News from EAGLE, The Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy

EAGLE Search online
The EAGLE portal is now live and you can search all partner databases and contributed contents in one search, including currently more than one million items. You can use:
In the advanced search you can choose which fields to search, and you will be then able to further filter your results based on the contents of the EAGLE Controlled Vocabularies.

Results are displayed divided by entity type: Artefacts, Texts and Images. You might wish to see only items for which the databases have a text or only images related to your search.

Multiple instances of the same inscription are listed in the result view as tabs.

The EAGLE portal is based on a content aggregator with the primary function to collect data for Europeana, therefore it does not have all the partners’ information. Please click on the Original Source button to see each inscription on the content provider’s website with the full and up to date metadata.

You can download the relevant EpiDoc file for each text where available, from the Export button.
For further information, please refer to the user manual. In this document you will also find all users functions described.

Feedback is always very welcome, please write to

If you would like to contribute with photos, translations or transcriptions of inscriptions, please contact EAGLE at
