This release brings to fruition major elements of a programme of IT development, supported by the Mellon Foundation, designed to create enhanced synergies between AIO and other relevant online resources (project TIGLIO). All translations are now encoded in Epidoc via the Leiden+ syntax. Links to online images have been installed, starting with the OhioLink and Aleshire Center websites (e.g. 9 May 2016: IG II), as well as links to the Pleiades mapping database (for places, e.g. 3 1, 447 IG I). We have also begun installing links to the LGPN database (for persons, e.g. 3 259 IG II, activated initially via the "Places On" button), and have for the first time included data about present locations of the inscriptions, in addition to findspots and original locations. In response to feedback from our recent survey, a source reference lookup has been introduced on the Home Page, and it is now possible to browse inscriptions not only by source reference, but by present location, publication date on AIO, monument type and inscription type. Internal links have been enhanced and links from AIO Papers to translations have been installed. The following 110 new translations have been added: decree providing for support of orphans of men killed under the oligarchy (of 411 BC?), 3 1, 293 OR 178; the remaining decrees and fragments datable to 300/299-230/29 BC, IG II- 3 1, 1030 1134; decrees honouring the girls who worked the wool for Athena's peplos, SEG 53.143 and two others; a dedication commemorating a young girl's service on the acropolis as arrephoros, IG II; and one naming a priest (of Asklepios?), 2 3488 IG II.
