"This volume (hereafter ACADE) contains an edition and philological analysis of 154 metrical, or supposedly metrical, inscriptions dated to the 7th-5th centuries BCE and associated with offerings ( ) in Attic shrines or consecrated by Athenians in sanctuaries outside the region. A useful companion to the Attic tituli dedicatorii in Peter A. Hansen's Carmina Epigraphica Graeca (1983-1989), ACADE has the advantage of making available images of most of the inscribed objects and, more often than not, useful close-up photographs of the texts. [...] After the publication in 1878 of Georg Kaibel's ground-breaking Epigrammata Graeca ex lapidibus conlecta, for more than a century scholars have collected ancient Greek verse inscriptions and improved the editions of them. Today, a pressing need is for commentaries of these important documents, and Kaczko's ACADE is a significant contribution toward filling this gap."
