EAGLE is a Best Practice Network, co-funded by the European Commission, that brings together the most prominent European institutions and archives in the field of Classical Latin and Greek epigraphy, in order to provide Europeana with a comprehensive collection of unique historical sources which constitute a veritable pillar of European culture.
