Editing Guidelines

- Text with letters of size 12 and line space of 1.5.
- All titles must be written in CAPITAL letters, ancient texts in italics.
- References must be footnotes [letters of size 10] using the "author-date" system and must include the author's surname, the year of edition and the number of the page (i.e. Stahlin 1924, 23). At the end of each paper there must be a detailed bibliography list, where references/footnotes are cited. Should there be more than one work of an author in the same year, a, b, c etc., the date must be followed [i.e. Arvanitopoulos 1911a, 1911b, 1911c...]. In case of collective studies reference must include all surnames [i.e. Agouridis - Zigouri - Rontiri 1991, 31].
- The numbers of the footnotes should precede punctuation marks.

Instructions for bibliographic referencing
