INSCRIPTIONS.

VOL IV.

2 N7

“ Concerning Inscription-writing, my opinions are founded upon a diligent and critical inspection of what has been published by Sponius, Reinesius, Fabretti, Gruter, Muratorius, and Morcellus. The latter has written one of the most elegant and judicious books I ever read : and he moreover has published a volume of Inscriptions written by his own pen, in conformity to his own rules. None of the common classical writers are of much use; and indeed I'venture upon monumental phraseology, for which no example is to be found in their works."

So says Dr. Parr himself.

The Inscriptions are arranged according to the dates of

composition.
