ATLA (American Theological Library Association)
While specifically a religion database, ATLA contains many ancient studies related topics, especially related to biblical texts and other ancient religions.
Even though very broad this can be a wonderful tool especially as a reverse citation search engine [search for an article and select the link "Cited by" to see who has cited that article since its publication].
