The present paper attends to analyse the different moods and tenses that
appear in the Greek inscriptions to express the order: imperative, subjuntive,
optative (in Elean), infinitive and indicative and the different value they may
have when they appear, one, two, three or even fourforms in the same ins¬
criptions: so, in the Law Code of Gortyn (imp., inf. and fut.ind.) or in the
Heraclean Tables (imp., inf., fut., and aorist indicative).
