Open Access Journal: CIPEG E-News (Comité international pour l’Égyptologie)

The “Comité international pour l’Égyptologie” (CIPEG) is one of 30 International Committees of the International Council of Museums (ICOM). The scope of CIPEG deals with the international representation of Egyptian collections and museums in a worldwide community. CIPEG provides a unique panel for museum professionals and scholars who deal with Ancient Egyptian heritage.

The Mission of CIPEG is to promote collaboration among colleagues for the study, preservation, and presentation of Egyptian collections, monuments and sites. In addition, it supports collections of Egyptian art and archaeology, including the heritage of the Ancient Sudan, with a special focus on smaller collections, within the framework of ICOM and in close co-operation with the International Association of Egyptologists (IAE).

CIPEG also seeks to promote collaboration among museums, universities and research institutes as well as supplying partnership opportunities, sharing resources, knowledge and experience for an international forum, and holding an annual conference. CIPEG frames resolutions and policies to promote actions and, if requested, advises museum staff, scholars or institutions.

Archaeology in Greece Online / Chronique des fouilles en ligne

[First posted in AWOL 30 November 2009. Updated 9 July 2016]

Archaeology in Greece Online / Chronique des fouilles en ligne
La Chronique des fouilles en ligne / Archeology on line résulte de la fusion de deux entreprises éditoriales anciennes : la Chronique des fouilles publiée annuellement par l’EfA dans le BCH, ainsi que les Archeological Reports publiés par la Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies et la British School at Athens, qui continuent à paraître sous forme imprimée, mais dans une version plus synthétique. Géré conjointement par l’École française d’Athènes et la British School at Athens, le traitement des données est réparti par région et reflète les traditions, l’histoire et l’implantation des deux Écoles. L’enregistrement apparaît donc soit en anglais soit en français, mais le moteur de recherche, quelle que soit la langue utilisée, renvoie toujours à l’ensemble de la base.

Archaeology in Greece Online combines the Chronique published annually in the BCH by the French School at Athens, and Archaeology in Greece published as part of the annual Archaeological Reports by the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies and the British School at Athens (which continues to appear in print in a new review format).
The project is managed jointly by the French School at Athens and the British School at Athens: data processing is divided by region and reflects the traditions, history and research foci of the two schools. Texts are thus either in English or in French, but the search engine draws on the entire database regardless of language.
Η ιστοσελίδα Χρονικά των Ανασκαφών Onlineπροκύπτει από τη συνένωση  δύο προηγούμενων εκδοτικών εγχειρημάτων : τα Χρονικά των Ανασκαφώνπου δημοσιεύονται ετησίως από τη Γαλλική Σχολή Αθηνών στο BCH και τις Αρχαιολογικές Αναφορέςπου δημοσιεύονται από τη Society of the Promotion of Hellenic Studies και τη Βρετανική Σχολή Αθηνών. Αμφότερα, εξακολουθούν να εκδίδονται σε έντυπη μορφή, αλλά σε μία πιο συνθετική μορφή.  Με από κοινού διαχείριση της Γαλλικής Αρχαιολογικής Σχολής και της Βρετανικής Αρχαιολογικής Σχολής, η επεξεργασία των δεδομένων έχει κατανεμηθεί γεωγραφικά υποδηλώνοντας τις παραδόσεις, την ιστορία και τους χώρους της επιστημονικής δραστηριότητας κάθε μίας Σχολής. Έτσι οι αναφορές θα είναι είτε στην Αγγλική είτε στην Γαλλική, αλλά η μηχανή αναζήτησης θα παραπέμπει πάντοτε σε όλο το υλικό της βάσης ανεξάρτητα της γλώσσας που χρησιμοποιήθηκε.

The Egypt Exploration Society DELTA SURVEY: An information centre for the archaeological sites of Lower Egypt

The Egypt Exploration Society DELTA SURVEY: An information centre for the archaeological sites of Lower Egypt
Information on the archaeological sites of the Delta is presented here in the form web-pages containing an alphabetical listing of sites. Where a substantial amount of information is available, or photographs of the site exist, links are provided to supplementary pages. The site-names in most cases are those of the Survey of Egypt maps. The material is offered as a source of reference and a tool for the planning of new projects.  The letters 'T' and 'K' in the lists stand for 'Tell' and 'Kom' respectively, Arabic words for 'mound', describing the usual appearance of archaeological sites in the region.

Pleiades Conceptual Overview

An introduction to Pleiades and the types of information resources it contains.
Pleiades is a gazetteer of ancient places. Pleiadesplaces are conceptual entities: the term applies to any locus of human attention, material or intellectual, in a real-world geographic context. A settlement mentioned in an ancient text is a place, whether or not it can now be located; an archaeological site is a place; a modern city located atop an ancient settlement is a place. Basically, any spatial feature that is connected to the pre-modern past and that a human being has noticed and discussed as such between the past and the present is a place.
Places in Pleiades can therefore represent:
  • areas of fairly intensive human activity like settlements and sanctuaries;
  • large-scale geological features known in antiquity like mountains, rivers, lakes;
  • political, social, or cultural constructs like provinces and mining districts; and
  • individual structures, when they have been referred to individually by ancient sources or modern scholars (e.g., the Parthenon, the Queen’s Megaron at Knossos, the Basilica Iulia, the House of the Faun).
Places are entirely abstract, conceptual entities. They are objects of thought, speech, or writing, not tangible, mappable points on the earth’s surface. They have no spatial or temporal attributes of their own. A place can exist in name only in an ancient source, without any material correlate; conversely, an archaeological site can exist as a place without an ancient name.

The spatial aspects of Pleiadesplaces (i.e., latitude and longitude coordinates in space), as well as their ancient and modern names, are addressed through two other conceptual entities: locations and names. Temporal characteristics are also recorded at the name and location levels.

Locations in Pleiades connect places to coordinates in space. A location identifies a specific area of interest on the earth’s surface that is associated with a place during a particular date range. A place can contain multiple locations. Locations, on the other hand, are associated with one and only one place. Depending on the state of the evidence, the association between location and place may vary in certainty; some places, attested by name in ancient sources, may have no associated location at all because modern scholarship cannot pinpoint reliably the ancient site or area in question.
Names in Pleiades are also connected with places. A name reflects the identity of a place in human language, not its physical location in the landscape. Names have no spatial coordinates, but they are always annotated with the time period(s) of the textual source(s) in which they are attested. As with locations, a single place can have multiple names, but an individual name can be associated with one and only one place. This is true even if the same sequence of characters is also attested as a name for another place; Pleiades treats these “identical” names as separate entities.

Ancient Ports – Ports Antiques: THE catalogue of Ancient Ports

[First posted in AWOL 22 April 2012, updated 9 July 2016]

Ancient Ports – Ports Antiques

A catalogue of Ancient Ports and Harbours

This web site presents work done to collect, identify and locate ancient harbours and ports. It is based on a study of existing documentation.
The result is a list of around 4000 ancient ports
based on the writings of 70 ancient authors
and over 100 modern authors, incl. the Barrington Atlas.
A few “potential ancient harbours” from a nautical point of view,
have been added,
based on nautical guides/pilots used by modern sailors.
If you are looking for the location of a specific port, use the search engine (top right of this page) that will lead you to the page where this port is mentioned.
If you are uncertain about the spelling, you may enter just the part of the name you are certain of into the search engine.
This work is published in 4 volumes, all available in pdf versions, and most of it is reproduced on this web site:
Volume I gives the list of ports and a bibliography
of ancient and modern authors
You can also download the latest updated xls table.
Volume II gives the French translations of the texts
of the listed ancient authors.

Volume III provides some notes on ancient ships, on ancient measures and ancient maps, and on Claudius Ptolemy, on ancient structures and on some ancient ports.
Volume IV gives twenty stories about ancient mariners.

Museo Virtuale della Valle del Tevere

Museo Virtuale della Valle del Tevere
II Museo Virtuale della Valle del Tevere, realizzato dal CNR ITABC, è un sistema integrato di conoscenza, valorizzazione e comunicazione del paesaggio culturale della media Valle del Tevere, nell'area a Nord di Roma compresa tra il Monte Soratte e Fidene e tra Sacrofano e Palombara Sabina (circa 60 x 40 km).  Obiettivi sono la ricerca, la disseminazione culturale, la promozione del territorio.
A partire dalla raccolta dei dati esistenti, dalla documentazione digitale e dal rilievo topografico, sono stati ricostruiti in 3D sia il paesaggio della media valle  del Tevere, nella sua evoluzione geologica e antropica attraverso varie fasi cronologiche (da 3 milioni di anni fa ad oggi), sia alcuni siti archeologici (Lucus Feroniae, Villa dei Volusii)  e aree di interesse storico e naturalistico (Monte Soratte e Riserva Naturale del Tevere-Farfa).

The Virtual Museum of the Tiber Valley (MuViVaTe), developed ​​by CNR ITABC, is an integrated system of knowledge, promotion and communication of the cultural landscape of the Tiber river’s middle valley, in the area north of Rome, between the Mount Soratte and the town of Fidene, and between Sacrofano and Palombara Sabina towns (about 60 x 40 km). Main goals of the project are research, cultural dissemination, and promotion of the territory. From the collection of existing data, from digital documentation and topographic survey, the landscape of the middle Tiber valley has been reconstructed in 3D, in its geological and anthropogenic evolution through various chronological phases (from 3 million years ago till the present), together with some archaeological sites (Lucus Feroniae, Volusii’s Villa) and contexts of historical and natural interest(Soratte Mountain and the Tevere-Farfa Natural Reserve).

Please participate in the Open Access Cooperative Publishing Study

With much change afoot in scholarly publishing, The Open Access Cooperative Publishing Study is assessing ways of moving subscription journals to open access by having libraries pay them the equivalent of their previous subscription fees.

With the support of the MarArthur Foundation, we started by surveying research libraries, finding that over 85 percent have an interest in exploring this further (among the 150 libraries responding to date).

We are now turning to subscription journal editors and publishers, with a parallel survey that both explains the concept, risks, and advantages, while asking you to assess this alternative to
subscriptions and APCs. While subscription journals are the principal focus of this study, this cooperative includes a place for existing open access journals, and their editors and publishers are welcome to participate in this survey as well.

Open Access Journal: VISUAL PAST: A Journal for the Study of Past Visual Cultures

VISUAL PAST is an open-access online journal dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of past visual cultures. It refers to the study of images and the visual as roughly outlined by visual culture studies, Bildwissenschaften and similar areas which became apparent in the wake of the iconic and the pictorial turn. VISUAL PAST is understood as a forum for diverse directions, not privileging certain theories, methodological positions, or paradigms. Accordingly, it is not devoted to singular disciplines but favours trans- and interdisciplinary approaches.

Sasanika Archaeological Reports

A Survey of the Archaeology of the Sasanian Period during the past three decades

Ali Mousavi, Los Angeles County Museum of Art
jalaliA large number of monuments, buildings, rock reliefs, inscriptions, and collections of coins and manuscripts have formed our present image of Sasanian history and culture. The history of the Sasanian empire can be easily written and understood without having resort to archaeological fieldwork. In this regard, the best example is Arthur Christensen’s history of the Sasanians, l’Iran sous les Sassanides, which was published in 1936 in Copenhagen, a masterpiece that has always been an indispensable source of information for historians and archaeologists. In contrast, the investigation of material culture in the Sasanian period essentially depends on archaeological remains and artifacts. ... READ MORE

Sasanian Vaults

Morvarid Mazhari Motlagh, Tarbiat Modaress University, Tehran
esasanika-16-fimageThere is no information available on the history of architecture and construction of vaults in the structure of buildings: however with men leaving the caves and establishing buildings it should have some applications in the past. Among the primitive vaults in the Iranian architecture we can mention the mass grave of Teppe Ahar in Haft Tappeh within the ancient time of the art of the medieval Elam about 1400 B.C. and the temple (Ziggurat) of Choghazanbil in the town of Dor-Antash (12th, 13th centuries B.C.) in Khuzestan province. Meanwhile, a Median fortress has been discovered at the Noushijan valley, near Hamedan which has a fireplace with a veranda and oval and barrel vaults constructed on the basis of technical and mathematical principles (Zomarshidi, 1994: 3-4). ...

Archaeological Excavations in the So-Called “Palace of Sāsān” at Sarvestān, Fars

Ali-Reza Askari Chāverdi, University of Shiraz, Iran
Archaeological-01-fimageSarvestān is a township en route from Shirāz to Dārāb. This township serves as the first reststop along the route from Shirāz to eastern Fārs, some 65 km to the east of Shirāz. Both Shirāz and Sarvestān are located in one the more fertile NW‐SE plains in the southern Zagros Mountains. The large Mahārlou Lake (also known as the “Salt Lake”) is located in the middle of this plain. The water from streams in Shiraz flow into the northern parts of the latter lake. The Mahārlou Lake divides the plain into two northern and southern parts. The city of Shirāz is located in the northern half and the township of Sarvestān in the southern part, some 20 km to the southeast of the Lake. ... READ MORE

Sasanians in the Persian Gulf According to Archaeological Data

Farhang Khademi Nadooshan; Seyyed Mehdi Mousavi; H. Tofighian
Archaeological-02-fimageArchaeological investigations in the northern coast of the Persian Gulf and in few sites in Khuzistan have yielded evidence for the use of amphorae in Iran, in the Parthian and Sasanian period, in burials as well as trade. No evidence for production centers of amphorae in Iran has yet been found. Nonetheless, given the paucity of excavations and surveys on the coastal regions of Iran and the lack of chemical analysis of the available evidence, the possibility that at least some of the consumed amphorae where made locally must not be ruled out. The amphorae found in these southern regions are mainly of “Torpedo” type. The present paper summarizes the most significant finds of amphorae in the ancient ports of Persian Gulf including discoveries in the course of underwater investigations of Rig Port in 2001.   ...

New Finds from a Parthian-Sasanian City near the Persian Gulf: “Korān”

Archaeological-03-fimageThe fall of the Achaemenid Empire at the hands of Alexander of Macedonia involved destructive consequences for the Province of Fars. As the homeland of the Achaemenids, Fars was of special significance and suffered repeated attacks from Alexander and his successors. The Achaemenid capital and royal palaces were burnt to the ground and those of princely rank were scattered. At the same time the particular geographical position of “Pārs” was an obstacle to the unimpeded power of Alexander and his replacements. Although the northern strip of the province was under the direct rule of the Selucids, historical evidence indicates that in the third century before Christ, regional power-brokers in the south of Pārs gained a relative degree of independence.   ...

Archaeological-04-fimageThe highland district of Ābdānān is located in the southern portion of Ilam province. It is dominated by the mountain of Kabir‐Kuh which stands over it like a massive wall. In 2001, a team from the Archaeological Department of Bu‐Ali Sina University conducted a regional survey of this area. In total, 51 archeological sites were identified during this ground‐breaking survey. The site of the city of Julian is one of the most remarkable of these. The newly‐discovered Julian chahartaq is a fire temple belonging to the Sasanid era. Like many other fire temples of that time, Julian was built with stone and plaster mortar. This chahartaq is the surviving part of the heart of a larger structure, and consists of four stone wall and piers of different sizes surrounded by an ambulatory passageway. ... READ MORE

Siāh-Kal: A Newly Discovered Chahar Taq in Zarneh of the Ilam Province

Mohammad-Javad Jafari; Milad Vandaee, Islamic Azad University, Hamadan, Iran
SiahKalMapping and studying religious monuments of each period, beyond the scale of single sites, sheds light on several social, cultural, and political aspects of the period under study. Given the significance of Zoroastrianism as the state religion in the Sasanian period, mapping and studying Sasanian Zoroastrian monuments form a fundamental component of our understanding of various aspects of the Sasanian Empire. What follows is a report on the recently mapped Chahar Taq of Siāh Kal, part of an ongoing project of mapping Sasanian religious monuments. The term Chahar Taq refers to the central domed space in the Zoroastrian fire temples of Sasanian and Early Islamic period. The text survived from the Sasanian period report on the construction of Chahar Taqs under the patronage of kings and elites. ... 

Siraf Archeological Report

Soma Khakzad
Historical sources inform us of the significance of maritime activity in the history of ancient Persia. Certain phases of the maritime history of ancient Persia are in particular highlighted in the sources at our disposal, for example the account of the Salamis wars between the Persia and the Greece in the Achaemenid period or the account of the sea trade between Persia and Far East in the Sasanian and early Islamic Periods (Casson 1971; Hasan 1928). We know that the Silk Road passed through the northern coast of the Persian Gulf (Casson 1991) and we know of several ancient ports on this route, such as Kong, Gonāweh, Lengeh, Qeshm, etc (Ra’in 1371).

The Architecture and Status of Iranian Temples in the Sasanian Era

Ehsan Tahmasbi, Islamic Azad University, Sarvestan, Iran
The present work describes a historical study of Iranian temples in the Sasanian era. The most important questions addressed here are on the way the rituals were performed, the status and significance of the temples in this era and the previous empires as well as architectural arrangement and the most important spaces of these temples mostly referred to as fire temples. Toward this end, first, the most important characteristics of Iranian society in the Sasanian era including the relationship between religion and government and status of the clergy among social classes are studied. Then, the status of temples in that era including the ceremonies and events held in the buildings are addressed. In the third section, architectural arrangement of the Parthian temples will be examined and in the final section, the Sasanian temples, mostly fire temples, are explored. The results indicated that both religious ceremonies including prayers before the sacred fire and ritual festivals and imperial rituals were celebrated in the fire temples. Main spaces of famous fire temples are: Eyvan, dome chamber, and courtyard arranged in a row on an axis.

Archaeological-09-fimageSar‐Gandāb is located in the western part of Iran, in the Zagros Mountains, close to the border between the provinces of Ilam and Lorestan (Fig1). The geographical coordinates of the sites are 33°30’21.17″N, 46°53’44.29″E. Sar‐Gandāb is 36 km northeast of Seymareh Dam, as the crew flies (Fig2). It is possible that the strategic significance of the site in antiquity was more than what present conditions suggest: Sar‐Gandāb is located on a natural northwest‐southeast passage through a narrow valley of Zagros. At some locations, valley is as narrow as three kilometers. But, at the vicinity of Sar‐Gandāb, the valley widens and reaches a maximum width of four kilometers (Fig3). Water is abundant. In addition to the River Seymareh, a Sulphur spring originates near the site and its water is used for irrigated agriculture (Fig6).

Qalāt/Qobad Fort: A Sasanian-Islamic Fort in Kavār, Southeast of Shiraz

Parsa Ghasemi; Maryam Esmaili; Greg Watson
qalatThe county of Kavār is located about 50 km southeast of Shiraz, on one of the old caravan routes between Shiraz, the Persian Gulf and the east regions of Iran. An archaeological survey of the Tasūj sub-district of Kavār was undertaken by Parsa Ghasemi in the winter of 2012. Thirty four archaeological sites were identified. One of the most important sites proved to be the fort of Qalāt or Qobād, on the Mount Qalāt, southwest of the Mahārlū Lake, between Sarvestān and Kavār. Surface finds suggest that the fort was in use from the Sasanian (3rd-7th centuries CE) to the Early and Middle Islamic period (7th-12th centuries CE). This paper summarizes the results of the survey of the Qalāt Fort.

The Northernmost Zoroastrian Fire-Temple in the World

Touraj Daryaee, University of California, Irvine
AtashKadehThe Caucasus is a land of diverse population and beliefs. Today, Christians, Muslims, Jews, and Yazidis live in cities and villages in the valleys and gorges of the region. One religion that had a strong impact on ancient Armenia, Georgia, and the Republic of Azerbijan was Zoroastrianism. While the sources and views of Zoroastrianism are mainly from its homeland, Iran, Zoroastrianism also flourished in the Caucasus in conjunction with the local, native religions of the region. Kartveli or Georgia was converted to Christianity in the fourth century CE. The traditional date given for this momentous event in the history of Georgia is 337 CE. According to Christian sources, King Mirian (Mihran) converted from “paganism,” but a closer look at the sources suggests that the king and the people of ancient Georgia were worshipers of Ohrmazd (Ahura Mazda).

A Study of the Imagery and Place of Women in the Sasanian Period: Sigillographic Evidence

Translated by:
Greg Watson
bowl-royal-banquet copyAn important source for the history of certain periods is the seals and sealings that date from them. This applies especially to the Sasanian period of Iranian history, from which only a relatively slight corpus of epigraphic material has survived. A certain proportion of the thousands of seals we have from this period are associated with women. Studying these seals may offer researchers interesting insights into the place of women in Sasanian society. Of course, the practice of representing images of women on seals has long antecedents, and on Sasanian seals, the only evidence that enables us to identify the owner of a seal as a woman, with any degree of certainty, is the existence of a female name in the accompanying inscription.The majority of seals bearing an image of a woman also have an inscription in the Pahlavi script where the name is a compound that includes the suffix dukht, meaning „lady‟ or „daughter‟. The image of a woman accompanied by a female name on a seal suggests that woman‟s individual autonomy, right to property ownership, and possibly, sometimes, some sort of official administrative position or post held by that woman.

The Tang-e Qandil Bas-Relief: A Reconsideration

Milād Vandāee, Department of Archaeology, Hamedan Branch, Islamic Azad University, Hamedan, Iran
Translated by:
Greg Watson
tang-eQandilThe Sasanian bas-relief in the Qandil Gorge, is one that has been the subject of much debate in the archaeological community over the identities of the individuals represented in it. The work itself is one of the least accessible examples of Sasanian art, and was the last of its type to come to the attention of archaeologists. This paper is the outcome of three investigations conducted by the author in the years 2008, 2009 and 2012, which were presented in a Persian article titled “A Review of the Depiction of Narseh in Sasanian Pictorial Bas-Reliefs”, published in volume one of the book Sasanian Pictorial Bas-Reliefs I written by this author, which compared the Tang-e Qandil relief with representations in the Barm-e Dilak I and Naghsh-e Rostam VIII reliefs (Vandāii, 2013). The current paper first considers the location of the relief and its dimensions. It then briefly describes the composition and discusses the varying understandings of different scholars. The paper concludes with this writer‟s own considered view of the identities of the figures depicted in the work.

e-sas-arch16Archeological surveys conducted in the valley of Kazerun show that this plane is one of the areas in Fars that has enjoyed human interest since prehistoric times, especially the Neolithic period which gained profound importance during the Sasanian era. The establishment of the city of Bishapur, ordered by Shapur I is one of the reasons pertaining to this planes rise in importance. In the summer of 2005, the monuments and remnants of the Kazerun plane were studied and prepared to be registered. Ultimately registration dossiers were provided for some of the findings. Among the identified remnants and findings were some Sasanian areas which have not yet been introduced.

Gompu: A Neglected and Remote Sasanian Dam

Mohammad Jafar Malekzadeh
Translated by:
Soodabeh Malekzadeh
arch17-smLocal people know this dam by the name of Gompu. Gompu is constructed in a tight and deep valley situated in Mount Bol[1], Lārestan, Fārs, Iran. This specific choice of name can be related to the Persian word gomp. In the majority of the dialects of Fārs, gomp or γomp means a natural pond or pool no matter what the size, and makes complete sense as we see that down the valley where the dam is located, there is a pond or gomp that is in fact a more or less round pool with stone walls[2]. Water flows into the stone pool both from the river bed and from water seeping into it from below, which leaves the pool full of water even months after the flood has subsided. Water flows from south-east to north-west in the valley and the axis of the dam is at right angle to the flow direction.

[1]Bol in Middle Persian means “high”.
[2] Some neighboring villages consider the stone pool downstream of the dam as a more or less sacred site with healing powers. Still to this day locals take the aged or the ill to the pool to bathe, and hopefully be healed.

The Evolution of Religious Architecture in the Sasanian Period

Ali Hozhabri; Editor: Milad Vandaee

RelArchThe chahārtāgh – meaning „four arches‟ – was the most distinctive and emblematic religious architectural form produced in ancient Iran, particularly in the Sasanian period (ca. 224-650 CE). It is a true Iranian national architectural symbol (Godard 1371/1992: 78). The essential architectural plan of the chahārtāgh was a form much employed for religious buildings of Iran in the pre-Islamic period and after, either in standalone form or as an element of a larger complex (Neyestāni et. al, 1391/2012: 173). The chahārtāgh is a symmetrical architectural form on a square plan with four corner piers that form the pillars for the arches and support a domed roof.

شاهنشاهی ساسانیان(224- 651.م) را مي‌توان يكي از پررونق‌ترين و طلايي‌ترين دوران‌هاي فرهنگ، هنر و معماري در تاريخ و باستان‌شناسي ايران دانست. نقوش برجسته‌ي اين دوره يكي از هنرهاي مهم و نمادین است كه عموماً كاربردي سلطنتي دارد، و تنها توسط خاندان ساسانی اجازه ی استفاده از این سبک هنری وجود داشته است. اما در دوران بهرام دوم، فضای استفاده از این هنر کمی بازتر می شود و ما می توانیم انعطاف هنری آن را بیشتر مشاهده کنیم، هر چند پس از مرگ بهرام دوم، دیگر چنین اتفاقی رخ نمی دهد. نگارنده طي سه بررسي خصوصي در سالهاي 1387 ، 1389 و 1390  در منطقه‌ي فارس، كرمانشاه و سلماس از تمامي نقوش اين دوران ديدن كرده و سعي در بازبيني و تدوين اين نقوش داشته‌ام. هدف ما در این مقاله شناسایی هویت شاهان موجود در دو نقش برجسته ی گویوم و برم دلک دو است، و تلاش بر آن داریم تا هنرمند و سبک هنری آن را بهتر بازشناسیم، در این میان به طور اختصار نیز سخنی از نقش برجسته برم دلک سه انجام خواهد گرفت.

Open Access Journal: ὅρμος: Ricerche di Storia Antica

 [First posted May 30 2010. Updated 11 July 2016]

ὅρμος: Ricerche di Storia Antica
ISSN 2036-587X
La rivista ὅρμος, nata nel 1999, mantiene intatta, nella nuova veste elettronica, le finalità che ne hanno, sin qui, orientato l’itinerario scientifico e alle quali rinvia il titolo. Con “porto” vogliamo significare, infatti, non solo le aperture a tematiche di ampio respiro su molteplici aspetti dell’antico mondo mediterraneo, la cui esplorazione in senso interdisciplinare è stata da sempre affidata a studiosi di alto profilo scientifico, ma anche l’accoglienza a contributi delle leve più giovani della ricerca storico-antica in tutte le sue articolazioni. ὅρμος è anche la sede scientifica delle attività del dottorato di ricerca in “Storia della Sicilia e del Mediterraneo antico”. La rivista è aperta alla pubblicazione di contributi in cinque lingue (italiano, inglese, francese, tedesco e spagnolo). Ogni contributo proposto alla redazione è sottoposto alla lettura di due o più membri del comitato scientifico o di esperti esterni.

Open Access Journal: PAN: Rivista di Filologia Latina

PAN: Rivista di Filologia Latina
ISSN: 0390-3141
E-ISSN: 2284-0478
La rivista Pan. Studi dell’Istituto di Filologia latina è stata fondata nel 1973 da Giusto Monaco, con l’intento di testimoniare un impegno di ricerca nell’ambito della Filologia classica e di contribuire all’affermarsi in sede scientifica dell’Istituto di Filologia latina, da poco costituitosi. Si proponeva coma una miscellanea di articoli e brevi saggi relativi alla letteratura latina e alle discipline ad essa affini, la cui periodicità non veniva fissata in partenza ma si faceva dipendere «dalla frequenza con cui si avesse qualcosa di concreto da dire in poche pagine». L’intitolazione Pan si doveva alla forte carica simbolica e semantica contenuta nel nome. Documentare la presenza a Palermo di un’attività scientifica nell’ambito della letteratura latina e promuovere una scuola attraverso un severo esercizio filologico, senza concessioni a facili e generici approcci, appaiono dunque come caratteristiche precipue che distinguono la rivista sin dalla nascita. Allievo, alla scuola Normale di Pisa, di Giorgio Pasquali, Giusto Monaco impresse una svolta di grande efficacia e serietà alla storia degli studi classici nell’Università di Palermo e attraverso le raccolte di Pan, da lui seguite con dedizione per circa venti anni, creò un centro di studi al quale afferirono giovani ricercatori, poi affermatisi, latinisti e filologi classici, medievisti, studiosi di letteratura cristiana antica e di teatro greco e latino, che trovarono nella rivista la sede cui destinare naturalmente i propri contributi. Il numero 11-12 comprende la silloge degli “Scritti minori” di Giusto Monaco, curata da Domenico Romano, come i successivi 13-14, a partire dai quali viene assunto il sottotitolo “Studi dell’Istituto di Filologia latina Giusto Monaco”, in omaggio al fondatore e ideatore della rivista, nel frattempo scomparso. Negli anni successivi, il numero unico 15-16 raccoglie gli studi in onore di Domenico Romano, dedicatigli dai docenti dell’Istituto di Filologia greca e di Filologia Latina: i numerosi contributi di Letteratura greca ivi compresi non rappresentano una novità, in quanto Pan è sempre stata una pubblicazione aperta all’intero campo della filologia classica. Il numero 17 contiene poi gli scritti minori di Cataldo Roccaro, valoroso medievista, docente di Storia della Letteratura latina medioevale presso l’Università di Palermo, prematuramente sottratto ala sua attività, cui è rivolta la Miscellanea di studi in memoria compresa nel numero 18-19. Quest’ultimo volume di circa 500 pagine si apre a contributi di vasto respiro, che coprono l’arco dei saperi relativi all’antichità, al medioevo e oltre. Da questo momento in poi la rivista si qualifica come “Studi del Dipartimento di Civiltà Euro-mediterranee e di Studi Classici, Cristiani, Bizantini, Medievali, Umanistici”, seguendo l’avvenuta trasformazione del precedente Istituto e arricchendo così il suo raggio d’azione verso diversi settori. Da questa data, il 2001, si dà anche una regolarità, attraverso una direzione, assunta da Gianna Petrone, un comitato di redazione, una segreteria ecc., cercando di mantenere, ove possibile, una scadenza annuale.

Landsberger Archive
Benno Landsberger (Friedek 21 April 1890 - Chicago 26 April 1968), one of the forefathers of Assyriology and of Akkadian lexicography,  bequeathed his private library to the Institute of Archaeology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. For many years now B. Landsberger's books make part of the library of Assyriology at the Institute of Archaeology in Jerusalem.

In April 2012, while taking account of material stored in the basement of the Institute of Archaeology, Nathan Wasserman found two boxes and identified them as containing B. Landsberger's estate – private letters, mss. of public lectures, some photos, and many notes and notebooks of his early days as a student in Leipzig –  totally unknown hitherto.

The material was collected and arranged by N.W. and parts of it were scanned for public reference (by Mijal Ribco).

In June 2012 Michael P. Streck went over the documents and prepared a preliminary catalogue of the estate.

As more archival documents and letters of B. Landsberger are found at the Altorientalisches Institut in Leipzig, M.P.S. and N.W. intend to publish the available personal material B. Landsberger in its entirety - from Jerusalem and from Leipzig - in the near future. [The correspondence of B. Landsberger with A. Goetze is kept at the Yale archives - information courtesy B. R. Foster].

The material presented in this site is for reference only.

Introducing Nammu, ORACC's new ATF editor

Editing ATF with Nammu
Oracc Notes and News

Introducing Nammu, Oracc's new ATF editor

Nammu is Oracc's new, platform-independent editing software for creating transliterations, lemmatisations and translations of cuneiform texts. It is being written for us by Raquel Alegre and Jens Nielsen of UCL's Research Software Development Team.
If you are an existing Oracc content-creator and have been editing ATF in Emacs, that's all you need to do. You'll find that Nammu is an intuitive replacement for Emacs, and that you can use all the Oracc keyboard shortcuts as usual.

New to ATF?

If you haven't edited ATF before, you may also want to download:
You should also read the online help pages on learning and using Oracc ATF and on lemmatising.
Do contact any one of the Oracc Steering Group (Eleanor, Jamie, Niek, or Steve) if you would like to have your own Oracc project space (which can be public or private, as you like).

Tips and tricks

Nammu now has all its core funcationality – you can edit real texts with it unproblematically -- but it is still under development. If you like you can join the oracc/nammu group on Github to:
Here are some ease-of-use features that we're currently working to enhance:
  • At the moment there is no line-wrapping, so you have to scroll across for long lines.
  • Nor is there any search/replace facility yet — also coming soon, we hope.
  • There's no split screen option yet, either, so for the moment I suggest that you create translations in your usual word processor as you lemmatise, then paste them into Nammu for validation when you finish. It works for me!
For more details see here.

More about Nammu

Nammu has some built-in help but you can also:
  • watch a video of me using Nammu to edit a tablet from Tell Khaiber
  • watch the whole video, in which I introduce Oracc and Tell Khaiber
  • read Raquel's slides about the programming and principles behind Nammu
  • ask any one of the Oracc Steering Group (Eleanor, Jamie, Niek, or Steve) for further help!

Kadmos is a peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary academic journal, published by Ilia State University (Tbilisi), which aims to challenge, provoke and excite thinking in the areas of the classics, literature and orature, linguistics, philosophy, cultural anthropology (ethnography, ethnology and mythology) and history (archeology). The journal appears annually and is sponsored by the Ilia State University. The editors welcome original contributions in the form of articles, reviews, notes from scholars in the humanities that will promote and foster its aims. The Journal’s Polemics section is intended to enhance debate between authors and the wider community. Polemics pieces can be mainly considered as responses to a published article, a shorter research note or report, or a commentary on research issues or professional practices. The Journal also contains a Reviews section.
The journal seeks to achieve the following objectives:
  • To promote inter-disciplinary research in all areas of the humanities.
  • To assist researchers at the pre-and post-doctorate levels, with a wealth of new and original material.
  • To make ideas, topics, and processes in the humanities accessible to the interested public.
All research articles published in Research Section of the journal have undergone double-blind peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by at least two anonymous referees. Where a call for papers is issued for Special Issues, submissions passed for review by the Issue Editor are subject to the same double-blind review process as submissions to Research Section.
All papers are expected to be original contributions and not previously published nor currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. The reviewing lasts at least 4 weeks and the final approval or rejection will be send to authors by the end of October.
Papers should be 10 to 21 type written pages in English or Georgian, including endnotes (see For Authors)

Open Access Journal Backlist: Studi Micenei ed Egeo-Anatolici

[First posted in AWOL 22 August 2015, updated 13 July 2016 (articles from 1997 to 2012 are available for free download)]

Studi Micenei ed Egeo-Anatolici
ISSN: 1126-6651
Founded in Rome in 1966 at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), Studi Micenei ed Egeo-Anatolici (SMEA) is the most important Italian journal, and one of the most important at an international level, for the history and archaeology of the Aegean basin and the Eastern Mediterranean in the Bronze and the Early Iron Age. While originally part of the Incunabula Graeca series, since 1992 SMEA has acquired an autonomous status.

As a result of a major restructuring at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, in 2015 SMEA Nuova Serie has become a journal of Istituto di Studi sul Mediterraneo Antico. Its format has been redesigned and its content has become accessible online. SMEA Nuova Serie is a peer-reviewed journal. It appears annually in printed and digital forms, and is produced and distributed by Edizioni Quasar. Occasionally SMEA Nuova Serie publishes supplementary volumes. Anna Lucia D’Agata is the Editor, and the journal has an Editorial Board and an Advisory Editorial Board including scholars of international repute.

Access to the digital content is through individual subscription and institutional subscription. Some past articles are available for download in the archives section of this website.

SMEA Archives include volumes 1-27 (1966-1989) and 39-54 (1997-2012).
At the moment, all the articles from 1997 to 2012 are available for free download.
