Ubi Erat Lupa

[First posted 19 April 2010. Updated 3 February 2013]

Ubi Erat Lupa
Current amount of data: 20927 monuments and 31643 pictures / Last update: 2013/02/03, 15:12. UBI ERAT LUPA is a partner project of EAGLE (Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy) and is being maintained by 'CHC - Research Group for Archaeometry and Cultural Heritage Computing' and hosted by ITS at the University of Salzburg.
Die Bilddatenbank www.ubi-erat-lupa.org (Kurzbezeichnung lupa) ist den antiken Steindenkmälern (Rundplastiken, Reliefs, Inschriften, Architekturstücken etc.) gewidmet, weil sie die wichtigsten Informationsträger zu Gesellschaft, Kultur und Kunst der Antike sind.

lupa ist ein ausschließlich ideelles Projekt und dient der Information von Wissenschaftlern und Freunden der Antike in Heimatforschung, Schule und Tourismus. Sie reicht bis in die Zeit des Justinian (ca. 500 n. Chr.) und erfasst nach Möglichkeit auch prähistorische Steindenkmäler. Weil sich lupa von Wien aus konzentrisch entwickelt hat, überwiegen zur Zeit die römerzeitlichen Denkmäler in Mittel- und Südosteuropa.

lupa ist in jeder Richtung zur Erweiterung offen.
The picture database www.ubi-erat-lupa.org (short form lupa) contains stone monuments (sculptures, reliefs, inscriptions, architectural pieces etc.).

lupa is a non-commercial project dedicated to informing scientists and interested laypersons. The project’s scope is from prehistoric stone monuments to around the time of Justinian (500 AD). Due to its inception in Vienna, most project data at the moment is from the mid- and south-eastern european region.

lupa is open to expansion in any direction."

Extension of LVPA by third party
The title Ubi Erat Lupa indicates that there is only one predetermined geographical boundary: the expansion and the spheres of influence of the Roman empire. To cope with the enourmous material available it is a must for us to cooperate with other specialists and institutions.
Possible models of cooperation range from mutual providing texts and pictures to real online collaboration, where associates will gain direct access to the LVPA databases.
Authors and institutions are registered in every data record and can be contacted directly from the web application.
