Title: Images and Text on the Walls of Herculaneum: Designing the Ancient Graffiti Project

Abstract: Among the many handwritten texts inscribed in the first century on the walls of Pompeii and Herculaneum, there sometimes appear also hand-sketched drawings, or figural graffiti. These figural graffiti have involved additional challenges as we create curated, digital editions of ancient graffiti for the Epigraphic Database Roma and as we design a way to search for and retrieve such drawings via the Ancient Graffiti Project search engine. In this article, we discuss the challenges we face and some of the strategies we have developed in response, with a particular focus on the material from Herculaneum.

Primary URL Description: This volume has collected contributions from several ongoing digital projects raising questions and proposing solutions regarding encoding inscriptions – from the Archaic period to the Middle Ages and beyond, even in languages other than Greek and Latin – which do not fall within those labelled as standard.
