‘There are limits to what epigraphy can reveal.’ Justify the statement with suitable arguments.

‘There are limits to what epigraphy can reveal’. This statement can be justified by the following arguments :

  1. Sometimes the words are engraved in very light colours. Therefore, it is very hard to decipher them.
  2. Sometimes the inscriptions are damaged and hence, many words inscribed are lost.
  3. It is always not easy to find out the real meaning of the inscriptions. Sometimes the things are stated in relevance to a particular situation or time.
  4. Thousands of inscriptions have been found. But not all of them can be translated or understood.
