Fundmünzen der Antike (FdA)
Fundmu__nzen_der_Antike.jpg
Im Projekt, das zunächst von der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft getragen wurde und seit 1986 in der Obhut der Akademie ist, wird eine neue historische Quelle herausgegeben und ausgewertet: die antike Münze als Wertmesser, als Zahlungsmittel und als Trägerin des Umlaufs. Ziel ist, neues Wissen über das Verhalten des Nutzers des gemünzten Geldes angesichts von finanzpolitischen Maßnahmen der jeweiligen Obrigkeit zu gewinnen und die Rolle der Münze in Geschichte und Kultur ihrer Zeit schrittweise immer besser kennenzulernen. Angesichts des Untersuchungsgebietes und des -zeitraumes - es geht immerhin um den gesamten antiken Mittelmeerraum vom 7. Jh. v. bis zum 9. Jh. n. Chr. (im Ostmediterraneum kommen mit der byzantinischen Periode noch etwa 5 weitere Jahrhunderte hinzu) -, steht die intensive internationale Zusammenarbeit im Vordergrund, die sich in den Publikationen bestens widerspiegelt. 

Zu den Umlaufsanalysen auf der Grundlage eigens für diese Zwecke erarbeiteter Methoden kommen laufend neue Aspekte und Perspektiven für die Forschung hinzu: Datenerfassung und graphische Dokumentation auf EDV-Basis, metallurgische Untersuchungen, Erkenntnisse über die Nutzung von Münzen im kulturellen Bereich ihrer Zeit und anderes mehr.

Etymological Dictionary of Akkadian

Etymological Dictionary of Akkadian

Supplement to the Akkadian Dictionaries


Akkadian (Babylonian-Assyrian), a Semitic language written in the cuneiform script, was the native language of Babylonia and Assyria, the two main areas of Ancient Mesopotamia. It spread all over the Ancient Near East and was used, at least in written form and during certain periods, also from Elam in southwest Iran to Anatolia Syria, Palestine and even Egypt in the west. Written from ca. 2600 BC to the 1st century AD, Akkadian is one of the best attested languages of antiquity: the size of the Akkadian text corpus approximately corresponds to the size of the corpus of ancient Latin. 


The Akkadian lexicon is actually accessible through two large dictionaries, W. von Sodens Akkadisches Handwörterbuch (1958–1981, 3 volumes) and The Assyrian Dictionary of the University of Chicago (1956–2010, 20 volumes). Both dictionaries present Akkadian words with their meaning in context and a large number of references. As a huge reservoir for the history of Near Eastern languages and cultures, however, the Akkadian lexicon is still almost unexploited. The Etymological Dictionary of Akkadian, a joint project of the Seminar für Sprachen und Kulturen des Vorderen Orients (university of Jena) and the Altorientalisches Institut (Universität Leipzig), aims to analyse the Akkadian lexicon in the context of the Semitic language family and as the source, receptor and transmitter of loanwords and foreign words of Semitic and non-Semitic origin, part of which still survive in modern languages. 


The Etymological Dictionary of Akkadian is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft as a long-term project. The project leaders are Leonid Kogan (Moscow), Manfred Krebernik (Jena) and Michael P. Streck (Leipzig). The project started on July 1st, 2013. 


One module of the project is to create a Supplement to the Akkadian dictionaries mentioned above. This is the task of the Leipzig team (Michael P. Streck, Nadezda Rudik). The supplement is meant to provide new references for Akkadian words in the many texts published after the end of the Akkadisches Handwörterbuch and The Assyrian Dictionary of the University of Chicago as well as new secondary literature and corrections. The supplement is published online below.

Elektronisches Handbuch der Keilschrifttexte aus Mari
Vor einigen Jahren hatten zwei Leipziger Doktoranden, die mit Texten aus Mari arbeiteten, die beinahe wahnwitzige Idee, für die eigenen Forschungszwecke die Texte aus Mari systematisch mit ihren Museums‐ bzw. Grabungsnummern (soweit bekannt) sowie der Primär‐ und Sekundärliteratur zu erfassen. Im Laufe der Zeit zeigte sich, wie umfangreich das Korpus und die Informationen zu den einzelnen Texten sind. Nach nunmehr 3 1/2 Jahren akribischer Sammelarbeit, die lediglich von der Erfüllung eines Kinderwunsches und dem Voranbringen der Doktorarbeit zeitweise unterbrochen werden musste, soll nunmehr das vorläufige Ergebnis dieser Arbeit der Altorientalistischen Welt zugänglich sein. Aufgrund der enormen Fülle des Materials befindet sich dieses Projekt verstaÅNndlicherweise immer noch im Status des „work‐in‐ progress“ und wird wohl auch in absehbarer Zeit kaum abgeschlossen sein können ...

Carmina Latina Epigraphica Hispaniae
Portal de poesía epigráfica latina: búsquedas icónicas y textuales- Latin epigraphic poetry database: iconographic and textual searches
C. Fernández Martínez, J. Gómez Pallarès, J. del Hoyo Calleja, editores.
http://www.clehispaniae.com/img/logo.png
En 1964, Hans Krummrey, insatisfecho con los diversos criterios de las ediciones y colecciones de Carmina Latina Epigraphica (CLE) que le habían precedido, lanzó la idea de una nueva clasificación de estos CLE en un volumen independiente del Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum (CIL), el que habrá de ser el XVIII, dedicado exclusivamente a los CLE y organizado según la geografía administrativa del Imperio Romano ("Zum Plan einer neuen Sammlung der CLE", Philologus 108, 1964, pp. 304-310). El citado trabajo constituye, en cierto modo, el acta fundacional del futuro CIL XVIII, en el que se inserta nuestro grupo de redacción, centrado en el material de Hispania (CIL XVIII/ 2), próximo a su publicación.


Como fruto de los trabajos de autopsia del material y de su edición y comentario filológico, ofrecemos a la comunidad científica interesada este Portal de Poesía Epigráfica Latina. El Portal presenta todos los materiales que el grupo ha venido trabajando desde 1994 bajo una perspectiva de web 2.0., interactiva y con capacidad para adaptarse a las distintas necesidades de un investigador. La primera redacción completa se ha cerrado en junio de 2013, pero la renovación y corrección de contenidos, dada la naturaleza del portal, será periódica.



In 1964, Hans Krummrey, dissatisfied with the previous editions and collections of Carmina Latina Epigraphica (CLE) arranged by various criteria, launched the idea of ​​a new classification of CLE in a separate volume of the Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum (CIL). This volume, the 18th, will be exclusively dedicated to CLE and organised according to the administrative geography of the Roman Empire ("Zum neuen einer Sammlung der Plan CLE" Philologus 108, 1964, p. 304-310). The cited work is, somehow, the first step to the forthcoming CIL XVIII. Our group focused its activity on the metrical inscriptions from Hispania, which are to be published as the volume XVIII/2 of CIL. 
We now offer the scientific community this Epigraphic Latin Poetry Website, containing new editions based on a variety of reliable autopsy works and philological analysis. All the material produced by the group since 1994 is provided from a Web 2.0 perspective, interactive and adaptable to the different needs of its researchers. The first document drafting was finished in June 2013, however, given the nature of the website, it will be periodically updated.

Worldwide Directory of Museums with Near Eastern Collections
D. Homès-Fredericq with the collaboration of A. DeGraeve, Eric Gubel and I. Swinnen 

The World-Wide Directory of Museums lists museums with Ancient Near Eastern collections: national, regional, university museums and accessible private collections of Mesopotamia, the Levant, Iran, Anatolia, the Persian Gulf area and pre-islamic Arabia in general.

The Directory is intended for professionals, museum curators, archaeologists, philologists and students involved in Near Eastern studies, as well as tourists interested in visiting museums with Near Eastern collections. They will find the following information (wherever available): practical information about the museum: address (with telephone, fax, email), name of curator and/or director, opening day(s) and hours; description of thecollection (importance and more detailed geographical, chronological information, origin of the objects, …), bibliography about the collection: including exhibition catalogues, journals, books, articles about the Near Eastern collections, slide collections if mentioned, as well as current and new projects, besides other relevant facts. The bulk of this information was collected on the Internet.

Open Access Library: Trismegistos

Trismegistos
http://www.trismegistos.org/img/tm_logo_web2.png
Trismegistos [TM], called after the famous epithet of Hermes - Thoth, the Egyptian god of wisdom and writing who also played a major role in Greek religion and philosophy, is a platform aiming to surmount barriers of language and discipline in the study of texts from the ancient world, particularly late period Egypt and the Nile valley (roughly BC 800 - 800 AD).

The core component of TM is Trismegistos Texts, currently counting 675313 entries. When the database was created in 2005, it focused on providing information (metadata) on published papyrological documents from Graeco-Roman Egypt. Chronological boundaries are always artificial, and the nature of the sources soon suggested that BC 800 and AD 800 were more suited. Since egyptology does not know a disciplinary boundary between papyri and inscriptions, TM also decided to expand by adding all epigraphic material as well. Papyrology on the other hand includes also writing tablets from outside Egypt, which led us to widen our geographical scope to the entire ancient world. Finally, since the distinction between published and unpublished is increasingly less productive in a digital environment, we now no longer discriminate in that respect either. In principle, however, we still provide only metadata.

This means that Trismegistos increasingly wants to be a platform where information can be found about all texts from antiquity, thus facilitating cross-cultural and cross-linguistic research. This will of course only be possible through cooperation with all players in the field, since our aim is to lead people to the partner websites, where more information, often including also photographs, transliterations and translations of the texts, can be found.

Several aspects of the Texts database have been elaborated in the course of successive projects (see History) and have become separate databases linked with the core Trismegistos Texts database.
  1. The Collections database, built on the Leuven Homepage of Papyrus Collections, is a set of currently 3720 modern institutional and private collections of texts and their 212658 inventory numbers. It is searchable both separately and in the Texts database.
  2. The Archives database, built on the Leuven Homepage of Papyrus Archives, is a set of currently 497 collections of texts in antiquity, mainly in Egypt, and the 17521 texts that are part of these archives. It is searchable separately, leading to the texts themselves.
  3. The People database, building on the Prosopographia Ptolemaica, is a complex set of prosopographical and onomastic databases. It currently contains 493087 attestations of personal names of non-royal individuals living in Egypt between BC 800 and AD 800, including all languages and scripts and written on any surface.
  4. The Places database, expanding the geographic database of the Fayum project, is a set of currently 47670 places in Egypt and increasingly also outside (in view of the expansion of TM to the ancient world in general). It contains the currently 197357 attestations of toponyms in texts from Egypt (BC 800 – AD 800), but is also linked to the provenance field in Trismegistos Texts.
  5. Finally, because abbreviations are often different in the various disciplines, we have also started creating a Bibliography which resolves many of the short references we use in Trismegistos. The other way round it also wants to facilitate the search for all texts in a specific publication. Its coverage is patchy except for the publications dealing with Demotic and Abnormal Hieratic, where the Demotistische Literaturübersicht provides a much higher standard of bibliographic information.

Trismegistos Online Publications (TOP)

This series, edited by W. Clarysse (K.U.Leuven) / M. Depauw (K.U.Leuven) / H.J. Thissen (Universität zu Köln), aims to provide freely downloadable pdf-documents with scholarly tools based upon or providing links to the Trismegistos database.

Trismegistos Online Publications Special Series (TOP SS)

Often a PhD thesis for some reason cannot be published immediately. In the years that follow, the authors do not find the time to revise the manuscript as they wanted. This in turn causes problems because new literature appears or the evidence of new sources needs to be incorporated. As a result, the manuscript often remains unpublished and the valuable insights risk to be inaccessible and thus lost for scholarship.
To prevent this, Trismegistos Online Publications have decided to open up a new 'Special Series', where valuable PhD theses or other scholarly manuscripts can be published with an ISBN number.
Contributors can send in manuscripts in Word or PDF format to mark.depauw@arts.kuleuven.be. The editor will consult experts about the quality of the manuscript without taking into account whether it is abreast of recent scholarly literature or developments.

    Under the influence of Italian humanism and of his book-collector tutor János Vitéz, the Archbishop of Esztergom, Matthias Corvinus of Hungary (1443–1490), developed a passion for books and learning. Elected king of Hungary in 1458 at the age of 14, Matthias won great acclaim for his battles against the Ottoman Turks and his patronage of learning and science. He created the Bibliotheca Corviniana, in its day one of Europe’s finest libraries. After his death, and especially after the conquest of Buda by the Turks in 1541, the library ...

In addition to the main text, the manuscript contains accounts of two miracles of the Holy Mother. First published in 1762, Paisiĭ’s history encouraged the Bulgarians, who had been under Ottoman rule for centuries, to discover their national consciousness and to embrace the Bulgarian language. The work was so influential that it was copied by hand and excerpted many times without Paisiĭ being identified as the author or his ...

He used a system of grid lines to plot the latitude and longitude of some 8,000 places on a map that encompassed the known world at the height of the Roman Empire. Ptolemy’s work was lost to Europe in the Middle Ages, but around 1300 Byzantine ...

    RINAP: The Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period

    [First posted in AWOL 16 July 2011. Most recently updated  23 April 2016] 

    The Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period
    Esarhaddon Text 98

    Numerous royally commissioned texts were composed between 744 BC and 609 BC, a period during which Assyria became the dominant power in southwestern Asia. Eight hundred and fifty to nine hundred such inscriptions are known today. The Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period (RINAP) Project, under the direction of Professor Grant Frame of the University of Pennsylvania, will publish in print and online all of the known royal inscriptions that were composed during the reigns of the Assyrian kings Tiglath-pileser III (744-727 BC), Shalmaneser V (726-722 BC), Sargon II (721-705 BC), Sennacherib (704-681 BC), Esarhaddon (680-669 BC), Ashurbanipal (668-ca. 631 BC), Aššur-etel-ilāni (ca. 631-627/626 BC), Sîn-šumu-līšir (627/626 BC), Sîn-šarra-iškun (627/626-612 BC), and Aššur-uballiṭ II (611-609 BC), rulers whose deeds were also recorded in the Bible and in some classical sources. The individual texts range from short one-line labels to lengthy, detailed inscriptions with over 1200 lines (4000 words) of text.
    These Neo-Assyrian royal inscriptions (744-609 BC) represent only a small, but important part of the vast Neo-Assyrian text corpus. They are written in the Standard Babylonian dialect of Akkadian and provide valuable insight into royal exploits, both on the battlefield and at home, royal ideology, and Assyrian religion. Most of our understanding of the political history of Assyria, and to some extent of Babylonia, comes from these sources. Because this large corpus of texts has not previously been published in one place, the RINAP Project will provide up-to-date editions (with English translations) of Assyrian royal inscriptions from the reign of Tiglath-pileser III (744-727 BC) to the reign of Aššur-uballiṭ II (611-609 BC) in seven print volumes and online, in a fully lemmatized and indexed format. The aim of the project is to make this vast text corpus easily accessible to scholars, students, and the general public. RINAP Online will allow those interested in Assyrian culture, history, language, religion, and texts to efficiently search Akkadian and Sumerian words appearing in the inscriptions and English words used in the translations. Project data will be fully integrated into the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI) and the Open Richly Annotated Cuneiform Corpus (Oracc).
    The National Endowment for the Humanities awarded the RINAP Project research grants in 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2015 to help carry out its work. The publications of the RINAP Project are modeled on those of the now-defunct Royal Inscriptions of Mesopotamia (RIM) Project and carry on where its Assyrian Periods sub-series (RIMA) ended.
