The EAGLE initiative -- an international federation of epigraphic databases -- is the brainchild of Professor Silvio Paniera (Rome), under the Patronage of AIEGL (Association Internationale d'Epigraphie Grecque et Latine). It's long-term goal is the digitization and unified search of all published insciptions in Greek and Latin.

EAGLE is formed of a federation of three major epigraphic projects: the Epigraphische Datenbank Heidelberg (EDH), the Epigraphic Database Roma (EDR), the Epigraphic Database Bari (EDB) and Hispania Epigraphica (HE), which currently take responsibility for various thematic and geographic subsets of the inscriptions. All of these databases conform to the minimum requirements of the EAGLE system, although EDH in particular has many more fields of metadata in addition.
