Research in the field of epigraphy is continually enriched by the discovery of unpublished documents and is today experiencing a radical renewal thanks to digital technologies. A fundamental component of the ‘epigrapher’s craft’, however, is also the philological reconstruction and investigation of the figures who engaged in the collation of ancient inscription witnesses. The volume includes sixteen essays by Italian and French scholars dedicated to the examination of the manuscript and printed tradition of epigraphy, which Theodor Mommsen called the “most difficult part” of the discipline. From the treasures still hidden in numerous libraries across Europe, a picture of great documentary richness emerges, which portends enormous potential for future research.
