Chapter Summary

It is a commonplace among archaeologists working in Greece that very often the single best source of non-excavated stone remains, both inscribed and sculpted, are the older churches, both those in the towns and villages, and those dotted around the countryside. The churches of Boiotia are no exception to the rule; a quick look through the lemmata of Inscriptiones Graecae vii immediately convinces even the most sceptical of this reality. This chapter brings together the material of this sort re-used in three churches situated at different locations in Central Boiotia, one in the city of Thívai (Thebai) itself, one which lies a short distance outside the village of Parapoúnyia (Lévktra) and the third in the now deserted village of Táteza; the last two places lie in the territory of ancient Thespiai.

Keywords: central Boiotia; Inscriptiones Graecae; modern churches
