Keywords:EpiDoc, EFES, Digital Epigraphy
The paper presents the corpus of the Inscriptions of Georgia, a result of a PhD research project at the Ilia State University, Tbilisi, Georgia. The database, built using the EpiDoc Front-End Services (EFES) platform, combines the EpiDoc editions of hundreds of inscriptions unearthed in Georgia, and published in print during the 18th-20th centuries. The paper outlines the main issues addressed during the creation of the database and the encoding of the inscriptions. It illustrates the core features of the corpus, with an emphasis on the advantages of the digital edition of the epigraphic monuments with the TEI-EpiDoc standard and the EFES platform.
