OhioLINK is pleased to announce the addition of Greek and Latin “Squeezes” to the DMC Social Sciences Database.
“Squeezes” are accurate paper impressions of inscriptions. The squeezes available through the Digital Media Center are from The Center for Epigraphical and Palaeographical Studies at The Ohio State University. The Center is the only comprehensive research facility for the study of Greek and Latin inscriptions and manuscripts in the United States. Its purpose is to foster the study of inscriptions and manuscripts and promote research opportunities for those interested in these primary sources of information for the ancient and mediaeval world.
Currently, there are about 100 images, but the collection will grow into the 1000's. The Squeezes can be searched, and ”zoomed’ to see the greatest detail. The collection is available to the world at large.
