Show Summary Details


The cutter of IG II2 788 was one of the master cutters of his time. He inscribed neatly and often used a stoichedon arrangement. Among his most distinctive letter-shapes are alpha, sigma, and upsilon. A list of inscriptions is presented. The wording of IG II2 768 + 802 is so similar that they were almost certainly proposed by the same speaker. Furthermore, these two inscriptions, when first produced, were all but identical in their dimensions, letter-height, and so on. However, these two texts are clearly not two copies of the same decree, for different individuals are honored. IG II2 928 is dated by Kirchner ad loc.c. init. s. II.” IG II2 769 + 441, Agora I 1489, Agora I 4495, and Agora I 5269 are described.
