Editorial Reviews


'... this is a very worthwhile contribution to the field, which scholars of religious studies and late antiquity in general will find both fascinating and highly useful. I recommend its purchase for university libraries and departmental libraries in classics and religious studies.' David Neal Greenwood, Religious Studies Review

Book Description

Archaic Greeks honored gods by offering dedications, often inscribed with epigrams. This book reconstructs ancient encounters with such dedications, arguing that, while the rite of offering was represented verbally and visually, reading and viewing produced effects of religious ritual. Epigram and dedication memorialized the dedicator's rite by generating its reperformance.
