In this paper an automated information system is presented, that classifies scripts to corresponding writers using graphology. The methodology is based on the idea of creating a representative of each alphabet symbol in each script via proper fitting of all realizations of the specific symbol in it. The decision for writer identification is based on pair-wise comparisons of statistical quantities computed for all representatives. The system was applied to ancient Greek inscriptions of classical era which were correctly attributed to 6 different hands.
