The Oriental Institute Coffin Texts Publication Project

With the appearance of this volume, the oriental institute marks the true completion of the egyptian Coffin Texts Project, an international cooperative program begun by James Henry breasted and Alan H. Gardiner in 1922 and edited by Adriaan De Buck from 1935 until his death in 1959. When published in 1961, volume 7, De Buck’s final volume, was announced as “the last volume of the autographed Coffin Texts in the contemplated Project” (p. vii), although the Oriental Institute had never produced the autographed edition of Pyramid Texts within the Coffin Text corpus that had been explicitly promised in the introduction to volume 1. Assumed to comprise a “distinct” and “foreign body” within the Coffin Texts, these long-lived spells were “reserved for later” (p. xi). After a lapse of forty years, a formally renewed Coffin Texts Project was authorized by the director in 2001, with the goal of completing the Oriental Institute’s outstanding commitments. The translation volume once envisioned and entrusted to Tjalling Bruinsma had been rendered unnecessary by the publications of Raymond O. Faulkner in 1969 (Pyramid Texts) and 1973 –1978 (Coffin Texts), which serve to engage scholars and laymen alike. Glossaries, bibliographies, symposia, and detailed textual studies appeared, but the critical edition of middle Kingdom Pyramid Texts remained unaccomplished. by careful examination of the oriental institute’s original collation sheets and unpublished sources from Lisht, James P. Allen, after years of concentrated study, has now fulfilled the task admirably. It is hoped that the new edition stimulates discussion not only of the longevity of the Pyramid Texts, but of the nature of the Coffin Texts themselves. While breasted insisted that the Pyramid Texts were “sharply distinguished” from the Coffin Texts,1 the frequent appearance of “Pyramid Texts” on coffins (among the narrowly defined “Coffin Texts”) leaves this opinion open to question. ironically, the one coffin acquired in Chicago by breasted for study by the Coffin Texts Project (oim 12072) contained only “Pyramid Texts” and was therefore excluded from the initial seven volumes. now at last these middle Kingdom texts on a coffin can be examined among the “Coffin Texts.”

Oriental Institute Diyala Excavations Publications
n16367_72dpi.png
Significance of Excavations: Located in the lower Diyala river basin northeast of Baghdad, excavations at the sites of Tell Agrab, Tell Asmar (ancient Eshnunna), Ishchali (ancient Neribtum), and Khafaje (ancient Tutub), have provided some of the most comprehensive data for Mesopotamian archaeology and chronology. Undertaken by the University of Chicago‚ Oriental Institute (1930-1937) and by the University of Pennsylvania (1938-1939), these projects were of an unprecedented scale. Up to 25% of the total area of each site were excavated, uncovering not only the remains of palaces and temples, but also of houses, manufacturing facilities, streets, and urban defensive systems, with some soundings extending as deep as 16 meters below the mounds‚present surfaces. Covering the time between the late Uruk period and the end of the Old Babylonian period (3000-1700 BC), the Diyala material represents a crucial part of Mesopotamia's early history during which large territorial states emerged, cities grew to unprecedented sizes, and the cuneiform writing system emerged.

Bruno Helly: Quarante années de recherche en pays greq 1966-2008
Le projet de rassembler les différents articles de Bruno Helly, Directeur de recherche émérite au CNRS, est né de deux volontés : d’une part rendre hommage à cet éminent chercheur au moment où il arrivait à l’heure de la retraite, d’autre part permettre ou faciliter l’accès aux nombreux articles qu’il a écrits et dont certains ont été publiés dans des revues parfois difficiles à trouver. L'importance des travaux de Bruno Helly pour la recherche épigraphique et historique sur la Thessalie n'est plus à démontrer, mais la diversité de ses centres d'intérêt ne l'est pas davantage, qu'il s'agisse de fouilles archéologiques à Salamine de Chypre au début de sa carrière, ou d'études d'archéosismicité qui, ces dernières années, l'ont mené de France en Grèce et jusqu'au Bangladesh ou en Arménie.

C'est pourquoi, lorsque nous avons entrepris de rassembler ses articles, il ne nous est pas venu à l'idée de nous en tenir aux seuls articles thessaliens. On trouvera donc, dans ce CD-Rom, l'ensemble de ses publications, à quelques exceptions près toutefois : d'une part les deux ouvrages qu'il a publiés l'un en 1973 (Gonnoi I et II, A.M. Hakkert, Amsterdam), l'autre en 1995 (L'État thessalien. Aleuas le Roux, les tétrades et les tagoi, CMO 25 - Série épigraphique 2, Maison de l'Orient Méditerranéen, Lyon) et d'autre part les chroniques annuelles « Thessalie » du Bulletin Épigraphique de la Revue des Études Grecques où, depuis 1988, B. Helly (avec J.-C. Decourt, depuis 1998) signale et analyse les différentes publications consacrées à l'histoire de la Thessalie. Quant au choix du support de ce recueil, un CD-Rom et non un livre, il s'est imposé de lui-même compte tenu du goût et de l'intérêt de B. Helly pour les technologies nouvelles.

Dans un premier temps, ce CD-Rom regroupait cent cinq articles, publiés ou rédigés entre 1966 et 2003, mais, compte-tenu du retard apporté à sa réalisation, nous y avons adjoint les articles publiés entre 2003 et 2008, mais sans fichiers PDF. Ces vingt sept articles plus récents sont donc recensés et indexés mais ne sont consultables que dans leur revue de publication. D’autres articles sont actuellement sous presse ou à paraître prochainement, d’autres encore sont en cours de rédaction… On l’aura compris : la « retraite » de Bruno Helly n’a de retraite que le nom et nous envisageons déjà un deuxième recueil, sous une forme à définir (CD-Rom, site Web ou… livre ?), dans quelques années.

Hebraic Political Studies
ISSN: 1565-6640

Hebraic Political Studies is an international, peer-reviewed journal launched in 2005.  The journal is published quarterly by Shalem Press, and edited by Professor Gordon Schochet of Rutgers University and Dr. Arthur Eyffinger of the Huygens Institute in the Netherlands. Hebraic Political Studies publishes articles that explore the political concepts of the Hebrew Bible and rabbinic literature, the significance of reflections on the Hebrew Bible and Judaic sources in the history of ideas, and the role of these sources in the history of the West. Hebraic Political Studies aims to evaluate the place of the Jewish textual tradition, alongside the traditions of Greece and Rome, in political history and the history of political thought.

Les timbres amphoriques de Délos mis en ligne
http://www.amphoralex.org/images/delos/DelosFig2.gif
Nous avons le plaisir d’annoncer le début de la mise en ligne des timbres amphoriques de Délos. Nous commencerons par les 1369 anses timbrées rhodiennes ainsi que par des ensembles de fouilles et des petits groupes (id est en dehors des cnidiens et des rhodiens). La documentation (lecture, photographie, parfois frottis) a été réalisée par les trois soussignés au cours d’un séjour à Délos au mois de septembre 2013. La base de données a été remplie durant l’hiver par Mina Sakrak, étudiante en Master à l’Université Ege d’Izmir, l’identification des matrices a été assurée par Gonca Cankardeş-Şenol, la mise en ligne étant effectuée par Danielle Guiraudios, Informaticienne du CEAlex.


État des lieux. La collection que Virginia Grace avait placée dans des tiroirs de TD 1 à 6789 et que Jean-Yves Empereur avait continué à augmenter en suivant le même système jusqu’au TD 8186 (1)était placée dans des meubles en bois à tiroirs fabriqués ad hoc, suivant un standard mis au point par l’équipe américaine (comme à l’Agora d’Athènes et au Musée gréco-romain d’Alexandrie). Placés dans la partie méridionale de la réserve sud de la cour sud, ces meubles ont été transportés et réarrangés d’une manière admirable par Panagiotis Hatzidakis, Éphore des Cyclades, dans la partie nord de la même réserve. Les anses d’amphores peuvent être aisément localisées et les conditions de travail sont excellentes, avec des espaces de travails aérés donnant sur la cour sud du musée. Nous remercions les Autorités grecques pour leur accueil, en particulier les collaborateurs du KAS à Délos, ainsi que l’École Française d’Athènes en la personne de son Directeur, Alexandre Farnoux, pour les facilités dont nous avons profité tout au long de notre séjour dans l’île.

Le groupe rhodien de Délos, qui occupe 34 tiroirs à ce jour, est ici présenté dans une fiche allégée qui comprend pour chaque anse le n° de TD, éventuellement le n° d’inventaire du musée et/ou de la fouille, le tiroir de rangement, le nom du fabricant ou de l’éponyme, le mois, l’attribut, une transcription de l’inscription, la datation et les éventuelles références de publication, une photographie, éventuellement un frottis, et le numéro de matrice : celui-ci, lié au n° de TD, constitue la véritable identité du timbre selon le système adopté sur le site www.amphoralex.org(2). Un bouton permet de passer de la présente base délienne à la base générale d’Amphoralex où on trouvera la fiche développée de la matrice correspondant au timbre délien traité. Il faut noter que quelques fiches déliennes ne portent pas ce numéro de matrice, quand celle-ci n’a pas été reconnue, lorsqu’il s’agit d’un timbre illisible ou peu lisible. Nous pouvons aussi nous trouver en face d’une nouvelle matrice, tel le TD 6260 où l’on découvre, parfaitement lisible, le nom d’un fabricant inconnu jusqu’à présent, Dazimos (3) (fig. 2). Dans ce cas, nous ajoutons une nouvelle fiche dans la base Amphoralex. À noter aussi le bel ensemble des anses rhodiennes de date basse, fin IIe – début du Ier siècle avant J.-C., un trait particulier à Délos qui correspond à l’histoire du site, avec les quartiers de maisons détruites en 88 et abandonnées en 69 avant J.-C.

New Open Access Serial: AIO Papers (Attic Inscriptions Online)

AIO Papers (Attic Inscriptions Online)
As this is the inaugural publication of AIO Papers, readers may welcome a word of explanation as to the purpose of the series. The primary objective of Attic Inscriptions Online is to make available English translations of Attic inscriptions, based on the most accurate and up-to-date Greek texts. The authoritative publications of the Greek texts are Inscriptiones Graecae vol. I (before 403 BC) and vol. II (403 BC - AD 267), new editions of which appear at infrequent intervals. When an inscription is included in a recently published volume of IG, such as the third edition of IG II (IG II3), the first fascicules of which appeared in 2012, identifying “the most accurate and up-to-date” Greek text can be quite straightforward. In other cases, however, there can more of an issue. It can often be addressed by including one or more references to the review of epigraphical scholarship which is published every year in the Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum (SEG). However, a simple reference to IG, SEG, or occasionally to another publication, is not always sufficient. SEG, for example, records textual proposals with a degree of indiscrimination which may mislead the inexperienced user. In the process of reviewing the textual literature while preparing a translation for AIO translators may see potential for textual improvements which require explanation and justification. The first purpose of AIO Papers, therefore, is to supply a forum in which the texts underlying the translations published in AIO may be clarified.

Second, it is part of AIO’s purpose to communicate Attic inscriptions to students and researchers who may lack the background knowledge, of the languages, culture and institutions of the Greek world in general, and of Athens and Attica in particular, that is needed to understand a translated inscription in its raw state. AIO Papers will publish essays intended to equip the user of AIO with such background knowledge. AIO Papers no. 4, to appear later in 2014, will be the first of this type: a companion to the translations of the inscribed Athenian laws and decrees of 352/1-322/1 BC, texts of which were published in IG II3 1, fascicule 2.

AIO Papers will also publish other papers consistent with the objectives of AIO.
This includes translations of important articles written by scholars in languages other than English but which, in the editor’s opinion, deserve a wider circulation among an Anglophone readership. AIO Papers no. 2 and 3, translations of two papers originally published in Italian by Enrica Culasso Gastaldi, fall into this category.

S. D. Lambert - Notes on Inscriptions of the Marathonian Tetrapolis

This paper accompanies the publication on AIO of the inscriptions of the Marathonian Tetrapolis and is designed primarily to clarify the texts on which the translations are based. It reviews scholarship on the Tetrapolis’ sacrificial calendar (iv BC), published since my new edition, ZPE 130 (2000), 43-70, and makes some fresh observations. It also reviews the other inscriptions attributable the Tetrapolis, IG I3 255, IG II2 2933, IG II2 1243, and an unpublished inscription.

Ancient Locations:Database of Archaeological Sites
http://www.ancientlocations.net/WebImg/HeaderCaptionBright.png

ANCIENT LOCATIONS is my collection of Placemarks of archaeologically interesting locations of the ancient world.
The list is continuously updated and expanded to give anyone with an interest in archaeology and history the possibility to look up the coordinates of relevant sites.
Locations are included if they existed prior to 476 CE in the Old World (end of the West-Roman Empire) and prior to 1492 CE in the New World (re-discovery of the New World).

There are currently 22076 placemark entries in the database. 2428 are shown on Ancient Locations.
There are currently 112 overlay and map entries in the database. 41 are shown on Ancient Locations.
Those entries not shown are either under review or are not assigned to appear on Ancient Locations.

This website has had 129875 visitors since June 6, 2008, which was the day it was set up.

The number of database entries increases when placemarks are imported or manually added, and it decreases when duplicates or invalid enties are removed. Revieweing all the placemarks and ascertaining accurate coordinates is a slow process...
For the task of managing my Placemarks I have implemented a program, a screeshot of which you can see on the right.

Feedback and requests will be appreciated. Feel free to contact me if you need sites coordinates in a specific format or listing.

Personally I am interested in ancient history and formerly in the works of Tolkien (but after a clash with the Tolkien Estate over my maps-website that has lessened). On the internet I use the name "Steven White jr" (after my late father) so I do not have to use my real name and get spammed more than I do already.

Bibliothèque des Écoles françaises d'Athènes et de Rome at Persée
En 1875 Albert Dumont est nommé directeur de l'École Française d'Athènes après avoir été sous-directeur de son ancienne succursale romaine, qui devient alors autonome. Il veut établir l'École en tant que centre d'érudition et de recherche scientifique.

Il fonde pour cela en 1876 l'Institut de Correspondance hellénique, associant savants grecs et français lors de séances publiques, dont une revue, le Bulletin de Correspondance hellénique, concentrera dès 1877 les communications et informations jusque-là éparpillés.

Mais c'est dès 1876 qu'il lance en collaboration avec la jeune École de Rome la collection de la Bibliothèque des Écoles françaises d'Athènes et de Rome (BEFAR) pour publier les thèses et travaux des membres des deux écoles.

http://virgil.vacau.com/wp-content/themes/wikiwp/images/logo.png

THE Virgil Society was founded in 1943, and its first President, the poet T.S. Eliot, delivered What is a Classic? as his Presidential Address in the following year. The purpose of the Society was and remains to unite all those who cherish the central educational tradition of Western Europe. Of that tradition Virgil is the symbol. Membership is open to all those who are in sympathy, whether they read Latin or not.

There are normally five or six meetings each year in London, held on Saturday afternoons in Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU. 

The speakers include both amateur and professional scholars, many of them Virgilians of international repute. Lectures are followed by refreshments, giving an opportunity to meet the speaker and other members of the Society.

Most lectures are published in full in the Proceedings of the Virgil Society, which also include some reviews of works relevant to Virgil. There is also a Newsletter, which appears twice a year.

Aegean Studies
http://www.aegeussociety.org/images/uploads/headers/excavations-and-research.jpg
Aegean Studies accepts papers which present new theoretical approaches and innovative means of data analysis with the aim of illuminating and explaining the prehistory and early Iron Age of the Aegean and its neighbouring areas. Especially welcome are interdisciplinary contributions, as well as studies for the promotion and management of prehistoric culture. The Aegean Book Reviews are part of Aegean Studies.

Texts are accepted in Greek and in English. All papers are submitted to anonymous reviewing. They are initially published electronically on the Aegeus website, and, together with the Aegean Book Reviews, in an annual printed volume of Aegean Studies.

Newsletter of the Association for Coroplastic Studies
The Association for Coroplastic Studies (ACoSt) has developed out of the former Coroplastic Studies Interest Group (CSIG). Originally organized in 2007 under the auspices of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA), the CSIG was one of the 13 Interest Groups of the AIA that normally comprise AIA members. Although membership in the AIA was not a prerequisite for membership in the CSIG, CSIG members were encouraged to join the AIA.

RDF vocabularies for classicists (from the Digital Classicists wiki)

RDF vocabularies for classicists (from the Digital Classicists wiki)
Classicists working on digital projects that involve data are encouraged to link their data to the semantic web. If you are new to the topic, start here (Linked open data).
In thinking about new vocabularies, whether for subjects, predicates, or objects of triples, one should begin with a survey of what already exists. By using one another's vocabularies, we reinforce the interoperability, and therefore utility, of our data. And it saves us the time needed to invent a taxonomy.
Sets of RDF vocabularies tend to fall in two groups: (1) terms for items, persons, concepts, and other resources and (2) terms for the relations that hold between resources. The first group correspond to what many scholars call controlled vocabulary, and they frequently show up as the subjects and objects of triples. The second corresponds to the vocabularies used in ontologies (e.g., RDFS, OWL, SKOS), and frequently show up as the predicates of triples.
