The purpose is to reassert the need for a methodologically rigorous interpretation of written sources, both literary and epigraphic, for those who deal with the reconstruction (in a broad sense) of ancient Greek civilisation. The understanding of a text (and of its author's intentions) is, in fact, based on its proper contextualisation according to its genre, the place and time of its composition, also in a constant dialogue with other types of sources (such as the archaeological sources); but, first of all, it is based on the absolute respect for its wording, in order to search for new – even unexpected – meanings.
