Modeling relationships between Ancient Document Resources

Entities relating to ancient documents: Images, Texts, Text-Bearing Objects, Descriptions
* Text-Bearing Objects are Physical Objects
* Text-Bearing Objects have material and bibliographic Descriptions
* Images depict Texts and Text-Bearing Objects
* Texts are inscribed on Text-Bearing Objects
* Texts have bibliographic and interpretive Descriptions (eg link to APIS or HGV metadata)
* Texts have Transcriptions (eg link to DDbDP transcription)
* Texts have Translations (eg link to DDbDP translation)

In situations that a Text or Text-Bearing Object is depicted by multiple images, the Text should have a structural description indicating the way each depicting image relates to it.
