Two pieces from the epigraphic museum

This is the earliest graffiti from the Athenian acropolis, dating to the 8th century BC and running in the so called Boustrophedon style, i.e. first line from left to right, second line from right to left and so on.

Here you see a Kleroteria, this kind of machine has been previously described in this post.
