From Christina Kokkinia:

Survey results in Boubon (Cibyratis, northern Lycia) 2004-2006.

This website offers a preliminary presentation of the results of three survey campaigns conducted in Boubon and its territory in 2004-2006 as part of the Cibyratis Project of the University of Heidelberg under the direction of Thomas Corsten in collaboration with the Institute of Greek and Roman Antiquity (IGRA/ΚΕΡΑ) of the National Hellenic Research Foundation in Athens (NHRF/ΕΙΕ). It includes a corpus of the inscriptions found in Boubon and its territory, 15 of which are published here for the first time. Though our main interest lay in the epigraphy of the region, we have attempted, on the evidence of surface finds, to document the archaeological remains as thoroughly as possible.

  1. This is very impressive!
    There is a small typo in your transcription of your inscription n. 32: a τει, perfectly visible on the beautiful photo supplied, is missing from the transcription of l. 3 (etei-mesen instead of e-mesen).
    I find n. 64 puzzling: the photo gives only half the text (a large part of the column is of course invisible), and I have no solution, but one would expect Tatas and Artemeis to be those who write in memory – Tatas of his son, Artemis of her brother (this would have to be the same person,possibly also named Tatas, although I have difficulties in making prosopographical sense of this; comparison with the other texts however shows typically the person who dedicates the funerary stone to be named in the nominative at the beginning. ?).

  2. Thank you Paola, I will have etei-meisen corrected (fortunately it is correct in the book version, ISBN 978-960-7905-47-5). As for No. 64, it puzzles me too, I too would have expected a sigma on the stone at the end of the first name (and hence a nominative Τατας). But I could see quite clearly the oblique stroke of a nu, so ν with underdot it had to be. I will try to have more photos posted soon (I have one on which you can see that half N), but there is only so much our IT-people can do, and they work very hard already.
