0 Κριτικές
This text aims to provide an accessible guide to the responsible use of Greek and Latin inscriptions as sources for ancient history by presenting a series of essays focused on a few central topics. It is intended as an introduction to the types of historical information supplied by inscriptional texts and a guide to the methods by which they can profitably be exploited. Each essay attempts to outline the limitations as well as the advantages of the type of epigraphic evidence with which it is concerned. The book includes a general introduction and a guide to the arrangement of the standard corpora inscriptions (SIG, ILS), as well as individual chapters on local languages and native cultures, epitaphs, onomastics and prosopography, the family and society, civic religious life and instrumentum domesticum and the ancient economy.
