L'Année épigraphique (Abbreviation: AE) is an annual publication on Latin epigraphy .

It was founded in 1888 by René Cagnat , who held the chair for "Epigraphy and Roman Antiquity" at the Collège de France , and Jean-Guillaume Feignon as assistant epigraphist. It was united with the Revue archéologique until 1964 , since then it has appeared as an independent publication by the « Presses universitaires de France » publishing house . L'Année épigraphique systematically displays all the newly discovered and published inscriptions of Roman antiquity every year , usually with an imprint of the text. It also reports on new readings and literature on already known inscriptions. Index volumes appear at regular intervals.

L'Année épigraphique is an important aid in research on ancient Rome and, in a similar way to the Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum in the field of Greek epigraphy, complements the completed inscription corpora such as the Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum .
