The Epigraphy of Death

Studies in the History and Society of Greece and Rome

The Epigraphy of Death
Not available
Tombstones provide the largest single category of epigraphical evidence from the ancient world. However, epigraphy – the study of inscriptions – remains, for many students of history and archaeology, an abstruse subject. By marrying epigraphy and death, the contributors to this collection hope to encourage a wider audience to consider the importance of inscribed tombstones.
