Online version of the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TLL), a comprehensive, ongoing scholarly dictionary of ancient Latin from the earliest times through AD 600. TLL is based on an archive of about 10 million slips, which takes account of all surviving texts. These slips are supplemented by modern text databanks. Together they make it possible for the user to follow the development of the meaning and usage of each word contained in the Thesaurus.
