Welcome to the homepage of the Corpus of Ptolemaic Inscriptions (CPI) project, which aims to create a Corpus of up-to-date editions of the Greek, bilingual and trilingual inscriptions on stone from Ptolemaic Egypt (323-30 BCE), numbering around 650 items, based on material collected and annotated by the late Peter Fraser FBA (1918-2007). The first volume of the Corpus, Alexandria and The Delta (Nos. 1-206), was published by OUP in April 2021. A companion volume of essays exploring different aspects of the epigraphy of Ptolemaic Egypt, The Epigraphy of Ptolemaic Egypt, was published by OUP in October 2020.
The CPI project has been funded by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, with further support from the Leverhulme Trust and the John Fell Fund, and is based at the Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents in Oxford.
