reading inscriptions

hi, can anyone remember seeing decent readable greek inscription pics on the net. i've seen lots of pics of inscription/papyrus fragments, but i'm looking for whole clauses or longer on inscriptions, something you can actually read.

a while ago i put together this little powerpoint thing of the 1 readable inscription i found: alexander's dedication to athena... see 1st link here:


i know the powerpoint thing is pretty old and bad but the inscription is at least readable, and so i was wondering if there were other pics out there with as good/better quality for actually reading greek in the original. thanks :) :)

I first saw the picture in C&P, A New Introduction to Greek, notorious for being too terse:
Though the picture is omitted from the preview at amazon shop.

I've once posted Greek inscriptions site:

A lot of inscriptions press copied on thick papers.

I hope it helps.
