CEIPAC database updated!!! New interface and more... 22/12/2016

– We are just a record of having 42000 epigraphic objects in the BBDD.

– Users can observe in the Geographic Navigator the position of all Objects, Tituli Picti and Seals contained in the BBDD.

– At last we have developed the interface for the introduction and visualization of graphites in the BBDD, thanks to Dr. Pablo Ozcáriz, Dr. Alessandro Mosca, Dr. Guillem Rull, and Mr. Javier Heredero and Jordi Pérez González. Already more than 1000 records with the new system!


The CEIPAC database is an open project. Although the application is in an advanced state, its development is continuous and is subject to constant changes to maximize its benefits in favor of the user.

Initial efforts focus on the epigraphy of Hispanic amphoras (Dr. 20 and especially from Tarragona). Throughout these years the epigraphy of other anphoric types is being imported.
The database counts today with an exact volume of 41999 epigraphic objects. Much of this data has been continuously modified in recent years, until an acceptable model for epigraphic emptying has been achieved. For this reason, while we are adding new data, we also are reviewing the old information emptied.

The degree of reliability of the information of an epigraphic object is given by the indicators of the state of emptying that appear next to each bibliographical reference. These indicators are useful to know the quality of the data in an epigraphic record. Publications marked with a [C] have optimum void control and are considered closed. Publications marked with an [R] are considered under review and their data may have errors. Other useful indicators are: [P] partially emptied, [N] not emptied, [V] emptied, [F] not checked, [Y] to empty.


In addition the CEIPAC database has been linked to the “Roman Amphorae” database of the University of Southampton, developed by Simon Keay and David Williams. It is reached from the data of the typology anphoric.
