Quality evaluation of facsimiles of Hebrew first temple period inscriptions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

The discipline of First Temple Period epigraphy (the study of writing) relies heavily on manually-drawn facsimiles (black and white images) of ancient inscriptions. This practice may unintentionally mix up documentation and interpretation. The article proposes a new method for evaluating the quality of the facsimile. It is based on a measure, comparing the image of the inscription to the registered facsimile. Some empirical results, supporting the methodology, are presented. The technique is also relevant to quality evaluation of other types of facsimiles and binarization in general.
