Value of Colour. Material and Economic Aspects in the Ancient World

Value of Colour. Material and Economic Aspects in the Ancient World
David Warburton, Shiyanthi Thavapalan (eds.)
Reihe: Berlin Studies of the Ancient World. Vol. 70
Jahr: 2020
DOI: 10.17171/3-70
Shortlink: www.edition-topoi.org/books/details/1595
In The Value of Colour,  an interdisciplinary group of scholars come together to examine economically relevant questions concerning a narrow slice of social and cognitive history: namely, colours. Traditionally, the study of colours has been approached from a cultural or linguistic perspective. The essays collected in this volume highlight the fact that in earliest human history, colours appear in contexts of prestige (value) and com-merce. Acquisition, production, labour, circulation and consumption are among the issues discussed by individ-ual authors to show how colourful materials acquired meaning in the ancient Near Eastern and Mediterranean worlds. Spanning the Palaeolithic to the early Imperial Rome, the contributions also demonstrate the many questions asked and approaches used by historians in the growing fi eld of Colour Studies

Open Access Journal: Cuneiform Digital Library Preprints (CDLP)

[First posted in AWOL 25 November 2017, updated 31 October 2019]

Cuneiform Digital Library Preprints (CDLP)
CDLI is pleased to present here the results of research in progress submitted, for inclusion in a preprint series hosted by the project, by experts in fields associated with Assyriology and Ancient Near Eastern Archaeology. We anticipate that these papers in their final form will eventually be available in journals (in some cases our own) or in edited volumes; or will, by authors' preference, remain unpublished in the formal sense, so that this may be a final venue for work that might otherwise remain unnoticed in the field. Authors who are interested in submitting contributions to the CDLP should be generally aware of the editorial policies of the journals CDLJ& CDLB; while submissions in English are preferred, CDLP does, however, accept preprints in the other major languages of academic communication. Significant and nearly complete, or dormant research papers are particularly welcome, regardless of their length and scope. Authors should make their submissions in both originating text-processor/layout file, and in the PDF format in which it will be made available here. International A4 or US letter format are both allowed, portrait or landscape. In most cases, if the submission is acceptable for distribution, we will merely add a lead page of the form visible in the files listed below. We invite interested authors to make use of this series to communicate their research to a broader community in advance or in stead of undertaking the rigors of a peer-reviewed standard publication, and we hope the feedback that results from a paper’s dissemination through CDLP contributes to its ultimate impact.
A paper can be updated with a simple new submission by the author(s); to retain a sense of the history of research, we will list new versions one after the other with new “Date posted;” we limit such updates to one (1) per calendar year following the initial posting. We will not retire CDLP entries that move on to formal publications; rather, we request that authors send us notice and citation of the publication, that will be entered to our list for easy reference.
The CDLP is under the editorial supervision of Bertrand Lafont (CNRS, Nanterre), to whom queries and submissions should be directed.

Online Open House | Re-inventing Old Craftsmanship, with Rachele Pierini
We are excited to welcome Rachele Pierini, University of Bologna for an Online Open House. The topic of the discussion is “Re-inventing Old Craftsmanship: Mycenaean Furniture and Today’s Design.” The event will be live-streamed on Thursday, November 7 at 11:00 a.m. EST, and will be recorded.

You might like to read “Reinventing Old Craftsmanship – Mycenaean Furniture and Today’s Design” for the event.

You can watch the event on the Center for Hellenic Studies YouTube channel, and the video recording will be posted here afterwards.

achele Pierini was trained in Classical Philology at the University of Bologna and in Historical and Comparative Linguistics in Madrid. She is a philologist and a linguist who specializes in Bronze Age Aegean scripts, with a focus on Linear B. After having held several Post-Doctoral Fellowships (University of Bologna) and having spent a number of research periods abroad as Visiting Scholar in internationally renowned universities (Complutense University of Madrid; University of Cambridge), she is currently a Teaching Tutor in the Department of Classical Philology at the University of Bologna and has been recently awarded the prize of Cultural Ambassador by her native country. Her research mainly concerns the Greek language, both in its diachronic development (especially its initial stages, from the Proto-Indo-European origins to the earliest Linear B attestations) and in its relationship with substratum and nearby languages.

Krateros, the digital repository for the collections of epigraphic squeezes at the Institute for Advanced Study

The collection's logo
Welcome to Krateros, the digital repository for the collections of epigraphic squeezes at the Institute for Advanced Study.

The squeezes, which are three-dimensional, mirror image impressions of inscriptions, were created and donated to the Institute by the Epigraphical Museum in Athens and some of the greatest epigraphers of the twentieth century, including Louis Robert, Charles Edson, Sterling Dow, and David Moore Robinson. Stephen Tracy, Professor Emeritus of the Ohio State University and former Director of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, has written an introductory primer on the squeeze collection, and Christian Habicht, the late Professor of Ancient History at the Institute, has provided an overview of the Origin and Development of the squeeze collection. The digitization project is funded with generous gifts by the Charles and Lisa Simonyi Fund for Arts and Sciences and the Fowler Merle-Smith Family Trust.

The digitization of these squeezes is a work in progress, and thus new items will regularly be uploaded. The team’s current focus is on squeezes pertaining to Inscriptiones Graecae Volume II, second edition, i.e., IG II(2). These squeezes will be uploaded in more or less ascending order by their IG II(2) number. Please note: although conventional practice is to indicate the edition of a published work with a superscript Arabic numeral (so, e.g., the third edition of Inscriptiones Graecae volume I would be IG I3), on this website and in the Krateros database we instead place the Arabic numeral in parentheses. Thus, the third edition of Inscriptiones Graecae volume I is rendered IG I(3). We have elected to take this approach for the sake of consistency, as the metadata fields in our database do not permit the use of superscript formatting.

Pella: Coinage of the Kings of Macedonia

[First posted in AWOL 19 November 2015, updates 31 October 2019]

Pella: Coinage of the Kings of Macedonia
As a component of the National Endowment of the Humanities funded Hellenistic Royal Coinages project, PELLA is an innovative research tool aiming, among other things, to provide a comprehensive typology and catalogue of the coinages struck by the Macedonian kings of the Argead dynasty (c. 700–310 BC), arguably the most influential coinages of the ancient Greek world. Fueled first by indigenous precious metal mines in their native Macedonia, and later by the spoils of their conquests, including the rich treasures of the Persian Empire, the Argeads’ numismatic output was monumental. For centuries after their deaths, coins in the name of Philip II (ruled 359–336 BC) and Alexander the Great (ruled 336–323 BC) continued to be produced by successor kings, civic mints, and imitators from Central Asia to Central Europe. The coinage of the Argeads themselves and that produced in their names has been extensively studied, but to date no comprehensive, easily accessible catalogue of their coinages exists. PELLA is designed to fill that gap, cataloguing 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.
The current version of PELLA provides links to examples of the coinage (in the name) of Alexander the Great and Philip III Arrhidaeus present in a dozen collections located in the United States and Europe (see Contributors). The PELLA project currently focuses on the coinage (in the name of) Alexander III and Philip III, using reference numbers from Martin Price's The Coinage in the Name of Alexander the Great and Philip Arrhidaeus , London 1991, as the means of organizing the coinages from various institutions. The next stage will focus on the coinage (in the name of) Philip II, using Le Rider, Le monnayage d'argent et d'or de Philippe II frappé en Macédoine de 359 a 294, 1977, as the means of organizing the coinages. Pella will then focus on the coinages of Alexander I to Perdiccas III using SNG ANS as the means of organizing the coinages from various institutions.
PELLA is made possible by stable numismatic identifiers and linked open data methodologies established by the Nomisma.org project. Coin type data are made available with an Open Database License. All images and data about physical specimens are copyright of their respective institutions. Please see the Contributors page for further details about individual licenses. The current version of PELLA uses the numbering system and typology originally created and published in Price (1991) with the addition of modifications that greatly enhance the volume’s usefulness as an online resource.

Babis Polypragmôn. Mélanges en mémoire de Charalampos Orfanos

Sous la direction de Anne De Cremoux, Hélène Frangoulis et Noémie Villacèque
 Ce volume est un hommage à Charalampos Orfanos, spécialiste de la comédie ancienne décédé en 2016. Il est composé de deux parties. La première, un dossier thématique, reprend les lignes de recherche principales de Ch. Orfanos. Elle s’articule en trois sections, sur la comédie grecque et son interprétation − en particulier politique −, sur la réception du théâtre antique à travers ses réadaptations et ses mises en scène contemporaines, enfin sur les idées politiques grecques dans l’Antiquité et sur leur réception à l’époque moderne et au début de l’époque contemporaine. Cette première partie propose trois contributions de Ch. Orfanos lui-même : la traduction française inédite de deux articles parus dans d’autres langues et un article inédit extrait de ses travaux d’habilitation. La deuxième partie du volume est un ensemble de varia sur d’autres sujets de recherche (le théâtre grec et romain, la relation entre homme et dieu, la réception du monde antique…) au sujet desquels les auteurs ont eu l’occasion d’échanger avec Ch. Orfanos.
Le volume permet la poursuite d’un dialogue avec les travaux de Ch. Orfanos, et un prolongement de ses recherches dans leurs trois directions originales : les lectures politiques de la comédie grecque ancienne ; la réception du théâtre antique ; et l’histoire des idées politiques grecques. Les contributions rassemblées dans la deuxième partie offrent des points de vue renouvelés sur les textes théâtraux, religieux, médicaux et philosophiques anciens, ainsi que sur leur réception.

Estudos sobre esparta

Estudos sobre esparta
Cerqueira, Fábio Vergara
Silva, Maria Aparecida de Oliveira
ESPARTA insere-se nos Estudos Clássicos de modo um tanto monocórdico. Os textos produzidos, em geral, destacam o caráter militar de sua sociedade e o consequente rigor das suas instituições, disseminando o mito de que as instituições espartanas permaneceram inalteradas por séculos. O caráter militar atribuído à cidade de Esparta também contribuiu para que os estudiosos a colocassem em segundo plano, especialmente nas décadas de 40 a 60, com poucos estudos entre os anos de 70 a 90, excetuando os que estavam voltados para as questões femininas, pois era usada como modelo para aqueles que a viam como exemplo de uma sociedade antiga que concedia mais liberdade à mulher. Ainda assim, no século XXi, os estudos sobre Esparta não obtiveram o crescimento que se esperava, tendo em vista a preferência por Atenas e Roma nas décadas anteriores. Em parte, tal crescimento não ocorreu por novas cidades terem despertado interesse maior dos estudiosos, como Tebas, Corinto, Alexandria, e até mesmo cidades do mundo colonial grego ou das regiões provincianas do Império Romano. Porém, mesmo que com peso menor do que nos estudos de outras cidades, os estudos espartanos também vivenciaram áreas de renovação. Um bom exemplo seria a coletânea “La cultura a Sparta in età clássica”, organizada por Francesca Berlinzani e publicada em 2013 em Trento, com as contribuições de um seminário realizado em 2010 em Milão.

Smith Papyrus thumbnail The Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus

The Edwin Smith Papyrus, the world's oldest surviving surgical text, was written in Egyptian hieratic script around the 17th century BCE, but probably based on material from a thousand years earlier. The papyrus is a textbook on trauma surgery, and describes anatomical observations and the examination, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of numerous injuries in exquisite detail.
American archaeologist Edwin Smith discovered the papyrus in Egypt in the 1860s, and his daughter donated the papyrus to the New-York Historical Society after his death.  It eventually made its way to the Library of the New York Academy of Medicine, and it was recently translated for the first time in over 50 years into English by James P. Allen of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

al-Qazwini's Wonders of Creation

The Kitab Aja’ib al-makhluqat wa Gharaib al-Mawjudat, usually known as “The Cosmography” or “The Wonders of Creation,” was compiled in the middle 1200s in what is now Iran or Iraq and is considered one of the most important natural history texts of the medieval Islamic world.  The author Abu Yahya Zakariya ibn Muhammad ibn Mahmud-al-Qazwini (ca. 1203-1283 C.E.), known simply as al-Qazwini,  was one of the most noted natural historians, geographers and encyclopedists of the period.

    Introducing Euripides Trojan Women: A “heroized” edition of the Trojan Women

    Introducing Euripides Trojan Women: A “heroized” edition of the Trojan Women
    We are pleased to share in the Text Library a revised translation of the Trojan Women of Euripides that tracks Core Vocab words in the same way as the Sourcebook of Primary Texts in Translation used in HeroesX. [1]
    This was the result of a community-driven collaborative “heroization” project. The group revised a translation to indicate each and every occurrence of a Heroes core vocabulary term and to make the translation of these terms as consistent as possible with the glosses given in the Heroes Core Vocabulary Glossary. The base text in this project was the translation of  E.P. Coleridge.
    As with previous heroization projects, the group prepared in advance by using Perseus under PhiloLogic to create an index that indicated every line where one of the Core Vocab terms occurred. Then the Heroization team, Hélène Emeriaud, Kelly Lambert, Janet M. Ozsolak, Sarah Scott, and Keith Stone, came together for two days in person at the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington DC and via Zoom to work collaboratively through the text. Guided by the Core Vocab index and checking the Greek text at all times, the team worked through the English translation, adding tags and adjusting the translation. This work was highly collaborative. When consensus could not be reached on how to deal with a particular line, the team consulted with Gregory Nagy, Francis Jones Professor of Classical Greek Literature at Harvard University and Director of the Center for Hellenic Studies. The team held one final session to tidy up the text and to ensure consistency. Meanwhile Jack Vaughan prepared an accompanying introduction to the play.
