    • 2 Pages

    Dr. Ng, Thank you for your insights about Greek Epigraphy. I am very glad to hear from you that you are an epigrapher. I need to learn about it from you. Inscriptions were generally moved from their steady place with a reason of reusing the items in other constructions, and most probably, because of some catastrophic phenomena, such as earthquakes, battles, fires, and rebels, inscriptions had damages, and so the walls were reused with no historical reason. Historians need to interpret on inscriptions to make a connection between historical events that the interpretations should reflect the reality with the primary scholars’ texts.

One example of this type of art would be Lady of Auxerre, 650-625 BCE (Fig 2-15). This statue was one of the earliest limestone statuettes of a goddess or maiden.

    The Significance of Fossils in Greek Mythology Archaeologists believe that the Greeks used uncovered prehistoric fossils as the foundation for their Greek myths. Therefore, it is reasonable that the Deinotherium Giganteum’s bones found in Crete influenced the story of the cyclops.

This…

So these came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and asked him, ‘Sir, we wish to see Jesus.’” While we might think that this is somewhat surprising,…
