Una bilingue greco-semitica (?) con regolamento sacrale da Dreros

Adalberto Magnelli, Giuseppe Petrantoni

Abstract


The inscription published by E. Van Effenterre [Inscriptions archaïques crétoises, BCH 70 (1946), 602-603, recently in A.M. Hakkert (ed.), Cretica Selecta, II Graeca et Romana, Amsterdam 1990, 478-479] is reconsidered on the assumption that it is a bilingual text written in Greek and Eteocretan. Above all, the Eteocretan text (line 1) could offer new interpretations and corroborate the intuition of Cyrus H. Gordon who recognized that a word belonged to North-West Semitic Language at the end of the same text.
