Inscriptions grecques dialectales de la Grande Grèce

T. II: Colonies achéennes

0.00 CHF tax incl.

Following the first volume on the epigraphs of Euboean colonies, this book presents the monuments of the Achean colonies, the oldest of which date from the eighth century B.C. Even though the attested Achean texts date from a later period than Euboean ones, they all use an older alphabet. Sybaris and her rival city Crotone left epigraphical remains scantier than their great reputation! The sinking of the ruins of Sybaris doubtless robbed us forever of the inscriptions of a city capable of assembling 300,000 soldiers to fight Crotone! Dubois includes analysis of numismatic inscriptions, often the only remaining evidence of civic inscriptions.
