Inscriptions from Thessaloniki

Filed under: publications — Paschalis Paschidis @ 08:45

Since it seems not to have reached the libraries yet, let me signal the following publication (in Greek, with a summary in German):

Pantelis M. Nigdelis, Ἐπιγραφικὰ Θεσσαλονίκεια. Συμβολὴ στὴν πολιτικὴ καὶ κοινωνικὴ ἱστορία τῆς ἀρχαίας Θεσσαλονίκης, Thessaloniki: University Studio Press, 2006, 646 p., ISBN: 9601215506.

It is a publication of 75 inscriptions from Thessaloniki (of which 59 previously unpublished, if I counted correctly) and 66 testimonia epigraphica, with copious commentaries.
