American Numismatic Society Online Resources

 [First posted in AWOL 10 October 2009, updated 13 August 2016]

American Numismatic Society Online Resources

The ANS actively promotes the online use of its resources as both open source and Open Access with appropriate citation. The collections database and library catalog are available online and have become essential parts of numismatic research, along with major international collaborations such as Online Coins of the Roman Empire, Coinage of the Roman Republic Online, Pella, and Dar al-Kutub. The ANS also provides web hosting to the Nomisma project, a collaborative effort to provide stable digital representations of numismatic concepts and entities.
Nomisma serves as the backbone of two corpus projects currently under development: OCRE (Online coins of the Roman Empire) and, in collaboration with the Kittredge Numismatic Foundation, Coins of the Papal States.
  • MANTIS: The ANS Collection Database: MANTIS serves as the online home for the ANS's permanent collection. Hundreds of thousands of records, related images, and other contextual data are constantly updated while new records are added regularly.
  • DONUM: The ANS Library Catalog: The Database of Online Numismatic Materials (DONUM) is the online catalogue for the ANS library. Search the collections for books, journals, periodicals, auction catalogues, and more.
  • ARCHER: The ANS Archives Catalog: ARCHER is the online repository for the ANS Archives, which includes notes, letters, and other ephemera associated with the institutions history.
  • ANS Digital Library: The ANS Digital Library houses unpublished American and international PhD dissertations and MA theses on numismatic topics. Open Access eBooks and scanned auction catalogues will soon be available for free use.

  • Nomisma: Stable Numismatic Concepts: Nomisma.org is a collaborative project to provide stable digital representations of numismatic concepts according to the principles of Linked Open Data. These take the form of http URIs that also provide access to reusable information about those concepts, along with links to other resources.
  • CHRR: Coin Hoards of the Roman Republic: Coin hoards of the Roman Republic Online is a database of Roman Republican coin hoards mainly from the period 155 BC to AD 2. This database began life as a personal research database constructed by Kris Lockyear using a combination of published data and Michael Crawford's personal archive now housed the in the British Museum.
  • CRRO: Coinage of the Roman Republic Online: Coinage of the Roman Republic Online aims to provide in effect an online version of Michael Crawford's 1974 publication Roman Republican Coinage (RRC), which is still the primary typology used for the identification of Roman Republican coin types.
  • PELLA: Coinage of the Macedonian Kings of the Argead Dynasty: PELLA is a research tool designed to present the catalog of the individual coin types of the Argead kings from Alexander I (ruled 498–454 BC), the first of the Macedonian kings to strike coins, down to Philip III Arrhidaeus (ruled 323–317 BC), the last of the titular kings to do so. Included as well as are the numerous posthumous civic and successor coinages struck in the names of the kings.
  • Art of Devastation: A Web-based Catalogue of First World War Medallic Art: The Art of Devastation is a research tool designed to help in the identification, cataloguing, and contextualization of the abundant and varied types of non-monetary numismatic items issued during and immediately after the First World War (1914-1918). These items include art medals, commemorative medals, and tokens, but do not include military decorations.

Open Access Journal: Studia Antiqua et Archaeologica

[First posted in AWOL 8 March 2011. Updated 15 August 2016]

Studia Antiqua et Archaeologica
ISSN (print): 1224-2284
ISSN (online): 2392-6031
The journal Studia Antiqua et Archaeologica was established in 1983, at that moment as a volume dedicated to the memory of the reputed scholar from Iași, Nicolae Gostar. Though at the onset the journal was envisioned as a periodical, because of the financial and political difficulties of the era, its publishing only recommenced in 1995, having appeared regularly since then. 
Studia Antiqua et Archaeologica is edited by the Chair of Ancient History and Archaeology from the Faculty of History within the “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iași, and publishes studies on the prehistory, ancient history and archaeology of, primarily, the South-eastern European area, but also of Europe and of the extra-European regions. After the first issue (1983), the journal underwent, as stated above, a steady evolution, to become one of the few Romanian publications with an up-to-date release schedule. The themes are varied, encompassing eras from prehistory to the Middle Ages and domains such as archaeology, prehistory, numismatics, epigraphy, anthropology, paleobotany, and paleofaunistics. 

Interdisciplinary studies enjoyed appreciable consideration during the last years, on account of the facilities available in the laboratories of the Chair of Ancient History and Archaeology.

Starting with 1990 the journal established international collaborations, out of which special mention should be made of those with scholars from Bari (Rodolfo Striccoli, Marcello Marin, Luigi Piacente, Domenico Lassandro). These collaborations were later intensified by the contributions of the researchers from the University of Foggia (Renzo Infante, Gilda Sansone, Maria Veronese, etc.) and from other foreign universities and institutes (Konstanz, Trier, Innsbruck, Paris, Besançon, Udine, Haifa, etc.).

In conclusion, the journal focuses on ancient history and archaeology and benefitted from the contributions of prestigious authors from Romania or abroad. Worthy of attention is that internationally-recognised scholars have accepted to be members of the editorial committee (Svend Hansen, Christoph Schaefer, Wolfgang Schuller, Martin Hose, etc.).

Open Access Journal: Philologus. Zeitschrift für antike Literatur und ihre Rezeption

[First posted in AWOL 23 May 2012, updated 16 August 2016]

Philologus. Zeitschrift für antike Literatur und ihre Rezeption

I.Sicily ~ Building a digital corpus of Sicilian inscriptions

[First posted in AWOL 27 September 2014, updated 16 August 2016]

I.Sicily ~ Building a digital corpus of Sicilian inscriptions
I.Sicily is a project to create and make freely available online the complete corpus of inscriptions from ancient Sicily. The project includes texts in all languages (Greek, Latin, Phoenician/Punic, Oscan, Hebrew, and Sikel), from the first inscribed texts of the Archaic period (7th-6th centuries BC) through to those of late Antiquity (5th century AD and later). In the first instance the project is restricted to texts engraved on stone, but it is intended to expand that coverage in the future. The project uses TEI-XML mark-up, according to the EpiDoc schema.

I.Sicily è un progetto che mira a creare e rendere disponibile online gratuitamente il corpus completo delle iscrizioni dalla Sicilia antica. Il progetto include testi in tutte le lingue (greco, latino, fenicio/punico, osco, ebraico e siculo), a partire dalle prime iscrizioni del periodo arcaico (VII-VI sec. a.C.) fino quelli della tarda antichità (V secolo e oltre). In un primo momento il progetto si limita ai testi incisi su pietra, ma l’intenzione è espandere la copertura in futuro. Il progetto usa il markup TEI-XML, in conformità con lo schema EpiDoc.

Rediscovering Scholarly Newsletters: A Challenge

Back in 2009, Andrew Reinhard, then at Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, Inc.  serialized the republication online of  The Pompeiiana Newsletter:
The Pompeiiana Newsletter was created and edited by Bernard Barcio and ran from 1974 through 2003. Pompeiiana offered a place for Latin students to publish comics, stories, games, and articles, and was a beloved resource for Latin teachers. In 2008, Barcio granted Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers the rights for all of Pompeiiana. This blog will make all 229 issues freely available to Latin teachers, students, and others interested in Classics, one issue per day.
In August 2013, the Medieval Sai Project: The Greek Norwegian Archaeological Mission to Sudan began the serialized republication of the 22 issues of Nubian Letters published between 1983 and 1994:

Nubian Letters in an independent biannual bulletin for Nubian history and archaeology, published under the auspices of the International Society for Nubian Studies and the Department of Early Christian Art at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands.

Edited by Elizabeth de Ranitz and Karel Inemmée.
I'm really pleased to see these newsletters in general circulation. They represent a form of semi-formal scholarly communication which was common in the second half of the 20th century (and earlier), but which was never properly collected by libraries. Even those which have made the leap to digital media (and you can find many be searching the keyword "newsletter" in AWOL), remain mostly poorly curated or uncollected in libraries. They are nevertheless an extraordinarily important resource for the history of the disciplines they cover and the institutions and projects they represent.

In the Summer of 2014 Oriental Institute Research Archivist, Bibliographer Foy Scalf, began to scan the hard copies of the Oriental Institute Staff Newsletter (63 issues edited by me which appeared between February 1998 and March 2005) and upon discovering that they were incomplete, urged me to try to recover the lost files from a ten year old laptop. As a consequence we now have a complete set available. So a small piece of Oriental Institute microhistory is now recovered and preserved. They are available at Oriental Institute Staff Newsletter, and further information is at the OI History Blog.

Beginning in February 1998, with the encouragement and support of Gene Gragg who was then Director of the Oriental Institute, I compiled, edited and distributed by email an internal newsletter for the staff of the Oriental Institute. It chronicled the activities of the departments of the OI, and of individual scholars and senior students at the OI. It was distributed widely in the University of Chicago community by means of a listhost mailing list, but its archive was not publicly available.  

Many scholars keep files of these things, which they get by virtue of memberships in societies or organization, or association with projects, and in other ways. Likewise, many projects, association, and societies hold files of them in their archives, or in their archives of their successor or sponsoring institutions. If you have a files of one of these inaccessible newsletters, or know of one, I challenge you to follow in the footsteps of The Pompeiiana Newsletter,Nubian Letters, and
The Oriental Institute Staff Newsletterand make it availableto your colleagues and the world at large.It is simpleto set up a blog at Blogger, Wordpress or Tumblr (or one of many other comparable tools), to scan an issue a day, and post them online. Please make sure that you get, or make a good faith effort to get, permission from the organization or person who published the newsletter in the first place. 

Since then a couple of additional newsletters have emerged:

This past year I scanned and posted Pirradaziš: Bulletin of Achaemenian Studies I produced in the 1990s.
Pirradaziš (Pirradazish) [OCLC Number: 863381899] is a newsletter produced by Charles E. Jones at the Oriental Institute Chicago. Eight issues appeared between 1990 and 1994.

Pirradaziš seeks to gather information, primarily bibliographical, which relates to the study of the Achaemenid Persian empire, as well as relevant material on the periods immediately preceding and following it. Each issue will cover the material seen by the editor during the six months (more or less) prior to the date of issue.

Also in 2015, colleagues at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World scanned and made available copies of the orphaned
Circle of  Inner Asian Art and Archaeology Newsletter as a component of the relaunched Ancient World Digital Library.

Please let me know if you can participate, and what and where you efforts appear so I can include it in AWOL's List of Open Access Journals in Ancient Studies.

And I'll happily offer advice and assistance in how to go about doing it If you'd rather have me do it, and can supply the hard copy, I'll gladly make that happen as well.

Another JSTOR Journal: The Classical World

The following somehow escaped my notice in JSTOR. Other recent JSTOR  additions include Eight More Antiquity Related Journals in JSTOR, and Six More Brill Journals in JSTOR.

The Classical World
ISSN 0009-8418
The Classical World 
Classical World (ISSN 0009-8418) is the quarterly journal of the Classical Association of the Atlantic States, published on a seasonal schedule with Fall (September-November), Winter (December-February), Spring (March-May), and Summer (June-August) issues. Begun in 1907 as The Classical Weekly, this peer-reviewed journal publishes contributions on all aspects of Greek and Roman literature, history, and society; on the classical tradition; on the history of classical scholarship; and on the teaching of Latin, Greek, and classical civilization. The ideal reader of Classical World is a scholarly teacher or a teaching scholar, and the ideal contributor has something to say to this reader. In addition to publishing original articles, the journal also features authoritative bibliographies of recent research on ancient authors and topics, regular surveys of textbooks and audio-visual materials, and extensive and timely reviews of scholarly books on the classics.

Micropasts: Photo-masking an Egyptian sarcophagus

Micropasts:Photo-masking an Egyptian sarcophagus
This application enables the creation of a high quality 3D model of an archaeological artifact via process known as photo-masking. There has been a revolution in 3D modeling in recent years and it is now relatively easy to construct such models from ordinary digital photographs. Isolating the object depicted in these photographs, and masking out the background, is an important first step to achieving high quality results.

This particular photo-masking application is an experiment as we are attempting to model an Egyptian sarcophagus on display at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science (DMNS). The sarcophagus on permanent loan to DMNS from the Rosemont Museum in Pueblo, CO.

What we want you to do

We would like people to draw a polygon around the object that they see in each photograph in order to identify its outline and exclude the image background. This allows the 3D modeling process to concentrate on the object itself and ignore irrelevant background information.

If you are interested in what our 3D completed models look like, please have a look at our Sketchfab profile.

Qui som

El GIDC (Grup d’Innovació Docent Consolidat) Electra té la seu al Departament de Filologia Grega de la Universitat de Barcelona. Es constituí a començaments de l’any 2000 per iniciativa d’un grup de professors d’aquell Departament coordinats per la Dra. Eulàlia Vintró.
Al novembre del 2000 va obtenir el reconeixement com a grup per part de la UB i, l’any 2003, va rebre la categoria de grup consolidat. Cada tres anys ha anat renovant aquesta categoria fins a l’actualitat. El 2004 la Generalitat de Catalunya li atorgà la Distinció Jaume Vicens Vives en reconeixement a la innovació docent del grup.
Des de la seva creació i fins avui, el treball ininterromput del grup ha pogut comptar amb alguns ajuts econòmics procedents de les convocatòries anuals de la Universitat de Barcelona i de la Generalitat de Catalunya destinades a la innovació docent.


Oferir als estudiants dels dos primers cursos del Grau de Filologia Clàssica materials, instruments i recursos d’aprenentatge que els permetin assolir els continguts i competències fixats en els itineraris curriculars de les assignatures de grec.
Utilitzar les TIC com a eina complementària a les sessions docents presencials.
Facilitar que l’alumnat de nou ingrés sense coneixements previs de grec clàssic s’incorpori al grau mitjançant recursos específics i compensatoris.
Adaptar material docent a les noves necessitats d’aprenentatge dels estudiants.
Crear cursos de grec clàssic on line i altres materials que permetin un treball individual, d’autoaprenentatge i d’autoavaluació.
