Rex E. Wallace, "An Introduction to Wall Inscriptions from Pompeii and Herculaneum"
2005 | pages: 185 | ISBN: 086516570X | PDF | 2,1 mb

This edition is a representative selection of the various types of inscriptions, from political manifestos to gladiatorial announcements, found in the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. These inscriptions, painted and incised on the walls of public and private buildings, document aspects of daily life in the first century A.D. Inscriptions, particularly graffiti, were often written by less educated members of society, and as such provide a rare glimpse of common Latin.
