Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum (CVA)


CVA digital – Free Access to the Results

The Database CVAonline at Oxford University

Since 2004, all corpus volumes of the international project can be freely accessed online via the database hosted by the Oxford University. (CVAonline.org). 

In cooperation with the Beazley Archive Pottery Database, data records are generated for each vessel.

This way, a complete register of the growing corpus is being developed, which can be searched according to various criteria.

Also, entries to vases, that had been insufficiently presented in older volumes, are being updated by new literature and possibly new photos.

Individually, they can be found on this website’s Publications page, as CVA series they are found via the BAdW publication server (publikationen.badw.de).
