I.Sicily is a project digitizing Sicilian ancient inscriptions on stone in TEI-XML/EpiDoc. The corpus includes inscriptions in different ancient languages, including Greek, Latin, Phoenician/Punic, Oscan, Hebrew, and Sikel, spanning from the 7th century BC to the 5th century AD and later.

The project is based at the Faculty of Classics of the University of Oxford. Its main curator is Jonathan Prag (University of Oxford, UK), with the support of Angela Maria Manenti (Museo Archeologico Regionale Paolo Orsi of Syracuse, Italy).

The corpus is based on an existing dataset including over 2300 inscriptions, that are being encoded digitally with the EpiDoc schema. In the future, this initial dataset is to be further expanded. The first planned expansion will be a digitisation of inscriptions held in the Museo Archeologico Regionale Paolo Orsi in Syracuse, Italy.
