I think this might be interesting (if not directly useful) to Wikisourcians:
A digital version of the Archimedes Palimpsest was released yesterday.
For context, these images hold the only copy of some of the works of
Archimedes, and these images have been created by separating the
original Archimedes text from the text which was written over the top
of it in the 12th or 13th century.
It has been put together into a Google Book, but there is no download link.
If we want to work on this, we need to convert these images into a djvu file.
Greek Wikisource has the Proofread Page extension set up and in
working order, with a few pages of the Bible in place.
They have written a nice document describing their filename
conventions, which is necessary to understand in order to dig around
in their image bank, and they already have TEI transcription files for
most of the pages I have seen.

Great. Images of 2000 year old writing being covered by a new copyright! :/
It appears as if researcher contributions can be licensed differently:
