Inscriptiones Graecae et Latinae Bruttiorum (BILG)
Status: in progress (October 2014)
The project is realized by the Departments of University Mediterranea of Reggio Calabria and University Magna Graecia of Catanzaro, with a grant from Regione Calabria, and aims to create and to publish a digital corpus of legal inscriptions found in Calabria.
The project involves the digitization of some of the most important inscriptions, unpublished or little known and never digitized. The project aims to provide for each text all relevant metadata information, distinguishing for each an archaeological (including geographical information in the form of links to the Pleiades Project), epigraphic and a legal profile.
For each inscription, the following information is provided:
- Titulus: general information
- Locus: archaeological information
- Inscriptio: epigraphic information
- Textus: the text of the inscription, with information on the legal aspects involved
Each inscription entry has an extensive bibliography. Each inscription is encoded using lo standard EpiDoc / XML Unicode, and transformations are applied using XSL stylesheets to render full text editions. Whenever possible, photos and/or apographs will be included.
Coordinators of the project are Daria Spampinato, computer scientist technology expert at CNR, and Stefania Romeo researcher of Roman Law at University Mediterranea of Reggio Calabria. The texts will be released under a Creative Commons license.
