Description: This book collects all known Jewish inscriptions from the Graeco-Roman period (up to c.700 CE), in all languages (Greek, Latin, Aramaic, Hebrew) in Eastern Europe. It provides the texts of the inscriptions with English translations together with full bibliographies, discussions and indexes. The previous collection was published in 1936-50 and has been superseded by the discovery of more inscriptions. Over half the inscriptions included in this new collection were not in the former. Volume 1 covers the regions Pannonia, Dalmatia, Moesia, Thrace, Macedonia, Achaea, Crete, and the North Coast of the Black Sea. It includes appendices on inscriptions considered medieval and inscriptions not considered Jewish as well as a bibliography, a concordance with the former collection, indexes and maps.
