It is likely that an epigraphic or papyrological project will need to maintain a database or authority list containing onomastic or basic prosopographical data on persons named in the corpus. In addition to the tags and attributes suggested below, therefore, the individual names might be linked to the keys or ids in this controlled list.

As a minimum, personal names should be tagged with the <persName> tag, as demonstrated below. In addition, the attributes 'reg' and 'key' may be used to offer normalised spelling and link to a database/authority list, respectively.

There exist various prosopographical databases and onomastic lists that may provide keys for personal names in inscriptions. For more information see the section/appendix on authority lists and controlled vocabularies. The controlled vocabulary being used should be indicated either in the header (which section? or using an as yet undertermined new attribute on persname.
