From Sarullo et al. 2017:

The ILA project consists in the digital edition of the archaic Latin inscriptions (7th – 5th century B.C.) according to the EpiDoc Guidelines. The edition is the result of an autoptical examination of the epigraphic documents and of the text-bearing objects, together with the analysis of previous studies. In the particular case of the Forum inscription, this led to new discoveries and confirmed old hypotheses. Each text will be presented in an epigraphic chart, enriched by photos and illustrations.

Description as of November 2007:

Iscrizioni Latine ArcaicheDigital Corpus of Archaic Latin Inscriptions. With funding of the IULM University in Milan, Giovanna Rocca, together with a small team of scholars, has launched a two-year project that aims to realize a digital corpus of all the archaic Latin inscriptions (VII-V century BC) recovered up to now. This corpus will cover a period that has not been included in EDR yet.

For each text, that will be encoded using EpiDoc, descriptive data together with linguistic and epigraphical commentaries, bibliographical references, photographs and apographs will be provided. The work will also include indices, concordance, search tools and supporting materials.
