Abstract

This paper discusses gravestones with Georgian inscriptions discovered during the archaeological excavations at the cemetery of the medieval city of Dmanisi. Although the tombstones with epitaphs were discovered in the 1970-1980s, this paper is the first typological, paleographical, and art historical study of the material.
