Visualizing Statues in the Late Antique Roman Forum - Inscription Database

Diane Favro (principal investigator). Los Angeles: UCLA, ca. 2011. "This website addresses the material evidence concerning the statues displayed during the fourth and fifth centuries CE in the open areas of the Roman Forum as documented by inscriptions. The navigable reconstruction of the Forum represents statues within their urban context so as to indicate the space in which civic rituals occurred. The visualization relies upon archeological evidence that precisely attests to the original display spots of many statues; carefully considered hypotheses point toward plausible locations of the other artworks."

IOSPE - Ancient Inscriptions of the Northern Black Sea

Directed by Askold Ivantchik and Irene Polinskaya. London: King's College London, 2011. "The aims of the project include a new study of all Ancient Greek and Latin inscriptions originating from the Northern Coast of the Black Sea; and publication of Russian and English critical editions of the inscriptions in print and digital formats. [...] The new conception of the IOSPE corpus consists in capturing in its entirety the ancient epigraphic production of the northern Pontic region – that is, not only inscriptions made on stone (lapidary inscriptions), but also on other media and fabrics, such as ceramics, metal, and bone. [...] The first stage of the project involves publication of Lapidary Inscriptions. There will be about 5,000 lapidary texts published in IOSPE, about three times as many as in the original corpus."

IRT - The Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania

By J. M. Reynolds and J. B. Ward-Perkins, enhanced electronic reissue by Gabriel Bodard and Charlotte Roueché. 2009; ISBN 978-1-897747-23-0. "The first publication of Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, which appeared in 1952, has long been out of print. Produced in post-war conditions, it only included illustrations of a few inscriptions, although very many of them had been photographed; and it only offered limited geographic information.
The purposes of this enhanced reissue are, therefore, to make the original material available again, and to provide the full photographic record, together with geographical data linking the inscriptions to maps and gazetteers, and so to other resources. Electronic publication makes this possible, and also allows us to offer greater functionality, such as free text searches. We have included the material from the supplement which contained further texts, numbered in the same sequence (973-996): 'Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania: a supplement', published in PBSR 23 (1955), 124-147, and we have incorporated corrections and emendations made in that article; but we have not attempted to alter or emend any item otherwise.
The indices of this edition are generated from the texts themselves. This means that in some cases they will diverge from those in the original edition, usually being fuller: but the material in three texts not included in that edition (261, 262 and 855) and the Neo-Punic personal names do not appear in these indices."

RINAP – The Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period

Dir. by Grant Frame. Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania, 2011-. "These Neo-Assyrian royal inscriptions (744–609 BC) represent only a small, but important part of the vast Neo-Assyrian text corpus. They are written in the Standard Babylonian dialect of Akkadian and provide valuable insight into royal exploits, both on the battlefield and at home, royal ideology, and Assyrian religion. Most of our understanding of the political history of Assyria, and to some extent of Babylonia, comes from these sources. Because this large corpus of texts has not previously been published in one place, the RINAP Project will provide up-to-date editions (with English translations) of Assyrian royal inscriptions from the reign of Tiglath-pileser III (744–727 BC) to the reign of Aššur-uballiṭ II (611–609 BC) in seven print volumes and online, in a fully lemmatized and indexed format."

Ogham in 3D

Nora White (Pricipal Investigator). Dublin: Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, 2015. "Ogham stones are among Ireland's most remarkable national treasures. These perpendicular cut stones bear inscriptions in the uniquely Irish Ogham alphabet, using a system of notches and horizontal or diagonal lines/scores to represent the sounds of an early form of the Irish language. The stones are inscribed with the names of prominent people and sometimes tribal affiliation or geographical areas. These inscriptions constitute the earliest recorded form of Irish and, as our earliest written records dating back at least as far as the 5th century AD, are a significant resource for historians, as well as linguists and archaeologists. [...] The ultimate aim of the Ogham in 3D project is to laser-scan as many as possible of the approximately four hundred surviving Ogham stones and to make these 3D models freely available on the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies website as part of a multi-disciplinary archive of Ogham stones."
