OCIANA: Online Corpus of the Inscriptions of Ancient North Arabia
ociana logo bluegold


  
The Arabian Peninsula lies at the heart of the Middle East. Today, it is of enormous strategic and commercial importance and this was also the case in antiquity. Yet, most of what we know about its ancient history, languages and cultures comes from contemporaries looking at it from outside, such as the Assyrians, Greeks, and Romans, or from much later reports on what was considered the "Age of Ignorance". Excavations and surveys have been undertaken in the rest of the Middle East for more than a century and a half, but the archaeological exploration of Arabia is still in a pioneering stage. For a brief history of Ancient Arabia and a timeline click here.
The western two-thirds of the Arabian Peninsula were home to numerous literate societies. Indeed, one of the two branches of the alphabet — the South Semitic script family — was used exclusively in ancient Arabia, and still exists in the vocalized alphabets used in Ethiopia. Throughout the Peninsula, literacy was extremely widespread, not only among the settled peoples but — exceptionally — also among the nomads, who covered the rocks of the deserts from southern Syria to Yemen with scores of thousands of graffiti, many of which give us a vivid picture of their daily life and emotions.

Scholars and travellers have been recording Ancient North Arabian inscriptions in what is now Syria, Jordan and Arabia since the 1858, and by now some 70,000 are known, with more being discovered every year. However, their finds have been published in hundreds of books and articles in numerous languages and many are extremely difficult to track down, even for the specialist. There are also very few research tools such as up-to-date lists of names, grammars, dictionaries, etc.

The Online Corpus of the Inscriptions of Ancient North Arabia [OCIANA] aims to transform our knowledge of the history, languages and cultures of ancient Arabia. It is doing this by creating a digital corpus of all known pre-Islamic inscriptions in North and Central Arabia. It provides a reading of each text both in roman transliteration and in fonts reproducing the ancient letters, together with a translation in English, references to earlier readings, commentary where necessary, bibliography, and all known information about the inscription (provenance, carving technique, relationship to other texts or to rock drawings, structures, etc.). Photographs (when available) and facsimiles of each text will also be shown on each record and will eventually be downloadable free at publishable resolutions. The Corpus will be easily updatable as new discoveries are made and will be fully searchable for names, words, grammatical features and subjects.
OCIANA Preliminary Editions
The following pdf files contain preliminary editions of the corpora that are contained within OCIANA, and are available here as free downloads for use by researchers.

 Kölner Papyri
Seit den 50er Jahren besteht am Institut für Altertumskunde der Universität zu Köln die Papyrussammlung. Gründer der Sammlung waren der damalige Direktor des Instituts, Joseph Kroll, und Reinhold Merkelbach.

1972 begann die Nordrhein-Westfälische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Sammlung großzügig zu fördern. Sie stellte Finanzmittel zum Erwerb von Papyri zur Verfügung und errichtete zusammen mit der Universität zu Köln eine Arbeitsstelle. Gegenwärtiger Leiter dieser Arbeitsstelle ist Prof. Dr. Jürgen Hammerstaedt.

Hier restaurieren, entziffern, übersetzen und kommentieren Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler die Papyri der Sammlung und arbeiten an der Erschließung von verstreut publizierten Texten. Die Ergebnisse werden in der Reihe "Papyrologica Coloniensia" veröffentlicht.

Die Kölner Papyrussammlung gehört mit den großen Sammlungen in Berlin und Heidelberg zu den bedeutendsten Einrichtungen dieser Art in Deutschland.

Fast einzigartig in der Welt ist die Zugehörigkeit der Sammlung und der Arbeitsstelle zu einem Institut, in dem nicht nur die Klassische Philologie und die Alte Geschichte, sondern neben der Papyrologie auch die Numismatik und Epigraphik betrieben werden. Die Sammlung umfaßt literarische Texte und Urkunden.

Die alte Seite der Kölner Papyrussammlung steht weiterhin hier zur Verfügung

Mémoires présentés par divers savants étrangers à l’Académie

thumbnail
Institué sur un rapport de A. Dureau de la Malle par l’Académie en 1838, le recueil des Mémoires présentés par divers savants étrangers à l’Académie débuta dès 1844. Il s’agissait en fait de ménager, à côté des lectures faites par les Académiciens devant leurs confrères, une place pour les travaux d’autres savants méritant de recevoir le label de l’Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres. La collection comportait au départ deux séries, l’une ouverte à divers sujets d’érudition, la seconde aux Antiquités de la France ; cette présentation perdura jusqu’en 1893, date à laquelle décision fut prise de ne plus faire de distinction. En 1975, il fut décidé de fondre cette collection avec celle des Mémoires de l’Institut de France, Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres.

La Justice sur les pierres: Recueil d'inscriptions à caractère juridique descités grecques à l'époque hellénistique
http://pascal.delahaye1.free.fr/aude.cassayre/back.jpg
Ce recueil de trente-huit inscriptions à caractère juridique constitue l’apostille d’un travail sur la justice dans les cités grecques à l’époque hellénistique, publié aux PUR sous le titre La Justice dans les cités grecques. L’exercice de la justice, de la formation des royaumes hellénistiques au legs d’Attale.
 
L’essentiel des conclusions de l’ouvrage s’appuyant sur l’analyse épigraphique, il a paru évident, à l’heure des nouvelles technologies, de mettre en ligne le recueil pour qu’il soit facilement accessible à tous. Un immense merci à Pascal Delahaye pour la rapidité et l’efficacité dont il a fait preuve pour mettre le texte en ligne et la générosité de son accueil sur son site.

Les inscriptions sont présentées par ordre chronologique et ne viennent que de cités. Les textes retenus ne constituent évidemment pas l’ensemble du corpus d’inscriptions susceptibles de présenter des données juridiques, mais ils sont particulièrement révélateurs des thèmes du domaine du droit et de la justice dans les cités grecques.


Si les inscriptions sont données et traduites dans leur intégralité, les commentaires ne portent, en revanche, que sur les points du texte ayant trait à la justice, après restitution du contexte chronologique et historique de la gravure.

New Data Sharing Project Focuses on Zooarchaeology of the Levant
Woodcut of Animals of the Holy Land, by Bernhard von Breydenbach, Peregrinatio in terram sanctam (1486) 
We are happy to announce the kick-off of a large-scale data integration project, provisionally titled The Biometrical Database of Levantine Fauna. This project’s goal is to build up a massive body of openly-available zooarchaeological data from the Levant, with a specific focus on measurement data, in order to facilitate and improve research and instruction worldwide. This project represents a collaboration among many colleagues located across the globe, who recognize the research and teaching potential of access to large databases of related content. Zooarchaeology is particularly amenable to data sharing because practitioners collect large quantities of data in somewhat more “standardized” formats than seen in other archaeological sub-disciplines. The data will be published in Open Context, where it will be available openly for download and reuse, and linked to related content both in Open Context and across the Web. All data contributors will be clearly cited, both for the overall project and for each individual specimen. 

This project is open to anyone collecting primary zooarchaeological (or related) data from sites of any period in the Levant and adjacent areas. Its success relies on broad participation from the zooarchaeology community. If this resource sounds exciting to you for your research, please contribute to it! We are currently reaching out to gauge the level of participation. In late spring 2017, we will send details to interested participants of the kind of data we would like you to submit, as well as instructions on how to prepare datasets for publication with Open Context. This will be an ongoing project, so please get in touch with us if you are interested in participating now or in the future! Please contact Justin Lev-Tov (Project Manager) or Sarah Whitcher Kansa (Open Context Editor) for more information.

Société française d’étude de la céramique antique en Gaule
Parties prenantes de l'archéologie, les études céramologiques et les résultats auxquelles elles parviennent sont une des composantes de la recherche historique : la typologie, la chronologie, les lieux de production, la diffusion, etc. sont autant de sujets qui permettent d'appréhender de mieux en mieux la société et l'économie antiques. C'est pour rompre l'isolement de ces chercheurs et promouvoir ces études méthodiques que fut créé, en 1962, le GECAG, association régie par la loi de 1901, transformée en SFECAG en 1973.

Dictynna: revue de poétique latine
http://dictynna.revues.org/docannexe/file/319/dictynna.png
Si l'on en croit Callimaque, qui raconte cette histoire dans son hymne à Artémis, Dictynna est l'épithète que gagna la nymphe Britomartis, à l'issue d'une aventure amoureuse où elle faillit périr. Elle s'était jetée dans les flots pour échapper à Minos, qui la poursuivait depuis  neuf mois, et fut sauvée par des pêcheurs qui   la recueillirent dans leurs filets. On la surnomma Dictynna (du mot diktuon, « filet ») et  on désigna sous le nom de Dikté le mont d'où elle avait bondi. Le nom de Dictynna est attesté à l'époque mycénienne : ce fut, sans doute, celui d'une déesse crétoise de la chasse avant de désigner une compagne d'Artémis, puis de devenir une épiclèse de la déesse elle-même.

The National Roman Fabric Reference Collection: a Handbook

The National Roman Fabric Reference Collection: a Handbook
Museum of London Archaeology Service Monograph 2, 1998. First published in Great Britain in 1998 by the Museum of London Archaeology Service.
Roberta Tomber and John Dore, with contributions by John Cooper, Ian Freestone, Sylvia Humphrey and Andrew Middleton, and additional information from Brenda Dickinson, Kay Hartley and Valery Rigby.









Welcome to the on-line version of the National Roman Fabric Reference Collection.
The original project was initiated by English Heritage and was conducted as a collaboration between English Heritage (now Historic England), the Museum of London Specialist Services (now Museum of London Archaeology) and the British Museum. The resulting monograph, Tomber and Dore 1998, The National Roman Fabric Reference Collection: A Handbook, MoLAS Monograph 2, was reprinted in 2002 and is now out of print, but the original text in its entirety, is available on this site. There are a number of small changes between this resource and the printed version, particularly in the thin-section descriptions. In the case of any discrepancies between the two versions, the on-line one should take precedence.
This web site comprises the original macroscopic photographs of fresh sherd breaks that were published in Tomber and Dore 1998. Here they are available at a significantly larger size than was possible to achieve in print and viewed at a width of field of 24 mm. The original photographs and their digitisation was the work of Andy Chopping of Museum of London Archaeology (© Museum of London Archaeology). In addition, the on-line resource has been enhanced by the addition of a thin-section photomicrograph for each fabric. These were taken by Roberta Tomber in the Department of Conservation and Scientific Research (now Department of Scientific Research, © The British Museum) using a Leica DMRX petrological microscope, mostly in cross-polarised light (XPL), although plane-polarised light (PPL) was sometimes used for clarity. In most cases their width of field is 1.74 mm...

Special  issue of Thersites:
War of the Senses – The Senses in War Interactions and Tensions between Representations of War in Classical and Modern Culture
This special issue of thersites (edited by Annemarie Ambühl) addresses artistic representations of war in literature and other media, focusing especially on the role of sensory perceptions and emotions as well as on gender issues. In line with the transcultural and diachronic outlook of thersites, issues of reception are approached either by applying modern theories and methods to the interpretation of classical texts or by comparing and contrasting ancient and modern responses to war and violence and their impact on human beings and society in general. The issue features contributions that range from Homer to postmodern novels and movies, as well as reviews of thematically related recent publications. Within this wide horizon two thematic clusters emerge: One group of papers studies the narratological, aesthetic and psychological dimensions of (fictional) descriptions of battles and other forms of violence in Latin literature, especially in Caesar’s war commentaries and the epics of Lucan, Valerius Flaccus and Statius, while another group of papers looks at novels that directly or indirectly reflect on experiences from both World Wars and the recent wars in Iraq through a complex engagement with classical narratives and concepts derived from classical antiquity.

Open Access Journal: Relegere: Studies in Religion and Reception

 [Originally posted 29 August 2010.  Most recently updated 16 April  2017]

Relegere: Studies in Religion and Reception 
ISSN: 1179-7231
Relegere has been established to promote and disseminate academic research on reception history, broadly understood, both within and across religious traditions.
Relegere publishes studies of the transmission, reception, and effect of religion ideas, narratives, and images, within any medium - including but not limited to oral tradition, literature, drama, poetry, film, television, digital media, and the plastic arts - in relation to any group, sub-group, or individual in any religious tradition at any point in history.
The journal has been founded on the conviction that the study of reception and religion must not limit itself to a mere cataloguing of influence or a simple recounting of the trajectories of foundational religious texts across time. Beyond this basic research, reception history needs to be more thoroughly understood on a conceptual and theoretical level; reception history must actively interrogate the taken-for-granted idea that foundational texts are somehow fixed, that their essential natures can be distinguished from their subsequent reception.
In pursuit of this goal, Relegere actively encourages methodological, theoretical, and philosophical contributions relevant to reception history and religion, whether in relation to particular case studies or as stand-alone theoretical reflections.  Through the production of a coherent body of theoretical and practical reflection by and for scholars in very different fields and with very different interests, it is our hope that such an approach will facilitate a fruitful and ongoing discussion among scholars.
