Epigraphical (Squeeze) Collections

The Institute houses a unique collection of paper squeezes of inscriptions (particularly milestones) from all over Turkey. This collection was assembled largely by David French and in many cases the original stone inscriptions are lost or destroyed so that the squeezes form the only surviving evidence. The inscriptions are mainly in Greek. An electronic catalogue accompanies the squeezes.
