L'année épigraphique

L’Année Epigraphique


The leading survey of epigraphic publications (Latin and Greek) that are relevant to the study of the Roman Empire. L'Année épigraphique was set up by René Cagnat in 1888. It was included in the Revue archéologique until the issue dated 1964, then became an autonomous publication. 

It systematically collects all the inscriptions discovered or revised each year concerning the Roman world, mainly in Latin but Greek texts from the Roman period are also included and often translated, and sorted by period. For a more detailed explanation (in French) see here.

Each volume has extensive and systematic indices.   

L’Année Épigraphique is also available via JSTOR, with a moving wall. The latest issue is 2009 which contains the harvest of 2006 (27-09-2015) .
