Aleshire Center for the Study of Greek Epigraphy

The Sara B. Aleshire Center for the Study of Greek Epigraphy was founded within AHMA by the bequest of Dr. Aleshire, who received her PhD at Berkeley. The Center possesses a substantial research library in Greek epigraphy, an extensive collection of offprints especially in Greek religion, an archive of photographs of Greek inscriptions, and a large collection of squeezes. Its funds provide support for the travel and research of Berkeley faculty and graduate students in pursuit of topics in Greek epigraphy and also bring distinguished visitors to campus.
