Definitions

The used values belong to two different levels:

1. Values of general position, which are only useable with objects with a natural or intuitively obvious orientation – generally, such objects are described as they were orientated during usage: rock walls, stelae, vessels, articles of habiliment, statuettes, etc. Some values are only useful for certain object shapes (e.g., right and left or front and back can not be applied to rotationally symmetric objects, "inside" and "outside" only concern containers and helmets).

top top or upper area
bottom bottom or lower area
centre central area
left-hand side left-hand side or area
right-hand side right-hand side or area
side lateral area
front front or face side, upper surface
back back side, lower surface
inside on vessels and helmets
outside on vessels and helmets

Note that in some cases, the inscription itself may determine its own position, e.g. front = side with the inscription on it, on objects whose specific purpose was bearing the inscription (slabs, plaques).

2. Values for parts of vessels: neck, wall, shoulder, bottom, foot; cf. the following drawing:
