This website was created as part of the research project Official Inscriptions of the Middle East in Antiquity (OIMEA), whose funding is provided by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (through the establishment of the Alexander von Humboldt Chair for Ancient History of the Near and Middle East [http://www.ag.geschichte.uni-muenchen.de/lehrstuehle/ls_radner/index.html]) and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Historisches Seminar - Abteilung Alte Geschichte). The OIMEA Project is intended to be a long-term endeavor since there is much work to do and finish before we have reached our primary objects. Please be patient with us as we expand, improve, and refine our content.
