Personal Names in the Phoenician and Punic Inscriptions
In the 130 years of study in the Phoenician-Punic corpus of textual material prior to this study’s publication, no comprehensive catalog of the personal names has ever been prepared. The impressive personal name studies of other Semitic tongues beg for a companion in the Phoenician-Punic area. The study presented here aims to fill that need.
Incorporating all the known published Phoenician, Punic, and Neo-Punic inscriptions available at the time of this volume’s publishing, Chapter I lists the relevant bibliographies of those inscriptions. A key to the Phoenician-Punic inscriptions, utilizing publication symbols or titles of inscriptions, has been adopted for use in recording name occurrences. The second chapter catalogs the legible or restorable names listed in Hebrew alphabetic order together with reference to every occurrence. The foreign names are listed separately for convenience in locating them. Chapter III brings together the majority of those names which are homogeneous by structure or type. Finally, in Chapter IV, a glossary containing every element (with brief commentary and bibliography where possible) is given. Under each element are listed the names, including the variant and misspelled examples in which the given element occurs. Instances of vocalized names from other language sources conclude the glossary entries.
