Pleiades place pages now provide more summary information for associated names.

Where previously the listing of geographic names found on an individual place page only provided the name-string itself, with a link to the full page for the name, these listings now provide additional information derived from the underlying data. When available, the listings include the attested form of the name, a transliteration, the date range associated with the name, and an indication of the certainty with which the name is associated with the place ("less certain" associations are postfixed with a question mark; "uncertain" associations earn two question marks).

Here are some examples. Comments welcome!
