Dear history lovers! I called the article, not because he wanted to analyze the phenomenon of vandalism in history.
The purpose of the article - to show that the authors of the inscriptions are not carriers of some of the new culture, and the barbarians, which is far from the natives.
I do not believe that the carrier an advanced form of writing automatically becomes a mentor Aboriginal people.

Just goes to show how silly revisionist forces are!

Of course they were barbarians. A barbarian (to a Roman) was someone who was uncivilised - which literally means "not living in cities", which is the truth.

Smashing the nose from the face of a statue shows, well, defacement. The inherent beauty of the statue remains, but much of that beauty is robbed by the deliberate hacking off of the nose. Viewing that wanton destruction of the fine statue, is somehow more shocking than the thought of the items that were wholly destroyed, which we will never see.

Sorry for my English. It is hard for me to translate even with help of Googl. )

The natives are not necessarily barbarians.
Signatory pitcher is not necessarily the teacher.
Especially this is noticeable in Greece. 8-6 century BC.
Pitcher is created by master, and the inscription is made by savage.
