GREEK & LATIN INSCRIPTIONS, PAPYRI and SPECIAL WORKS
Chronicum Lindium: Die Lindische Tempelchronik. Edidit Chr. Blinkenberg
One of the most interesting results of the Danish excavations at Lindus in Rhodes, was a discovery of the year 1904. Clearing the ground near the modern church of St. Stephen close to the ancient theater of Lindus, and immediately below the Acropolis where Athena's temple stood, they came upon the incomplete floor of an earlier Byzantine church, and found this largely composed of inscribed slabs with the writing upwards.
The fifth of those slabs was the "Chronicle" of the temple, a historical inventory of Athena's temple treasures, the first donor being the eponymous hero Lindus, and the last being Philip V of Macedon (c. 200 B.C.).
The importance of the text for history, archeology, and literature has induced many scholars to comment upon it including Wilamowitz (Arch. Anzeiger, 1913, 42-6), Keil (Hermes, 2, 491) and Rostovtseff (Klio, xvi, 203). ISBN 0-89005-353-7. xii + 59pp Pb. $10.00

Inscriptiones Graecae: [Editio Minor]: Inscriptiones Atticae. Ed. F. Hiller von Gaertringen and J. Kirchner
The Inscriptions of Ancient Athens and Attica form the most popular series of Greek inscriptions. In our reprint, the complete contents of the seven original bulky tomes are offered in five handy cloth-bound and gold-stamped volumes.
The inscriptions contained in these five volumes offer not only little known poetry and prose from Athenian writers but also a large number of public administration documents providing new views on the government of the Athenian state and the private life of its population (from the sixth c. B.C. to the sixth century of our era).

Inscriptiones Graecae ad Res Romanas Pertinentes. (IGRR). 4 volumes in three. Edd. R. Cagnat, J. Toutain, P. Jouguet et G. Lafaye.
How important was the Greek language in the Roman empire, only the user of this set can actually visualize. Not only in the Eastern provinces but in Italy, Sicily and the Roman West an enormous number of Greek inscriptions of all kinds (starting from Letters of Emperors and other high officials of the imperial government and ending with simple dedications and epitaphs) has been found. The information provided from this invaluable group of epigraphical texts is of immense value and completes in many cases the evidence available from the Latin Inscriptions.

Chronicum Parium (Das Marmor Parium). Herausgegeben und erklart von Felix Jacoby.
Greek historical chronology has as one of its main sources a very famous text which has survived on an inscribed marble stele known to us as Marmor Parium.
Two fragments of this stele survive. One of which brought from Smyrna to London in 1627 is now preserved in the Ashmolean Museum Oxford (save the upper part which perished during the Civil War). The other, discovered at Paros in 1897, is now in the Museum there.
The compiler of the inscription, whose name is lost, claims to have "written up the dates from the beginning, derived from all kinds of records and general histories, starting from Cecrops, the first king of Athens, down to the archonship of Astyanax [?] at Paros and Diognetus at Athens," i.e. 264/3 B.C. ISBN 0-89005-362-2. xviii + 219pp Pb. $20.00
Inscriptiones Graecae: Galliae, Hispaniae, Brittaniae, Germaniae. (IG XIV). Edd. Georgius Kaibel & A. Lebegue.
Greek inscriptions continue to be found in France, Spain, England and Germany. One of the reasons that those epigraphical monuments are not well known may be that they were never published as a volume in the IG series, but only as an Appendix of IG XIV.
Reprinted for the first time as an independent volume, these valuable epigraphical texts must become better known than they were before. This new volume is augmented by an Appendix including all the Greek inscriptions from France, Spain, England and Germany published in the series of the Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum with a Preface by Al. N. Oikonomides. ISBN 0-89005-219-9. viii + 170pp Hb. $30.00
Griechischen Vaseninschriften. P. Kretschmer.
The Greek inscriptions painted on archaic and classical vases have never been honored with a special volume of the IG or the IG2. Reference works like Dittenberger's SIG3 and Michel's RIG have never used them, and they are neglected by the majority of epigraphists. The information, however, that these neglected ancient texts can provide is invaluable for the student of Greek mythology and for those who study the public and private lives of the Greeks.
P. Kretschmer was one of the first scholars to produce an independent Sylloge of Greek vase-inscriptions (1894). Despite the fact that many new texts have been discovered since that time, no one has produced a new work in this epigraphical area of study. ISBN 0-89005-347-2. 251pp $25.00
Inschriften Griechischer Bildhauer. Greek Inscriptions Recording Names and Works of Ancient Sculptors. E. M. Loewy.
This is a nearly complete collection of Greek inscriptions recording names and works of ancient sculptors. Loewy's work remains a very valuable work for the superb line drawings of the inscriptions and the prosopographical documentation of the sculptors from other sources. ISBN 0-89005-112-7. 450pp Hb. $25.00
Receuil d'Inscriptions Grecques (Supplements 1912-1917). Inscriptiones Atticae in RIG (Suppl.) Ch. Michel.
This previously hard-to-find source book is a must for any classical scholar and a necessary edition to any library's collection. Many of the inscriptions included are not found in the IG I2 and IG II/III2 or the early volumes of the Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum. ISBN 0-89005-110-0. 235pp Pb. $25.00
Greek Verse Inscriptions. Epigrams on Funerary Stelae and Monuments. Werner Peek.
A monumental collection of 2,077 grave epigrams with critical notes on each epigraphical text. The work of Peek supersedes the earlier attempt by Kaibel (Epigrammata Graeca e lapidibus conlecta). (in German). ISBN 0-89005-479-7. xxx + 740pp Pb. $50.00
Inscriptiones Graecae Metricae: Ex Scriptoribus praeter Anthologia Collectae. Th. Preger.
Preger's collection is a basic reference work for the classical scholar, the ancient historian and the epigraphist. It is a real "Corpus" of all the Greek metrical inscriptions mentioned by ancient writers in their works, which have not been preserved in the original epigraphical texts, but only in their literary transcriptions.
Famous texts like the epigrams by Simonides for those who fell at Marathon (IGM 199), Thermopylae (IGM 21), Salamis (IGM 6) and others, appear in the IGM accompanied by all the literary testimonia related to them. Epigrams written by famous poets (Aeschylus IGM 39, 42; Callimachus IGM 113; Euripides IGM 9,220; Pindar IGM 249; Plato IGM 235, 267, 268, 276) to be inscribed on public or private monuments are also included, accompanied by a great number of other poems written by anonymous or little known poets. Preger has also included all the Greek poems from the Anthologia Palatina, Anthologia Planudea, and Anthologia Lyrica which were copied at different times from their original inscriptions by ancient writers. Four indices and two concordances make the IGM a very easy to use reference. ISBN 0-89005-214-X. xxviii + 252pp Hb. $30.00
Inscriptiones Graecae Antiquissimae: Praeter Atticae in Attica Repertas. Hermannus Roehl.
Roehl's 'Corpus of the most ancient Greek inscriptions' has been called 'the cornerstone of any epigraphical study on the archaic Greek inscriptions.' The inscriptions included in this volume were found in Greece, the islands, Asia Minor, Egypt and the rest of Africa, Sicily, Italy and Southern France.
Superb drawings accompany each inscription. Not only do they allow the study of the form used for each letter in the different Greek alphabets, but also they teach how to read the texts written in the archaic period and all the problems connected with their transcription, evaluation of the lacuna and restoration. ISBN 0-89005-221-2. viii + 192pp + illus. Hb. $45.00
Inscriptiones Graecae ad Inlustrandas Dialectos Selectae. F. Solmsen & E. Fraenkel.
The book is a collection of inscriptions throughout the Greek world (except the West). It offers the student of Greek epigraphy selected examples of text demonstrating the particular dialects used by Greek-speaking peoples. ISBN 0-89005-370-7. viii + 113pp Hb. $15.00
Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum. Vols. 1-25 + Index. (1923-1971) Bound in 8 vols. The current series (1976-97) is available in separate volumes.
Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum is an annual review of the progress of research on Greek inscriptions. It is the standard reference tool for scholars of archeology, history, classics, religion, law and art. The editors reprint the complete texts of recently discovered inscriptions, with full bibliographic citations. New research on previously published documents is presented with brief commentary and references.
The early volumes (vols. I-XXV, 1923-1971), out of print for some years, are now available again, conveniently bound in 8 hardbound volumes. The index for volumes XI-XX is included. In the first 25 volumes a wealth of new inscriptions and information on older ones had been collected which made SEG into an indispensable research-instrument. While out of print, new libraries and a new generation of researchers in the field of classical studies have come into existence. In combination with the continuing new SEG this reprint will facilitate research in all those aspects of Greco-Roman civilization, to which epigraphy makes a contribution.
Published between 1923 and 1971 this extremely important set includes all the new Greek inscriptions found by explorers and excavators in this period, as well as many revised texts of inscriptions found earlier but completed by newly discovered or combined pieces by the epigraphists. Its immense reference value has been capsulated in a few lines in a well-known book review: "Any type of research paper on ancient Greek and Roman history and antiquities that has not used the treasury of the new inscriptions collected in the volumes of the SEG, is not worth the value of the paper upon which it was written." ISBN 0-89005-428-2. 8 vols. Hb. $900.00
Supplementum Inscriptionum Atticarum. SIA I. (IG I2, II2/III2). Paraleipomena et Addenda. Ed. Al. N. Oikonomides.
SIA I adds to the IG series a large number of Inscriptions (Ed. R. Wuensch, W. Peek, G. Stamiris) found in Athens and Attica before 1940, but not included in the IG series, as well as 1133 new inscriptions, readings, and restorations published between 1941 and 1957. ISBN 0-89005-126-7. x + 595pp Hb. $45.00
SIA II. (IG I2, II2/III2). Paraleipomena et Addenda. Ed. Al. N. Oikonomides.
SIA II contains the addenda to I.G. I2 + II/III2 that J.J.E. Hondius published in his Novae Inscriptiones Atticae and in the first three volumes of Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum. This volume also includes the lengthy and Important review-article of I.G. II2, pars prima, Berlin 1913, (Ed. J. Kirchner) con-taining the decrees of the years 403/2-230/29, by A. C. Johnson in Classical Philology 9 (1914). ISBN 0-89005-249-2. 441pp Hb. $45.00
SIA III. (IG I2, II/III2). Paraleipomena et Addenda. Ed. Al. N. Oikonomides.
SIA III contains texts and drawings of the ancient Jewish and Christian inscriptions of Athens and Attica which were not included in the editio minor (G. Dittenberger in IG III, C. Bayet , and the monograph of A. E. Raubitschek and I. S. Craeghan ). ISBN 0-89005-275-1. xiv + 238pp Hb. $45.00
SIA IV. (IG I2, II2/III2). Paraleipomena et Addenda. Ed. Al. N. Oikonomides.
SIA IV is a volume of material that the majority of the scholars have not had the opportunity to study for at least half a century. The Attic vase inscriptions and the Attic graffiti inscriptions have never been included in the IG and the IG2 series (with the small exception of a few Ostracism-Ostraca). Includes inscriptions from all the entries on inscribed vases or vase frag-ments from the work of Graef & Langlots -- Die antiken Vasen von der Akropolis zu Athen (Berlin 1925-1933) -- (repaginated and in their original numerical order including in-text drawings) from the volume IV in the SIA series. ISBN 0-89005-377-4. 277pp Hb. $45.00
SIA V. SIA V starts with the group of the most important Attic graffiti inscriptions; the Ostraca-Ostracismi Atheniensium. No modern reference work exists about these valuable historical inscriptions, so we have covered this gap by grouping together the excellent articles published in Hesperia by Eugene Vanderpool and his small monograph, Ostracism in Athens.
As a first reference to the excellent and completely up to date 'Corpus' of the known , we have added the Concordances and the indices from J. H. Kroll's, Athenian Bronze Allotment Plates (Cambridge, Mass. 1972) in pp. 119-132.
SIA V closes with the text from the volume Kerameikos III (Berlin, 1941), edited by W. Peek including all the inscriptions, Graffiti inscriptions and Defixionum Tabellae (Cf. SIA I, pp. 1-250) found in the excavations of the Kerameikos by the German Archeo-logical Institute. ISBN 0-89005-531-9. 244pp Hb. $45.00
SIA VI. Ed. M. C. J. Miller.
For the first time, the Latin inscriptions (including graffiti) of this region of Greece are collected in one volume. Many major, hard-to-find articles on these inscriptions and a full concordance are included. ISBN 0-89005-532-7. pp + xx plates. Hb. $35.00
SIA VII (See Raubitschek - Dedications from the Athenian Acropolis) ISBN 0-89005-553-5, $65.00

Greek Historical Inscriptions (6th c. BC - 323 BC). M. N. Tod.
The one original 'bridge' that students of ancient Greek history have been using to pass from the study of the ancient historians to the study of the original epigraphical sources has in our century been M. N. Tod's GHI. This collection of Greek historical inscriptions is still the best and most complete work of its kind. In the last decade it was unjustly condemned to run 'permanently out of print' in view of been 'replaced' by a 'new collection.'
Since our opinion about this admirable landmark in the history of Greek epigraphical and historical studies concur with ideas of a considerable number of academic colleagues who warmly suggested its reprinting, the present edition is now issued. The two volumes of Tod's GHI appear now together in one volume for handier use. Three new concordances and a preface by Al. N. Oikonomides updates the epigraphical bibliography for the inscriptions selected by the editor. ISBN 0-89005-542-6. 2 vols in 1. xxii + 266pp/viii + 344pp Pb. $35.00

An Outline of the History of the Greek Language, (with particular emphasis on the koine and the subsequent periods). P. S. Costas.
Selecting a very modest title for his book, Prof. Dr. P. S. Costas (1900-1974) called his history of the Greek Language an Outline.
Costas wrote his book encouraged by Paul Shorey and under the aegis of Carl Darling Buck and Walter Petersen at the University of Chicago. It is actually the best scholarly history of the Greek Language, contains excellent bibliography and uses a great number of references on subjects rarely mentioned in the other histories. ISBN 0-89005-259-X. xxvi + 143pp Pb. $20.00
Titles of Addresses in Christian Greek Epistolography. I. Dinneen.
It is the aim of the present work to study titles of address as they are found in one of the literary sources for titles, the Christian epistolography of the first five centuries. These results are compared with the testimony of certain outstanding examples of pagan epistolography. Besides recording such lexicographical data as meaning, authors, frequency and the recognition of words as titles, it aims especially to discover the social estate to which each title was attached.
Under the term, titles of address, are included not only nouns and substantives which are titles in the exact sense, but also adjectives which have a conventional usage as titles of distinction or as epithets. ISBN 0-89005-376-6. 114pp Hb. $15.00
The Form of the Ancient Greek Letter of the Epistolary Papyri. F. J. Exler.
The limited edition of this essential work is now made available to all. The literary form of the ancient Greek letter and of papyri letters in particular is described in this key study, which includes special formulas for the beginning end of papyri letters. ISBN 0-89005-120-8. 140pp Hb. $15.00
Voruntersuchungen Zu Einer Grammatik der Papyri der Nachchristlichen Zeit. S. G. Kapsomenakis.
The Greek language of the papyri of The Late Christian (i.e., Byzantine) period is definitely different from the language of the Hellenistic and Late Hellenistic (Greco-Roman) period. For this reason, the classicist who tries to read Byzantine papyri needs help that cannot be given by the grammars of classical and Hellenistic Greek.
Kapsomenakis was the first in our century to attempt to cover this gap. This valuable contribution to papyrology has been out of print since 1938, yet it is still one of the most necessary works on its subject. ISBN 0-89005-294-8. xvi + 148pp $20.00
Books and Readers in Ancient Greece and Rome. F. G. Kenyon.
Kenyon's work does not claim to replace the standard works on ancient book-production, but to supplement them, and that especially with regard to the period during which papyrus was the principal material in use. It is in respect of this period that our knowledge has been chiefly increased through the discoveries of papyri in Egypt. The object of this book is to bring together the results of these discoveries which have greatly extended our knowledge of this transitional form of book, which appears to have had a special vogue among the Christian community in Egypt.
Although the subject of the book is primarily bibliographical, namely, the methods of book making from the date of Homer until the supersession of papyrus by vellum in the fourth century of our era, one of its main objects has been to show the bearings of the material and form of books on literary history and criticism, and to consider what new light has been thrown by recent research on the origin and growth of the habit of reading in ancient Greece and Rome. ISBN 0-89005-340-5. 136pp Pb. $15.00
The Paleography of Greek Papyri. F. G. Kenyon.
