D-scribes: Digital Paleography of Greek and Coptic papyri

D-scribes project aims to develop computerized approaches adapted to Greek and Coptic papyri. Its goal is to be able to find joins between fragments, identify writers or handwriting styles and classify handwriting scripts according to similarities. It actively works on federating actors in Digital Paleography.
