Abbreviations in Latin Inscriptions, Elliott (1998)

A compilation of abbreviations found in Latin epigraphy and assembled from digital texts of all Latin inscriptions published in L’Année Épigraphique between 1888 and 1993.

It is not a list of abbreviations used in texts, such as “e.g.” or “v.g.”, but acronyms found in lapidary inscriptions, such as steles or gravestones.
