users of the site can browse through hundreds of inscriptions and
papyri(450 so far) involving guilds, immigrant groups, and other associations
in the ancient Mediterranean.  The user can browse by geography and by topics
(including gods). There is also a feature I called "selected exhibits" on
(hopefully) interesting topics to a general reader (with about 10 inscriptions
in each exhibit).  There are many documents with English translations, and the
user can choose to view just those (in selected exhibits). The plan is to
continue to expand the website with more inscriptions and papyri relating to
these groups."

Thanks to Philip Harland for the blurb and reference to this site.
