[Wall Inscriptions from Pompeii: A Selection of Graffiti and Dipinti from Pompeii and its Environs]
Ed. by Wachter, Rudolf
Aims and Scope
This unique work, which can serve as a teaching aid at all levels and is also suitable for a broader audience, provides a representative selection of nearly 1,500 wall inscriptions from Pompeii, transcribed, translated, and with commentary. The inscriptions provide a varied and entertaining window onto daily life in the pre-79 CE Roman Empire and also show Latin transitioning to Late Latin and the Romance languages.
