Pleiades API

Pleiades is a community-built geographical dictionary and map of ancient places. An outgrowth of the Classical Atlas Project and the Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World, it associates names and locations in time and provides structured information about these entities. Pleiades also serves as a vocabulary for talking about the geography of the ancient world within Linked Data sets. Pleiades provides a RESTful API that enables users to retrieve lists of places, locations, and names as well as data about individual ancient places.
