Medium and message are deeply connected and influence each other. The book itself, the manuscript, the stone, the bronze or pottery manufacts can also be part of the content. Could the message have been written differently if there was another medium available? Might the choice of the medium also have influenced the production of writing errors, or can these errors be explained only by socio-graphic and environmental issues? The presentation will offer an overview of these topics, with a special focus on the languages of Pre-Roman Italy.
