Abstract: The paper discusses a small ontology to describe the features of the execution techniques of inscriptions, based on a recent contribution discussing the classification methodologies. The modeling is done on the basis of existing recent attempts to model epigraphic documents and not on a general evaluation of existing ontologies. The ontology described is used in parallel to enrich and further structure the EAGLE Vocabularies for Execution Technique, which uses SKOS, with possibly immediate impact on the many projects using the concepts contained there.
