Athena Review  Vol.1, no.2

The Roman Inscriptions of Britain (RIB): Index by site

Writings on altars, tombstones, milestones, and other dedication monuments including Legionary distance slabs from Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine Wall, together provide a wealth of historic sources on Roman Britain. These texts have been compiled into a two-volume work entitled The Roman Inscriptions of Britain (abbreviated RIB), edited by R.G. Collingwood and R.P. Wright (1965, Oxford, Clarendon Press). Volume 1 lists inscriptions on stone, and Volume 2 contains writings on other materials.  Each inscription is individually numbered and grouped by site. Thus, RIB-191 through -212 includes all catalogued inscriptions from Colchester. These listings are widely used by archaeologists, historians, and museums throughout Britain where many of the inscriptions may be seen.

The following inscriptions, listed by site with both modern and Roman place names, have been described or cited in Athena Review.  Countries are abbreviated as ENG (England); WAL (Wales); and SCO (Scotland). Brief descriptions of the monuments are included along with dates, when known. At the end are references to AR Vol.1, numbers 1 and 2, with pages as well as figure numbers if available. Links to several images of RIB inscriptions are also provided.
