Trismegistos People is not yet a prosopography, but is exploring ways towards it with these partners:
  1. The Center for the Tebtunis Papyri (CTP) is working on a Tebtunis prosopography starting from Trismegistos People records.
  2. TM People is a partner in Standards for Networking Ancient Prosopographies (SNAP), a project exploring how to link prosopographies in a digital environment.
This database of people mentioned in Trismegistos texts has been compiled by the KU Leuven Projects:
  1. Creating Identities in Graeco-Roman Egypt [CIGRE] (OT K.U.Leuven)
  2. Egyptian Names from the Late Pharaonic until the Roman Period (FWO project)
  3. An interdisciplinary database of proper names in late pharaonic, Graeco-Roman and Byzantine Egypt (Hercules Foundation)
  4. Names and Identities in Christian Egypt (OT Fellowship)
  5. Towards a Universal Facebook of the Ancient World (FWO research grant)
Continuing the work done by earlier projects:
  1. Prosopographia Ptolemaica [ProsPtol] (K.U.Leuven)
  2. Multilingualism and Multiculturalism in Graeco-Roman Egypt [MaMiGRE] (Universität zu Köln, Germany)
