Abstract

Abstract

This contribution contains brief, introductory guidance on how to read Greek inscriptions. It discusses basic aspects of early Greek scripts, in particular the ‘light-blue’ alphabet of Athens as it was in use until the end of the 5th century BCE. Also included are sections on , punctuation, and numericals. Furthermore, some information is offered on spelling, phonology, morphology and syntax. Finally, the discourse units of a prototypical Athenian decree are analysed and related to underlying political procedures.
