Fritz Graf explores the ways in which epigraphy contributes to our understanding of Greek divinities. He focuses on the corpora of inscriptions from two cities in particular, Priene in Asia Minor and Gonnoi in Thessaly. He treats several themes: sanctuaries, priests and priestesses; sacred laws; cult epithets (or epicleses) and theophoric names; the rare cult of the Kouretes; festivals and private interactions with the gods

Keywords:   Inscriptions, Priene, Gonnoi, Sanctuaries, Priests and priestesses, Sacred laws, Theophoric names, Epicleses, Kouretes, Festivals
