History and Bibliography of the Inscriptions
The first study devoted to the history of the inscriptions of Aphrodisias was a small volume by J. M. R. Cormack, Notes on the History of the Inscribed Monuments of Aphrodisias (Reading, 1955), written while he was preparing the inscriptions recorded by his teacher, William Calder, for publication (as MAMA 8). The relevance of such material was illuminated by the work of Louis Robert; this was reflected in the discussion of visitors to Caria in J. and L. Robert, La Carie II, and to Aphrodisias in Hellenica 13, 109-16; the background to one group of texts was set out by J. M. Reynolds, A&R Appendix II, 147-8. Since then, new material has emerged; what follows is an account of the current state of our knowledge.
In the Byzantine period, probably in the ninth century, at least two, possibly three epigrams inscribed at the site were included in the Greek Anthology (Anthologia Palatina 9.704, 16.35, and perhaps 7.690); see H. Beckby, Anthologia Graeca (Munich, 1957) I.2, 75 ff. They may may have been transcribed from the stone by a Byzantine copyist; but it is also possible that they circulated separately within the literary tradition.
William Sherard (See DNB entry), while British Consul at Smyrna, visited the site on two occasions; his own and related notebooks are in the British Library, bound as BL Add. 10101-2. Understanding of his copies has been transformed by the work of Michael Crawford; see: M. H. Crawford, Diocletian's jigsaw puzzles: autopsy and progress, in T. P. Wiseman (ed.), Classics in Progress (London: The British Academy, 2002), 145-163 and M. H. Crawford, William Sherard and the Prices Edict, Revue Numismatique 159 (2003), 83-107.
1705, 19 to 23 August
Sherard visited several sites, including Geira/Aphrodisias, accompanied by Rev. John Tisser, Mr. Cutts Lockwood, Mr. John Lethieullier and Dr. Antonio Picenini. Picenini kept a diary (BL Add. 6269, ff 38-49) and made copies (BL Add. 10102, ff. 12-53; Aphrodisias 13-36); he also transcribed the copies made by Tisser (10102, ff. 53-81, Aphrodisias 53-56v, 61v-68, 71-77). Sherard made some copies of his own (BL Add. 10101 ff 9-21, Aphrodisias 9-16v); he also transcribed the copies made by Picenini (ff. 22-67, Aphrodisias 24-48v). The resultant MS (BL Add. 10101, ff. 9-78v), is referred to by Boeckh as Cod. Ask 1. Picenini also gave a copy of the inscriptions he had copied to E. Spanheim, the Prussian Ambassador to London, and this is now in the Staatsbibliothek, Berlin (MS Spanhem. 11); this was also consulted by Boeckh in the preparation of Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum II.2.
Sherard went on an expedition around June 20 with Rev. Dr. S. Lisle, (BL Add. 10101 ff. 68-78); he did not visit Aphrodisias. He set off on a second expedition, from 5-25 July, with Dr. Lisle, Mr. Vandervecht, and J.C., probably Jos. Clotterboke (10101, 119-131v, Cod. Ask. 3) as well as Bernard Mould (whose diary is BL Add. 65412); this took him to Aphrodisias on 6 July, and almost all the inscriptions copied on that expedition are from there (10101, 120-131).
Picenini's and Sherard's copies were used by E. Chishull, Antiquitates Asiaticae Christianam Aeram antecedentes (London, 1728). Sherard's papers were consulted in London by Karl Müller on behalf of Boeckh, for the preparation of Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum II.2: see K. Müller, Briefwechsel zwischen August Boeckh und Karl Otfried Müller (Leipzig, 1883).
1750, 1-3 October
Robert 'Palmyra' Wood (See DNB entry) visited the site and copied some twenty texts; these copies were never published, but are all of texts which have been published elsewhere. The papers are now in the possession of the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies http://www.sas.ac.uk/icls/Hellenic/, who kindly allowed us to study and copy them. See C. A. Hutton, The travels of Palmyra Wood in 1750-51, Journal of Hellenic Studies 30 (1927), 102-128, 119; L. Robert, Hellenica 13, 114.
Domenico Sestini spent three days at Aphrodisias; his copies were published, Sestini , Viaggi e opusculi diversi di Domenico Sestini (Berlin, 1807), and used by Boeckh in Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum II.2.
J-P. Gandy-Deering (See DNB entry), an architect employed by the Society of Dilettanti, visited Aphrodisias. His copies were published by William Leake, Inscriptions from Aphrodisias, Transactions of the Royal Society of Literature (1843), 232-45, 288-303, and republished by W. H. Waddington, Inscriptions grecques et latines (LBW) We are very grateful to the late Madame Jeanne Robert for the gift of Deering's copies, which can now be consulted on the web at http://insaph.kcl.ac.uk/notebooks/deering/
Otto von Richter visited the site; see the edition of his papers by J. P. G. Ewers, Wallfahrten in Morgenlande (Berlin, 1822). His epigraphic copies were published by J. V. Francke, Griechische und lateinische Inscriften, gesammelt von Otto Fr.Richter (Berlin, 1830), and used by Boeckh in Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum II.2. See L.Robert, Hellenica 13, 113.
H.P. Borrell (See DNB entry), resident in Smyrna, obtained an inscription from Aphrodisias, a copy of which he sent to Boeckh: see D. Whitehead, From Smyrna to Stewartstown: a numismatist's epigraphic notebook, Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy 99c (1999), 73-117, 104-5
C.-F. M. Texier copied inscriptions, incidentally to his surveying and drawing of buildings at Aphrodisias; these were published in volume III of Texier , Description de l'Asie Mineure faite par ordre du Gouvernement Français, de 1833 à 1837, et publiée par le Ministère de l'Instruction publique. Ouvrage Dédié au Roi (Paris, 1839-49).
A. Boeckh used copies by Picenini, Sherard, Sestini, von Richter, H. P. Borrell, and others sent by D. Raoul-Rochette (see L. Robert, Hellenica 13, 131) and some unnamed correspondents in publishing the inscriptions of Aphrodisias in volume II.2 of A. Boeckh et al., Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum (Berlin, 1835).
Sir Charles Fellows (See DNB entry) visited Aphrodisias; his copies tend to be unreliable compared, for example, to those of Sherard. He published them very promptly, in C. Fellows, An Account of Discoveries in Lycia (London, 1841); they were used in the addenda published in CIG II.3. Of these a page is preserved among the papers of Samuel kept in the Greek and Roman Department of the British Museum (to whom I am grateful for access). Page 515 has been annotated (in pencil), 'The hand of Sir C. Fellows'. It contains the transcriptions of two texts headed 'Priene' (P.Le Bas, W.H.Waddington, Voyage archéologique en Grèce et en Asie Mineure, fait pendant les années 1834 et 1844 (Paris 1847-1877) 205, Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum 2904), and then the heading 'Aphrodisias', followed by the transcriptions of MAMA 8, 550 and 564 (published by Fellows as nos. 48, 47).
H. Loew, naturalist (see J. and L. Robert, La Carie II, 59) visited the site. His copies were edited and published by J. Franz, Inscriptiones Graecae, Annali dell'Istituto di Correspondenza Archeologica 19 (1847), 105-31, referred to in CIG IV in 1856, and and republished by W. H. Waddington, LBW, in 1870.
J. K. Bailie (See DNB entry) visited the site. In an account of his visit, J. K. Bailie, Researches amongst the inscribed monuments of the Graeco-Roman Era in certain ancient sites of Asia Minor, Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy 21 (1843), 11-65, with 76-86, 32, he states clearly that he copied 'only fifteen or twenty of these records'; of the forty-one inscriptions which he subsequently published, J. K. Bailie, Fasciculus Inscriptionum Graecarum (London and Dublin, 1846), at least twenty are clearly from earlier publications; for his unreliability, see L. Robert, Hellenica 13, 152-4. He also used copies supplied to him by H. P. Borrell; see D. Whitehead, From Smyrna to Stewartstown: a numismatist's epigraphic notebook, Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy 99c (1999), 73-117.
A. Boeckh republished the inscriptions found by Fellows in volume II.3 of A. Boeckh et al., Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum (Berlin, 1843).
Philippe Le Bas copied inscriptions, published in 1870 by W. H. Waddington, as Le Bas and Waddington, Inscriptions grecques et latines .
Edward Falkener (See DNB entry) copied inscriptions, which were published by W. Henzen, Inscriptiones Graecae, Annali dell'Istituto di Correspondenza Archeologica 24 (1852), 115-37.
W. H. Waddington copied inscriptions: the copies made by him and by Le Bas in 1843 were published by Waddington in 1870 in LBW.
E. Curtius and A. Kirchhoff published Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum IV, (Berlin, 1856), including material from Aphrodisias copied by Loew
W. H. Waddington published inscriptions copied by himself and Philippe Le Bas as Le Bas and Waddington, Inscriptions grecques et latines receuillies en Grèce et en Asie Mineure (Paris, 1870); he also republished inscriptions not included in CIG IV, published by Franz, Bailie, Henzen and Leake.
K. G. Anthopoulos recorded four texts formerly from Aphrodisias but by then at Pirlibey, and published them, Anthopoulos , Homeros III (1875), 80; it was presumably he who sent a squeeze of one of these texts to A. Papadopoulos-Kerameus, who published it in Athenische Mitteilungen 5 (1880), 340, no. 12.
Auguste Choisy, an architect and engineer, copied inscriptions, which were published by Georges Perrot, Inscriptions de Carie, Revue Archeologique 32 (1876), 39-42, no.45.
W. M. Ramsay (See DNB entry) copied inscriptions, and published them in Ramsay , Cities and Bishoprics of Phrygia (Oxford, 1897)
J. R. S. Sterrett copied inscriptions, and published them: Sterrett , Papers of the American School at Athens 2 (1883-4, published 1888), 11-13.
P. Paris and M. Holleaux copied inscriptions, and published them: Paris and Holleaux, Inscriptions de Carie. I. Aphrodisias, Bulletin de Correspondance Hellenique 9 (1885), 324-48.

Deschamps spent four hours at Aphrodisias copied inscriptions, and published them: Doublet and Deschamps, Inscriptions de Carie, Bulletin de Correspondance Hellenique 14 (1890), 610-14; see G. Deschamps, Sur les routes de l'Asie (Paris, 1894), and J and L Robert, La Carie II, 66-7.
O. Liermann republished a substantial group of inscriptions from the site in Analecta epigraphica et agonistica, Dissertationes Philologicae Halenses X (Halle, 1889).
W. Kubitschek and W. Reichel spent sixteen days at Aphrodisias, and also recorded texts at Bingeç and Pirlibey. They published sixteen of the c. 200 texts which they copied and or squeezed, Kubitschek and Reichel , Inscriptiones Graecae, Anzeiger der kaiserlicher Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Wien (1893), 100-3. Some of their copies were used by L. Robert, Les gladiateurs dans l'Orient grec nos. 158, 159, 160, 161. J. M. R. Cormack published a further selection, Inscriptions from Aphrodisias , in 1964. Cormack also used their notebooks in his preparation of MAMA 8. Their notebooks (one by Reichel and two by Kubitschek) and squeezes are kept by the Kleinasiatische Kommission in Vienna, to whom we are most grateful for access.
W. R. Paton (See DNB entry) visited the site with a grant from the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies; he published the texts which he copied in the area in an article W. R. Paton, Sites in Eastern Karia and South Lydia, Journal of Hellenic Studies 20 (1900), 57-80.
P. Gaudin excavated at Aphrodisias; see M. Collignon, Notes sur les fouilles executées à Aphrodisias par M. Paul Gaudin, Comptes rendus des séances de l’année de l’Académie des inscriptions et belles-lettres (1904), 703-11. Gaudin copied and squeezed over 200 inscriptions; these were published from his records by T. Reinach, Inscriptions d'Aphrodisias, Revue des Etudes Grecques 19 (1906), 79-150, 205-98; Reinach also consulted the Kubitschek and Reichel records. Gaudin's squeezes are now in the possession of the Sorbonne, to whom we are very grateful for access and photographs.
First Gaudin, and, after he was called away, G. Mendel excavated at Aphrodisias; see Mendel , Seconde note sur les fouilles executées à Aphrodisias par M. Paul Gaudin. Campagne de 1905, Comptes rendus des séances de l’année de l’Académie des inscriptions et belles-lettres (1906), 158-84, and M. Collignon, Les fouilles d'Aphrodisias, Revue de l’art ancien et moderne 19 (1906), 33-50. Mendel published two inscriptions with his publication of statues found at Aphrodisias, Mendel , Musées Imperiaux Ottomans. Catalogue des sculptures grecques, romaines et byzantines (Constantinople, 1914), and passed several more on to H. Grégoire who published them as well as other, previously published, texts, in Recueil des inscriptions grecques-chrétiennes d'Asie Mineure (Paris, 1922).
A. Boulanger excavated at Aphrodisias, principally in the area of the Hadrianic Baths; see A. Boulanger, Notes sur les fouilles executées en 1913 à Aphrodisias, Comptes rendus des séances de l’année de l’Académie des inscriptions et belles-lettres (1914), 33-50. He left two notebooks; one, A, contains, pp 1-9, inscriptions copied and mostly already published, by Mendel; pp 39-47 transcriptions of 12 inscriptions from the Baths already published by Reinach; pp. 49-65 copies, by Boulanger, of 29 inscriptions discovered by Mendel in 1905; pp. 67-78 26 texts found in 1913, with the date of each find. B contains fair copies of the inscriptions found in 1905 and 1913, clearly prepared with a view to publication. We are very grateful to the late Madame Jeanne Robert for the gift of these notebooks. One text was published from these by B. Haussoullier, Revue de Philologie 44 (1920), 72-74. More texts were published from Boulanger's notebooks by L. Robert: Inscriptions grecques d'Asie Mineure. II. Inscription d'Aphrodisias, Anatolian Studies Buckler (Manchester, 1939), 227-48 (= L.Robert, Opera Minora Selecta, I-VII (Amsterdam 1969-1990) I, 611-32) and Épigrammes d'Aphrodisias in Hellenica 4, 127-135. Robert also cited others in: Robert , Études Anatoliennes (Paris, 1937), 542 n. 2; Robert , Hellenica 1 (Paris, 1940), 51; Inscriptions d'Aphrodisias, (1966), 394, n. 1, and 417.

W. M. Calder, with L. I. Higby and A. B. Birnie, recorded inscriptions at Aphrodisias as part of the Monumenta Asiae Minoris Antiqua project. A second expedition, by W.H. Buckler and L. Robert, was planned for 1935, but was prevented by the political situation. One text was published by Calder , Silius Italicus in Asia, Classical Review 49 (1935), 216-7; one was sent to L. Robert by W. H. Buckler, and published in Les gladiateurs dans l'Orient grec , no. 156; another was published by J. M. R. Cormack, Epigraphic evidence for the water supply of Aphrodisias, The Annual of the British School at Athens 49 (1954), 9-10. All the texts which the 1934 expedition copied were eventually published, after the deaths of Buckler and Calder, by J. M. R. Cormack.
An Italian expedition directed by G. Jacopi, excavated at Aphrodisias. G. Jacopi's publication, Gli scavi della missione archeologica italiana in Afrodisiade, Monumenti antichi. 38 (1939-40), 85ff includes the inscriptions they found.
M. Squarciapino republished a series of inscriptions of Aphrodisian sculptors from Aphrodisias and elsewhere, La Scuola di Afrodisia (Rome, 1943)
1946 and 1947
J. and L. Robert published La Carie II: Le Plateau de Tabai (Paris, 1954), drawing extensively on Aphrodisian material.

All the texts which the 1934 MAMA expedition had copied were published, after the deaths of Buckler and Calder, by J. M. R. Cormack, Monumenta Asiae Minoris Antiqua, VIII (Manchester, 1962). For a full and critical analysis of this volume see L. Robert, Hellenica 13 (Paris, 1965), esp. 109-238.
An inscription from Aphrodisias now in the Vienna Museum was published by Rudolf Noll, Die griechischen und lateinischen Inschriften der Wiener Antikensammlung, Vienna (1962, republished 1986).
J. M. R. Cormack transcribed copies made by Hirschfeld, Kubitschek and Reichel from the archives in Vienna, as Cormack , Inscriptions from Aphrodisias, The Annual of the British School at Athens 59 (1964), 16-29; this provoked a very full analysis by L. Robert, Inscriptions d'Aphrodisias, Antiquité Classique 36 (1966), 337-432 (= L. Robert, Opera Minora Selecta, VI, 1-56).
