Strange problem with TLG on Mix'n'match

Epìdosis (talkcontribs)

Hi again! I've noticed two problems in TLG author ID (P3576) on Mix'n'match (2377):

  • the entry for 0240 has the name "Hermogenes" instead of "Hermolochus" (same problem in related entry of Perseus Catalog])
  • the entry for 0592, which should have had the name "Hermogenes", is absent in the actual TLG catalog.

Should TLG catalog maybe be scraped again in order to find other missing entries? TLG has 2514 author entries and the actual catalog has only 1186! Thank you!!!

Another strange case of completely wrong names:

  • the entry for 0026 has the name "Aenigmata Merovingicae aetatis" instead of "Aeschines" (same problem in the related entry of Perseus Catalog)

Any update? Thank you very much!

So, the two problems are still present:

  • some entries in the actual catalog 2377 are misleading --> the catalog in my opinion should be deactivated
  • the catalog has 1186 entries, while TLG has 2562 --> TLG is paywalled, so the catalog cannot be scraped at this URL; however, I can copy-paste the entire list and send it to you by e-mail, if this can be useful in order to create a new catalog - let me know if it is possible.

Thank you very much as always!
