This site was created in the project P21706 "An interactive online etymological dictionary of Lepontic", funded by the FWF – Fonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung, the Austrian Science Fund. The initial funding ran from Sept. 1, 2009 until June 30, 2011. Additional funding was received in March 2012 from the Celtic Research Trust (Isle of Man), so work on the project continues.
When finished, the website can be expected to host a multimedia lexicon of the remnants of Lepontic and Cisalpine Gaulish, the Celtic languages spoken in the first millennium BC in northern Italy and southern Switzerland. The heart of the lexicon are an edition of all objects bearing Lepontic and Cisalpine Gaulish inscriptions, and an etymological dictionary of the attested words.
