Axon Project aims to offer a selection of Greek inscriptions, from the birth of the polis in the Archaic Age to 31 BC. The documents are provided with complete lemma and critical apparatus, information about date and place of discovery, Italian translation, commentary, and updated bibliography. This digital anthology has been selected according to a broader notion of ‘historical’ inscription, which includes those documents relevant not only for their political and institutional contents, but also for the social as well as cultural issues they display.
Specific queries can be carried out with our Search functions, browsing the entire collection and using the interactive Map.
The Project is patronised by Istituto Italiano per la Storia Antica and has an affiliation agreement with Europeana EAGLE Project.
