This article for the first time systematically studies the surviving material from the oracle of Dodona for the subject of life course. It combines a quantitative approach ‒ with special attention to vocabulary and terminology ‒ with a careful selection of some telling and revealing instances of inscriptions that are translated and commented upon. In all, this study covers what is probably the best available random sample to imagine if not recreate the rich diversity of a population’s concerns in Graeco-Roman Antiquity.
