Chapter Summary

This chapter examines Parkers categories for determining the ritual significance of a sacred law vis-à-vis the Hekatompedon Inscription, indicating that our inscription can qualify or at least partially qualify in two of his categories. Visually and textually, the Hekatompedon Inscription is setting a pattern. Its two marks of punctuation serve as a visual metaphor regulating the flow of the inscription in two different ways, but together governing the timing of its actions very much in the manner of an inventory. The chapter attempts to answer the question: what is the Hekatompedon Inscription but the corollary may be easier: how does a sacred law look. Ideally, it looks like the Hekatompedon Inscription.

Keywords: Hekatompedon Inscription; punctuation; Robert Parker; sacred law
