Section VII. Greek Inscriptions

The pagan inscriptions in Greek preserved in the collection are fewer in number than those in Latin, and they are gathered mostly on this wall, which bears the title "Greek inscriptions of every type". A reflection of the multi-ethnicity of ancient Rome, where Greek was also spoken, they are mostly sepulchral, are written both in prose and verse, and are mainly related to the common people, often communicating their trade or military profession. Some relate to the religious sphere.
