Approximately 49'000 epigraphical files of inscriptions are available (4'500 toponyms) as well as 14'000 photographs. All regions in the program of the Thesaurus are now covered. New editions will be issued every two years and will contain newly discovered inscriptions as well as additions and edtions of previous inscriptions.
