My archive of Greek dependency trees is available here.

I have made a series of videos explaining how to make dependency trees in Arethusa/Perseids for someone who already knows Greek. You can find them on my YouTubeChannel.

I have made a series of videos ("Grammar 101-104") explaining basic English grammar needed to read Ancient Greek, using dependency syntax terms. They are intended for someone who knows no Greek. You can find all these videos on my YouTubeChannel.

Open Access Journal: British Museum Studies in Ancient Egypt and Sudan (BMSAES)

[First posted in AWOL 8 October 2009. Updated 4 December 2019]

British Museum Studies in Ancient Egypt and Sudan (BMSAES)
ISSN: 2049-5021 (on-line)
The British Museum Studies in Ancient Egypt and Sudan(BMSAES) is a peer-reviewed, academic journal dedicated to presenting research on all aspects of ancient Egypt and Sudan and the representation of these cultures in modern times.
BMSAES is open-access: all articles in this journal can be viewed and downloaded free-of-charge.
This journal offers scholars the opportunity to include a large number of colour images, and other multimedia content, where appropriate to the article. Accepted papers will be published as soon as possible: there is no defined publication schedule or deadlines, as with print journals. The articles do not need to concern British Museum objects or projects.


This issue comprises an article presenting the outputs of a multi-disciplinary collaboration of scholars from the Departments of Egypt and Sudan, Middle East and Conservation at the British Museum. It combines research into, and conservation of, a group of glazed tiles found at the Assyrian city of Nimrud, which depict military scenes in Egypt. The renewed study of these long-known objects with, as presented here, the first detailed drawings and photographs of all the surviving fragments, in addition to newly identified and discovered fragments, enables the authors to thoroughly reassess the discovery, production and narrative content of the tiles in relation to other known later-Sargonid glazed material and artwork. It demonstrates how the close study of objects and archives, even seemingly well-published material, can yield significant results in understanding key issues, in this case the development of architecture and Egyptian influence on Assyrian art.

Magie als Waffe gegen Schlangen in der ägyptischen Bronzezeit

Magie als Waffe gegen Schlangen in der ägyptischen Bronzezeit
Stegbauer, Katharina 
 Magie als Waffe gegen Schlangen in der ägyptischen Bronzezeit
 Ägyptologische Studien Leipzig 
Unter den Zaubersprüchen des Mittleren und Neuen Reichs machen Texte gegen Schlangen und ihr Gift den größten Teil aus. Diese Sammlung von Sprüchen bildet die Grundlage für die Untersuchung der Merkmale der Textsorte der Zaubersprüche. Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt der Arbeit ist eine Zusammenstellung des in diesen Sprüchen enthaltenen altägyptischen Wissens über Schlangen und ihr Gift. Zudem wird der Frage nachgegangen, warum die altägyptische Kultur so lange an der Verwendung solcher Sprüche festgehalten hat. Thematisiert wird außerdem der ägyptologische Umgang mit den Zaubersprüchen, der lange Zeit von großen Schwierigkeiten geprägt war. Die Arbeit enthält einen Katalog, der die 52 ausgewerteten Sprüche in Transkription und Übersetzung vorgelegt - jeweils begleitet von einer inhaltlichen Interpretation.

Katharina Stegbauer studierte an den Universitäten Leipzig und Halle-Wittenberg Ägyptologie, Journalistik und Ur- und Frühgeschichte und wurde 2008 an der Universität Leipzig promoviert. Sie leitete von 1998 bis 2004 zusammen mit ihrem Mann den Verlag Helmar Wodtke und Katharina Stegbauer GbR und gründete 2011 die Seschat Fernschule für Ägyptologie. Von 2006 bis 2008 war sie als wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin im Projekt Digital Heka tätig. Seit 2009 ist sie als Lehrkraft für besondere Aufgaben am Ägyptologischen Institut der Universität Leipzig beschäftigt.

Open Accesss Journal: Aitia. Regards sur la culture hellénistique au XXIème siècle

 [First posted in AWOL 30 May 2012, updated 4 December 2019]

Aitia. Regards sur la culture hellénistique au XXIème siècle
ISSN electronic edition: 1775-4275
Aitia. Regards sur la culture hellénistique au XXIe siècle est une revue internationale électronique. Elle s'intéresse à l’ensemble de la culture hellénistique. Cette revue entend favoriser les approches croisées entre les domaines de la recherche, en particulier la littérature et la philosophie. L’émergence à Athènes et à Rome des grandes écoles et traditions philosophiques de la période ne peut être considérée indépendamment de son contexte culturel. Inversement, on voit une philosophie popularisée prendre une place toujours plus grande dans l’ensemble de la vie culturelle et influencer souvent fortement la production littéraire.
La revue Aitia entend avoir une vocation internationale : elle publie des articles en différentes langues (notamment : français, anglais, italien, allemand, espagnol, grec moderne…) ; elle entend favoriser particulièrement les contributions de jeunes chercheurs. La publication des articles est soumise à l’accord d’un comité de lecture scientifique également international.

Nouveaux regards sur le philosophe stoïcien Lucius Annaeus Cornutus

Nuovi sguardi sul filosofo stoico Lucio Anneo Cornuto
A New Look at the Stoic Philosopher Lucius Annaeus Cornutus
Sous la direction de Sophie Aubert-Baillot
Le recueil d’articles présenté ici est consacré au stoïcien Lucius Annaeus Cornutus (né vers 10-20 et mort après 65), figure à la fois éminente de la pensée antique, puisqu’il fut le maître de Perse et de Lucain, et un peu méconnue. Pourtant, ses travaux présentent l’immense intérêt de porter à la fois sur la philosophie, la grammaire et la rhétorique, et d’être rédigés pour partie en grec, en ce qui concerne la philosophie, et pour partie en latin, dans le domaine grammatical. Les six contributions que l’on va lire mettent toutes en exergue l’importance et l’originalité de l’œuvre philosophique et philologique de Cornutus.
The present papers are devoted to the Stoic Lucius Annaeus Cornutus (born about 10–20 A.D. and died after 65 A.D.), both a prominent figure in Antiquity, since he was the master of Persius and Lucan, and a quite obscure one today. However, his work is extremely interesting insofar as it bears on philosophy, grammar and rhetoric. Moreover, it is written both in Greek, as far as philosophy is concerned, and in Latin, for the grammatical part. The six papers collected in this issue highlight the importance and the originality of the philosophical and philological work of Cornutus.
Gli studi qui raccolti sono dedicati allo Stoico Lucio Anneo Cornuto (nato intorno al 10-20 d.C. e morto dopo il 65 d.C.), che era una figura eminente del pensiero antico, poiché era il maestro di Persia e Lucano, ma una figura un po' sconosciuta. Tuttavia, le sue opere presentano l'immenso interesse di vertere sulla filosofia, la grammatica e la retorica, e di essere scritte parzialmente in greco, per quanto riguarda la filosofia, e parzialmente in latino, nel campo della grammatica. Questi sei studi tutti evidenziano l'importanza e l'originalità dell'opera filosofica e filologica di Cornuto.

L’épigraphie fait peur. Historiens, linguistes, archéologues en connaissent l’intérêt : ils ont quelquefois peine à s’y retrouver. Les pierres inscrites jouaient en effet, dans la cité antique, un rôle infiniment plus grand et plus divers que de nos jours, et c’est par milliers qu’on a conservé des inscriptions grecques et latines – dont le nombre s’accroît chaque année grâce à de nouvelles découvertes.
Où trouver les inscriptions sorties du sol italien depuis la parution du Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum ? L’édition la plus autorisée de la pierre de Rosette ou de l’édit de Dioclétien ? Les répertoires prosopographiques qui permettront d’engager une première étude d’histoire sociale ?
Pour faciliter la réponse à de telles questions, un groupe de chercheurs liés à l’ENS a réuni cette bibliographie sélective, dévoilant au profane les principales clefs de la science épigraphique, et le conduisant du monde gréco-romain aux autres peuples du pourtour méditerranéen et de sa périphérie plus lointaine. Cette quatrième édition, entièrement refondue, compte quelque 3 000 notices, dont plus du quart signale des publications parues depuis l’édition précédente.

    Online Open Access Catalogue: Ancient Carved Ambers in the J. Paul Getty Museum

    Ancient Carved Ambers in the J. Paul Getty Museum


    This catalogue presents a group of remarkable amber carvings from the J. Paul Getty Museum’s collection—the second largest body of this material in the United States and one of the most important in the world. The fifty-six Etruscan, Greek, and Italic carved ambers date from around 650 to 300 B.C.
    Offering a full description of each piece, including typology, style, chronology, provenance, condition, and iconography, the catalogue is preceded by a general introduction to ancient amber. Through exquisite visual examples and vivid excerpts from classical texts, this book examines the myths and legends woven around amber—its employment in magic and medicine, its transport and carving, and its incorporation into jewelry, amulets, and other objects of prestige.
    This open-access catalogue is available for free online and in multiple formats for download, including PDF, MOBI/Kindle, and EPUB. A paperback reference edition is also available for purchase.

    Panel 8.6

    Archaeology and Economy in the Ancient World – Proceedings of the 19. International Congress of Classical Archaeology, Cologne/Bonn 2018Seit mehreren Jahrzehnten steht die Survey-Archäologie und die Untersuchung von Stadt-Hinterland-Beziehungen im Fokus der mediterranen Archäologie. In der südlichen Levante wurden diese Ansätze bisher jedoch nur selten verfolgt. So wurden nur wenige Städte dieser Region durch systematische intensive oder extensive Surveys untersucht. Dieser Band ist der städtischen Infrastruktur gewidmet und konzentriert sich auf die Untersuchung der Beziehungen zwischen Städten und ihrem Hinterland. Hierbei fokussiert er sich auf Haupt- und Nebenverwaltungszentren in Judäa / Palästina und Arabien unter römischer und byzantinischer Herrschaft (1. bis 7. Jh. n. Chr.). Während die Erforschung der historischen Geographie der südlichen Levante eine lange Tradition hat, haben sich heutzutage die Forschungsfragen gewandelt und die Erforschung von Mikroregionen und ihres Hinterlandes steht nun in vielen Fällen im Mittelpunkt der Projekte. Solche Studien können nur systematisch durchgeführt werden, wobei multidisziplinäre Ansätze und hochauflösende Analysen verwendet werden, um alle Arten von Zonen städtischer Siedlungen und Verbindungen innerhalb des Standorts und seiner Peripherie und seines Hinterlandes zu untersuchen. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes bieten einen ersten Versuch, die städtischen Siedlungen in der südlichen Levante aus einer vergleichenden Perspektive zu betrachten.

    Open Access Monograph Series: Des princes

    Des princes
    ISSN (Édition imprimée): 1621-1235
    ISSN électronique: 2680-1035
    Sous la direction de Isabelle Cogitore
    La question du prince intéressait traditionnellement les historiens. Avec la mort des idéologies, la chute du Mur de Berlin et le regain d'intérêt pour la rhétorique, elle redevient un problème littéraire. En effet, il s'agit de retrouver, d'analyser, pour ainsi dire de l'intérieur, une représentation de la politique telle qu'on la vivait avant la Révolution. Avec l'école des Annales, les historiens ont redécouvert que les désirs comptent autant que les réalités, les mots et la gestuelle qui les accompagne autant que les faits. Un programme de travail s'ensuit : regarder tous ces écrits que sont éloges, entrées, adresses de toute sorte comme des textes à part entière. Ils parlent d'amour, amour du prince pour ses sujets et des sujets pour leur prince, selon un jeu subtil, dont le concept d'oppression ne rend pas compte. Trouver des angles d'attaque, des outils critiques adaptés, voire de nouvelles méthodes de travail, dans certains cas éditer des textes qui le méritent, tel est le propos de la collection.

    • Seth Heringer – Theology and History

      Seth Heringer's Uniting History and Theology (Fortress Press) argues that Christians do not need to use the historical-critical method to make historical claims but should instead write boldly Christian history. By using the historical method, grounded as it is in an incomplete understating of German historicism, they close off investigation of the past from the aesthetic and, importantly, from God. This is why 20th-century Christian scholarship has failed to unite history and theology. Instead of relying on the historical method as the primary way to think about past events, Christians need to reimage what historical work entails. Heringer thus presents a Christian approach to history that dialogues with recent developments in historical theory.
    • Q&A – Matt Lynch and Matt Bates

      You've spoken. We've listened.  You've asked for more episodes giving a window into the secret lives of OnScript co-hosts. Or at least, you've asked us to allow more time for chat between hosts. So we'll try to do a bit more of that. In this episode, Matt Lynch and Matt Bates, the co-founders of OnScript, ask each other questions about Paul, hell, life, violence, divine-human appearances in the OT, faith as allegiance, Matt B.'s new book, books we've read, and more. Enjoy, and share the word!
    • Sharon Ketcham – Reciprocal Church

      What is the relationship between the individual Christian and the community of faith? How do we navigate the pendulum swings between an overemphasis on the individual at the expense of community and an overemphasis on community at the expense of the individual? In this episode, OnScript host Amy Brown Hughes talks with her colleague Sharon Ketcham about her new book Reciprocal Church: Becoming a Community Where Faith Flourishes Beyond High School, how often we talk about faith as a "product," what theological anthropology must undergird our ecclesiology, and where hope lies in the future of the church.
    • Joseph Gordon – Divine Scripture in Human Understanding

      Episode: We all know that for Christians, Scripture is crucial–it’s the lifeblood of the church. But when we press deeper, what is it? What do words like authority and inspiration […]

    In 510 BC the city of Sybaris, an ancient Achaean colony founded in 720/710 BC, was destroyed by the city of Kroton through the deviation of the Crathis riverbed, according to Strabo. Some seven decades later, in 444 BC, the same site saw the foundation of the Panhellenic colony of Thurii, situated just above the remains of the ancient settlement. While the centuries preceding the destruction of Sybaris and following the foundation of Thurii are widely documented both archaeologically and historically, research on the intermediate period between the lives of the two cities has been based almost entirely on historical and numismatic sources, without serious reference to the regional archaeological data. During this seventy year period, contrary to the prevailing hypothesis, life in Sybaris and its territory continued, as testified by archaeological evidence from the city and its chora. This paper focuses on this particular historical period, drawing on that evidence, especially ceramics and related contexts, and provides an initial interpretation of the data in its regional context, re-establishing a forgotten connection between the Achaean colony and its Panhellenic successor.
    Mattia D’Acri is a graduate of the Scuola di Specializzazione in Archeologia – Matera and is currently a PhD student in the Classical Archaeology program at the University of Missouri-Columbia. His main interest is the study of ceramics, with particular focus on the Protohistoric and Archaic periods in central-southern Italy. He has done fieldwork at Rome (S. Omobono; Regia), Gabii, Francavilla Marittima and many others. Moreover he published different papers on various aspects, especially of the pottery assemblages recovered from these sites

    Ever since Paul Zanker published his book ‘Forum Augustum’ in 1968, debate has existed on the Forum of Augustus as a ‘propaganda-forum’. In this article a novel approach is suggested to add to this debate by borrowing the notion of ‘appropriation’ from culture history. In order to make it a suitable approach for the study of ancient monuments, the three questions of how, why and who serve as analytical tools to study the process of appropriation. The case under study is the group of Republican statues at the forum, more specifically the statue of Pompeius Magnus. The result of the analysis is twofold: 1) appropriation is a useful notion for the study of monuments where the past played a pivotal role; 2) psychological preparations, selection critera and deliberate alterations, and the design of comparison for visitors were all highly relevant in the appropriation of the Republican past in the Forum Augustum.
    Sander Egberink is a bachelor student of history at the University of Amsterdam. He specialises in early Roman Imperial history and the role of the Roman past in Fascist Italy. He views history through a cultural lens. He spent half a year in Bologna with an Erasmus grant where he developed his Italian language skills and took a course with the KNIR on nationhood. He plans to start a researchmaster in Ancient History at the UvA the next academic year.

    This paper critically re-evaluates the publication history of the Tomba Campana in Veii from its discovery until today. The Tomba Campana is of great value for Italian archaeology because of its unique and early wall paintings and rich grave goods. However, its modern post-excavation history is turbulent and controversial. The aim of this paper is to give a short overview of the events surrounding the discovery of the tomb and its contents both during and after the discovery, in order to add new elements to the line of interpretation of F. Roncalli, F. Delpino, et.al. The introduction will discuss the publications from the 19th and 20th centuries. Following this introduction, a short biography will be given about the discoverer, Giovanni Pietro Campana. Subsequently, the contents of the tomb will be discussed. Lastly the paper will contextualise the ‘discovery’ within the context of how antiquarians dealt with authenticity in the field of archaeology in the early 19th century, the period in which the tomb was discovered.
    During her Bachelor in Archaeology & Prehistory at the University of Amsterdam Eline Verburg (1993) became fascinated by the archaeology of Pre-Roman Italy, the Etruscan culture in specific. After having finished a Minor in Museumstudies, she studied one year at the oldest University of Europe, the Università di Bologna, where she attended lectures in Etruscology. In January 2018 she completed her Research Master in Archaeology with a thesis titled: ‘New Research on an Old ‘Discovery’: the Tomba Campana.

    Very early-on in Greek history mountaintops were already used as watch-towers and signalling stations from which messages could be sent over long distances by fire signals. In these earliest examples it was only possible to send one prearranged message, something that was often not sufficient in case communicating parties needed to communicate on urgent matters. The 4th-century BC military author Aeneas Tacticus accordingly invented a method for fire signalling, whereby a series of messages could be sent related to events that often occur in warfare. The system might have been used as a cryptographic device. Due to errors in Aeneas’ system, Polybius improved another system based on the same principles, which in turn formed the basis for the modern ‘Polybius square’, used by the Germans for their ADFGX- and ADFGVX-ciphers: secret cipher systems used in the First World War. There is no clear evidence linking Aeneas’ fire signalling method directly to the German ciphers. However, it will be shown that Polybius used Aeneas’ system in his own fire signalling method. Polybius’ method in turn impacted the development of the Polybius square and its use in the ADFGX and ADFGVX ciphers. By analysing the ancient history of Polybius’ method for fire signalling and the merits of applying this to the use of the square in the German ciphers, it will be shown how an ancient fire signalling method inspired modern ciphers.
    Martine Diepenbroek is a Dutch PhD student at the University of Bristol (UK). In her PhD thesis she works on the role of ancient cryptography and steganography in confidential correspondence in Greco-Roman warfare. A key figure in this field was the 4th-century BC military author Aeneas Tacticus. In her thesis she thoroughly analyses Aeneas’ work ‘How to Survive Under Siege’, and compares this to other ancient sources on cryptography and  steganography.
