Sardis in Lydia is most famous for its king Croesos, whose fall forms the foundational story for Herodotos' Historia with its famous moral that one should count no man happy until he is dead. This piece gives the texts of several long inscriptions found in Sardis, an intersection of Greek and Persian culture whose fall to Darius was in many ways a catalyst for the Persian wars that followed. This piece includes the text, translation, and commentary for a long inscription found on the temple of Artemis and shorter honorific inscriptions on cylindrical stelai found in the ancient city, all dating from the 4th century BC. The piece is of interest to students of inter cultural contact in the ancient Mediterranean and forms an illuminating counterpoint to the Sardis of Herdotus.

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.
