Touching tomb inscriptions from the ancients, in Greek and Latin, with English tranlsations. In the introduction Paul Shore explains that most books written in Antiquity deal with men. Women and children are ignored (besides a few exceptions). With inscriptions it's a different matter. Thanks to the widespread of litteracy in the Roman empire many 'common' folk wrote inscriptions on walls (the early graffity), on tombstones and on tablets in temples.

Rest Lightly includes 29 tomb inscriptions and an additional 13 from the 1st through the 7th centuries with transcriptions, annotations and verse translations into English. ISBN: 9780865163553, 0865163553. Join hearts with our ancient family as they celebrate the lives and mourn the deaths of their beloved children and friends, sisters and brothers, wives and lovers.

The Greek Anthology (Latin: Anthologia Graeca) is a collection of poems, mostly epigrams, that span the Classical and Byzantine periods of Greek literature. Most of the material of the Greek Anthology comes from two manuscripts, the Palatine Anthology of the 10th century and the Anthology of Planudes (or Planudean Anthology) of the 14th century.

I have both a physical copy of this book and the digital version. I must say I really love it. The book includes wonderful images of so many periods of writing, I can sit looking through them for hours, learning much, without even reading the accompanying text.

Crusader's Tomb, . 1. Nevertheless, despite your opinion of us, we are the only ones who matter. I would hazard a guess that the works of the great artists will be remembered and cherished long after all your bloody conquests are forgotten

Crusader's Tomb, . I would hazard a guess that the works of the great artists will be remembered and cherished long after all your bloody conquests are forgotten. The General, extremely angry, bit his lip. There was a spark, in his glacial eye.

Touching tomb inscriptions from the ancients, in Greek and Latin, with English tranlsations. The universal sentiments expressed in this anthology of inscriptions and epitaphs portray a poignant slice of ancient lives: their joy in the temporal life, their grief at its passing, and their faith in an eternal life of bliss. Rest Lightly includes 29 tomb inscriptions and an additional 13 plates/illustrations from the 1st through the 7th centuries with transcriptions, annotations and verse translations into English.

Join hearts with our ancient family as they celebrate the lives and mourn the deaths of their beloved children and friends, sisters and brothers, wives and lovers.

In the introduction Paul Shore explains that most books written in Antiquity deal with men. Women and children are ignored (besides a few exceptions). With inscriptions it's a different matter. Thanks to the widespread of litteracy in the Roman empire many 'common' folk wrote inscriptions on walls (the early graffity), on tombstones and on tablets in temples. They tell something about everyday life like in this excerpt of A Charioteers' Grave (P.Shore gives the entire translation):

We the members of his team 'Veneta',

Dedicate this altar to Fuscus,

...

Unblemished fame was yours.

You earned the praise of the race course

As you strove with many, fearing none,

...

There were also more 'philosophical' inscriptions like this one:

What are we

Or what do we say

At last this life is?

Just that a man has

Lived among us

And now is no more.

Just the stone

And the inscription remain,

And no other traces.

Now what

Is life?

It is nothing that

You should trouble yourself

To inquire about.

There are also thirteen black and white photo's of tombstones. Altogether a very interesting book.

I received the package in a timely manner but I am disappointed with the book. Although the condition is good I payed for like new and it has some damage to the front cover. Also the cover shown online is not the cover that I received also disappointed about that. Overall okay but not what I expected.
