It also includes all the onomastic records in the pre-Roman languages of that area. This paper provides a general overview of the project with some examples of the various types of files used in it. It also mentions future developments of the electronic corpus and directions of research.

Key words: epigraphy, inscriptions, pre-Roman languages, onomastics, databases
