Addenda to the Cutter of Agora I 4266

Show Summary Details


The Cutter of Agora I 4266 began work in the last years of the fourth century and continued inscribing down to about the year 270. The addenda to the list of inscriptions is given. The I 4266 Cutter has a marked preference for arranging his letters on the stone stoichedon. He either uses a strict pattern or occasionally he slightly modifies it for a few spaces in some lines. The lettering of II2 479 by the present cutter, the I 4266 Cutter, is slightly larger and more liberally spaced, both vertically and horizontally, than the lettering of II2 480, with the result that the inscribed surface area of II2 479 was originally on the order of 20 percent greater than that of II2 480.
