Playing Offense: A Deeper Look into the Motivations and Significance of Sulla's March on Rome

In 88 BCE, Roman general Lucius Cornelius Sulla marched on his own city for the first time in the Roman Republic’s history to procure for himself political control that had been awarded to Gaius Marius. This paper examines not only the impact of this decision, but also some of the most important motivations behind it that help to shape the march’s significance. Specifically, narratives of Appian, Plutarch, and Velleius Paterculus, that describe this event, in conjunction with commentary from modern historian Allen M. Ward, are presented to illustrate that Sulla’s march on Rome was politically significant in that it set a precedent of violence against the state as a means to attain military command. However, it was not necessarily novel on its own: in fact, it was shaped by the Marian military reforms, Sulla's personal struggle for power...

Ancient Roman Spaces that Served as Museums

Between the 2nd century BCE and 2nd century CE, ancient Roman spaces, both public and private, served as museums that met religious, political, and social needs. Museums in the sense that they were places that acquired and exhibited art and objects; however, the purposes of these museums were strongly linked to where they were located and that space's uses. In religious contexts such as temples, shrines, and sanctuaries, art served primarily as votive offerings. Public buildings like the Atrium Libertatis displayed collections that commemorated important military victories and furthered political agendas. Other spaces, such as the Templum Pacis, served religious and political purposes simultaneously. Spoils of war dedicated...

Arguing for the Truth: The Conflict of Truth and Rhetoric and its Ramifications in Plato’s and Isocrates’ Educational Ideologies

If truth is absolute, how is it possible that people can argue for or against it? If truth is not absolute, on what is our existence predicated? Plato and Isocrates, two contemporaries in Classical Athens, took very different stands on the age-old problem of truth and the rhetorical manipulation of it. A close examination of Platonic dialogues and Isocrates’ speeches reveals that they had different understandings of the concept and purpose of truth. This fundamental divergence caused Plato and Isocrates to have disparate notions of rhetoric and even “philosophy”. Accordingly, they devised drastically different educational programs suited to their respective visions of truth and rhetoric, attempting to realize their...

The Rape of Persephone in Children’s Media: Feminist Receptions of Classical Mythology

In contemporary academic contexts, the ‘Rape of Persephone’ myth is a source of insight into the powerlessness of women in patriarchal, Greco-Roman society. In popular culture, however, the myth has found a surprising second life amongst children’s media as the story of two unlikely, star-crossed lovers. Instead of simply rephrasing the myth as it is found in ancient sources, some Western authors and artists have changed the myth’s plot and characterization of Hades and Persephone in order to transform this rape myth into a love story. In this paper, I explore the ways in which each adaptation deviates from the source material and reveals contemporary views of gender politics. On the one hand, there are some...

Conflating Piety and Justice in Euripides' Orestes

Scholars have long debated the exact difference between what is “pious” (ὅσιος) and what is “lawfully right” (δίκαιος). Many agree that τὰ ὅσια are actions or deeds that please the gods, while τὰ δίκαια are mortal customs. Although, by definition, these two realms of justice are distinct, they are largely conflated in Euripides’ Orestes. In the end, piety (ὅσιος) trumps justice (δίκαιος) and even the τὸν κοινὸν Ἑλλήνων νόμον.
This paper explores the syntactic differences between these two realms and how Euripides comments on them within the...

Collectanea Philologica
ISSN: 1733-0319
The collection's logo
 Seria Collectanea Philologica ukazała się po raz pierwszy w roku 1995 staraniem prof. Ignacego R. Danki. Status periodyku naukowego otrzymała wraz z powołaniem na redaktora naukowego Collectanea prof. Jadwigi Czerwińskiej decyzją Rady Wydziału Filologicznego UŁ z dnia 26 kwietnia 2002 r. Od tego momentu pismo zaczęło się ukazywać regularnie jako rocznik naukowy. Posiada ono międzynarodowy skład Rady Redakcyjnej, do którego wchodzą, obok redaktor naczelnej, prof. dr hab. Jadwigi Czerwińskiej, reprezentującej Uniwersytet Łódzki, uczeni będący przedstawicielami uczelni polskich i europejskich. W Collectanea Philologica publikowane są artykuły naukowe oraz recenzje wydawnicze, które stawiają sobie za cel propagowanie wiedzy o szeroko pojętej kulturze starożytnej Grecji i Rzymu. Materiał naukowy dzielony jest na trzy podstawowe dziedziny: hellenistyka, latynistyka, recepcja. Tematyka artykułów zawiera się w szeroko zakrojonych granicach literatury, języka, historii i filozofii świata starożytnego oraz recepcji antyku w kulturze nowożytnej. Odrębną część stanowi dział poświęcony recenzjom. Przedstawiane w Collectanea Philologica prace są autorstwa zarówno uznanych w dziedzinie antyku autorytetów polskich i zagranicznych, jak i młodych przedstawicieli nauki, w tym także doktorantów. Z uwagi na to, że wiele spośród zamieszczanych artykułów napisana jest w językach kongresowych, pozostałe zaś zawsze posiadają obcojęzyczne streszczenia. Collectanea Philologica dostępna jest również dla uczonych i szerokiego grona odbiorców zagranicznych. Czasopismo skierowane jest zarówno do osób zajmujących się antykiem z racji prowadzonych przez siebie badań naukowych, jak i do szerokiego kręgu zainteresowanych literaturą i kulturą antyczną.

    The aim of the Ebla Digital Archives [ EbDA ] database is to provide a digital edition of the entire corpus of cuneiform texts belonging to the Ebla Royal Archives. Texts are reproduced in the same sequence as in the individual volumes of the series Archivi Reali di Ebla – Testi published by the “Italian Archaeological Mission to Siria” of the Sapienza University of Rome. Compared with the hard copy publication, the digital edition provides harmonized transliterations, corrections and numerous collations made over the years by the team of epigraphers who cooperate with the Mission.
    The project is presented as a work in progress. The ARET volumes currently included in the database will be gradually followed by other volumes published in the past years. Additional texts or portions of texts that have appeared in other series, in monographs or in journals will be also included in the database. Any suggestion by interested users will be highly appreciated.

      Online Comprehensive Bibliography on Syriac Christianity

       [First posted in AWOL 18 August 2012, updated 15 April 2018]

       Comprehensive Bibliography on Syriac Christianity
      It was during the sixteenth century in Renaissance Europe that, as a result of the efforts of the Catholic and Protestant scholars of the New Testament, Syriac studies became a part of European intellectual life. Since then, the number of scholarly publications on various matters related to the history, culture and religious life of Syriac-speaking Christians has only increased. As these publications are in a variety of languages, and many of them scattered through journals and periodicals belonging to various academic fields, it is often difficult to obtain precise information on what has already been published on one or another aspect of Syriac Christianity. Our project aims to fill the evident gap in the bibliographical resources and provide a convenient and easily accessible tool for the worldwide scholarly community. The ultimate goal of this project is to create and launch an on-line database on Syriac Christianity that will be updated on a regular basis and available free of charge to the international scholarly community.     more about ...

      Words In Progress: Supplementary Lexicon of Ancient Greek

      Words In Progress: Supplementary Lexicon of Ancient Greek
      The WiPWords in Progress website is an online freely consultable database that is continuously enriched. It represents an on-going supplement to the major currently used dictionaries of Ancient and Byzantine Greek and seeks to provide a scientific tool for scholars of Greek and more generally of the Ancient Greek and Latin world.

      Drawing its inspiration from the over ten years of experience of PAWAGPoorly Attested Words in Ancient Greek, of which the materials form the basis for the new website, Words in Progress aims to expand its objectives by detailing corrections and additions of many different kinds, in order to record recent progress in the updating and enlargement of lexica of Ancient and Byzantine Greek. Its primary focus of activity concerns the recording of new words, but attention is also devoted to previously unknown sources, novel acceptations and improvements of all kinds involving the entries in the main existing dictionaries.

      WiP is open to collaboration and contributions from the scientific community: thus WiP welcomes any indications that would enhance the range of materials to be included in the database.

      Registered users [Register] can propose new lemmata. For any other correction and suggestion, please use the Contacts on Aristarchus home page Contacts
      WiPWords in Progressè una banca dati online a libera consultazione che viene costantemente arricchita. Il sito rappresenta un supplemento in continua evoluzione ai principali dizionari di greco antico e bizantino esistenti; il progetto intende offrire uno strumento scientifico agli studiosi di lessicografia greca e più in generale del mondo classico.

      Ispirato all’esperienza decennale del PAWAGPoorly Attested Words in Ancient Greek, i cui materiali rappresentano le risorse di base del nuovo sito, Words in Progress mira a espandere il proprio raggio d’azione, segnalando correzioni e aggiunte di vario genere, per dar conto dei recenti progressi nel lavoro di aggiornamento e ampliamento dei lessici di greco antico e bizantino. L’attività principale del sito è incentrata sulla registrazione di nuove voci, ma un’attenzione particolare è rivolta anche alla segnalazione di fonti finora sconosciute, di nuovi inserimenti e di correzioni di vario genere relative ai lemmi presenti sui principali dizionari.

      WiPè aperto alla collaborazione e ai contributi della comunità scientifica: per questo accoglie ogni indicazione che possa ampliare la gamma delle risorse da includere nella banca dati.

      ANE Placemarks for Google Earth

      [First posted in AWOL 26 July 2011, updated 16 April 2018]

      ANE Placemarks for Google Earth
      From Olof Pedersén
      A preliminary set of placemarks (ANE.kmz) for Google Earth of a selection of the most important archaeological sites in the Ancient Near East can be downloaded here (as an alternative try right-click or ctrl-click).

      Ancient Near East Placemarks on Google Earth with alphabetic listing.
      ANE.kmz works with Google Earth, which has to be downloaded (free at earth.google.com). When opened inside Google Earth, ANE.kmz gives, to the left, an alphabetic list of ancient sites and, to the right, on the satellite photo the same sites marked. For the moment, there are some 2500 sites with modern names; among them some 400 have ancient names. Additions of more sites are planned.
      Ancient name is written without parenthesis. Modern name is within parenthesis. Most sites have been identified on the satelite photos. However, a few sites are only placed in the possible area, e.g. in a village with the right name when the site may be outside (if so marked with question mark ? after the parenthesis around the modern name). Question mark after ancient name means that identification is not yet proven. Question mark efter modern name (but before parenthesis around the name) means spelling of name uncertain. Two question marks ?? at the end indicate that it may not be a site but could possibly be a natural hill.
      The preliminary work has received support from the University of Uppsala, the Urban Mind Project at Mistra, and the Excellence Cluster Topoi at Freie Universität Berlin.
      A short introduction to the project dealing with ANE on Google Earth can be read in my manuscript paper Ancient Near East on Google Earth: Problems, Preliminary results, and Prospect.

      New installation

      With Google Earth already installed, just double click the ANE.kmz icon. You find all archaeological sites listed in your left panel of Google Earth under Places/My Places. They can be rearranged, deleted or extended later on by yourself. Double click the name of a city in your left panel in order to go to the site. (Due to a program bug, people having Adobe Photoshop may experience that this program tries to take over the .kmz file. If so, choose open with Google Earth, or open the .kmz file from inside Google Earth.)
      There are two options after the first session.
      1. You never save when leaving Google Earth. Then you keep your ANE.kmz and double click the icon each time you want to use it.
      2. The alternative is that you save when leaving Google Earth when beeing asked. Now you keep the placemarks in your left panel. If you use this possibility it is important that you delete the ANE.kmz file because otherwise you will get duplicate names.


      Two alternatives:
      1. If you never saved before leaving Google Earth you can just throw the old ANE.kmz away and use a new downloaded ANE.kmz.
      2. If you saved, you have all cities listed inside Google Earth. Go to your left panel and mark My Places (if you want to get rid of all there) or all the site names from the old ANE list (if you have more to keep in My Places). Delete what you have marked. Now double click the new ANE.kmz icon and save when leaving Google Earth, if you want to keep the new placemarks. If you don't delete the old ones, there will be double names on every site in Google Earth. Delete the ANE.kmz file if you saved the placemarkes inside Google Earth.

      Until someone else comes up with a better, more permanent solution, these placemarks may be updated. Any correction or addition with coordinates could be sent to Olof Pedersén. No support is offered.

      Water Placemarks

      A preliminary overview of the waters of the Mesopotamian floodplain can be downloaded here.

      Mesopotamian floodplain with modern waters.
      Represented are Modern waters systems (Euphrates, Tigris, Drain), Islamic canals, Ancient waters, and Geological waters. It is based on my own survey of modern waters, some archaeological reconstructions (often Neo-Babylonian according to Gasche 1998) and geological water reconstructions (Aqrawi et al. 2006). The archaeological reconstructions of Ancient waters shown here are incomplete and provisional and most detailed in the Babylon area.
      Click in the left panel to show the selection of waters you are interested in. Installation and updating work like ANE.kmz above.
      A short introduction to the project dealing with waters especially in the Babylon area can be found in my paper Waters at Babylon.

                              Digital Mappa

                              Welcome to Digital Mappa 1.0

                              Digital Humanities workspaces, editions, scholarship, collaboration & publications for the rest of us
                              April 18, 2018: DM 1.0 is released into the wild! Here’s the official press release.
                              Digital Mappa (DM for short) is a freely available online environment for creating projects out of digital images and texts. The premise of DM is simple and powerful: if you have a collection of digital images and/or texts, you should be able to produce an online resource that links together specific moments on these images and texts together, annotate these moments as much as you want, collaborate with others on this work, have the content you produce be searchable, and make this work available to others as you wish. And you should be able to do this with little technical expertise.

                              Classical Association in Northern Ireland Newsletter
                              Our aim is to promote Ancient History and Classical Studies and to support education in these subjects throughout Northern Ireland

                              The Association in Northern Ireland was relaunched at the culmination of the 2014 Summer School organised by the Classical Association of Ireland. 

                              Based in Belfast, we are a branch of The Classical Association of Ireland. 
                              “Never, with dogs on guard, need you fear a midnight thief at your stalls ” 
                              (Virgil, Georgics III, 404ff) 

                              We are dedicated to supporting Ancient History and the Classics so our emblem is the representation of a stylized hound signifying guardianship.The dog was a popular subject for mosaics on the entrance floors of  Roman homes and a recurring graphic motif in early Irish Latin manuscripts. Narratives featuring hounds were frequently incorporated into the earliest oral and written traditions of Northern Ireland.

                              Supplement to the Akkadian Dictionaries (eSAD)


                              Supplement to the Akkadian Dictionaries (eSAD)
                              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. However, due to the many new 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, both dictionaries, especially in their earlier volumes, are outdated in part.
                              The Supplement to the Akkadian Dictionaries is meant to update both dictionaries. Since July 1st 2013, it is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft as a long-term project, in connection with the Etymological Dictionary of Akkadian conducted by Manfred Krebernik (Jena) and Leonid Kogan (Moscow). All results are published on this website, and in addition printed volumes will appear successively. 
                              The project leader is Michael P. Streck. Collaborators are:  Nadezda Rudik (2013-2017), Elyze Zomer (2017), Janine Wende (since 2017), N. J. C. Kouwenberg (2017).
