dedicatory, magical, and everyday inscriptions on buildings, walls, metallic articles, vessels, and the like.

Graffiti are found in great quantity during the excavation of ancient and medieval cities and settlements in many countries of the world. They are found on almost all ancient Russian buildings; those in the cathedrals of St. Sophia in Kiev and Novgorod are especially interesting. Graffiti supplement the information gained from paleography and add to the research of the little-studied colloquial aspect of the language of an ancient people.
