Unsupervised Detection and Visualisation of Textual Reuse on Ancient Greek Texts

Marco B, Annette Ge, Thomas Eckart, Gerhard Heyer


This paper describes both a syntactic and a semantic approach to the detection of citations. After introducing these two approaches, some results are presented that focus on ancient Greek texts and the adaptability of these approaches on two different literary genres. Furthermore, visualisations for ancient Greek philologists (micro view) as well as for historians (macro view) are provided to highlight the combination of text mining results with Visual Analytics.
