SearchCulture.gr is the Greek Aggregator for Cultural Heritage Content, a cultural digital space developed by EKT in collaboration with Digital Convergence. It aggregates Greek Digital Cultural Content produced by institutions through public funding.
EKT has recently published a new version of specifications to be followed by digitization projects. This specifications document constitutes up-to-date guidelines that will help beneficiaries of new digitization projects to produce and publish interoperable, qualitative and re-usable digital cultural content.
SearchCulture.gr now has two new ways of publishing data. The Web API allows third-party applications to search for and display data aggregated here. Linked Data is a publishing approach which allows data integration and use.
If you are an organization with cultural content, you can contribute it to SearchCulture.gr and Europeana. This way you will increase the findability and reach of your collections while helping showcase the dynamic of Greek cultural heritage.
EKT enriches and homogenizes the aggregated content with respect to types and chronological information. Therefore, the content of SearchCulture.gr is been classified to a compact and balanced set of types, to historical periods and is enriched with homogenized chronologies.
These blocks have not survived. A fragment of the subject represented has been recognised from Carrey’s drawings, even though it is not entirely clear. Four figures are depicted (107-110), himation clad and holding rectangular objects identified by most as cithara sounding-boards, by analogy with the citharists on the north side. Others have suggested that they carry pinakes or plaques, either votives or inscribed with the proceedings of the Athenian archons. In this case, the pinakophoroi (tablet- or plaque-bearers) would be registrars or stewards who render accounts, a matter that coincided with the Panathenaia. The theme of the pinakophoroi has nothing comparable on the north side, despite the analogies of scene existing between the two long sides. One of the three blocks was removed during mediaeval times in order to make way for a window in the Christian church. A fragment preserving the head of a skaphephoros (tray-bearer) (130) has been attributed to these blocks.
