With the fall of Corinth to Rome in 146 BC, vast devastation was wreaked upon this important port city on an enormous scale, erasing nearly all the remains of the independent polis and replacing it with a Roman-era city. This paper presents the very few surviving inscriptions from this period before Mummius' sack of Corinth and includes some of the few Greek decrees known at the time of the writing of the paper. In it Smith includes transcripts and analysis of these badly damaged fragments as well as translations and commentaries. This piece is not only useful to those interested in pre-Roman Corinth, but also to illustrate to students the overwealming lack of evidence for the politically powerful gatekeeper polis whose prominence in Classical Greece rivaled (if not exceeded) that of Athens and Sparta in its political power and economic wealth.

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.
