The InscriptiFact Project is a database designed to allow access via the Internet to high-resolution images of ancient inscriptions from the Near Eastern and Mediterranean worlds. It is intended to benefit students, philologists, archaeologists, linguists, and other scholars interested in these areas of study as well as serving as an educational resource for the general public. The InscriptiFact Internet Database Prototype is now available as a platform independent application and database with a test set of 840 images. An additional 5000 images will be available by the end of 2003, with funding for 20,000 images by 2006.
