The Association Internationale d’Épigraphie Grecque et Latine, founded in 1972 in Munich and constituted in 1977 in Constantza, is the international organisation that promotes the study of inscriptions in the Classical World. Its main purpose is to promote communication and co-operation among students and scholars of epigraphy throughout the world. Every five years it sponsors the International Epigraphic Congress and it acts as patron to several other academic meetings and conferences. It offers prizes for outstanding work by younger scholars and provides financial support for specialised training in the subject.
