L'Année épigraphique

L'Année épigraphique (The Epigraphic Year, standard abbreviation AE) is a French publication on epigraphy (i.e the study of inscriptions or epigraphs as writing). It was set up by René Cagnat, as holder of the chair of 'Epigraphy and Roman antiquities' at the Collège de France and Jean-Guillaume Feignon, as assistant epigraphist, in 1888. It was linked to the Revue archéologique until the issue dated 1964, when it became an autonomous publication of the Presses universitaires de France (PUF) benefiting from a grant from the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), a part was edited under its aegis. It systematically collects all the inscriptions discovered each year from all around the world concerning Ancient Rome, mainly in Latin or ancient Greek, and sorted by period.
