Read e-book online Dedications from the Athenian Akropolis; A Catalogue of the PDF

By A. E. Jeffery, L. H. Raubitschek

Instantly upon e-book Dedications received its
secure position in scholarly literature. As an indispensable
tool for paintings on Attica within the 6th and
fifth centuries B.c. it turned so popular to every
epigrapher, archaeologist, and historian that little
need be acknowledged right here concerning the scope and contents of
the booklet. It has, furthermore, been again and again and
competently reviewed elsewhere.
The quantity is the results of lengthy, committed, and
most exacting exertions, the development of which became
known via a number of initial guides. In
the process those the writer confirmed an ever-growing
mastery of "architectural epigraphy," to take advantage of a
designation which characterizes the explicit approach
of Raubitschek. this isn't a truly satisfied term,
since it implies alterations which are non-existent, and
the writer himself rightly states (p. 433) : "this same
method is clear to a person who has the opportunity
to learn the originals." Raubitschek's achievement
in assembling never-ending dedicators is imposing,
and in simple terms the general cautious learn of the whole
work can provide an approximate suggestion of the enormous
difficulty of placing order into any such disturbing
wealth of person fragments. Many one other would
with resignation have restricted himself to a mere
selection. Raubitschek has had the braveness to give
everything, for which we won't thank him enough,
and with it additionally the braveness to make error, which
is constantly an ethical success. In view of the total
accomplishment it will possibly look unjust to stay too
much at the detrimental facet. A conscientious reviewer,
however, has to notice anything Raubitschek himself
confesses to freely and many times (e.g. lower than nos 250
and 309): many a reconstruction or attribution to
certain periods of monuments is only hypothetical,
especially while in response to arbitrary restorations of
the inscriptions. the fervour to distribute as many fragments
as attainable one of the respective categories
(and who wouldn't sympathize with this desire?)
was absolute to produce a few violence. however the low
number of only 9 unclassified fragments, as
opposed to the 3 hundred and eighty-four classified
ones, doesn't correspond to the evidence and tends
to create a misunderstanding via minimizing the factors
of uncertainty. the writer must have enlarged
this part significantly.
