LOPODVNVM VI: Die 3D-Rekonstruktion des römischen Forums von Ladenburg Beschreibung und Begründung der Nachbildung

Forschungen und Berichte zur Archäologie in Baden-Württemberg
Das Zentrum der römischen Stadt Lopodunum beherrschte ein Baukomplex aus Forum und Basilika, der sich durch eine enorme Fläche und ein großes Volumen auszeichnete. Von den Gebäuden blieb allerdings bis auf Reste der Fundamente nur wenig im mittelalterlich geprägten Kern der heutigen Stadt Ladenburg erhalten. Die vorliegende Abhandlung erläutert die Überlegungen, die zur virtuellen 3D-Rekonstruktion des antiken Forums geführt haben, wie sie heute im Lobdengau-Museum in Ladenburg präsentiert wird. Neben der Darlegung der Rekonstruktionsansätze werden dabei auch Perspektiven für die weitere wissenschaftliche Beschäftigung mit dem historisch so bedeutsamen römischen Baukomplex aufgezeigt.

Two new epigraphic volumes announced

Two new epigraphic volumes announced
Dear Members of the AIEGL Community,
we are happy to announce that two new epigraphic volumes have just been published. The volumes stem from the papers presented in Venice in October 2018 in the course of two conferences sponsored by our Association, to which several other contributions have been added. We attach the front page and the Table of Contents of both volumes. Their full digital content is available online in Gold Open Access format at the following links, from which you can also download the pdf versions of the whole volumes, as well as of each single article:
Altera pars laboris. Studi sulla tradizione manoscritta delle iscrizioni antiche, a cura di L. Calvelli, G. Cresci, A. Buonopane, Venice, Edizioni Ca' Foscari, 2019
La falsificazione epigrafica. Questioni di metodo e casi di studio, a cura di L. Calvelli, Venice, Edizioni Ca' Foscari, 2019
Buona lettura!

The gold and silver coinage of Philip II published to PELLA

The gold and silver coinage of Philip II published to PELLA
After considerable effort by ANS curator Peter van Alfen, the gold and silver coin types of Philip II of Macedon have been published to PELLA. This typology, based on Georges Le Rider's 1977 Le monnayage d’argent et d’or de Philippe II frappé en Macédoine de 359 à 294, has been numbered 1-382. Le Rider's corpus is actually a die study, and the numbering system is based on die combinations rather than types. As such, there are about 2,200 or so die combinations that correspond to the 382 types. These types were given a new numbering scheme, pella.philip_ii.1 to 382, but all of the Le Rider numbers are also URIs in order to establish a concordance between Le Rider and the new scheme so that collections that cataloged their coins with Le Rider numbers can submit their RDF with those URIs or map the Le Rider to the PELLA type number.

Le Rider numbers as subtypes or deprecated types

The correspondence between PELLA and Le Rider numbers is either 1:n or 1:1. When a typology has multiple possible die combinations, the Le Rider number is considered to be a subtype of the PELLA super type. For example, there are three die combinations for PELLA Philip II no. 1, Le Rider 1.1 to 1.3. If a museum has cataloged one of their coins to Le Rider 1.1, that coin will show up on the subtype page for that combination as well as the page for PELLA Philip II 1, which gathers all of the physical specimens linked directly to that URI or any possible subtype URI (via Nomisma.org's SPARQL endpoint).
Philip II 125 with the first specimen from a Nomisma partner.

The other category in which a PELLA and Le Rider number might correlate is 1:1. In these cases, the Le Rider URI still exists, but is not a subtype (linked in the RDF as skos:broader). Instead, the Le Rider Linked Open Data is dcterms:isReplacedBy the PELLA URI, which forces an automatic semantic HTTP 303 redirect in the browser (e.g., Le Rider 5.120). The underlying RDF for the Le Rider URI is still accessible through content negotiation or appending .ttl, .jsonld, or .rdf onto the URI. These two URIs are still linked together by skos:exactMatch, which facilitates the display of coins linked to Le Rider URIs on the PELLA page.

Uploading spreadsheets in Numishare

The publication of this typology represents a breakthrough in another way. Last summer, I spent several weeks developing a spreadsheet import mechanism in the Numishare back-end. I detailed it here (along with recommendations for structuring numismatic data in Google Sheets). After some further tweaking this week, the Philip II typology is the first spreadsheet data imported into Numishare in production. Out of all of the typology projects we have published online in the last 8 years (since the OCRE prototype developed in 2012), this is the first one that did not require me to write an intermediate PHP script. I cannot overemphasize how important this is. Curators can now formulate their own data, according to the specifications above, and publish new projects without technical intervention. After the conclusion of the Hellenistic Royal Coinages project in May, I will turn my attention to refactoring older spreadsheets from OCRE into this new format, and major updates in OCRE can be made directly by curators. I have essentially coded myself out of a repetitive task, saving myself a lot of time and the ANS a lot of money in the long term.

What's next for PELLA?

Now that the URIs for Philip II are activated, I imagine that our colleagues in Berlin and Paris will begin cataloging with them. Peter has updated our curatorial database with these new IDs, but the data have not been pushed from our [terrible] FileMaker database to Mantis, but you should expect to see the ANS's coins of Philip II online in the coming days. In the mean time, a single tetradrachm from the Fralin Museum at the University of Virginia is the first contributor to the new corpus, for Philip II 125.

Egypt Exploration Society: New online events launched

Egypt Exploration Society: New online events launched
Following the successful trial of online webinars from the EES, we will be launching a programme of online lectures during our closure due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

These lectures will be provided for free over the next two weeks in order to ensure that our supporters around the world have a good reason to stay at home, stay motivated, and stay active. We hope that this stimulates responsible online socialising focused around topics that we are all passionate about. Each webinar has a chat facility so you can participate in the lecture and ask questions of the presenter and other attendees.
ART.212, Arab tombs near Siout by Amelia Edwards, 1877The first lectures will focus on the EES, its history, and collections
Webinars have a maximum attendance capacity of 100, so please only sign up if you’re confident that you can attend. We will repeat webinars, rather than record them, so that people can experience greater engagement with other participants. They will be repeated at different times during the day (including early morning and evening in the UK) so that supporters around the world can choose a time that suits them.
Lectures will also cover recent archive projects and fundraising appeals
Don’t forget, if you know people around you that might be interested in these webinars then feel free to share the links with them.

During this difficult time of self-isolation, we would like to thank you for your patience if any technical problems happen and want to reassure all of our supporters that we are here to help where we can.

The Polychrome Hieroglyph Research Project

The Polychrome Hieroglyph Research Project

Welcome to the polychrome hieroglyph research project!

This website displays the preliminary results of ongoing research currently carried out at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium, into the use and meaning of colour in Egyptian hieroglyphic inscriptions.
It is powered by a database of polychrome hieroglyphs which at present contains over 3500 occurrences of individual signs.
Uniquely amongst the earliest writing systems, the Egyptian hieroglyphic script was sometimes enhanced by colouring the signs. This was not done in an arbitrary fashion, but was conventional, with each colour used in a conscious attempt either at materialism, naturalism, semi-naturalism or as a metaphor. This study aims to shed some light on the processes involved in writing in colour. The project clearly shows that a polychrome canon was in use, in a remarkably coherent and stable fashion, during some two thousand five hundred years, from the Old Kingdom right through to the Ptolemaic period.

Egyptian textiles and their production: ‘word’ and ‘object’
These essays present the results of a workshop that took place on 24 November 2017 at the Centre for Textile Research (CTR), University of Copenhagen. The event was organised within the framework of the MONTEX project—a Marie Skłodowska-Curie individual fellowship conducted by Maria Mossakowska-Gaubert in collaboration with the Contextes et Mobiliers programme of the French Institute for Oriental Archaeology in Cairo (IFAO), and with support from the Institut français du Danemark and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Twelve essays are arranged in 4 sections: I. Weaving looms: texts, images, remains; II. Technology of weaving: study cases; III. Dyeing: terminology and technology; IV. Textile production in written sources: organisation and economy.

Contributors include: Maria Mossakowska-Gaubert, Johanna Sigl, Fleur Letellier-Willemin, Lise Bender Jørgensen, Anne Kwaspen, Barbara Köstner, Peder Flemestad, Ines Bogensperger & Helga Rösel-Mautendorfer, Isabelle Marthot-Santaniello, Aikaterini Koroli, Kerstin Dross-Krüpe, Jennifer Cromwell, and Dominique Cardon. Essays include 66 full-colour illustrations.

The Biblical Toolkit: Collecting Resources for Biblical, Classical, and Near Eastern Studies

The Biblical Toolkit is a simple site for collecting useful digital resources relevant to Biblical and Jewish Studies, Ancient Near Eastern, and Eastern Mediterranean studies, all broadly speaking, aimed at most academic and research levels. It developed out of my own bookmarks, which I wanted to offload from my browser. Hence I do not really provide advice, review, or commentary, and try to just collate. I have put it on the web for use by others in the hopes that it might declutter digital lives and expand existing interests.

A collection of treebanks of poetic Ancient Greek texts, starting with drama and archaic epos. For Aeschylus, Sophocles and (coming soon) Homer and Hesiod, the treebanks are taken from Perseus'Ancient Greek and Latin Dependency Treebank, but with some modifications in the annotation introduced by Francesco Mambrini.

Open Access Monograph Series: Black Sea Studies

[First posted in AWOL 29 August, updated (new URLs) 23 March 2020]

Black Sea Studies
The Black Sea, known to the Greeks as Pontos Euxeinos or the "Hospitable Sea", is the focus of this series, which is concerned with ethnic relations, cultural interaction, and economic interdependence in the Black Sea region in the period c. 700 BC-AD 325, but with a main focus on the years ca. 400 BC-100 AD.

Although the Black Sea region is viewed as a whole, attention is concentrated on the north and south coasts of the Black Sea region, i.e. of modern Russia, Ukraine and Turkey.

Publications devote special attention to centre-periphery relations, to cultural interaction as an expression of ethnic and cultural strategies, and the analyses are based on a long-term view of the Black Sea region as a link between Asia and Europe.

All the articles in the books can be downloaded as read-only pdf-files.

Euripide et la polyphonie mythologique / Terra e territorio nella Sicilia greca

Dossier 1 : Les articles s’intéressent à la variété des traitements de certains épisodes mythologiques dans les tragédies d’Euripide : les intrigues offrent des versions d’un mythe qui s’écartent de celles que la tradition littéraire transmet, ou bien qui présentent des variations sur un même épisode (que ce soit d’une pièce d’Euripide à une autre ou au sein d’une même tragédie). Les différents articles de cet ouvrage analysent quelques-unes de ces variations (concernant le mythe d’Œdipe, d’Héraklès, d’Iphigénie ou encore de Cassandre) pour déterminer leurs enjeux interprétatifs.
Dossier 2 (intégralement rédigé en italien) : Les articles traitent des aspects politiques, économiques et juridiques liés à la terre en Sicile à l’époque archaïque et classique. Les thèmes abordés sont : le contrôle des territoires ; la citoyenneté ; la colonisation ; la cartographie ; l’épigraphie ; historiographie ; histoire ; archéologie.
