The research project’s task is the recording and editing of Latin and bilingual (Latin-Greek) inscriptions of the Imperium Romanum within a complex database, and the user-friendly presentation of these on the Internet. The text of each epigraphic document is checked and presented with metadata and, where possible, photographs to contribute to the 1.4 million metadata relevant to research contained within the databases.

The project contributes the Open Data Repository EDH API as well as an SPARQL endpoint.
