The goal of the U.S. Epigraphy Project is to gather and distribute information about ancient (mainly but not only) Greek and Latin inscriptions preserved in the United States of America.

2,300 inscriptions (720 Greek, 1,575 Latin) were registered by the Project by the middle of 1997 and are listed in Greek and Latin Inscriptions in the USA. A Checklist, by J. Bodel and S. Tracy (Rome and New York, 1997). This site produces in a digital format the information from the book, updated and revised, as well as new collections and inscriptions. Photographs and additional information are provided where available.

Each inscription catalogued by the U.S. Epigraphy Project is assigned a U.S. Epigraphy number based upon its current location in the United States, by which it is uniquely identified. The inscriptions can be browsed by publication, by collection, or, for the inscriptions with photographs, through keyword searches.
