This chapter reports the general characteristics of the lettering. The peculiarities of individual letters are also explained. A list of inscriptions is then provided. In addition, the chapter offers the publication of fragments from the Athenian agora. The lettering of IG II2 513 and of II2 743 shares all the basic peculiarities: overlapping strokes, curving top of upsilon, and idiosyncratic placement of the diagonal of nu. However, the general character of the writing of these two pieces is uncharacteristically sloppy. The letters of Agora I 6731 (Agora XVI no. 189) are rather neatly made, but the sigma in line 3 has a top stroke that is horizontal.

Keywords:   IG II2 657, cutter, lettering, inscriptions, Athenian agora, strokes, upsilon, nu, Agora I 6731
