New Punic Punditry

Main Article Content

Robert Kerr



With the long awaited editio princeps of a portion of the Roman-era neo-Punic texts from Henchir Maktar (Tunisia), this large and fairly homogeneous corpus of primarily dedicatory and funerary inscriptions is finally being made available to the scholarly world in a modern publication with serviceable photographs. Although many of these texts have in the meantime been studied extensively, most recently by Jongeling (2008), this edition is—due to what many have in the past considered the cacographic state of these epigraphs—a most welcome and indispensable addition to the toolkit of philologists, epigraphists, historians, and theologians.
