Today’s visitors to Pompeii and Herculaneum encounter a vast profusion of written evidence. Painted announcements stand alongside inscribed notices and monumental stone inscriptions. The content is as varied as the conditions of creation and situations that once confronted the ancient reader. This demonstrates in singular fashion the interconnections between the context, action, content, and materiality of the texts.
Fanny Opdenhoff, Universität Hamburg, Deutschland.
„[…] Fanny Opdenhoff offers a new descriptive overview of the authors, subjects, forms, and uses of writing (understood in the widest possible sense). […] Ultimately, I suspect the book will be most useful for introducing particular inscription types and case studies for advanced graduate courses in Latin epigraphy.“ Michael Squire in: Greece & Rome, 2022/1
