CEG online: Presentation of the Project and State of the Work

Alessia Gonfloni    Università degli Studi di Roma 2 Tor Vergata    



The project consists of a textual and bibliographical update of Peter Allan Hansen’s Carmina Epigraphica Graeca. The research is divided into two parts: a first section is dedicated to the bibliographical update of inscriptions already published by Hansen. There are many sections that differ as for lemmi, textual contributions, epigraphical, historical or archaeological information. In the second section of our research, indeed, we will catalogue the new inscriptions with archaeological, literary, historical, epigraphical, metrical and cultural data in order to provide a right interpretation of the epigraphy without leaving anything out. The inscriptions have been studied with in-depth analyses, drawings and considerations of an epigraphic nature. We have used excavation materials and contexts to provide a complete point of view of the main archaeological features. The cards are correlated with metrical and linguistic analyses, translations into Italian and other languages (if they are present), as well as all the main aspects of the epigraphical support. Finally, there is a discussion about the chronology of the epigraph and a detailed commentary that traces in many cases the history of the inscription’s study and analyses the main issues.
