Collections of Epigraphic Squeezes: A New Digital ResourcePDF
This paper presents E-Stampages, a new digital tool for Greek Epigraphy. It publishes online a relevant number of squeezes from the collections of the Laboratory Histoire et Sources des Mondes Antiques (HiSoMA) of Lyon, the École française d’Athènes and the Laboratory of Greek Epigraphy of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. It stands out among similar resources for the accurate organisation of metadata, that is based upon ‘holistic’ concept of squeeze, and the 3D reconstruction. The paper describes the collaboration between the E-Stampages project, coordinated by Michèle Brunet, and the Venice Squeeze Project, coordinated by Claudia Antonetti. It highlights the shared methodologies and aims as well as the peculiarities of each of them.
