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.

An epigraph is any sort of text, from a single grapheme (such as marks on a pot) to a lengthy document. Epigraphy overlaps other competences such as numismatics or palaeography.
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, from objects in Category:Epigraphs on objects and from buildings, in Category:Epigraphs in architecture.
