Epigraphy and Informatics

Show Summary Details


This brief chapter stresses the difference between the revolutionary possibilities of applying Information Technology to the Greek and Roman epigraphic record and its limited effects to date. It traces the reasons partly to scholarly attitudes, partly to the lack of a list of prioritised objectives, partly to divergences in the very concepts of ‘inscription’ and of ‘data-base’ and partly to a lack of unity and collaboration.

Keywords: Information Technology; data-base; inscription; Greek epigraphic record; Roman epigraphic record
