Iran and Italy Document Achaemenid Inscriptions

 

04 July 2004

 

 

Iranian and Italian experts are working on a digital program to enlist all inscriptions and manuscripts left from the Achaemenid dynasty.


The program aptly named Digital Achaemenid Royal Inscription Open Schema Hypertext (DARIOSH) is the brainchild of Iran’s National Museum and Italy’s L’Istituto Italiano per l’Africa e l’Oriente (ISIAO) and will be carried out at Naples University and Iranian National Archaeology Museum in Tehran.


Its design would help researchers including archaeologists, inscriptions experts and lexicologists in their online interdisciplinary studies, because the program would collect all the dispersed data on the dynasty (550-330 B.C.) from around the globe and categorize in one single place for easier access.


The programmers are pursuing three major goals: 1) compiling an updated list of the linguistic literature of languages spoken in that era, 2) making a new analysis of the Achaemenids’ texts, 3) editing and translating those texts.
