I curatori del volume, Peter Liddel e Polly Low, hanno intrapreso, nel 2003, un progetto-pilota volto alla costituzione di un database di citazioni e riferimenti alle iscrizioni negli autori antichi. Le prime riflessioni scaturite dalla raccolta del materiale e le molteplici questioni metodologiche nate in seno al progetto hanno portato, nel giugno 2009, a un convegno, tenutosi all’Università di Manchester. Il volume in oggetto raccoglie le relazioni presentate in quell’occasione, e offre al lettore una serie di stimolanti riflessioni sull’impiego del materiale epigrafico da parte degli autori più diversi e nei generi più disparati, dall’età classica alla prima età imperiale, in Grecia e a Roma.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0199665745, Hardcover)

Inscriptions and their Uses in Greek and Latin Literature offers a broad set of perspectives on the diverse forms of epigraphic material present in ancient literary texts, and the variety of responses, both ancient and modern, which they can provoke.

This collection of essays explores the various ways in which ancient authors used inscribed texts and documents. From the archaic period onwards, ancient literary authors working within a range of genres, such as oratory, philosophy, poetry, and historiography, discussed and quoted a variety of inscriptions. They deployed them as ornamental devices, as alternative voices to that of the narrator, to display scholarship, to make points about history, politics, individual morality, and piety, and even to express moral views about the nature of epigraphy.
