abstract

This contribution examines the phenomenon of reuse of the epigraphic material carved on stone, produced by the civilization of Urartu. The methods of reuse during the centuries have been varied and are the subject of in-depth analysis in this contribution. From the analysed data, the greatest interest in Urartian inscriptions occurred during the initial phase of the Middle Ages, in particular starting from the 7th century AD, but the phenomenon seems to continue without interruption until the end of the 19th century, in the first great season of the archaeological discoveries of the area.
