Abstract:

There are a number of Phoenician-Punic inscriptions from the Maltese Archipelago which have long been known and which proved to be very important for Phoenician-Punic studies, such as CIS I, 122 and 122 bis , which were crucial for the decipherment of the Phoenician script. Not since 1967 have such inscriptions undergone systematic study, and it is high time to revisit them in light of the advances made in Phoenician-Punic language and epigraphy, as well as because of the possible latent poetic structures embedded in them.
