This third volume of the Corpus Inscriptionum Iudaeae/Palaestinae includes inscriptions from the South Coast from the time of Alexander through the end of Byzantine rule in the 7th century. It includes all the languages used in the inscriptions of this period – Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Aramaic, Samaritan, Christian Palestinian Aramaic, and Nabataean.

"In conclusion, these volumes are, and the series as a whole will be, the definitive collection of inscriptions from Israel/Palestine for years to come. The first two volumes alone are a magnificent achievement, and will prove even more useful if a comprehensive index is later published. This collection should be the first port of call for a sober verdict on any inscription which may be of relevance to NT study. In fact, every NT scholar would benefit greatly from idling away a morning or an afternoon going through the texts of these inscriptions."Simon Gathercole in: Journal for the Study of the New Testament 35(4), 394-401 "This is an excellent work of very high quality. This volume may yield somewhat less of importance for Judaic studies than the volumes on Jerusalem, but what it does offer is of the greatest value, especially the rich harvest from the Jaffa necropolis."Pieter W. van der Horst in: Journal for the Study of Judaism 46/2015 "While we anxiously await the next volumes, the editors are to be congratulated without reservation."Michael A.
