Reviewing the New Linear B Tablets From Thebes

Published Online: 2008-02-27 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/kadm.42.1-2.31


Interested scholars should read my two reviews of the edition with commentary of the new Thebes tablets carefully and decide for themselves whether the account provided in the preceding article by V. L. Aravantinos, L. Godart and A. Sacconi (hereafter AGS) is accurate. The whole first page of my review in Minos (p. 475) praises the scholarly team involved in excavating, preserving, joining, drawing and editing the new Thebes tablets. I call aspects of this work ‘fine’, ‘superb’ and ‘expert’. I praise its speed. In my AJA review (p. 115), I stress that “[t]he transcriptions, photographs, drawings, indices and palaeographical tables in this volume are good and useful”. I conclude that the edition of the texts, i.e., the drawings and transcriptions and related indices and tables, in TOP is “good work” and “reasonably well done”. Why? Because it is good work that is reasonably well done.
