Show Summary Details


The lettering of the cutter of IG II2 776 has a somewhat uncertain appearance, perhaps because the letters are lightly incised. Another contributing factor is that his letter-strokes often do not quite meet, particularly the apex of alpha. The peculiarities of individual letters are shown. None of the cutter's texts presented are stoichedon. He is careful with word divisions and usually achieves syllabification. He does not leave vacats in his texts.

Keywords: IG II2 776; individual letters; letters; strokes; syllabification; word divisions
