Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which reviews the inscriptions reproduced by the squeezes and to serve as a tool for the further usage of Max van Berchem (MvB) squeezes. Although the method of study is identical to that which the author employed hitherto in the previous volumes of the Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum Palaestinae (CIAP), the sites of the inscriptions have not been introduced at the same length. In this book, when an adequate article introducing the site exists in the Encyclopaedia of Islam, the author has referred to it in the introduction to each site. When the site of the inscription is not indicated on the squeeze or is unidentifiable by other methods, the inscription appears under the title of Unidentified." In most cases such squeezes are also unreadable.

Keywords: Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum Palaestinae (CIAP); Max van Berchem (MvB) squeezes
