Non-Attic Greek Vase Inscriptions by Rudolf Wachter
Book DescriptionThe inscriptions that accompany the painted scenes on non-Attic Greek vases are an extremely important source for knowledge of ancient Greek, in particular colloquial language and signs of foreign dialect. The corpus of material is made all the more valuable because the inscriptions were painted or incised before firing, and thus cannot be held suspect as possible later additions. In this volume, Dr Wachter provides a detailed catalogue of such inscriptions together with a commentary and separate analysis dedicated to the examination of epigraphical, philological, and onomastic aspects of this unusually illuminating type of evidence. This he does in the full context of the vase-paintings and associated myths to which the inscriptions are attached.
