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

Instantly upon book Dedications received 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 renowned to every
epigrapher, archaeologist, and historian that little
need be stated the following in regards to the scope and contents of
the ebook. It has, additionally, been again and again and
competently reviewed elsewhere.
The quantity is the results of lengthy, dedicated, and
most exacting hard work, the growth of which became
known via numerous initial guides. In
the process those the writer confirmed an ever-growing
mastery of "architectural epigraphy," to exploit a
designation which characterizes the explicit approach
of Raubitschek. this isn't a truly chuffed term,
since it implies variations which are non-existent, and
the writer himself rightly states (p. 433) : "this same
method is clear to a person who has the opportunity
to examine the originals." Raubitschek's achievement
in assembling unending dedicators is imposing,
and merely the general cautious research of the whole
work may give an approximate inspiration of the enormous
difficulty of placing order into this kind of disturbing
wealth of person fragments. Many one other would
with resignation have restricted himself to a mere
selection. Raubitschek has had the braveness to give
everything, for which we won't thank him enough,
and with it additionally the braveness to make blunders, which
is consistently an ethical success. In view of the total
accomplishment it will possibly look unjust to reside too
much at the unfavourable facet. A conscientious reviewer,
however, has to notice anything Raubitschek himself
confesses to freely and many times (e.g. less than nos 250
and 309): many a reconstruction or attribution to
certain periods of monuments is solely hypothetical,
especially whilst in response to arbitrary restorations of
the inscriptions. the fervour to distribute as many fragments
as attainable one of the respective categories
(and who wouldn't sympathize with this desire?)
was sure to produce a few violence. however the low
number of in basic terms 9 unclassified fragments, as
opposed to the 3 hundred and eighty-four classified
ones, doesn't correspond to the evidence and tends
to create a misunderstanding by means of minimizing the factors
of uncertainty. the writer must have enlarged
this part significantly.
