Greek inscriptions in the Jordan Museum

Abstract : Recently built in the new downtown area of Ras al-Ayn in Amman, the Jordan Museum houses a selection of Greek inscriptions discovered on different sites, from Gadara in the north to Petra in the south. Some of these texts are well known to specialists. Others are unpublished. The aim of this article is to provide the researchers and the visitors of the museum with the edition of a collection that reflects the wealth of the Jordanian epigraphical heritage. Our work is also a contribution to the programme of the Greek and Latin Inscriptions in Jordan ('Inscriptions de la Jordanie'), which has received the renewed accreditation of the DoA and which is a part of the IGLS project ('Inscriptions grecques et latines de la Syrie', 'Syrie' being understood here in its ancient meaning of 'Near East').
