  • Greek Epigraphy

    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.

  • Fossils In Greek Mythology

    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.

  • Greek Groping For God

    Groping For God: How the Greeks Anticipated the Coming of Jesus In John 12:20–21 we read about some Greeks who come to Philip and ask to see Jesus. Rumors and news about Christ have been circulating and these men are longing to make his acquaintance. The text says: “Now among those who went up to worship at the feast were some Greeks.
