The aim of this paper is to retrace the history of Greek epigraphy through an examination of the research that fostered its birth and development. The division into paragraphs reflects an organization of the study on a chronological basis. Starting with the fifteenth-century interest in ancient epigraphy, the major collections of Greek epigraphs will be presented until the nineteenth century, when the Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum was published. The main works and the names of the scholars associated with them, cornerstones of the discipline, will be mentioned throughout the discussion
