EAGLE Vocabulary - Decoration

"Terms in this vocabulary refer to any decoration surrounding an inscription. Hederae, crosses, and chi-rho monograms are probably among the most frequent decorations, but there are a number of classifiable features of decoration which support and are indeed vital in some cases, to the understanding of the inscribed text. Many artistic classification could be suggested, but for the purposes of epi- graphic research we offer a flat list of features which can be found surrounding an inscription."
