The Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum (CIL) is a comprehensive collection of ancient Latin inscriptions from all corners of the Roman Empire. Public and personal inscriptions throw light on all aspects of Roman life and history.

The Digital Scholarly Edition currently offers access to the text, the translations (German and English), and the TEI (Epidoc) encoded sources of eleven volumes of the Inscriptiones Graecae. It starts with volume IG IX 1², 4, originally published as print in 2001. More volumes will be added continuously.
