The Epigraphic Database Heidelberg contains the texts of Latin and bilingual (i.e. Latin-Greek) inscriptions of the Roman Empire. The epigraphic monuments are collected and kept up to date on the basis of modern research. With the help of search functions specific queries can be carried out - e.g. a search for words in inscriptions and / or particular descriptive data. The search results are often displayed together with photos and drawings.
The geographic focus is provided by the provinces of the Roman Empire. The total number of records rises continuously.
The Research Project is made up of three constituent databases
A fourth constituent database for the collection of geographic coordinates is at present under construction.
EDH is a partner project of EAGLE (Electronic Archive of Greek and Latin Epigraphy) and a project partner of EAGLE (Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy), member of staff Pietro Liuzzo, and PELAGIOS.
