Beischriften on Wall and Floor Decoration in the Greek and Roman World

Status: an on-going personal project (description as of November 2007)

Francisca Feraudi-Gruénais maintains in EpiDoc format a reference collection of primary texts to support her research into Beischriften (captions, legends and other texts associated with artistic works). These are generally not "freestanding" inscriptions; rather, they comment in some way upon figural decoration. Her collection includes dipinti (painted texts) on frescoes and Greek, Roman and Etruscan wall paintings, as well as mosaic inscriptions. Rather than simply using word-processing files to collect and maintain this information, F. decided to mark them up in XML so that they might eventually be of use to others.
