Aristarchos is a freeware program that allows the user to search for abbreviations commonly used for periodicals, series and monographs in archaeology.
I started Aristarchos because I found so many incomprehensible abbreviations
in archaeological articles or essays I have read. While there are
lists published in every issue of Archäologische Bibliographie and
the Année Philologique, these lists are incomplete and sometimes contradictory.
Lists published in Année Philologique show almost only the abbreviations
used in that issue; the lists of the Archäologishe Bibliographie,
even though complete, sometimes conflict with those used in the Dyabola
or in the issues of the Jahrbuch des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts.
In addition, searching through these lists is time-consuming and distracting.

Prof. Dr. Alicia M. Canto, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain:
June, 3rd: Aristarchos ver.1.01 is online. A little bug for
Mozilla/Netscape users has been fixed and a pair of periodicals (out of the
lists of DAI and AnPhil) have been added to the database (the abbreviations have
been included arbitrarily in the EAA field).
Aristarchos is part of the ArcheoLinks project
