Abstract

This article present a survey of the principal state secretaries responsible for the publication of decrees and their erection on stone stelai, followed by a full analysis of the forms of the publication and erection provisions from the 5th century BC to the 2nd century AC. The study demonstrates that, during all periods, one sequence tended to predominate, but other sequences were also employed. Attention is paid to detail within the constituent elements of the formulations, and suggestions are made for altering restorations in several texts.
