Ratings and Reviews

An Epigraphist ,

Targeted and useful

Although the seasoned epigraphist will already know the major abbreviations, this app provides a quick and portable reference for the more obscure abbreviations. It is also useful for students just learning to read inscriptions. This app is much more convenient than toting a book around Rome or Pompeii. And the links to Whitaker's Words is a nice little bonus!
