This monograph presents all the neo-Punic texts that have been published up to now. The author also mentions texts that are difficult or even unreadable. The intention of the work is to give an overview of these texts, which in many instances were published in less accessible journals or other editions, for everyone working in this or an adjacent field: Northwest-Semitic epigraphy, North-African society in the Roman period, or Old Testament studies. The short commentary on each text gives information about the reading adhered to by the editor and also about readings proposed by others in order to give one the chance to judge for oneself. In several instances, the author proposes new readings. As the readings and the meaning of the texts form the basis of this edition, it will also be useful for scholars working on Semitic linguistics in general.
