This two-part work delivers an introduction to the study of Greek epigraphy. Part I explores archaic inscriptions and the Greek alphabet, while Part II investigates the inscriptions of Attica. Notes and commentaries are in English with Greek excerpts.
This book is the fourth edition. It provides information on Latin epigraphy, divided into three parts with two appendices and seven indices. Part I discusses the characteristics and limits of epigraphy and concludes with a substantial analysis of the scientific study of ancient Latin epigraphy, namely its transmission, conservation, and utilization. Part II presents alphabet, style, and dating information. Part III presents examples of inscriptions with commentary.
This book provides an easy-to-use study reference for students of Latin epigraphy, divided into eight introductory sections covering topics like provenance, technical details, and subject matter. The bulk of the work presents the texts of inscriptions with English translations and commentary. The study is punctuated by a presentation of sixty-four quality plate illustrations, which are listed and described in the beginning of the book.
The first two supplements of the Brill's New Pauly series are entitled "Chronologies of the Ancient World: Names, Dates, and Dynasties" and "Dictionary of Greek and Latin Authors and Texts." These lists are not meant to replace a narrative history; however, it can be used independently of the Brill's New Pauly series.
This work establishes principles for working with ancient papyri from the Byzantine milieu. The work is structured like an annotated bibliography, divided into three main chapters with several sub-topics. Three appendices, plates and transcriptions, and a demonstration of the results of the scientific work are provided. The text is in French.
In this small textbook, the original work of Susini on the creation of Latin epigraphy is made accessible to English readers. Chapter subjects include epigraphy and palaeography, phases of engraving, workers and their workshops, stones, tools and their interaction, the preparation of the panel, errors, the inscription as a cultural monument, and epigraphy and history. The work includes an index of the inscriptions.
The book, as an introduction to the science of papyrology, undertakes the task of demonstrating the development of discovery and interpretation as parts of the process of identifying and defining the papyri, with emphasis on the nature and history of papyrology, and a set of guidelines for research. Plates and notes are included, along with a general index, index of Greek words, and a map of Egypt.
