The destruction of Corinth by Mummius was complete and devastating, and the cite lay in ruins until Julius Caesar's rebuilding of the city in 46 BC. For this reason the remains of ancient Corinth are far more Roman than many others on the Greek mainland and there are inscriptions in Latin and well as Greek. This article provides transcription, text, and commentary on the Latin inscriptions known in Corinth in 1918 and provides a useful tool for understanding the civic life of Corinth under Roman control.

An Old Zand-Pahlavi Glossary

Edited in the Original Characters
ISBN: 978-1-59333-996-8
This historical dictionary contains an English translation of the Frahang-I Oim-evak, an antique Avestan and Middle Persian dictionary. A collaboration between Martin Haug and Destur Hoshengji Jamaspji, this rare glossary provides the Pahlavi translations for almost 900 Avestan words. Avestan is an Eastern Old Iranian language used by the Zoroastrian Avesta. It represents one of the earliest known Iranian languages. This dictionary was one of the earliest attempts to present the material to a western readership. Still considered a historic entry-point into the language, Haug’s glossary has become a rare find. Gorgias Press is pleased to bring it back into circulation as a part of our Historical Dictionary series.
