We had a bit of a discussion on the call today around language tags for ancient languages. I found this page as a possible resource: Symbol Codes | Language Tags (psu.edu)<https://sites.psu.edu/symbolcodes/web/langtag/#langcode> It includes a brief section on some representative ancient languages. It also links to some larger code list, although those links appear to be broken.

Another quick reference location is Template:Lang - Wikipedia<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Lang#Private-use_language_tags>, which mentions Private use language tags for many ancient languages such an Koine Greek.

There's also a huge spec documents on the IETF website BCP 47 - Tags for Identifying Languages (ietf.org)<https://tools.ietf.org/search/bcp47>

Thought I would mention these resources in case anyone want to delve into them.
