    Book

    “Inscriptiones Segestanae. Le iscrizioni greche e latine di Segesta”, edizione, traduzione e commento di C. Ampolo e D. Erdas, Edizioni della Normale, Pisa, 2019.
    The volume offers the critical edition of the Greek and Latin inscriptions of ancient Segesta, in their historical and archaeological context, with a commentary, a translation, images and plates. It includes 54 already known and new inscriptions and an appendix of 6 epigraphic texts concerning Segesta and its history. Many among them resulted from the excavations of the Scuola Normale in the Segestan agora, and they are part of the SAET project on historical and epigraphic studies in Sicily. The entire corpus allows us to approach in a new manner the Hellenistic and Roman polis, its history, institutions, town planning and, above all, the ancient Segestans, also offering a contribution to the knowledge of ancient Sicily and beyond.
