The Archaeological Information System AiS Mîn-Panos has been designed as a research tool for interdisciplinary research on the Archaeology and History of the Nomos Panopolites from prehistoric times to the end of Late Antiquity.

These main databases are:

OBJECTS – a database of finds from the Akhmîm district now kept in collections and museums all over the world
