Persons and Names of the Middle Kingdom
https://pnm.uni-mainz.de/assets/style/intef.jpg
The online database “Persons and Names of the Middle Kingdom” (PNM) is developed as part of the project “Umformung und Variabilität im Korpus altägyptischer Personennamen 2055–1550 v. Chr.”, funded by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation. The database is under development and should eventually cover Egyptian Middle Kingdom personal names, people, written sources, titles, and dossiers of persons attested in various sources. The preliminary version currently available online is limited to Second Intermediate Period sources (14th–17th Dynasties).

Welcome to Perseus under PhiloLogic, 2018 edition

News and updates

Welcome to Perseus under PhiloLogic. It's been a while since we released an official update, but here it is, thanks to indefatigable wrangling (of C, perl, apache and many other arcana) this summer by Walt Shandruk. The intervening years have seen significant work especially on the side of the Greek texts, and some enhancements to the functionality of PhiloLogic for ... philologists. I'd like to thank all those who have written to us over the years to report typos and other errors; or simply to report a server outage. We are glad you keep coming back for more.

If the Perseus mothership at Tufts represents a well-outfitted library carrel, with texts, commentaries, dictionaries and other resources all within your reach on the same page, then the organization of this site may come as a surprise. Rather than reading-with-apparatus, we aim to offer exploration of the texts through a panoply of corpus queries. Because many texts have been parsed by hand, and the rest of them with the computer, you can search in ways that you don't see in too many other places: For instance, search for present imperatives in Plato, or the particle μέν only in lines spoken by Ismene. Looking for forms of βροτός at the end of the sentence? We are here to serve them up. For experienced and post-beginner readers, we also recommend tools that will by now be familiar, I hope: the Keyword in Context view, and the Collocation tool.

We are grateful for all problem reports and user suggestions; keep them (and your donations:-)) coming. To keep abreast of developments, consider following us on Twitter: @LogeionGkLat. Work that awaits: we really want to incorporate more texts, which are steadily becoming available from the Perseus Digital Library. More importantly, we need to adapt the new generation of PhiloLogic, PhiloLogic4, to the needs of classicists (think: navigation that is not by page number in an edition; lemma searches; ...), so that we no longer depend on fifteen-year-old technology. Stay tuned.

The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) Library is the most important archaeological library in the Middle East, which was established during the British Mandate around 1926. It holds an extensive collection of the archaeological and historical research of the Land of Israel and the Levant.
One of our unique collections is a selection of rare books from the 16th-17th centuries, some of which were written by pilgrims to the Holy Land; others were written by explorers or military expeditions. Their pages are filled with road maps, engravings, drawings and descriptions that illuminate Levantine life at the time.

The library welcomes the public.

          The Eastern Desert of Egypt extends over a vast area of mountains and sandy plains between the Nile and the Red Sea. Its natural riches –gold, gems and high quality stones (such as granite from Mons Claudianus, Tiberianè or Ophiatès, porphyry from Porphyritès, basanites [greywacke] from the Wâdi al-Hammâmât, etc.)– have, despite the difficulties due to harsh climatic conditions, been exploited since the Predynastic period. The Pharaohs, the Ptolemies and the Roman emperors often sent exped...

          Iliria
          thumbnail
          Iliria est une revue scientifique, publication de l’Institut Archéologique d’Albanie, dont le premier numéro est paru en 1971. Elle est publiée à un rythme annuel au cours de sa première décennie, puis devient périodique à partir de 1981.

          Elle publie des études et matériaux archéologiques des auteurs albanais et étrangers, qui travaillent sur le territoire de l’Albanie actuelle dans les domaines de la préhistoire, de l’antiquité et du bas moyen âge, ainsi que des études historiques se rapportant à ces domaines. L’objet principal de ces études a été les problèmes fondamentaux de l’archéologie albanaise, tels que l’ethnogenèse des Illyriens, la naissance et le développement de l’État illyrien et la formation du peuple albanais et de sa civilisation. Les articles sont accompagnés d’un résumé en français ou en anglais et, dans des cas particuliers, sont traduits intégralement.

          La collection complète de la revue Iliria compte jusqu’à présent 46 volumes, qui embrassent plus de 15000 pages de la recherche scientifique archéologique albanaise.

          Les changements démocratiques qui ont eu lieu en Albanie au début des années 90 ont conduit à la liberté académique dans les écrits et à l’ouverture avec le monde étranger.

          new Trismegistos Texts, part 1

          0
          0
          Trismegistos is happy to announce a further step towards a completely innovated online interface. This time we have tackled the core database, Trismegistos Texts. We have developed a new detail page that offers easier access to all related information (e.g. words, people, places, …). But we have also tackled our search page, and it should now be much easier to search for specific texts in Trismegistos. There is only a single field in which users can type publications sigels, inventory numbers or even names of texts (e.g. 'Rosetta Stone’ or ‘Charta Borgiana’). The algorithm in the background should ideally convert everything according to our conventions, or offer possible alternatives for typos etc. Although we hope to have implemented enough flexibility for users to find what they are looking for, we know that there is still much work to do. But we think it is a good step towards a tool that will be able to cope with any reference to a text, and which in the future we hope to offer as an API and use in the context of text mining or annotation in pdf’s.

          Please note that for searches for sets of texts according to criteria you still have to use the old interface or approach the solution through related tables such as Places or Authors. We hope to get something up and running for sets of texts before long as well. 

          For Trismegistos,

          Teiresias Supplements Online
          Page Header
          Teiresias Supplements Online (ISBN) is an open access venue for the publication of high-end research in Classical Studies. Supplementing the journal Teiresias Online Review and Bibliography of Boiotian Studies, the mission of the series is to foster research on Central Greece and its core region Boiotia. At the same time, the supplements have a wider geographical range, branching out into the history and culture of the Greek mainland and the Peloponnese, from the Bronze Age to Late Antiquity. 

          Publications appear as peer-reviewed monographs or edited volumes, with extensive coverage of scholarship in Ancient History, Classical Philology, Archaeology, and Epigraphy. The series also invites submissions in related special disciplines such as, for instance, Historical Topography, Onomastics, Prosopography, or Environmental History. 
           
          The journal Teiresias continues to be distributed free of charge ever since its inception and, since 1991, has also been made available electronically. Teiresias Supplements Online is faithful to this spirit of knowledge advancement. The series makes a bold, pioneering move in the publication of specialized Humanities research. Available in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and maintaining the highest standard of peer-review, the supplement series reduces price barriers and delays in the production process, while allowing authors to maintain copyright over their intellectual output. This includes the upload of contributions to academic platforms such as academia.edu, if authors wish to do so. Click here for further copyright information. Participating in the DOAJ also ensures that publications in Teiresias Supplements Online are indexed and searchable on platforms like Google scholar. As open access supplements, the series embraces a sustainable publishing model that benefits researchers and their multiple audiences. 

          Teiresias Supplements Online is a publication out of McGill University in Montreal. It offers a swift two-step reviewing process. A detailed proposal will be examined in the first instance by the advisory board, and, if successful, the editors will welcome the submission of the whole manuscript for peer-reviewing. All inquiries and submissions should be directed to the series editors.

          SCADS: Seleucid Coins Addenda System

          http://seleucidaddenda.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/horse1.jpg?w=200&h=200 

          In 2002 and 2008 the American Numismatic Society and Classical Numismatic Group published the two parts of Seleucid Coins: A Comprehensive Catalogue, by Arthur Houghton, Catharine Lorber, and Oliver Hoover. The first part, by Houghton and Lorber, presented and interpreted all the  numismatic material for Seleucus I to Antiochus III known up to 2002. The second part, by Houghton, Lorber, and Hoover, did the same for the Seleucid kings from Seleucus IV to  Antiochus XIII. In total, more than 2,491 primary coin types were published in these volumes.
          No sooner had these important books come out in print than new types and varieties began to appear at the rate of almost 100 a year. This rapid growth of material made necessary the development of a system that could keep up with the coins. The Seleucid Coins Addenda System (SCADS) is intended to provide online access to the new material that has appeared since 2008. As there is no indication that the flow of previously unrecorded types and varieties will stop anytime soon, it is expected that the SCADS database will continue to grow over time. Interested parties will be instantly notified of new additions to the database through alerts on Facebook, Twitter, and direct email subscription.

          The coins in the SCADS database are categorized by ruler, making it easy for users to find all new entries for a particular king with a single click. Extensive tagging of entry content allows for full searchability. Thus, for example, a user interested in all new material depicting Apollo  would simply enter “Apollo” as the search criterion and SCADS would provide all the relevant entries. If a user was interested only in Apollo on issues of bronze denomination C, “denomination C” could be added to narrow down the search. The coins in the database have all been given a unique catalogue number (SCADS1, SCADS2, SCADS3, etc.) for ease of reference, but these only reflect the order of entry and are not tied to the numbering system used in the Seleucid Coins volumes.

          This project aim to construct an interactive website that will map the Jewish Diaspora in the late antiquity.

           The terminus a quo for the proposed research is the Diaspora uprisings against Trajan (115–117) and the ensuing shifts in Jewish life, one of which was the harsh blows experienced by some of the major centers of Jewish settlement in the Diaspora, first and foremost, the Jews of Alexandria and its environs, and the Jews of Cyrenaica and Cyprus.
           The chosen terminus ad quem is the Arab conquest of North Africa and southwest Europe over the course of the seventh century, before the emergence of Jewish communities in Europe in the Early Middle Ages

          On the first phase of the project the foundings will be concentrated on the site. later they will be uploaded evidence to a GIS software that allows search by various parameters.

          The project is coordinated by Dr. Eyal Ben-Eliyahu from the Department of History at the University of Haifa, Israel.

          Theatrum
           view-source:http://www.theatrum.de/typo3temp/pics/208b4213fa.jpg
          Die Website www.theatrum.de ist als Internetprojekt aus den Aktivitäten zur Erforschung des römischen Theaters von Mogontiacum-Mainz hervorgegangen. Ziel ist, in kurzer Form Basisinformationen zu allen bekannten Theatern der griechisch-römischen Antike zusammenzustellen. So soll ein schneller Zugang zu den Fragen hergestellt werden, was über das Aussehen eines Theaters bekannt ist und was dort veranstaltet wurde – jeweils streng orientiert an der historischen und archäologischen Überlieferung jedes einzelnen Baues. 

          Die antiken Theater waren öffentliche Räume, die bei den großen Feierlichkeiten ihrer Gemeinden im Blickpunkt der gesamten Gesellschaft standen. Hier fanden im fest gefügten Ablauf sakraler Feste nach Opfern und Prozessionen für die Götter oder den Herrscher Bühnenaufführungen unterschiedlicher Art statt. Wer als Mitglied der Gesellschaft diesen Feiern beiwohnte, nahm auch an den Bühnenaufführungen teil und so erklärt sich die nach heutigen Maßstäben enorme Zuschauerkapazität der Theaterbauten. Die mit dem griechischen Wort Euergetismus bezeichnete Wohltätigkeit führender Gesellschaftsmitglieder ermöglichte erst den Bau solch komplexer Anlagen. Als Gegenleistung für diese als Verpflichtung empfundene Großzügigkeit gewährte die Gemeinde dem Spender Ehrenstandbilder im Theater und verewigte ihn bis auf unsere Tage für die Nachwelt. Hiermit ging die Verehrung von Göttern und Herrschern einher, die in jedem Theater ihren Ausdruck in Form einer statuarischen Ausstattung fand.

          Die großen, weithin bekannten Spiele wurden von professionell ausgebildeten Akteuren besucht, deren Erfolge in den Agonen vor allem des griechischen Ostens auf zahlreichen Inschriften aufgelistet wurden. Vielfach machten Münzprägungen Namen und Preise von Spielen im ganzen Reich bekannt. Halten griechische Inschriften den Ablauf von Feiern penibel fest, so teilen uns die lateinischen Inschriften des Westens genau mit, wie viel Geld Spiele (ludi scaenici) oder Baumaßnahmen kosteten und wer diese bezahlte. Unterschiede und Gemeinsamkeiten des Theaterwesens im griechischen Osten und dem lateinischen Westen werden deutlich, ebenso wie regionale Besonderheiten etwa der gallo-römischen Theater oder der orientalischen Kult-Theater.

          Nach dem Vorbild der Internetseite www.theatrum.de wird ab der Woche 38 im Jahr 2011 bei der Generaldirektion Kulturelles Erbe Rheinland-Pfalz, Landesarchäologie Mainz die website www.amphi-theatrum.de aufgebaut werden. Sie wendet sich an Wissenschaftler und interessierte Laien und wird bis auf Weiteres mit vermehrten Inhalten gefüllt werden.

          Die Seite entspringt dem Wunsch, die diesbezüglichen Informationen zu dem noch nicht entdeckten Amphitheater in Mainz zu sichten, durch die Bereitstellung eines Umfangreichen Vergleichsmaterials die Plausibilität der Forderung seiner ehemaligen Existenz in Mainz nachvollziehbar zu machen und notwendigen Ergänzungen der theatrum-Seite gerade im Bereich der „Veranstaltungen“ adäquaten Raum zu geben.
          Je nach Überlieferungssituation sollen die Kategorien

          -          Bauinschriften
          -          Beschreibung
          -          Ausstattung und Funktionsweise
          -          Funde
          -          Literatur
          -          Veranstaltungen
          -          archäologische Reflexe des Veranstaltungswesens

          dargestellt werden. Dabei ergab sich die Notwendigkeit, auch Orte mit wichtigen archäologischen Zeugnissen zum Gladiatorenwesen in die topographische Ordnung mit aufzunehmen, selbst dann, wenn sie kein Amphitheater besitzen.

          Neben die Säule der topographischen Ordnung wird nun auch eine stärker ausgebaute inhaltliche Säule gestellt mit einem umfangreicheren Glossar als es bisher bei theatrum besteht, einer Textsammlung der kaiserlichen Politik zu diesem Themenbereich, einer allgemeinen Bibliographie und einer link-Sammlung, die nicht allein historische und archäologische Quellen erschließen, sondern auch zu den Seiten des sog. re-enactment führt, jenen immer zahlreicher werdenden praktischen Aktivitäten zum historisch möglichst genauen Nachspielen antiker Gladiatorenkämpfe.

          Textbeiträge auswärtiger Kollegen sind im Sinne einer Qualitätsverbesserung ausdrücklich erwünscht. Auch für die Überlassung von Bildern sind wir dankbar. Herkunft der überlassenen Texte und Bilder werden deutlich gekennzeichnet.

          Places – Monuments – People
          Southeastern Europe – Eastern Mediterranean
          Greece – Asia Minor – Southern Italy

          Travelogues website was created within the broader project of Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation to promote Greek culture, and especially Greek literature, on a national and international level. This website aims to make known the graphic materials found in travel accounts of journeys to Greece and the eastern Mediterranean from the 15th century onwards, and thus contribute both to students' education and scientific research. An important part of the editions that constituted the data base of the website belongs to the Historical Library of the Foundation, currently under construction.

          Travelogues will periodically be updated with material from major libraries in Greece, such as Gennadius Library and Benaki Museum Library. This material, already in process, spans the time from the 15th to the early 20th century. Of approximately 4500 images, 560 have already been incorporated in the website's collections. In the same sense, the bibliography shall be updated with the most recent research contributions. User feedback will be taken into consideration and the pertinent modifications will get reflected.
            And see AWOL's round-up of Open Access Travel Literature.
