Just Launched: The Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams (DBBE)

The Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams (DBBE)
The Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams (DBBE) is an ongoing project that makes available textual and contextual data of book epigrams (or: metrical paratexts) from medieval Greek manuscripts (seventh to fifteenth century).
We define book epigrams as poems in books and on books: their subject is the very manuscript in which they are found. They record, react to, or motivate the production, the contents and the use of the book. Further explanation of this definition is to be found on the Help page.
Objectives of the database are to:
  • collect textual material that was hitherto dispersed over various publications, chiefly catalogues;
  • clarify the manuscript context of the epigrams;
  • provide ways to search the corpus and detect affinities between epigrams and manuscripts;
  • offer reliable editions that respect the uniqueness of each specific manuscript.
The user can access the database by searching or browsing through three categories in the menu above:
epigrams as they occur in one specific manuscript. The data collected here is mainly derived from descriptive catalogues as well as other related publications (such as articles, editions etc). In certain cases it is the result of manuscript consultation conducted by members of our team.
corrected versions of the poems, often regrouping several similar occurrences. This part of the database is still very provisional. The types are meant to evolve into a corpus of editions over the next years.
manuscript identifications are given according to city, library, name of the collection, shelf nr.: it basically follows the system of the Pinakes database.
A beta version of the database has been released on 1 September, 2015. Please, bear in mind that this version is still work in progress. All users are invited to send their feedback with corrections, suggestions etc. at: dbbe@ugent.be.
We are keen for DBBE to be used in the widest possible range of educational and research contexts. For information on how to cite or refer to DBBE, see the Help page.

A Bibliography of Semitic Linguistics (1940-2012) By Gregorio del Olmo Lete

[First posted in AWOL 15 October 2014, updated (new URLs) 15 December 2015]

A Bibliography of Semitic Linguistics (1940-2012)
Gregorio del Olmo Lete
It seems obligatory at the beginning of this bibliography to set out its limits and justify its objectives. The aim of the bibliography is to collect and arrange systematically only those studies directly or mainly related to subjects of Semitic linguistics, namely, those centered on the study of languages and their phonological, morphological, syntactic and semantic constituents, from both the comparative perspective(close and distant relationship) and the immanent perspective (grammar and lexicon). Consequently, all other studies dealing with the history of the societies which use or used those languages and with everything that is built on them (socio-political history, literature, religion and ‘culture’ in general), remain excluded.

This limitation may seem impossible or at the very least without justification and minimalist, in some way resorting to ‘formalism’, giving up the basic element, whose development a language has to perform, namely, the shaping of a universe of social representations, which generates a particular way of communication and creativity. One could say that it means abandoning the ‘context’ in which every linguistic formulation has its meaning, being at the same time its outcome. But we cannot forget, in answer to such an objection, that our purpose has a fixed point of support: it is constructed exclusively on ‘texts’ as the products of language, which are the reference point for testing and validating results. And if it is true that ‘the proposition is the world’ (Wittgenstein), then linguistic analysis is the basis for the understanding of any representation.

Our intention is to provide specialist information that arranges and classifies as much as possible the vast amount of data constantly presented by the general bibliography on Semitic languages and cultures. In this way, access to such information will be made easier, with better focus on the more important issues of research. At the same time we intend to collect the information and classify it in a uniform manner, in this way making it possible to compare across languages the research being carried out within the various languages, since such research often ignores other languages.

The first installment is devoted to general topics in respect of the Semitic family as a whole. In this connexion, studies dealing with its relationship to other linguistic groups and families (Nostratic, Hamitic or Afro-Asiatic) will be taken into account in as much as they bear on the study of Semitics proper. Here, Nostratic is taken in its wider meaning, as used today among Indo-European scholars. In order to avoid any prejudgements, in successive installments we will offer linguistic bibliographies for each Semitic language as well as for each Semitic language family according to its name, without attempting to decide on its suitability or incorporate it within a particular preferred classification. This is precisely one of the problems the present bibliographical tool aims to address. The series will include the following headings: [East and North Semitic], Akkadian, Eblaite, Amorite, Ugaritic, [Northwest Semitic/Canaanite],Phoenician, Hebrew, Aramaic/Syriac, South Semitic, Old (Epigraphic) North and South Arabian, Modern South-Arabian, Arabic and Ethiopic, both classic and modern, the pertinent dialectal variations being included under the appropriate heading.The steady general bibliographical references are ordered, to easy their use, according to titles instead of authors, which may vary along the years. Otherwise, the alphabetic order according to author’s name is followed.

The cross-references to the individual bibliographies of each of these languages and groups of languages are essential for extracting full information on a specific linguistic issue at either a general or a comparative level. In the first installment, any comparison of (at least two) languages is noted. When the title specifies the language compared, the item will be repeated in the corresponding bibliography (“Comparative Level”). Unlike the other topics, where the aim is to be exhaustive, the Bibliography on Semitic lexicography has been kept within less strict limits, otherwise the task would have been endless.

Studies or references to particular lexemes have not been recorded in the installment devoted to Common Semitics, unless they bear on comparative issues. In principle, only treatments of ‘roots’ or ‘semantic fields’ have been taken into account. Nevertheless, the criterion has not always been applied stringently, since often it is difficult to draw the line between particular and comparative treatments. In the other installments, devoted to particular languages, concrete lexemes also have been recorded, although in a non exhaustive way. In any case, this section of the bibliography has to be taken as merely indicative and perfunctory, and reference to up-to-date lexicographic records is unavoidable. A thorough lexicographical entry should even include reference to the main studies on editions and commentaries on the texts, where the particular lexeme appears, but such textual studies have not been included. As for book reviews, only the most significant that appeared in the last years have been listed.

Paulys Realencyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft
At Wikisource
Paulys Realencyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft (RE) ist die umfangreichste Enzyklopädie zum Altertum. Sie wurde ab 1890 von Georg Wissowa (1859–1931) herausgegeben und 1980 abgeschlossen. Sie führte die von August Friedrich Pauly (1796–1845) begründete Real-Encyclopädie der classischen Alterthumswissenschaft in alphabetischer Ordnung (1837–1864) fort und war als komplette Neubearbeitung konzipiert. Bis heute gilt die RE als Standardwerk der Altertumswissenschaft. Viele Artikel aus den ersten Bänden dieser Enzyklopädie sind mittlerweile gemeinfrei. Möglichst viele Artikel sollen hier sukzessive mit Hilfe von Scans digitalisiert werden.

Bis jetzt wurden 20.148 Stichwörter erfasst, darunter 2.429 bloße Verweisungen. Eine vollständige Liste der bisher transkribierten Artikel gibt die Kategorie:Paulys Realencyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft.

Just Launched: Nikephoros Bibliography of Sport in Antiquity

Nikephoros Bibliography of Sport in Antiquity
This freely accessible bibliographical tool is based on the annual bibliographies of ancient sport, collected and published in the journal Nikephoros by Wolfgang Decker from 1986 to 2011 and by Zinon Papakonstantinou and Sofie Remijsen since 2012. The data were entered in the database over the last three years by student assistants at the universities of Leuven and Mannheim.

To increase functionality, we added links to related material: books are linked to individual chapters and reviews; journal articles and reviews to online pdf’s when available. To enable you to find all relevant entries, we have also started adding English keywords to all titles.

Like all databases, this tool represents work-in-progress: we invite all interested scholars to cooperate, for example by suggesting additional keywords for particular entries or by alerting us of new publications and missing titles via the contact form. We welcome all feedback.

Open Access Monograph Series: Les Cahiers «Égypte Nilotique et Méditérranéenne»

[First posted in AWOL 5 July 201, updated 16 December 2015]

CENiM – Les Cahiers «Égypte Nilotique et Méditérranéenne»
ISSN 2102-6637

Édités par Christiane Zivie-Coche,  Offrandes, rites et rituels dans les temples d’époques ptolémaïque et romaine. Actes de la journée d’études de l’équipe EPHE (EA 4519) « Égypte ancienne : Archéologie, Langue, Religion » Paris, 27 juin 2013
Édités par Christiane Zivie-Coche
L’étude des scènes rituelles dans les temples des époques ptolémaïque et romaine est une thématique qui a suscité dans les dernières décennies un intérêt jamais démenti, comme en témoigne, à titre d’exemple, la collection Rites égyptiens, dont bien des volumes sont ainsi consacrés à tel ou tel rite attesté dans les temples tardifs. Néanmoins, la masse documentaire que nous offrent les édifices de cette époque est considérable, et la complexité de la « grammaire » du temple, qu’il s’agisse de l’analyse de scènes individuelles ou de celle de l’organisation plus globale du programme pariétal, est loin d’être aujourd’hui totalement disséquée dans les grands et plus petits temples de la période. Plusieurs membres de l’équipe « Égypte ancienne » de l’EPHE, doctorants ou post-doctorants, avaient émis le souhait qu’une journée d’études soit organisée à la fin de l’année académique 2013 pour évoquer ces questions et confronter des points de vue différents. Cela a abouti à la tenue, à l’EPHE, d’une telle journée, le 27 juin 2013.

 Réunis par Gaëlle Tallet et Christiane Zivie-Coche,  Le myrte & la rose. Mélanges offerts à Françoise Dunand par ses élèves, collègues et amis
Réunis par Gaëlle Tallet et Christiane Zivie-Coche
De nombreux étudiants, collègues et amis de Françoise Dunand, professeur émérite d’histoire des religions à l’université de Strasbourg, ont souhaité s’associer à l’hommage qui lui est rendu à travers ces deux volumes. La diversité des contributions organisées par thèmes reflète parfaitement le parcours singulier de la récipiendaire. De formation classique, Françoise Dunand s’est très vite orientée vers la papyrologie grecque d’abord, puis vers l’étude des cultes isiaques, ainsi qu’on les a appelés. Sa rencontre avec l’Égypte fut décisive pour le choix ultérieur de ses champs d’études : religion dans l’Égypte hellénistique et romaine sous ses formes de continuité et d’innovations, travail de terrain dans les nécropoles des oasis occidentales, poursuivi aujourd’hui encore. Reflet même de son enseignement et de ses recherches, témoignage de son rayonnement, on passera des éditions de papyrus au « cercle isiaque », des pratiques funéraires de l’Égypte tardive en faveur des hommes comme des animaux, du rôle des images à l’histoire des religions, des études sur les oasis à celles sur les femmes.

Textes réunis et édités par Christophe Thiers
Le présent ouvrage poursuit les investigations sur différents aspects des théologies et des pratiques religieuses mises en oeuvre dans la région thébaine. Les contributions mettent particulièrement en exergue le rôle majeur joué par la Butte de Djémê et les temples de Karnak, lieux de création des théologies les plus sophistiquées. Les liens avec les grands centres de Haute Égypte, les temples thébains et ceux de l’oasis de Kharga sont également mis en lumière.

 Françoise Dunand, Bahgat Ahmed Ibrahim, Roger Lichtenberg,  Le matériel archéologique et les restes humains de la nécropole de Dabashiya
Françoise Dunand, Bahgat Ahmed Ibrahim, Roger Lichtenberg
Cet ouvrage est le résultat le plus récent de la collaboration ancienne initiée par l’Inspecteur en Chef du Service des Antiquités de Kharga, Bahgat Ahmed Ibrahim, et ses collaborateurs, avec l’équipe française dirigée par Françoise Dunand qui travaille depuis maintenant trente ans sur les nécropoles de l’oasis de Kharga. Après l’exploration et la publication de la nécropole de Douch par l’équipe française dans le cadre de l’IFAO, sa collaboration avec le Service des Antiquités s’est matérialisée par l’étude de la nécropole d’Aïn el-Labakha, explorée par les Inspecteurs égyptiens, avec pour résultat un ouvrage paru en 2008. Le présent volume est consacré à la description du site de Dabashiya, dont la nécropole a été explorée par l’équipe égyptienne, à l’étude des momies et du mobilier funéraire de la tombe inviolée n° 22 ainsi qu’au catalogue des objets découverts dans les tombes. Ce site de Dabashiya est d’un intérêt tout particulier, non seulement par ses spécificités, mais par les comparaisons qu’il permet avec les différents sites de l’oasis déjà explorés. On a là encore une mine d’informations sur les pratiques funéraires, bien entendu, et aussi sur les techniques et le mode de vie des habitants de l’oasis aux époques ptolémaïque et romaine.

Frédéric Servajean,  Quatre études sur la bataille de Qadech
Frédéric Servajean
Avec Megiddo, Qadech est la seule bataille relativement bien connue de la fin de l’âge du bronze. Cependant, contrairement à la première, qui opposa Thoutmosis III à une coalition dirigée par le prince de Qadech, la bataille qui va nous occuper n’a cessé de retenir l’attention des chercheurs. L’importance de la documentation et sa nature pourraient expliquer cela, les textes et les figurations du Poème, du Bulletin et des Reliefs ayant été gravés ou consignés sur les parois de nombreux grands temples et ailleurs. Le fait que cette documentation ne permette pas de reconstituer la bataille dans son ensemble et que certains points restent encore débattus pourraient aussi l’expliquer. Mais il y a probablement une autre raison, de nature psychologique. Car le chercheur perçoit bien qu’à Qadech, il s’est produit quelque chose d’inhabituel, quelque chose ayant justement motivé cette profusion de textes dans lesquels Ramsès se met en scène, combattant seul avec l’aide d’Amon. Au point que l’on a pu écrire que Qadech fut une bataille perdue par les Égyptiens. Mais, simultanément, on se rend bien compte, à l’issue des différentes reconstitutions de celle-ci, que ce ne fut pas le cas. Certes, il ne s’agit pas d’une victoire brillante, comme l’avait été auparavant Megiddo, mais c’est un fait : à Qadech même, Ramsès ne fut pas vaincu.

Textes réunis et édités par A. Gasse, Fr. Servajean, et Chr. Thiers
Étudiants, collègues et amis, égyptologues, hellénistes ou romanistes – nombreux sont les auteurs qui ont tenu à offrir leur contribution à ces Études dédiées à Jean-Claude Grenier, titulaire de la chaire d’égyptologie de l’université Paul Valéry-Montpellier 3. L’extrême variété des sujets abordés offre un reflet fidèle de la multiplicité des intérêts qu’a toujours manifesté Jean-Claude Grenier pour l’histoire antique de la Vallée du Nil et du monde méditerranéen des Césars. C’est aussi une brillante illustration des innombrables étincelles que peut allumer un savant aussi chaleureux dans des esprits différents par leur formation, par leurs intérêts et leur culture. Ces participations aussi généreuses qu’enthousiastes occupent quatre volumes et couvrent plus de deux mille ans d’histoire. Outre des études d’égyptologie « classique », on y trouvera nombre de travaux consacrés aux dernières périodes de l’histoire de l’Égypte ancienne : l’Égypte sous domination romaine et la diffusion des croyances égyptiennes hors d’Égypte sont abordées de manière multiforme. Ces pages d’égyptologie originale s’inscrivent in Ægypto et ad Ægyptum…

Cinq contributions pour approcher par des propositions nouvelles la question posée par l’ « affaire Antinoos » et la fabrication du dernier des dieux : une traduction des inscriptions de l’obélisque romain (l’Obélisque Barberini) qui se dressait sur le site de la tombe d’Antinoos et raconte son apothéose, la question de l’emplacement de cette tombe peut-être à Rome dans les Jardins de Domitia, sur la rive droite du Tibre, où Hadrien fit élever son tombeau dynastique (le Château Saint Ange), une évocation des circonstances de la mort d’Antinoos sans doute à l’issue d’une chasse au lion qui se déroula dans la région d’Alexandrie au début du mois d’août 130, quelques remarques sur la nature « royale » d’Antinoos et une analyse du contexte alexandrin de l’année 130 qui pesant sur sa divinisation fit, peut-être, d’Antinoos un dieu « politique » au lendemain de la « Guerre Juive » qui avait ensanglanté l’Égypte et à la veille de l’ultime conflit qui allait éclater entre l’Empire et la Judée.

Gāndhārī Language and Literature

Gāndhārī Language and Literature

Gāndhārī is a northwestern Middle Indo‐Aryan language closely related to Sanskrit and Pali, attested in use from the third century BCE to the fifth century CE. It served as one of the most important vehicles for early Buddhist literature and was instrumental in the spread of Buddhism to China in the second century CE. Gāndhārī was also an important administrative language, attested in hundreds of coin legends and close to a thousand secular documents, and some examples of non‐Buddhist literary texts in Gāndhārī have likewise been found. In the course of their history, Gāndhārī language and literature spread from their homeland in the Peshawar valley as far as Mathura in the south, Bamiyan in the west, Luoyang in the east and Kucha in the north. Over the last fifteen years, the discovery of large numbers of new manuscript and epigraphical sources have greatly enriched our knowledge of Gāndhārī. Gandhari.org provides resources for those engaged in the study of Gāndhārī, including three reference works edited by Stefan Baums and Andrew Glass (A Dictionary of Gāndhārī, the Bibliography of Gāndhārī Studies and the Catalog of Gāndhārī Texts) and a comprehensive collection of source texts.

Open Access Journal: Eugesta [Journal on Gender Studies in Antiquity]

[First posted in AWOL 18 December 2011. Updated 17 December 2015]

Eugesta [Journal on Gender Studies in Antiquity]
Le recours aux concepts de sexe et de genre développés dans les Gender Studies a considérablement transformé les recherches dans le domaine de l’Antiquité en ouvrant un nouveau champ extrêmement fructueux sur le plan culturel et social. Dans la mesure où elle est à l’origine de conceptions et valeurs auxquelles se réfèrent les constructions d’identités dans les cultures occidentales, l’Antiquité est un lieu d’application de ces théories tout à fait particulier. Les travaux menés sur les relations entre hommes, entre hommes et femmes, entre femmes, et sur les façons de construire le féminin et le masculin, ont jeté sur le fonctionnement des sociétés et cultures antiques, un éclairage nouveau, qui est aussi d’un intérêt capital pour l’étude de la réception de l’Antiquité dans les cultures occidentales.

The increased attention accorded to concepts of sex and gender developed by work in gender studies has powerfully transformed research in to the ancient Mediterranean past, opening up a new extremely fruitful field of cultural and social analysis. Inasmuch as many ideas and values responsible for shaping the construction of identities in later western societies originate in antiquity, applying gendered theoretical perspectives to the texts and artifacts surviving from the ancient world antiquity offers particular benefits. Inquiries conducted into the relations among men, between men and women, among women, and on modes of constructing what qualifies as “feminine” and “masculine” have brought a new illumination to the distinctive ways that ancient societies and cultures functioned, an illumination also of major relevance for research on the reception of antiquity in western cultures.

Inscriptiones Graecae: Elektronische Edition

 [First posted in AWOL 23 July 2010. Updated 18 December 2015]

 Inscriptiones Graecae: Elektronische Edition
Inschriften sind die Fußnoten im Buch der Geschichte der alten Welt; nur daß über weite Strecken der Haupttext fehlt.
Inschriften sind Primärquellen zur Geschichte, Religionsgeschichte, Sprachwissenschaft, Onomastik usw., die die antiken Autoren ergänzen, illustrieren, korrigieren. Jede Inschrift ist ein Original. Meist verstümmelt gefunden, sind sie in hohem Maße der Ergänzung und Interpretation bedürftig. Mitunter gelingt es, verstreute Fragmente ein- und derselben Inschrift zusammenzusetzen. Der Zustrom an neuen Inschriften hält unvermindert an: jährlich werden ca. 1000 neu publiziert.

Inschriften sind in der Regel auf Metall eingeritzt oder punziert, auf Stein eingemeißelt und mit Farbe (rot, blau) ausgelegt. Qualität und Menge der Inschriften ist abhängig von den zur Verfügung stehenden Gesteinen. Metallplatten sind besonders auf der Peloponnes verbreitet. Bleiplättchen werden, zusammengerollt, für Verwünschungen bevorzugt. Silber und Gold sind äußerst selten. Die ältesten Inschriften stammen aus dem 8. Jh. v.Chr. Es gibt keinen Zwischenraum zwischen den Worten (scriptio continua); Interpunktionen finden sich in frühester Zeit willkürlich, in der Kaiserzeit nach röm. Vorbild gelegentlich; dann auch Abkürzungen.
Der Inhalt der Inschriften äußerst mannigfach. Am häufigsten sind Grabinschriften auf Grabstelen (mit Relief), -säulen, -altären: Namen der Toten und Gruß. Eine besondere Form bilden Grabgedichte - Weih-Inschriften an die Götter, oft auf dem geweihten Gegenstand selbst angebracht; häufig nach einem Sieg bei sportlichen oder musischen Agonen gestiftet [16]. - Ehren-Inschriften, vor allem Unterschriften von Statuen, erst seit dem 4.Jh. v.Chr. häufiger, in röm. Zeit massenhaft. - Bildhauer-Inschriften, in denen sich der ausführende Künstler nennt. - Dekrete mit den Beschlüssen der Gesamtgemeinde oder ihrer Abteilungen und Vereine, im Formular in den einzelnen Poleis verschieden. Es überwiegen Ehrendekrete für Bürger anderer Poleis, Könige, römische Magistrate, denen das Ehrenbürgerrecht (Proxenie) verliehen wird. - Freilassungsurkunden von Sklaven, oft als (fiktiver) Verkauf an eine Gottheit vollzogen und in deren Tempel dokumentiert. - Grenz- und Hypothekensteine (horoi). - Gesetze und Regelungen privatrechtlicher sowie öffentlicher und sakraler Angelegenheiten bis hin zur Kodifizierung geltenden Rechts. - Religiöse Texte, Hymnen (mit Noten). - Briefe von hellenistischen Königen und römischen Kaisern. - Bauinschriften, Abrechnungs-Urkunden, Inventarlisten von sakralem Gerät. - Listen und Kataloge von Gegenständen (z.B. auf den Schiffen der athenischen Flotte) und Personen (z.B. von eponymen Beamten, Priestern). - Zwischenstaatliche Urkunden (Asylieurkunden, Staatsverträge, Akten der Rechtssprechung).
Die Sammlung der antiken Inschriften wurde im Jahre 1815 von der Preußischen Akademie der Wissenschaften auf Antrag von August Boeckh beschlossen. In den vier Bänden des "Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum" wurden 1828-1859 alle damals bekannten Inschriften gesammelt und kommentiert. Ulrich von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff vereinte 1902 das Prinzip der Autopsie mit dem der Vollständigkeit, beschränkte zugleich die auf 15 Bände geplanten "Inscriptiones Graecae" (IG) auf Griechenland, Italien und die Inseln der Ägäis. Zur Aktualisierung der Sammlung sind Neuauflagen (editio altera) sowie Supplementbände vorgesehen.
Die digitale Edition enthält, beginnend mit dem im Jahre 2001 erschienenen Band IG IX 1², 4, Texte und deutsche Übersetzungen aller Inschriften; die Aufnahme von Übersetzungen in anderen Sprachen ist vorgesehen. In den Übersetzungen wurde auf diakritische Zeichen weitgehend verzichtet; Ergänzungen sind nicht eigens gekennzeichnet, sondern ergeben sich aus dem Vergleich mit der Edition. In bestimmten Fällen sind weitergehende Ergänzungen aus dem kritischen Apparat in eckigen Klammern [ ] wiedergegeben; für den Sinnzusammenhang notwendige sowie erklärende Zusätze sind durch runde Klammern ( ) kenntlich gemacht. Lücken gleich welchen Umfangs werden einheitlich durch "- - -" gekennzeichnet. Alle Zeitangaben sind v. Chr., sofern nicht anders angegeben. Die Abkürzungen "S. d." (= "Sohn des") und "T. d." (= Tochter des") umschreiben das griechische Patronymikon.

e-Ktobe: Manuscrits Syriaques

[First posted in AWOL 27 August 2012, updated 19 December 2015]

e-Ktobe: Manuscrits Syriaques
E-ktobe is a database on Syriac manuscripts which aims to collect information on texts, physical elements, colophons and notes. It will enable any researcher to make a request on texts, authors and codicological elements for all the Syriac manuscripts in the world. Thanks to this database, you can search for some material details, do multi-criterial research, and also make a request about one person connected with the making of Syriac manuscripts (copyist, restorer, sponsor, owner...). The main scientific goals of this project are to give insight into the cultural history of Syriac communities and develop Syriac codicology.

This database is in progress. Made in the framework of the ANR program called SYRAB, this Web site is under the scientific responsability of André Binggeli and Muriel Debié (CNRS, IRHT, section grecque et Proche-Orient chrétien), Françoise Briquel-Chatonnet and Alain Desreumaux (CNRS, UMR 8167).

Currently, it is being fed by Emiliano Fiori (University of Berlin), Simone I. M. Pratelli (University of Pisa), Flavia Ruani (IRHT, section grecque et de l'Orient chrétien) et Emilie Villey (University of Berlin).

Papyri.info updates: January-November 2015

Papyri.info updates
Dear Colleagues,

Here is a brief overview of the activity in papyri.info from January to November of the calendar year 2015.
The entry of the following volumes has been completed:
P.Heid. X (with thanks to Johanna Egerer)
P.Oxy. LXXIX (with thanks to Federica Micucci and Danae Bafa)
P.Oxy. LXXX (with thanks to Danae Bafa)
PSI XVI  (with thanks to Federica Micucci)

It is worth mentioning that two texts have now been included in papyri.info and are searchable for the first time in DDbDP. They had not originally been included all those decades ago. These are
a particularly interesting contract of sale from Kopanis in Parthia.
a certificate of pagan sacrifice which was originally published amongst the Christian texts in P.Ryl. I and had been missed.

There is ongoing work on the entry of O.Petr.Mus., P.Monts.Roca IV, P.Prag. III amongst others.
P.Köln XI - XIII are in the process of being finished and will be done within the next few weeks.
SB XXVI is also being completed.

Since work began on the entry of texts through the editor of papyri.info in 2010, 29 volumes have been completely entered. A full list of these can be found at:

Another list may be found of those volumes which still have to be completed:
in many cases only a few texts remain to be completed. Thanks to a number of volunteers it is possible to organise filling these gaps.

The entry of Coptic is continuing well.
CPR XX has been completed. Much of CPR II and IV have been entered as well as numerous bilinugal texts. There is ongoing work on O.Frange and P.KRU. In this area huge thanks for their steadfast work are due to Anne Boudhors, Esther Garel, Georg Schmelz, Maria-Jesus Albarran and Alain Delattre who do the most lifting.

SB XXVIII will added to HGV and ready for entry at the beginning of next year.

All the best
