The destruction of Corinth by Mummius was complete and devastating, challenging any subsequent archaeological study of the area. Powell here gives a listing of surviving inscriptions from his excavations in Corinth with illustrations, text, and commentary that includes nine inscriptions that likely predate Julius Caesar's rebuilding of the city in 46 BC. These fragments point to the complete devastation wreaked in the fall of Corinth just as the whole body of inscriptions illuminate the city's resurgence in the first century AD.

A Comprehensive Grammar to Hammurabi’s Stele

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0284-2
This complete grammar of Code of Hammurabi is formally arranged and can be the basis for learning the rest of Akkadian grammar. Students of Biblical Hebrew or Arabic will find it a most convenient introduction to this sister language. The cuneiform text has been set out in columns opposite a phonetic transcription, thus enabling the comprehensive set of citations illustrating various points of Akkadian grammar to be easily checked within their wider linguistic context. This book, when used in conjunction with the author’s previous book “Hammurabi’s Laws”, makes it possible for a student to learn to read and understand the whole text of Hammurabi’s Stele.
