Dedications from the Athenian Akropolis; A Catalogue of the by A. E. Jeffery, L. H. Raubitschek

By A. E. Jeffery, L. H. Raubitschek

Instantly upon book Dedications gained its
secure position in scholarly literature. As an indispensable
tool for paintings on Attica within the 6th and
fifth centuries B.c. it grew to become so popular to every
epigrapher, archaeologist, and historian that little
need be acknowledged the following concerning the scope and contents of
the e-book. It has, additionally, been many times and
competently reviewed elsewhere.
The quantity is the results of lengthy, committed, and
most exacting exertions, the development of which became
known via numerous initial courses. In
the process those the writer confirmed an ever-growing
mastery of "architectural epigraphy," to take advantage of a
designation which characterizes the categorical approach
of Raubitschek. this isn't a truly chuffed term,
since it implies adjustments which are non-existent, and
the writer himself rightly states (p. 433) : "this same
method is apparent to a person who has the opportunity
to examine the originals." Raubitschek's achievement
in assembling never-ending dedicators is imposing,
and in simple terms the final cautious research of the whole
work may give an approximate concept of the enormous
difficulty of placing order into one of these disturbing
wealth of person fragments. Many one other would
with resignation have constrained himself to a mere
selection. Raubitschek has had the braveness to give
everything, for which we can't thank him enough,
and with it additionally the braveness to make error, which
is regularly an ethical fulfillment. In view of the total
accomplishment it can seem unjust to live too
much at the adverse aspect. A conscientious reviewer,
however, has to notice anything Raubitschek himself
confesses to freely and again and again (e.g. lower than nos 250
and 309): many a reconstruction or attribution to
certain periods of monuments is only hypothetical,
especially while according to arbitrary restorations of
the inscriptions. the keenness to distribute as many fragments
as attainable one of the respective categories
(and who wouldn't sympathize with this desire?)
was guaranteed to produce a few violence. however the low
number of only 9 unclassified fragments, as
opposed to the 3 hundred and eighty-four classified
ones, doesn't correspond to the proof and tends
to create a misunderstanding through minimizing the factors
of uncertainty. the writer must have enlarged
this part significantly.

Example text

Butlin also based his judgement on minimalist assumptions, pointing out that Timor was more easily reached during the Pleistocene than was Borneo/Sulawesi (his assumed point of departure to reach New Guinea) and that the Kimberley route required less navigational skill because Australia had huge target width compared with the target islands of Wallacea. Butlin used newer data, unavailable to Birdsell, and noted that if the sea level fell to 60 m below present levels (and in many cases a lesser amount of -30 m to -40 m), a long chain of shoal islands, running roughly parallel to Timor and Roti, would appear on the eastern side of the Timor Trough.
