English: Epigraphy is the study of inscriptions or epigraphs as writing; it is the science of identifying graphemes, clarifying their meanings, classifying their uses according to dates and cultural contexts, and drawing conclusions about the writing and the writers. Specifically excluded from epigraphy are the historical significance of an epigraph as a document and the artistic value of a literary composition. This category is a container category for images of epigraphs, whether in literature or monuments, or categories related to the study of epigraphy. Images directly related to the science itself should be the only files directly placed here. Images of epigraphs from books go in Category:Epigraphs in literature, and from buildings, in Category:Epigraphs in architecture.
