> The SUDA On Line project (http://www.stoa.org/sol/) has over the past dozen years produced translations of ~25,000 entries from the over 30,000 entries in the SUDA,  a 10th century Byzantine Greek encyclopedia of the ancient Mediterranean.

Just a quick point which Prof. Mueller didn't emphasize: an important
part of the original vision of the project is that the translations
should be annotated - the Suda is a work of many qualities, and most
entries (particularly the biographies) are greatly enhanced by
scholarly annotation. The project is up to about 27,000 entries now.
