Jean-Sébastien Balzat

Researcher
Faculty of Classics

I am a classicist and historian interested in the inscriptions and history of the Graeco-Roman cities. I have mainly published on ancient Greece and Asia Minor. I am at the present an editor of the Lexicon of Greek Personal Names and I have recently started working on the Greek and Latin inscriptions of Syria, Palestine and the Trans-Euphratic regions for volume VI of LGPN. I also contribute to the journal Année Epigraphique for which I collect, translate and comment new epigraphic discoveries of the Roman province of Asia (Aegean Turkey) yearly. I am currently working on a book about naming practices in the Greek cities of the Roman period.
