Epigraphic record taken from notebook 23 by General Creuly


This drawing by Casimir Creuly, a member of the Commission de Topographie des Gaules (CTG), shows a Gallo-Roman honorific monument found in Lyon. Creuly produced 23 notebooks of his work between 1855 and his death in 1879, for his personal publications and for his work for the CTG. The notebooks contain pencil drawings of inscriptions throughout Gaul. His drawings stand out for the detail of the copies, his respect for the shape of the letters, and the systematic inclusion of the dimensions of letters, margins, line spacing and the entire monument.

CIL, XIII, 1670
