Theopompos and the Public Documentation of Fifth-Century Athens (Frances Pownall) ; Horton Hears an Ionian (Gordon Shrimpton) ; Rescuing Local History: Epigraphy and the Island of Thera (Sheila Ager). ; Phoenix Journal of the Classical Association of Canada Supplementary Volume XLVII; 224 pages; Epigraphy is a method of inferring and analyzing historical data by means of inscriptions found on ancient artifacts such as stones, coins, and statues. It has proven indispensable for archaeologists and classicists, and has considerable potential for the study of ancient history at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Epigraphy and the Greek Historian is a collection of essays that explore various ways in which inscriptions can help students reconstruct and understand Greek History. In order to engage with the study of epigraphy, this collection is divided into two parts, Athens and Athens from the outside. The contributors maintain the importance of epigraphy, arguing that, in some cases, inscriptions are the only tools we have to recover the local history of places that stand outside the main focus of ancient literary sources, which are often frustratingly Athenocentric. Ideally, the historian uses both inscriptions and literary sources to make plausible inferences and thereby weave together the disconnected threads of the past into a connected and persuasive narrative. Epigraphy and the Greek Historian is a comprehensive examination of epigraphy and a timely resource for students and scholars involved in the study of ancient history.

20 Delmaire, Roland & Janine Desmulliez & Pierre-Louis Gatier CORRESPONDANCES Documents Pour L'Histoire De L'Antiquité Tardive. Actes Du Colloque International, Université Charles-De-Gaulle-Lille 3, 20-22 Novembre 2003
Lyon Maison De L'Orient Et De La Méditerranéen 1996 2356680039 / 9782356680037 Softcover Very Good+ 
Faint bump to top of spine. Light crease to lower front corner of wraps. ; Cet ouvrage réunit des contributions consacrées à l'apport historique des corres­pondances grecques, latines et syriaques de l'Antiquité tardive (du IVe au VIIe s. ) dans le monde méditerranéen occidental et oriental. Il est question d'écrivains chrétiens célèbres, comme Ambroise de Milan, Augustin d'Hippone ou Jean Chrysostome, de prélats influents, comme le patriarche Sévère d'Antioche ou le pape Grégoire le Grand, mais aussi d'auteurs moins connus, comme Avit de Vienne ou Ennode de Pavie, et de rhéteurs païens, comme Libanios d'Antioche. Au-delà des épistoliers, il s'agit de comparer les correspondances littéraires avec les lettres ordinaires dont témoignent les papyrus égyptiens, et de comprendre les usages de la correspondance – des empereurs, des évêques et des rhéteurs – dans la vie religieuse, dans les relations sociales et dans l'exercice du pouvoir. Les procédés de rédaction et de distribution des correspondances, la constitution et la transmission des recueils de lettres sont examinés. Les lettres sont l'une des sources majeures de l'histoire de l'Antiquité tardive.; Collection De La Maison De L'Orient Méditerranéen 40. Série Littéraire Et Philosophique 13; 244 pages; Actes du colloque international, Université Charles-de-Gaulle-Lille 3, 20-22 novembre 2003
