Leuven Online Index of Ptolemaic and Roman Hieroglyphic Texts: Ptolemaic Temple Texts (PTT)
Ce projet s’est donné comme but de produire durant les années à venir une traduction des textes hiéroglyphiques provenant des temples de l’époque ptolémaïque et romaine. Ces textes s’imposent comme source majeure pour l’étude non seulement de la religion, mais également de divers autres aspects de la civilisation égyptienne. Cependant, l’écriture hiéroglyphique de cette époque, appelée le ptolémaïque, n’en facilite pas l’accès, d’où le choix de mettre à disposition une transcription et une traduction continue des textes. 

Le site est conçu pour être un portal de discussion autour de la lecture de ces textes. L'interprétation, théologique ou autre, n'est actuellement pas envisagée. D'autre part, la base de données attachée à la transcription et la traduction des textes sera reprise dans le Berlin-Wörterbuch project. La lecture des textes ptolémaïques contient un grand nombre de problèmes et personne ne peut prétendre les solutionner tout seul. C'est pourquoi j'invite tous ceux qui travaillent sur les textes ptolémaïques à me renvoyer des solutions ou des améliorations, à me signaler des imperfections ou même des fautes. Toute information sera incluse dans les notes accompagnant la transcription avec indication de l'auteur. 

Le projet a débuté grâce à un crédit octroyé par le Fonds voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek-Vlaanderen et sera développé en étroite collaboration avec le Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae de la Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften. Le vocabulaire des textes sera ainsi intégré dans le dictionnaire qui peut être consulté en ligne (http://aaew2.bbaw.de/tla/).

The National Roman Fabric Reference Collection: a Handbook

Museum of London Archaeology Service Monograph 2, 1998. First published in Great Britain in 1998 by the Museum of London Archaeology Service.
Roberta Tomber and John Dore, with contributions by John Cooper, Ian Freestone, Sylvia Humphrey and Andrew Middleton, and additional information from Brenda Dickinson, Kay Hartley and Valery Rigby.








Welcome to the on-line version of the National Roman Fabric Reference Collection.
The original project was initiated by English Heritage and was conducted as a collaboration between English Heritage (now Historic England), the Museum of London Specialist Services (now Museum of London Archaeology) and the British Museum. The resulting monograph, Tomber and Dore 1998, The National Roman Fabric Reference Collection: A Handbook, MoLAS Monograph 2, was reprinted in 2002 and is now out of print, but the original text in its entirety, is available on this site. There are a number of small changes between this resource and the printed version, particularly in the thin-section descriptions. In the case of any discrepancies between the two versions, the on-line one should take precedence.
This web site comprises the original macroscopic photographs of fresh sherd breaks that were published in Tomber and Dore 1998. Here they are available at a significantly larger size than was possible to achieve in print and viewed at a width of field of 24 mm. The original photographs and their digitisation was the work of Andy Chopping of Museum of London Archaeology (© Museum of London Archaeology). In addition, the on-line resource has been enhanced by the addition of a thin-section photomicrograph for each fabric. These were taken by Roberta Tomber in the Department of Conservation and Scientific Research (now Department of Scientific Research, © The British Museum) using a Leica DMRX petrological microscope, mostly in cross-polarised light (XPL), although plane-polarised light (PPL) was sometimes used for clarity. In most cases their width of field is 1.74 mm...

Arimnestos, logo Museo, Comune di Verucchio.
La rivista nasce con l’intento di proseguire l’attività di ricerca avviata ormai da molti anni dal Museo Civico Archeologico di Verucchio. Obiettivo centrale del Museo è sempre stato quello di unire un approccio scientifico rigoroso ad una proposta accessibile e godibile da parte del pubblico. Il primo numero si articola in tre sezioni distinte. La prima, dedicata a Verucchio, si apre con due relazioni sui dati d’archivio relativi ai materiali conservati nel Museo Nazionale Preistorico Etnografico L. Pigorini di Roma e nel Museo Civico Archeologico di Bologna e alle ricerche e dati di archivio relativi alla Necropoli Lippi. Si prosegue con la presentazione dei dati di scavo: schede preliminari di ulteriori tombe scavate nella necropoli Lippi tra il 2006 e il 2008; studio dei resti botanici della ricchissima tomba Lippi 12/2005; relazione sull’intervento in area di insediamento in Via Nanni. Vengono inoltre inserite altre presentazioni complete di classi di materiali classificati tipologicamente. Nella seconda sezione, dedicata all’Emilia-Romagna, viene presentato il tema dei troni in legno, anche alla luce di altri scavi condotti a Bologna e Imola, e lo scavo della necropoli di Pontesanto a Imola. La terza sezione vede un contributo sulle tombe a inumazione della necropoli Emo di Padova, uno sulle perle di vetro a uccellino e infine uno sul metodo narrativo nell’arte delle situle.
This journal was created with the intention of continuing the research which has for many years been carried out by the Museo Civico Archeologico of Verucchio. The main aim of the Museum is that of combining a rigorous scientific approach with one which is both accessible and pleasing to the public. The first issue is divided into three sections. The first, dedicated to Verucchio, opens with two reports on archive data. One deals with archival material relating to material kept in the Museo Nazionale Preistorico L. Pigorini of Rome, and in the Museo Civico Archeologico of Bologna, and the other with archival material relating to research and excavations concerning the Lippi necropolis. Then there are a set of papers presenting excavation data: reports on some more of the tombs excavated between 2005 and 2009 in the Lippi necropolis (40 tombs had been published in the 2015 volume); a study of the botanical remains from the very rich tomb Lippi 12/2005; and a paper on the excavation in Via Nanni which revealed part the settlement. Finally, there are four papers each presenting in full a catalogue of a single class of material and its typological classification. The second section, dedicated to Emilia-Romagna, consists of a paper on the wooden thrones from Verucchio, viewing them in the wider context of other excavations conducted at Bologna and Imola, and a paper on the excavation in the necropolis of Pontesanto at Imola. The third section contains a paper on the inhumation burials in the necropolis of Emo at Padua, one on glass bird beads, and finally one on the narrative method in situla art.

Minerva: Journal of Classical Translation
MINERVA
We are MINERVA, a student-run journal focusing on Classical translation. We promote creativity through translation both into and out of ancient languages. We seek to revive and reinvigorate languages that some would wrongly call 'dead' and to exhibit the extent to which Classical literature informs the world we live in. The art of translation requires a nuanced understanding of relevant texts and contexts alike:

What would Obama's Res Gestae look like?

How would Caesar narrate the Iraq War?

How viciously would Aristophanes ridicule Donald Trump?

Could Catullus' poems take the form of a lovelorn teenage journal?

We value an interesting and original approach above all; yet an approach that communicates the essence and narrative voice of a text. We welcome submissions from Trinity students, staff, and alumni, as well as from friends and enthusiasts. If you have any questions please email minerva.journal@gmail.com.

Codex Zacynthius

Codex Zacynthius
Codex Zacynthius
Codex Zacynthius is a palimpsest. The older level is an eighth-century copy of St Luke’s Gospel (only parts of the first eleven chapters survive) with a marginal commentary. This was erased at the end of the twelfth century and replaced with a lectionary of the New Testament, also in Greek. This later text may have been written in Rhodes.

Codex Zacynthius is an important document because

• it is the oldest copy of the New Testament to contain a commentary written in the margins
• this commentary is a compilation of extracts from early Christian writings, most of which have not survived at all, or are only known in translations
• it provides important evidence about the development of Greek scripts, since it was written with three different scripts, and dates to a period (probably the eighth century) from which few manuscripts survive
• its text of St Luke is closely related to some of the most reliable and ancient copies to survive, such as the fourth-century Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus
• it contains a division of the text into paragraphs that is found in only one other manuscript: the fourth-century Codex Vaticanus

The manuscript was on the Island of Zante in the early nineteenth century, when it was given in 1820 by a leading noble to General Colin Macaulay, who the following year presented it to the British and Foreign Bible Society. It was bought from the Society by Cambridge University Library in 2014.

In addition to the navigation within this interface, users may find it useful to explore the list of catena contents and the list of lectionary contents, as well as the concordance of the overtext and undertext pages, hosted by the University of Birmingham.

This edition, comprising images, transcription and translation was prepared by the Codex Zacynthius Project at the Institute for Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing (ITSEE), University of Birmingham. This project was funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) from 2018–20. The project has also produced a book describing the manuscript and its commentary.

Archaeological Survey and Regional Approaches to the Study of Aegean Landscapes
Methods in the Archaeology of Greece, ep. 1

The American School of Classical Studies is pleased to bring you a new webinar series, focusing on exploring particular methodologies and subfields of Classical Archaeology. This inaugural instalment explores the field of regional archaeological survey in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean. Archaeological survey was long considered a simple forerunner to excavation, then later an upstart methodological newcomer. Systematic regional survey is now an established and fundamental element of archaeological methodology. Join two experts in this field as they discuss the history of the discipline, its current status, and its incredible potential for refining and redefining our understanding of the ancient world.

Byzance et ses périphéries (Mondes grec, balkanique et musulman): Hommage à Alain Ducellier
Byzance et ses périphéries (Mondes grec, balkanique et musulman)
Alain Ducellier, né à Paris en 1934 a fait ses études aux lycées Jacques-Decour et Henri IV puis a soutenu en Sorbonne, dès 1957, un D.E.S. d’Histoire byzantine sous la direction de Rodolphe Guilland. Agrégé d’Histoire en 1959, il a entrepris, sous la direction de Paul Lemerle, une thèse d’Etat consacrée à La Façade maritime de l’Albanie au Moyen Âge. Durazzo et Valona du xe au xve siècle, soutenue en Sorbonne en 1971. Professeur au lycée de Reims puis à Janson de Sailly à Paris, il devient assistant à la faculté de Tunis de 1963 à 1967, puis maître-assistant à l’université de Toulouse où il est ensuite élu maître de conférences en 1971 et professeur en 1973. De 1981 à 1985 il est membre du jury de l’agrégation d’histoire. Membre du L.A. 186, Histoire et Civilisation de Byzance (Paris, Collège de France) et du laboratoire Diasporas (Université de Toulouse-Le Mirail).
Cette carrière a déterminé la nature et l’évolution de son enseignement comme celle de ses recherches : l’assise majeure a toujours été l’histoire de l’Empire byzantin, dont il a souvent privilégié les périphéries, comme en témoignent ses nombreux travaux relatifs à l’Albanie médiévale et aux Balkans en général, mais aussi les relations avec l’environnement musulman auquel il a longtemps consacré une partie de son enseignement à Tunis puis à Toulouse.

Hugoye: Journal of Syriac Studies
ISSN: 1097-3702
http://www.bethmardutho.org/images/BM-Images/hugoyelogo2.jpg
Hugoye: Journal of Syriac Studies is an electronic journal dedicated to the study of the Syriac tradition, published semi-annually (in January and July) by Beth Mardutho. Published since 1998, Hugoye seeks to offer the best scholarship available in the field of Syriac studies.

The word Hugoye, the plural form of Hugoyo, derives from the root hg' meaning 'to think, meditate, study'. Hugoyo itself means 'study, meditation'. In modern times, the term has been applied for academic studies; hence, Hugoye Suryoye translates as 'Syriac Studies'.

Sasanika: Late Antique Near East Project
Sasanika: Late Antique Near East Project
One of the most remarkable empires of the first millennium CE was that of the Sasanian Empire. Emanating from southern Iran’s Persis region in the third century CE, the Sasanian domain eventually encompassed not only modern day Iran, Ag and Iraq, but also the greater part of Central Asia, the Caucasus, including at times the regions corresponding to present-day Syria, Afghanistan, Turkey, and Egypt. This geographically diverse empire brought together a striking array of ethnicities and religious practices. Arameans, Arabs, Armenians, Persians, Romans, and Goths, as well as a host of other peoples, all lived and labored under Sasanian rule. The Sasanians established a relatively tolerant imperial system, creating a vibrant communal life among their Zoroastrian, Jewish, and Christian citizens.
Sasanika is dedicated to the promotion of research and study on the history of the Sasanian dynasty. Its mission is to facilitate direct and free access to primary information. This period of Iranian history and culture encompasses a vast geographical region that goes beyond the territorial bounds of modern-day Iran and most of the former archaeological work was completed by the German, French, Italians and Russian excavators with only the recent archaeological work done in Farsi and English. As a result, the information has been published in various languages and often in old and out of print publications. Given the geographic diversity of this material, the implementation and use of the English language would aid in providing accessibility to a greater number of audience and surpassing the barrier of multilingualism to facilitate greater access to many academic scholars, university students and public users. 
Although most of our team members volunteer their time to maintain the site, the production of high-quality articles and the support of research projects require funding. We are planning major changes in the website and inclusion of further information and research about the Sasanian Empire. It is through the generosity of Sasanian enthusiasts and those interested in the history of pre-IslamicIran that Sasanika thrives.

The  S C R I P T A   Q U M R A N I C A   E L E C T R O N I C A   project (SQE) is all about bringing the famous Dead Sea Scrolls, first discovered by beduins in 1947 and today curated at the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) and the Shrine of the Book, to the digital age. Its aim is to provide a new standard online platform for Dead Sea Scrolls editing and to prepare pioneer Digital Scholarly Editions of Qumran Texts. It is the intention of the SQE project to provide the public with world-wide free access to its tools for Dead Sea Scrolls research. The resulting dynamic, extensible, and collaborative platform will ultimately set the stage for the next generation of Dead Sea Scrolls research.

By combining two major databases (the digital imagesof all known Qumran fragments at the Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library, IAA, Jerusalem, and the textual and linguistic datafor all texts included in the Qumran­wörter­buch, Qumran Dictionary, at Göttingen Academy), SQE brings together scholars of the Scrolls and AI as well as database specialists on the one hand, as well as a broader public on the other hand. The highly customized and cutting-edge tools will enable scholars and students of the Scrolls (and more than 25.000 fragments) deeper insights than previously thought possible.

      The current volume presents the final excavation report of three late Middle Kingdom settlement layers at the site of Tell el-Dabʿa in the Egyptian Nile delta.
      These settlement layers comprise a number of dwellings, which belonged to non-elite people judging by their size and remaining inventories, who lived in the marsh-like environment in the north of Egypt in the late Middle Kingdom (ca 1830-1700 BC). Beside the mud brick architecture typical for ancient Egyptian housing, storage facilities such as rounded silos, open air hearths, industrial ovens, and irregular alleyways were unearthed.
      The houses are systematically described and analysed in combination with the associated finds. These finds include pottery and stone vessels, stone tools such as querns and grinders, chipped stone tools and a few other items made of faience. A small number of objects made of hard rock implies that they must have been imported because such stones do not exist in the delta. Importantly animal bones inform us about the diet of the people living there, whilst imported pottery vessels from the Levant and Upper Egypt show these exchange networks. This book provides a much-needed primary source for late Middle Kingdom settlement archaeology, a topic generally neglected in the literature.
      In addition, the book describes a settlement type so far not represented in the known repertoire, namely a selforganised settlement with individual dwellings not uniform in size or lay-out. Such lay-outs stand in contrast to intentionally founded settlements following a rigid plan in rows with orthogonal streets and regular blocks of houses as known from Lahun in Northern Upper Egypt or from the forts in Nubia. Moreover, due to the fact that three successive settlement layers are presented, it is possible to follow the development of the settlement over a period of more than 100 years. In this way the book adds information to the current corpus of settlement types.
      Die vorliegende Arbeit enthält den abschließenden Ausgrabungsbericht von drei Siedlungsphasen in Tell el-Dabʿa, das im ägyptischen Nildelta liegt.
      Diese Siedlungen wurden vermutlich von Menschen aus den unteren Schichten bewohnt. Dies kann aus der Größe der Häuser und dem erhalten gebliebenen Hausrat geschlossen werden. Der Bericht rekonstruiert die Lebensumstände der Menschen im marschähnlichen Nildelta im späten Mittleren Reich (ca. 1830-1700 v. Chr.). Neben der Schlammziegelarchitektur, die typisch für altägyptische Wohnbauten ist, wurden Rundsilos zur Speicherung von Getreide, Feuerstellen, industrielle Öfen und unregelmäßige Verbindungswege ans Licht gebracht.
      Die Wohnhäuser werden systematisch beschrieben und gemeinsam mit den Funden vorgestellt und analysiert. Keramik- und Steingefäße, Steingeräte und Figurinen aus Fayence sowie Objekte aus Hartgestein bilden die häufigsten Fundkategorien. Die Tierknochenanalysen wurden ebenfalls miteinbezogen, sodass über die Ernährung der Bewohner Aufschluss gegeben werden kann. Importierte Keramikgefäße aus der Levante und Oberägypten geben Einblicke in das Warenaustauschnetzwerk mit diesen Gebieten. Dieses Buch bildet eine reiche Primärquelle zur Siedlungsarchäologie in Ägypten.
      Der vorgestellte Siedlungstyp ist durch die bekannten Siedlungen bisher nicht abgedeckt. Die Anordnung erfolgte unregelmäßig mit individuellen Häusern, die weder in der Größe noch im Grundriss einheitlich sind. Eine solche Anlage, die man als organisch gewachsen bezeichnen könnte, steht im Gegensatz zu den geplanten orthogonalen Siedlungen, die als typisch für Ägypten gelten und die aus Lahun oder den nubischen Forts bekannt sind. Darüber hinaus kann durch die Vorlage von drei aufeinanderfolgenden Siedlungsschichten die Entwicklung dieser Siedlung über einen Zeitraum von mehr als 100 Jahren nachgezeichnet werden. So trägt dieser Band Neues zum bisherigen Corpus von Siedlungstypen bei.
