Series 2: Roman capital inscriptions, 1991-2007


  • Staff Only

Scope and Contents note

This series contains 164 original rubbings from 143 inscriptional stones. Each entry includes a box and folder number, a serial number, location of the original stone, the date, and in parentheses the style of capital letters used. Rubbings of a few 19th- & 20th-century inscriptions are also included. Items marked with an asterisk have a corresponding photographic print in Series 3. Items with decimal numbers are either photocopies or duplicate rubbings in other colors. Not included in the inventory, but written on each item, is a chronological identification number that indicates the year and order in which GB made the rubbing; slides in Series 3 are keyed to these latter numbers.
