Epigraph: A Database of Roman Inscriptions

Description: This is a CD-ROM of the inscriptions published in the Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum volume VI. The original volumes were published between 1876 and 1933 and contain almost 40,000 reports of inscriptions found in the city of Rome. In Epigraph the inscriptions are published in the form of two databases. One contains the text only and the other contains epigraphical and editorial additions, the latter database including symbols to represent the text as it appears on the monument. Features recorded include ligatures, Claudian letters, erasures, short and tall letters and reversed letters.

The search program included with the disk allows searching on all of the features listed above and also on Greek text (transliterated), cognomia and numerals. Boolean searching is possible and up to 32,000 entries can be returned, displaying one line for each inscription. The full inscription can then be displayed in another window. Search results can be saved, printed or exported to use in a Word Processing package.

Requirements: PC running Windows 3.1 or higher with at least 8 MB of RAM and a CD-ROM drive, or Apple Macintosh running System 7.0 or higher with at least 8 MB of RAM and a CD-ROM drive.
