The Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, IRT, will be a digital reprint of the 1952 volume published by the British School at Rome, incorporating addenda and corrigenda, and a supplementary article from PBSR (1954). It will contain some 1000 inscriptions. IRT is being prepared for publication at the Centre for Computing in the Humanities at King's College, London as part of the JISC and NEH-funded Concordia project.

IRT = Joyce M. Reynolds & J. B. Ward-Perkins, Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, first ed. 1952.

Enhanced electronic reissue, 2009.

The first publication of Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, which appeared in 1952, has long been out of print. Produced in post-war conditions, it only included illustrations of a few inscriptions, although very many of them had been photographed; and it only offered limited geographic information.

The purposes of this enhanced reissue are, therefore, to make the original material available again, and to provide the full photographic record, together with geographical data linking the inscriptions to maps and gazetteers, and so to other resources. Electronic publication makes this possible, and also allows us to offer greater functionality, such as free text searches. We have included the material from the supplement which contained further texts, numbered in the same sequence (973-996): 'Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania: a supplement', published in PBSR 23 (1955), 124-147, and we have incorporated corrections and emendations made in that article; but we have not attempted to alter or emend any item otherwise.

For the epigraphic editions, IRT employs the same formats, software and tooling as IAph2007 and IRCyr, with the addition of Atom feeds containing geographical information in the form of links to the Pleiades Project. The texts will be released under a Creative Commons license, as were the previous publications. IRT2009 was published in September 2009.
