The main objective of this Web Site is to make a didactic guide for the Greek Epigraphy Course taught by us at La Laguna University. According to our objective, in the teaching section for this course we indicated the following parts: Objectives, Description, Work Plan, Evaluation, Programme, Basic Bibliography, and detailed Summary of the units of the programme. Likewise, the teaching section shows programmes for the other courses taught by the same professor.

It should be pointed out that some of the resources that have been included on the Web Site could be of interest to specialists and for the general public that could be interested in this discipline. These include a wide range of links for Greek Epigraphy and for Classic Studies, as well as a large general bibliography of Greek Epigraphy.

The epigraphic materials offered on this Web Site come from the Island of Crete, except for the corpus of inscriptions from the town of Ainos (Thrace/Turkey) and some other inscriptions offered in this Presentation section. There are inscriptions collected from the towns of Polyrhenia and Aptera (Crete), and some Cretan epigrams from the Hellenistic period.

Due to the specialisation of this Web Site in the Cretan epigraphy, we find it appropriate to include as support material the following documentation, illustrations and resources: a) a map of Crete in the Hellenistic period and other up-to-date maps of the different prefectures of the island (Chania, Rethymnon, Iraklion, Lasithi), b) a cronology of Crete, c) a photo album of the main old and new towns and villages in Crete, and d) different links about Crete in general, its old towns, and arqueological sites on the island. Likewise, in the Ainos (Thrace) section we include a map of Thrace and some useful links about the town of Ainos.

We have called this Web Site Kydonia, which is the name of the old town which was placed where Chania is situated nowadays. As a tribute to Chania, we collect a poem dedicated to this town by Kostas Chiotakis born in Chania. It reads as follows:

In order to conclude this section we show as an illustration a few photos of Greek inscriptions and its respective transcriptions.
