SHEBANQ: System for HEBrew Text: ANnotations for Queries and Markup

SHEBANQ: System for HEBrew Text: ANnotations for Queries and Markup
This is a system for the study of the Hebrew Bible, produced by the ETCBCin cooperation with the German Bible Societyand the Netherlands Bible Society.

It is powered by the ETCBC database, formerly known as WIVU which facilitates powerful syntactical queries. SHEBANQ lets you develop and share those queries with fellow researchers. Scholarly editions of the Bible usually dedicate space to a critical apparatus and various kinds of annotations. SHEBANQ introduces the idea of annotating the text with queries. They show up next to the text pages where the results are. By sharing your queries with others, you may find what you did not search for. Of course you can also add ordinary annotations!

 Get started
Read the text, view words, queries and notes, and move around

Corpus Nummorum Thracorum

Corpus Nummorum Thracorum
Ancient Thrace
Thrace – modern Bulgaria, Northern Greece, and European Turkey – is an ancient region distinguished by 800 years of interesting coinage which includes a rich variety of types. The goal of the project, funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) for three years, is a numismatic web portal. Thracian coins found in museums and private collections throughout the world will be virtually collected in this online database that is free and open to the public. The portal is initially based on the collection of plaster casts from the research project for Greek coins (Griechische Münzwerk) at the Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities together with the coin collection from the Berlin Münzkabinett. Additionally it is possible for museums and collections as well as for private persons to digitally document and publish their collections through the portal. This digital publication, including a recognizable reference number, image, weight, and repository information, is an effective measure that can be taken to protect ancient cultural heritage .

Open Access Journal: Hypnos: Revista do Centro de Estudos da Antiguidade

[First posted in AWOL 15 April 2011. Updated 26 January 2016]

Hypnos: Revista do Centro de Estudos da Antiguidade
ISSN: 2177-5346
A Hypnos é, qualitativa e quantitativamente, uma revista de Filosofia Greco-romana. Busca ampliar, também, o diálogo com outros saberes da Antiguidade Clássica, hoje bem delineados em nossas Universidades: Literatura Clássica, História Greco-romana, História das Religiões, Línguas Clássicas etc. Acreditamos que a cultura Greco-romana deve ser assumida pelos estudiosos em Filosofia com o máximo de abrangência. A Editoria persegue esse objetivo e procurará publicar, sempre que possível, não só os textos sobre Filosofia Greco-romana mas as pesquisas literárias, linguísticas, históricas, psicológicas, antropológicas e outras condizentes com esse período histórico. A extensão da cultura grega e romana antigas faz com que as atuais divisões acadêmicas sejam uma necessidade, mas não uma regra que venha a limitar o investigador, filósofo ou não. Por isso, a Hypnos apresenta largos limites para a recepção desses estudos. Basicamente, esta revista é um veículo de auxílio para a interação dos estudos Greco-romanos brasileiros e não brasileiros.

CLAROS. Concordance of Greek inscriptions

 [First posted in AWOL 25 January 2011, updated 26 January 2016]

CLAROS. Concordance of Greek inscriptions

This new version of CLAROS contains more than 605.000 equivalences coming from over 1000 collections. In general terms (with the main exceptions of the concordances of SEG and BE), we only collect references to editions and translations, not to commentaries that do not include the Greek text or a translation. We think that, once the editions are located, it will be easy to find further critical bibliography. Nevertheless, we have exceptionally gathered references to commentaries in the case of those collections that mix both types of references in their concordance, not being easy to separate them.
In this fifth upgrade we want to emphasize two specially significant facts:

1. Among the new equivalences established through direct reading, more than 23.000 correspond to the years 1978-2010 of the Bulletin Épigraphique of the Revue des Études Grecques. It has been an arduous work but from now on the users of the BE will finally be able to consult a quite complete on-line concordance of this valuable working tool, with more than 58.000 references for the years 1922-2010.

2. But, undoubtedly, the main contribution of this upgrade, apart from 150.000 new concordances, is the introduction of almost 180.000 external links that connect the results of bibliographical searches with digital versions of publications. There are three kinds of links, each of them in a different color:

The red links connect with PDF papers in subscription platforms, which require some kind of payment for consulting complete papers, like JStor or Periodicals Archive Online.
The green links connect with hard copies (journals or books) in PDF or JPG format that may be consulted without restrictions in all kinds of platforms or repositories (École Française d'Athènes, Köln Universität, Gallica, Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg, Persée, Revues.org, Internet Archive, etc.).
The blue links connect with digital editions of inscriptions, including both original editions (The Princeton Project on the Inscriptions of Anatolia in Searchable Greek Inscriptions, Inscriptions of Aphrodisias Project, Inscriptions of Israel / Palestine, etc.) and digital versions of corpora simultaneously or previously published (Inscriptiones Graecae, Monumenta Asiae Minoris Antiqua XI, Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, etc.).

AXON: Silloge di Iscrizione Storiche Greche

AXON: Silloge di Iscrizione Storiche Greche
Il Progetto Axon intende proporre una selezione digitale di iscrizioni greche, di ogni tipologia, scelte in base alla loro rilevanza ‘storica’, dalle origini della polis al 31 a.C. Ogni scheda digitale contiene una descrizione del supporto, dei luoghi di rinvenimento e conservazione, indicazioni circa cronologia e tipologia del documento, informa sulla lingua e sulle particolarità della scrittura, fornisce un lemma genetico, testo greco con apparato critico, traduzione e commento in lingua italiana, oltre a una bibliografia aggiornata. 

È possibile sfogliare l’intera selezione dal Catalogo, o compiere una Ricerca attraverso numerosi indicatori, oppure accedere alle schede attraverso la Mappa interattiva. 

Il Progetto gode del patrocinio dell'Istituto Italiano per la Storia Antica ed è affiliato ad Europeana EAGLE Project.
Il Progetto AXON nasce in seno alla Sezione Greca del Laboratorio di Epigrafia Greca diretta da Claudia Antonetti e trova in esso la sua sede scientifica ed operativa. Esso è stato finanziato dall’Università Ca’ Foscari nel quadro dei Progetti di Ateneo (PRA) 2013 e come tale è coordinato da Stefania De Vido.

AXON intende presentare una silloge di iscrizioni greche selezionate in base alla loro rilevanza ‘storica’, valorizzando il documento epigrafico quale fonte indispensabile non solo per la ricostruzione dei diversi aspetti della storia politica o istituzionale del mondo greco, ma anche come fondamentale risorsa per l’indagine diretta a numerosi temi di storia sociale e culturale. Accogliendo tale accezione ‘ampia’ di iscrizione storica, la silloge abbraccia un arco temporale particolarmente esteso, dalla nascita della polis al 31 a.C., corrispondente ai termini convenzionalmente impiegati nella didattica per definire la ‘storia greca’. 

Ogni documento è presentato attraverso una scheda digitale che contiene un’accurata descrizione del supporto, dei luoghi di rinvenimento e di conservazione, della cronologia e della tipologia del documento, oltre a informare sulla lingua e sulle particolarità della scrittura; è presente anche un lemma genetico dell’iscrizione, il testo in greco con apparato critico, traduzione e commento in lingua italiana, oltre a una bibliografia aggiornata. 

L’archivio così creato adotta nelle sue articolazioni gli standards internazionali ampiamente affermati nel settore dell’epigrafia digitale, e impiega un lessico il più possibile condiviso. 

Il progetto si avvale ad oggi della collaborazione di molti studiosi italiani dalle maggiori Università, e coinvolge specialisti e studiosi di diversi ambiti di ricerca, dalla dialettologia alla storia, dall’epigrafia all’archeologia, dunque si ritiene che esso possa contribuire ad avviare una sinergia di lunga durata tra settori disciplinari differenti e a costituire un concreto terreno di confronto scientifico. Destinato alla libera consultazione on-line, rimarrà aperto alla continua implementazione.

26th International Congress of Papyrology Proceedings Online

Actes du 26e Congrès international de papyrologie

Schubert, Paul Henri

Genève : Droz, 2012

(Recherches et rencontres ; 30)

ISBN: 9782600016124

Sur le pourtour de la Méditerranée antique, le papyrus servait de support d'écriture pour la rédaction de documents de la vie courante ; on y copiait aussi les oeuvres des poètes et des prosateurs. Les dizaines de milliers de textes qui nous sont ainsi parvenus ne constituent qu'une faible part de la production totale de l'époque. Ils sont le plus souvent écrits en grec, et proviennent d'Égypte. D'autres langues sont aussi représentées : égyptien, latin ou encore arabe ; on a également retrouvé des papyrus en Syrie, en Israël, en Grèce et en Italie. L’étude de ce matériel appartient aux papyrologues, chargés de déchiffrer, commenter puis expliquer les papyrus. Le 26e Congrès international de papyrologie qui s’est tenu à Genève en 2010 a permis de constater la variété des approches pratiquées dans le monde. Le lecteur trouvera dans ce volume aussi bien des articles rédigées par des savants de grand renom que des travaux produits par ceux qui pratiqueront la papyrologie de demain.

Numismatische Bilddatenbank Eichstätt

Numismatische Bilddatenbank Eichstätt

Die Numismatische Bilddatenbank Eichstätt (NBE) stellt eine breite Auswahl antiker Münzen in hochauflösenden Digitalphotographien zur Verfügung. 

Die Kooperation einiger wichtiger Auktionshäuser (s. unten) ermöglicht den Aufbau einer virtuellen Sammlung auch wertvollster Münzen, die in dieser Auswahl in keiner realen Universitätssammlung und wohl auch nur in sehr wenigen Museen und Münzkabinetten zu Studienzwecken zur Verfügung stehen. Die NBE-Münzen sind bequem über mehrere Register recherchierbar. Für die Typenbeschreibung wurden die jeweiligen Standardcorpora benutzt. 

Hinsichtlich Umfang, Auswahl der Stücke und Bildqualität ist die frei zugängliche Numismatische Bilddatenbank Eichstätt derzeit einzigartig und stellt eine wichtige Ressource für Forschung und Lehre dar:
  • "Sie ist gerade vorbildlich für eine sinnvolle Anwendung von Neuen Medien im wissenschaftlichen Alltag." (Tatiana Tchekmareva für H-Soz-u-Kult/Clio online)
  • "Von hohem praktischen Nutzen" (Gudrun Gersmann in GWU 53 (2002), S. 373).
Den Ausgangspunkt für die Numismatische Bilddatenbank Eichstätt bildete die Münzsammlung am Lehrstuhl für Alte Geschichte der Katholischen Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt. Diese Münzen werden ergänzt durch die Sammlung des Seminars für Klassische Philologie der Universität Erlangen sowie die Sammlung des Seminars für Klassische Archäologie der Universität Regensburg. Prof. Dr. Severin Koster danke ich für die Erlaubnis, die Erlanger Münzen in die Bilddatenbank aufzunehmen. Prof. Dr. Burkhardt Wesenberg und Prof. Dieter Salzmann ermöglichten die Erfassung der Regensburger Sammlung und die Benutzung des unveröffentlichten Kataloges. 

Die historisch bedeutendsten Münzen der NBE stammen nicht aus Universitätssammlungen. Die Auktionshäuser Gorny & Mosch (München), Leu Numismatics (Zürich), Münzen & Medaillen (Basel), Numismatica Ars Classica (Zürich/London) sowie Numismatik Lanz (München) haben die Erlaubnis gegeben, Münzen aus ihren Beständen in die Numismatische Bilddatenbank Eichstätt aufzunehmen. 

Das Copyright für alle Photos liegt beim Lehrstuhl für Alte Geschichte an der Katholischen Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt; die Bilder - im JPEG-Format - stehen interessierten Benutzern für nichtkommerzielle Zwecke (z. B. als Materialien für Lehrveranstaltungen oder wissenschaftliche Veröffentlichungen in Zeitschriften) zur freien Verfügung, soweit die Herkunft der Bilder aus der NBE ausgewiesen wird. 

Anregungen, Fragen und Kritik sind bitte zu richten an Jürgen Malitz.

Lepsius Denkmäler Online

 [First posted in AWOL 21 November 2010. Updated 28 January 2016]

Carl Richard Lepsius, Denkmäler aus Aegypten und Aethiopien
In den Jahren 1842 bis 1845 führte Carl Richard Lepsius im Auftrag seiner Majestät dem König von Preussen Friedrich Wilhelm IV. eine wissenschaftliche Expedition nach Ägypten durch. Die dort gewonnenen Ergebnisse wurden von ihm in dem großen Tafelwerk "Denkmäler aus Aegypten und Aethiopien" zusammengefaßt, das in den Jahren 1849 bis 1859 erschien.

Das Tafelwerk umfasst 12 Bände, die in 6 Abteilungen unterteilt sind. Lepsius plante, diesen Tafeln einen erläuternten Text beizugeben und die nicht in das Hauptwerk aufgenommenen Zeichnungen und Inschriften in einem Ergänzungsband herauszugeben. Beide Pläne gelangten durch den Tod von Carl Richard Lepsius nicht zur Verwirklichung.

Die Herausgabe der erläuternden Texte übernahm deshalb Eduard Naville, die Ausarbeitung wurde Kurt Sethe übertragen, dem Regierungsbaumeister Borchardt für die architektonischen Abschnitte zur Seite stand.

Zamani Project

Zamani Project

The project attempts to capture the spatial domain of heritage, with a current focus on Africa, by accurately recording its physical and architectural structures , their dimensions and their positions. Sites are seen in the context of their physical environment, and  wherever possible,  the topography of landscapes surrounding the documented sites is  mapped based on satellite images and aerial photography. The documentation project was initiated to increase international awareness of Africa’s heritage and to provide material for research and education while, at the same time, creating a permanent metrically accurate record of important sites for restoration and conservation purposes. Data generated by the  project have been, and are currently , used for conservation interventions in a number of sites.

The project is based on state-of-the art data acquisition and presentation technology which are used to generate Geographic Information Systems, 3D computer models and other spatial data. The data are captured during, often complex and difficult, field campaigns of the project team. The team has completed documentation work in Ghana, Mali, Cameroon, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Algeria, and South Africa as well as in Abu Dhabi and Jordan. Further documentation work is planned for other African sites. The heritage collection is conceptualised as an integrated and interactive model, in which contextual data are closely linked to spatial data. It is the vision of the documentation project that the Zamani Project will not only be used as an information source but that the spatial data and representation of the sites will form the basis for additional site documentation and contribute to site management.

The Zamani Project was initiated in 2004 in the Geomatics Division of the University of Cape Town and funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation from 2004 until 2012. Presently the project is funded through the independent “Zamani African Cultural Heritage Sites Trust", which was established by the Philanthropist and UCT Alumni Duncan Saville.

Open Access Journal: Arkeos : Revista Electronica de Arqueologia

[First posted in AWOL 21 March 2011. Updated  31 January 2016]

Arkeos : Revista Electronica de Arqueologia
ISSN: 1819-0421
Título de página
Arkeos, revista electrónica de arqueología, busca crear un espacio de debate de temas arqueológicos, análisis y sobre todo difusión de los estudios realizados por los estudiantes y egresados de la Especialidad de Arqueología de la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú; a través de las convocatorias para la publicación se busca  incentivar la investigación en los jóvenes profesionales de la PUCP, así como el generar espacios críticos para la discusión y el intercambio de información.

Esta publicación tiene como meta captar la atención tanto del medio académico como del público no especializado. Se busca el acercamiento al público en general, con el objetivo de incentivar el interés en la práctica arqueológica debido a la importancia que ésta tiene en la educación, la defensa del patrimonio y la construcción de identidades, entre otros.

En el ámbito especializado, Arkeos busca crear redes de comunicación  e intercambio de información entre los estudiantes y profesionales de arqueología que desarrollan sus actividades en el medio local; además, dará a conocer en el ámbito internacional los avances y resultados de las más recientes investigaciones desarrolladas en el Perú por los profesionales de la PUCP.

Actualmente, los espacios de difusión, intercambio de información y debate de temas arqueológicos son pocos, y en la mayoría de estos casos llegan a un público limitado debido al alcance de las publicaciones. En algunos casos inclusive están concebidos para sólo un sector del público, sea éste especializado o no. Arkeos busca abarcar una mayor diversidad de intereses, y sobre todo hacer uso de las ventajas que ofrecen las ediciones electrónicas en cuanto a difusión y manejo de la información.
Arkeos se convierte además en herramienta para estimular la investigación y la publicación en los jóvenes estudiantes y profesionales de arqueología, complementando su desarrollo profesional.
