In Libris Libertas: Open Access Monographs in Classics, Ancient History, Art History, and Archaeology
Sarah Bond

It is syllabus time for many once again. If you are like me, you want to save your students from spending too much on textbooks, but still want to have a rich array of current reading for students assigned on your syllabus. A few years ago, I put together a popular list of “Open Access Books for Teaching Greek and Roman Inscriptions.” I wanted to piggyback on that by offering just a few options for open access monographs that teachers can assign for course readings or simply to enjoy on your own––for free. A much more comprehensive list of all open access monograph sites can be found on Chuck Jones’ AWOL: The Ancient World Online blog, where you can also find a spectacular list of open access ancient language textbooks for teaching Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Classical Armenian, and many more ancient languages...

Ancient World Mapping Center: Maps for Texts

[First posted in AWOL 14 June 2017, updated 24 August 2019]

Maps for Texts
In this series, the Center compiles maps for ancient texts which can be usefully illustrated in this way.  Naturally, the likelihood is that in most, perhaps all, instances these texts were not originally accompanied by maps.  The series is openly licensed under Creative Commons BY-NC 4.0.  Please direct all questions or comments to awmc@unc.edu.

Completed:
The Black Sea Region Described by Arrian around 130 C.E.
The scale (1:750,000) and presentation of this map match the Center’s Asia Minor in the Second Century C.E. (2017). Arrian’s names are transliterated as in the Barrington Atlas (Directory, p. vii). The map is accompanied by a listing of these names, with references to the Barrington Atlas and its Directory, and to the editions of Arrian’s Periplus by Alain Silberman (1995) and Aidan Liddle (2003).
To download the map and listing of names via Dropbox, contact awmc.unc.edu.
No automatic alt text available.
Dionysius of Byzantium, Anaplousof the Bosporus
The Center’s single, static map is at a scale of 1:100,000. The place names follow the forms as in the text of Rudolf Güngerich (1927, reprinted 1958). Ancient cultural and geographic data follows data derived from Barrington Atlas Map 53 compiled by C. Foss and its Directory. For a link to download the map please email awmc@unc.edu.
No automatic alt text available.
Hierokles, Synekdemos
The Center’s single, interactive web map (available via the link above) follows the text of Hierokles, Synekdemos in Ernest Honigmann’s edition (Brussels, 1939), and aims to supersede his four maps.  With the Center’s Map Tiles as its base, the map marks all cities and regions which may identified and located with at least some confidence according to the Barrington Atlas and related publications listed below.  Greek names are transliterated as in the Barrington Atlas (see Directory, p. vii).  A full database lists all the place-names in the Synekdemos with references (thus including those that cannot be located and marked on the map).  In addition, the text of Honigmann’s edition of the Synekdemos (and of the geographic work of George of Cyprus) is accessible via the Center’s Dropbox.  On Hierokles and George of Cyprus, see further briefly, The Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium, ss. vv.

Ptolemy, Table of Important Cities
Two maps, each in two versions, are offered.  They are produced by Richard Talbert, Gabriel Moss, Alexandra Locking, Peter Raleigh, and the staff of the Center.  Both maps are based on the edition by Lutz Koch, Florian Mittenhuber, and Alfred Stückelberger in Ptolemaios Handbuch der Geographie, vol. 3 (Basel, 2009).  One map (labelled “ancient”) adopts Ptolemy’s projection as drawn by Alfred Stückelberger et al, ibid. vols. 1-2 (2006), using files kindly provided by them, with all sites marked at Ptolemy’s co-ordinates.  The other map (labelled “modern”, ending at longitude 90 degrees E) is based on Antiquity à-la-Carte and shows all the sites which can be located, positioning and naming them as in the Barrington Atlas.  For both maps, one version (labelled “original”) shows only sites originally included in the Table; the other version (labelled “all”) includes sites only added in some later manuscripts.  A searchable directory provides further information on all names in the Table, including the Barrington Atlas reference for each.
All files available for download via Dropbox.


Strabo, Geography
The Center has created an interactive web map (available here) to accompany the Duane Roller’s translation of Strabo’s Geography. The map is freely accessible online and plots all locatable geographic and cultural features in the text. The map is available at this  link.
Theophanes, Journeys between Hermopolis and Antioch
The Center’s single, static map (available via dropbox) plots Theophanes’ journeys between Hermopolis and Antioch in the early fourth century C.E., as recorded in the Rylands Papyri. The map is based on the edition by Colin Roberts (1952), and the translation by John Matthews, The Journey of Theophanes: Travel, Business, and Daily Life in the Roman East (2006). The name-forms and dates marked are as in the papyri.

The mission of the W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research is to develop and disseminate scholarly knowledge of the literature, history, and culture of the Near East, as well as the study of the development of civilization from prehistory to the early Islamic period.

The W.F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research (AIAR) in Jerusalem is the oldest American research center for ancient Near Eastern studies in the Middle East. Founded in 1900 as the American School of Oriental Research (ASOR), it was renamed in 1970 after its most distinguished director, William Foxwell Albright. Today the Albright is one of three separately incorporated institutes affiliated with ASOR; the other two are in Amman and Nicosia.

AbstractDans l'imaginaire collectif, Néron est à jamais figé dans la posture du tyran dépravé, meurtrier, incendiaire : un mythe s'est forgé, éternel et persistant. C’est précisément cette mythologie que l’auteur se propose de décoder. Car parallèlement à l’effacement des traces visibles de la mémoire du prince, les auteurs antiques, tant païens que chrétiens, se sont employés à reconstruire son histoire, jusqu’à ce que Néron, dépouillant son enveloppe d’individu historique, devînt une figure emblématique, incarnation de la tyrannie et de la monstruosité elles-mêmes. Enquête sur les codes philosophiques, rhétoriques ou littéraires qui ont contraint la réécriture de l’histoire du dernier Julio-claudien, l’ouvrage se propose aussi de suivre les mutations de cette figure au cours de l’Antiquité, au gré des erreurs de lecture, des confusions, des manipulations narratives ou des tentatives d’adaptation de la geste néronienne aux préoccupations du temps. Toute une mythographie se fait jour.

Das altägyptische Totenbuch: Ein digitales Textzeugenarchiv
http://totenbuch.awk.nrw.de/img/TEASER-Totengericht.png
Trotz der frühen, intensiven Erforschung in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts ist die Sammlung der Totenbuchtexte und deren Quellen so zahlreich, die Fragestellungen an das Material so facettenreich und die Aussichten auf Forschungsergebnisse, die über den Bereich des Totenbuchs hinaus von Bedeutung sind, so ertragreich, dass die geleistete Vorarbeit nur als Ausgangsbasis dienen kann. Schließlich beschränkte sich Naville auf die Bearbeitung der Manuskripte des Neuen Reichs (1550-1070 v. Chr.), obwohl sie heute weniger als ein Vierteil der bekannten Quellen ausmachen, wenngleich sie qualitativ am hochwertigsten sind. Außerdem wurde seine schwerpunktmäßig textbezogene synoptische Aufarbeitung dem Variantenreichtum der Totenbücher hinsichtlich Format und Vignetten nicht gerecht.
Deshalb wendeten sich zunächst in den 1920er Jahren, später erneut in den 1950ern und in einer dritten Phase in den 1970er und 80er Jahren Göttinger Ägyptologen intensiv dem Totenbuch zu. Zur letzten Gruppe zählten neben Wolfhart Westendorf auch Ursula Rößler-Köhler und Irmtraut Munro. Erstere widmete sich dabei intensiv dem zentralen Spruch Tb 17; letztere konzentrierte sich auf die Handschriften der 18. Dynastie.
Anfang der 1990er Jahre ermöglichte ein Ruf an die Universität Bonn Ursula Rößler-Köhler die Fortsetzung dieser Arbeiten und den Aufbau einer neuen Forschergruppe, dem sogenannten Totenbuch-Projekt. In ihren Berufungsverhandlungen konnte sie eine zweijährige Anschubfinanzierung erreichen. Anschließend förderte die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) das Projekt ab 1994 zehn Jahre lang weiter. Während dieser Phase war auch die Kölner Ägyptologie unter der Co-Projektleitung von Heinz-Josef Thissen beteiligt. Im Jahr 2004 übernahm schließlich die Nordrhein-Westfälische Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Künste das Projekt für weitere neun Jahre.

Factoids: A site that introduces Factoid Prosopography
Factoid Prosopography is an approach to representing prosopographical research that centres on the idea of the “factoid”.  It is an approach that had its beginnings in the Centre for Computing in the Humanities at King’s College London (now Department of Digital Humanities) in the mid 1990s, but which has continued to be refined and modified there since then through a number of historically independent prosopographies.  Furthermore, factoid (or at least factoid-like) thinking has been taken up in varying degrees by other individuals and projects.
If judged by the number of digital historians who seem interested in it, the idea of factoids in prosopography has proven to be a useful one for thinking about data-oriented, highly structured, prosopography.  However, it does seem that beyond a general sense of what a factoid might be there has been little agreement outside of CCH/DDH about what a prosopography in the factoid style should actually be like.  This site is meant to promote some thinking about this issue from the pragmatic perspective that has developed by one of the people at CCH/DDH who has worked on factoid prosopographies for many years – John Bradley (the author of this site). It does this by
  1. presenting a brief document that describes what the author thinks factoid prosopography is all about. (see here),
  2. providing links to the various projects that CCH/DDH and John Bradley have been involved in that describe themselves as factoid prosopographies (see here), and
  3. providing a first attempt at a formal ontology that is meant to capture some of the important formalisms that have underpinned the CCH/DDH prosopographies (see here).

AbstractThe presented volume aims to carry out a socio-cultural case study focusing on two abandoned Nubian villages in Upper Egypt, which are regarding their formation and abandonment closely connected with the construction of the British Dam south of Aswan and the following floods around 1900. Besides the documentation of architecture and associated find material, the special nature of the research strategy involved a close cooperation with the descendents of the village inhabitants and other Nubians still living in the sourroundings of the affected area.Through the interdisciplinary research strategy and the combination of a variety of methods in the fields of Archaeology, Building research and Social Anthropology, standard interpretations could be reflected upon, questioned and if necessary corrected, wherefore this study makes an important contribution to the discussion of cultural formation processes and their transformation into the archaeological record as well as bringing insights into the debate on context interpretation of material culture.
