"The ancient scholia are the earliest recorded scholarship on ancient Greek authors. They were notes on words and passages that caused trouble for later readers, and included everything from simple explanation of odd vocabulary, to grammar notes or more extended notes explaining history and customs. While originally kept in separate books, most come to us as notes written in the margins surrounding the main text (see Venetus A for an example). Modern students of classical languages are still familiar with the practice of scholia. Many of our textbooks follow a very similar pattern, and not just for Ancient Greek and Latin.This wiki is intended as a way for people to share their own scholia on classical works. I have written some software extending the functionality of the wiki with markup to make word and phrase annotation easy and natural."
