A list of Iron Age Luwian inscriptions since CHLI

The starting point of any Hieroglyphic Luwian research is the monumental corpus of the Iron Age Luwian inscriptions edited by J. D. Hawkins. Fortunately, however, there is a constant flow of new inscriptions, thus every scholar involved in this period and/or language has to compile his/her own list of the inscriptions published (or partly published) since the publication of the corpus (actually, since its submission). This is my version, please feel free to use it and comment. Note that this list does not include further discussions, only the text editions (except the case of inscriptions of disputed date, see §9) and (some of) their improvements. This list will be continuously updated (last modified: 25/08/2017, I'm very grateful to Rostislav Oreshko, Hasan Peker, and Massimo Poetto for providing additional information).
