 DESCRIPTION
spacer
This book provides a general survey of all the inscriptional material in the sanskrit, Prakrit, and modern Indo-Aryan languages, including donative, dedicatory, panegyric ritual, and literary texts carved on stone, metal and other materials. This material comprises many thousands of documents dating from a range of more than two millennia, found in and the neighbouring nations of south Asia, as well as in many parts of southeast, central and East Asia. The incriptions are written, for the most part, in the Brahmi and Kharosthi scripts and their many varieties and derivatives.
