AIEGL Prizes in Greek and Latin Epigraphy (Deadline: September 30, 2016)

#1: Two AIEGL prizes (to be advertised every five years), one of which will be awarded for a work in the field of Greek epigraphy, the other for a work in the field of Latin epigraphy, consist of 2.500 Euro each and are reserved to works almost ready for publication but not published yet. The works may consist in a corpus of inscriptions or in a study essentially concerned with epigraphic material; the prizes are intended to support young researchers and therefore authors must be under age of 40 when they submit their works.
