Squeeze Digitization Grant Awarded to IAS

At the beginning of April 2020, the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, announced the award of a three-year, $350,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This grant will enable the Krateros Project to complete its work to digitize and publish online the 30,000-item IAS squeeze collection. This collection was begun by Benjamin Dean Merrit in the 1930s and comprises squeezes of Greek and Latin inscriptions dating from ca. 400 BCE to ca. 400 CE. The Krateros project is directed by Angelos Chaniotis and managed by Aaron Hershkowitz.
