The Format of the Inscription

Here we have  a hypothetical reconstruction of the left part of the Diogenes inscription using empty, uninscribed blocks as placeholders according to Konrad Berner.

Here we can see the seven courses of the inscription on the stoa wall. The Ten-line-column (TLC) Writings occupied the central course of the inscription, that is to say the fourth from the top and fourth from the bottom, with the three courses carrying Old Age above and the Fourteen-line-column Letters (to Antipater and Dionysius), Maxims, Physics, and Ethics below.
