Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum (CIL) is a large corpus of Latin inscriptions. The Wikipedia page contains some links, but none of the tools linked there seem to allow me to make a text search. For example, I might want to search for all inscriptions containing the word senatus spelled out in full or those containing the name Agrippa. Is there a way to do this? An advanced search tool is not necessary; it would be enough to have a sufficiently large chunk of the corpus in searchable form. I feel that I must be missing something obvious, but I couldn't figure this out.

    Perhaps db.edcs.eu/epigr/epi.php?s_sprache=en (publication: CIL)? – Alex B. Aug 14 '17 at 4:20
  • @AlexB. That looks very promising after a quick trial! Can you post it as an answer? – Joonas Ilmavirta Aug 14 '17 at 12:21
  • Did you just create two tags for that? Hahaha – Rafael Aug 14 '17 at 12:53

    @Rafael I did, and I synonymized them immediately. I thought it would make future use easier. We haven't had many inscription questions yet, but I hope there will be more. – Joonas Ilmavirta Aug 14 '17 at 14:06

    @Joonas Ilmavirta I don't believe that it's possible to search yet, but digitization seems to be under development. This might help in assessing the situation: arachne.uni-koeln.de/drupal/?q=en/node/291 – Tom Cotton Aug 16 '17 at 16:58

Hathi Trust is a large database of digitilised texts from universities all over the world (kind of an academic version of archive.org). Everything (as far as I know) is searchable. For "Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum", there are many results. The first page shows volume 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7.
