The Nile Delta as a centre of cultural interactions with Upper Egypt and the Southern Levant in 4th millennium BC

Open Access Publications of the project “The Nile Delta as a centre of cultural interactions with Upper Egypt and the Southern Levant in 4th millennium BC”

The Nile Delta as a centre of cultural interactions between Upper Egypt and the Southern Levant in 4th millennium BC, edited by A. Mączyńska, Studies in African Archaeology, vol. 13, Poznań, 2014.
This volume is part of and concludes the project entitled The Nile Delta as a centre of cultural interactions between Upper Egypt and the Southern Levant in 4th millennium BC. It contains a collection of papers by researchers involved in investigating the development of the Nile Delta in the Pre- and Protodynastic Periods. Nearly all of these papers were presented at the same-titled conference held on June 21 and 22, 2013 in the Archeological Museum in Poznań, Poland. Although originally planned as a workshop presenting the results of research carried out as part of the project, the conference eventually evolved into a major event and became an opportunity to meet and talk about the role of Delta communities in the development of the Egyptian civilization in the 4th millennium BC, with particular emphasis on their relations with neighboring areas, i.e. the Southern Levant and Upper Egypt. The conference was attended both by project partners and by invited guests whose papers made an excellent addition to the main topic of the event. Only the paper by Steven Rosen was presented at a workshop called Imports during the Naqada Period: Investigating Two Sides of a Phenomenon organized by W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem on November 26, 2012. The main goal of the workshop was to meet Israeli archeologists, who keep finding Egyptian imports on various sites. An important element of the workshop was the opportunity to discuss Egyptian-Levantine relationships not only from the Egyptian, but also from the Levantine perspective. The article by Steven Rosen is a fine example here.
Lower Egyptian Communities and Their Interactions with Southern Levant in the 4th Millennium BC, A. Mączyńska, Studies in African Archaeology, vol. 12, Poznań, 2013.
This monograph is based on my doctoral dissertation written under the supervision of professor Lech Krzyżaniak and defended in the fall of 2004. Although many people encouraged me to publish the dissertation and the Council of the Faculty of History at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland, issued a positive opinion on the matter, I did not manage to have my thesis printed. Some of the issues addressed there were presented at conferences and published as research papers. In May 2011 I received a grant to finance a 3-year project entitled The Nile Delta as a centre of cultural interactions between Upper Egypt and South Levant in 4th millennium B.C. The grant was part of the Parent Bridge program financed by the Foundation for Polish Science, was aimed at providing assistance to young parents-researchers returning to research work after a parenting break. Publishing my doctoral dissertation was originally one of the project tasks. However, I well realized that archeological evidence and its interpretation had changed (sometimes significantly) after 2004. Likewise, my own views and knowledge had evolved during those years. It was thus only natural to update the dissertation and to revise my views presented back in 2004. As a result, this monograph is not merely an English translation of the dissertation defended nearly 10 years ago, but also addresses new discoveries from the Nile Delta and Southern Levant. In addition, it presents my current views on the interactions between the Delta, Upper Egypt and Canaan, reflecting the last two years of intensive research.
Tellel-FarkhaI. Excavations 1998-2011, Dr Marek Chłodnicki, Prof. Krzysztof M. Ciałowicz and Dr Agnieszka Mączyńska, eds. (Poznań-Kraków, ISBN 978-83-60109)
[This] is the first comprehensive scientific publication of one of the most important archaeological sites in Egypt which constantly brings new information concerning the creation of the united Egyptian state. 
The book, published by thePoznańArchaeologicalMuseum,  presents major archaeological discoveries made by the Polish Archaeological Expedition to the Eastern Nile Delta in the years 1998-2011, over 14 archaeological seasons. Its 460 colour pages, organised in 27 chapters, contain not just the artefacts found at the site, but also their wider interpretation complemented with the results of specialised analyses.
The publication was prepared as part of the promotion of the project entitled “The Nile Delta as a centre of cultural exchange between the Upper Egypt and the south Levantin the 4th millennium B.C.”, financed by the Foundation for Polish Science under the Pomost-Powroty Programme.
The volume is not meant for sale. The whole circulation will be distributed among scholars studying Egyptian archaeology, and will be dispatched to libraries at home and abroad with which the Library of the Poznań Archaeologica lMuseumhas an exchange programme.

A check list of periodicals for classical studies and related disciplines
Compiled by Yang Wang.
Princeton : Princeton University Library, Cataloging Division, 2008.
The present checklists, alphabetical listings of full titles (List A) and of title abbreviations (List B), contain key bibliographical, holding and shelving information of periodicals for Classical Studies and related disciplines in the PUL collection.  Each entry of the list has three components:
1) Full title: The full title of each periodical is given, in some cases, including variant title(s), parallel title(s) in another language, or, where applicable, followed by a note to indicate title change.
2) Abbreviated title: Title abbreviations chiefly follow the most recent practices of l'Année philologique. Occasionally, due to common usage, two or more alternative abbreviations are recorded in a single entry. If a journal or series is also available for online access, it is marked Online in the field.
Most periodicals and monographic series in this list are shelved in Firestone and their call numbers are given with no further location designation.  If an item is shelved elsewhere, a location designation is given in brackets immediately after its call number (e.g., N3 .A18 (Marquand Library)).
Volume designations below each call number are the current holdings in the Library; in most cases, these are bound volumes. Recently published issues of a journal are usually shelved, unbound, in the Periodical Reading Room, unless otherwise indicated (e.g., Classics Study Room). For more information on recent issues of a journal, availability of a particular bound volume (i.e., whether it is checked out by a user), please check the online catalog for most current holding/shelving status of the title.
Where applicable, title changes are briefly described in the full title column and in the call number column. In most cases, the call number remains the same.

AGER VELEIAS: Rassegna di storia, civiltà e tradizione classiche
In più di trent'anni di passione veleiate vissuta nell'Università di Parma all'ombra della cattedra di Storia Romana, Nicola Criniti e i suoi generosi collaboratori del Gruppo di Ricerca Veleiate [GRV] hanno organizzato una ricca "Raccolta Veleiate" di testi a stampa, ben nota a studiosi italiani e stranieri; hanno prodotto una decina di tesi di laurea e quasi un centinaio di saggi, offrendo altresì un efficace e variegato biglietto da visita nei recenti volumi collettanei parmensi "Ager Veleias". Tradizione, società e territorio sull'Appennino Piacentino [2003: ora in rete, www.veleia.it], "Res publica Veleiatium". Veleia, tra passato e futuro [2006: in quinta edizione nel 2009], "Veleiates". Uomini, luoghi e "memoriae" dell'Appennino piacentino-parmense [2007], tutti curati da Nicola Criniti.


Dal 2005 / 2006, obbedendo alle leggi della comunicazione ..., si sono impegnati – grazie anche all'intervento di Luca Lanza e Francesco Bergamaschi prima, di Daniele Fava e di Immagica di Parma poi – nell'apertura e sviluppo del laboratorio informatico multifunzionale e multidisciplinare AGER VELEIAS (www.veleia.it: già Tveleia.unipr.it) Te, al suo interno, dell'omonima rassegna periodica "Ager Veleias", che ormai si è felicemente aperta a tutta la romanità e alla sua fortuna moderna / contemporanea (si veda nel sito l'Indice Generale). Un bel quadro recente ne ha dato Daniele Fava nella sua tesi «VELEIA 1760 – 2010: dal "Grand Tour" a Internet. 250 anni di "peregrinationes" al sito di Veleia, discussa con me a Parma, nell'estate 2010...

APD - The Arabic Papyrology Database
http://orientw.uzh.ch:8080/apd/logo.gif

The Arabic Papyrology Database is a tool enabling you to access the editions of Arabic documents written on different material such as papyrus, parchment or paper. Those productive editions are an often unraised treasure for almost every aspect of Islamic history up to the 16th c. A.D.
The entire texts of all documents in stock (currently 1662 out of about 2,500) are searchable on different layers and with variant readings within the tool 'Documents'. The tool 'Search' allows to investigate linguistic peculiarities. Each document is also provided with its metadata, amongst others place and date of origin or its genre as for instance a contract of lease or a petition.
The Arabic Papyrology Database is the first electronic compilation of Arabic papyri. It is a non-commercial project running under the patronage of the International Society for Arabic Papyrology (ISAP) and a partner of the Trismegistos metadata project of Greek, Demotic, Coptic, Arabic, etc. documents. Access is free via the Internet.

Bilddatenbank des Gustaf-Dalman-Institutes
http://greif.uni-greifswald.de/webgate_dalman/template/webgate_1/fe//img/panorama.jpg
In Greifswald beherbergt die Theologische Fakultät eine europaweit einmalige Sammlung: Das Gustaf-Dalman-Institut dokumentiert das von Bauern und Hirten geprägte Palästina, wie es heute nicht mehr existiert. Schon vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg trug der deutsche Theologe Gustaf Dalman (1855-1941) zusammen, was für ihn das Land der Bibel ausmachte. So verfügt das Institut über Gesteins- und Pflanzenproben, Haus- und Ackergeräte, Keramiken, archäologische Kleinfunde, Land- und Reliefkarten, rund 15.000 historische Fotografien und eine Bibliothek mit rund 5.000 Bänden – darunter seltene Drucke des 16. Jahrhunderts. Was sonst Ethnologen, Archäologen, Geographen, Theologen, Botaniker und Mineralogen je für sich betrachten, hat Dalman in Greifswald zu einem Universalbild zusammengefügt. Weltweit profitieren Wissenschaftler heute von dieser Sammlung.
Die Bilddatenbank enthält 3195 Diapositive. Die Signaturen setzen sich aus einem Buchstaben (A-M) und einer römischen Zahl (I-XX) zusammen. Die Signaturen A I - H XVI sind nach Orten geordnet, H XVII - M XVII nach Themen, M XVIII - M XX nach Kultur und Diverses.

Attic Inscriptions Online
 https://www.atticinscriptions.com/live/static/img/AIO_logo.png
Welcome to Attic Inscriptions Online (AIO), a website designed to make available the inscriptions of ancient Athens and Attica in English translation.

Background

Inscriptions on stone are the most important documentary source for the history of the ancient city of Athens and its surrounding region, Attica. Dating from the 7th century BC through to the end of antiquity, Greek texts are available to scholars in Inscriptiones Graecae (IG) I (up to 403/2 BC) and II (after 403/2 BC) (website), updated annually by the Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum (SEG) (website), and in the Packard Humanities Institute (PHI) Greek Inscriptions website. However, until now, very few of the inscriptions have been available in English translation, whether in print, or online. This site is intended to rectify this situation, beginning in 2012 with the inscribed laws and decrees of Athens, 352/1-322/1 BC, of which new texts have recently been published as IG II3 1, 292-572.

Launch of the IconA Databases (via Aegeanet) 
I am pleased to announce that I have given permission to CMS Heidelberg to host my IconA Databases on the CMS Website and I thank Professor Diamantis Panagiotopoulos and Dr Maria Anastasiadou for all their support in arranging the Hosting and the Launch of the Databases on Friday 2 May at the CMS Institute at Heidelberg University. The two Databases are now feely available on the Web and are subject only to the usual protocol of acknowledging the source of the information in any research or publications that use the Databases, in this case the CMS and IconAegean. IconAegean is the name of the Project and these two Databases are called 
IconAData and IconADict. Interested scholars may access them through the CMSWebsite http://www.uni-heidelberg.de/fakultaeten/philosophie/zaw/cms/index.html by going to the list of entries on the left and clicking on IconA Databases and when the two names IconAData and IconADict appear click on one name and  enter the Database as Guest, then repeat for the other Database. It is useful  for Users to have both Databases on view side by side so they can refer across  them and in order to facilitate searching. IconAData holds 1000 seal designs especially chosen to illustrate the range of  Aegean seal iconography and may be searched by Keywords across any of the Database Fields. Each seal design is illustrated. IconADict holds the Dictionary of the 590 iconographic terms which describe the seal designs and these are illustrated and defined and can be used as the Keyword to search on the Fields in the IconAData Database. There are also 
entries which gloss the CMS terms and Database explanations to help the User. My very best wishes as you begin to use the Databases, Enjoy!

Iryan Moftah Collection of Coptic Books and Manuscripts
Letters, Essays, and Sermons by Saint Gregory Nazianzus
This 18th-century manuscript is a collection of letters, essays, and sermons by Saint Gregory Nazianzus (died circa 389). The manuscript is thought to be the first Arabic translation from the original Greek and has not yet been edited or published. It is the second volume of a two-volume work. Gregory of Nazianzus, also known as Gregory the Theologian, is recognized as a Father of the Church in both the Eastern and Western traditions. He was born in Cappadocia (eastern Anatolia), where he spent much of his life. He was a ...

Pentateuch
This manuscript is an Arabic translation of the first five books of the Old Testament (Pentateuch), which is called on the first leaf, “The Holy Torah.” The book contains little information about its production other than a note at the end indicating that it is of Coptic origin. Framed cruciform patterns appear at the top of the first leaf and are the only illustrations in the work. There are chapter and verse headings in red as well as guidewords and occasional directions for recitation during fasts and feasts. At the ...

Letters, Pedagogical Teachings, and Sayings of Saint Anthony of Egypt
This manuscript opens with the 20 letters “to the sons who follow his [Anthony’s] gentle path…and prayers to keep us from Satan’s example.” The letters are for the most part short, many not exceeding five folios. According to an introductory note, they are addressed to both men and women. The work is in a bold but relaxed hand. Each letter or other significant section is set off in red. There are no contemporary marginal glosses, but comments and corrections (some in English) in pencil were made by ...

Historical Books of the Old Testament
This Biblical manuscript contains portions of the Old Testament historical books of Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings. The volume is incomplete at the beginning and end. The scribe, whose name might have appeared in the missing colophon, is unknown. The copying was done in 1748 (Joshua) and 1749 (Second Kings). There are guide words but no page numbers. Chapters are inconsistently marked. The work is carefully written but appears to have received little use, as indicated by the lack of the fore-edge smudging observed in some other manuscripts in the ...

The Sublime Pearl in the Sacrament of the Eucharist
This manuscript volume contains two drafts of a work on the Eucharistic sacrament (Arabic, sirr al-‘Afkharistiya). The sacrament is revered in many Christian churches, including the Coptic Orthodox Church, as the transformation of bread and wine into the body and blood of Jesus Christ. It is the central event of every mass in the Orthodox tradition and in many Western denominations. The volume contains two versions of the same essay. Authorship is ascribed to Iryan Moftah (1826–86), even though his name does not appear anywhere in the notebook ...

Reconciling Mercy with Justice
This manuscript is a notebook containing the draft of a sermon or essay by Coptic thinker and teacher Iryan Moftah (1826–86) on the theme of the reconciliation of justice with mercy. The author’s notes are in a careful Ruqah script on unlined commercial notebook paper with holes punched for insertion into a binder. The main text is heavily annotated with Biblical citations and textual emendations in the margins. Some pages are missing, as are the last pages of the volume. The author is not named in the text ...

Litanies of the Virgin Mary
This Arabic manuscript contains two works pertaining to the Virgin Mary, who is recognized as the mother of Jesus Christ in both Christian and Muslim scriptures. The first manuscript is a personal prayer to the Virgin, to be recited daily for spiritual benefit. It includes a review of Mary’s place in the life of Jesus as recounted in the New Testament, beginning with the Archangel Gabriel’s announcement of the birth of Jesus and ending with Mary’s presence at the crucifixion. The second manuscript is a litany, or ...

Coptic Language Primer
This manuscript is a basic introduction to the alphabet, pronunciation, and grammar of the Bohairic dialect of the Coptic language written for Arabic speakers by Iryan Moftah (1826–86). It is copied in a commercial notebook. The author divides each page vertically with text in Coptic script on the left and Arabic translation or explanation on the right. The manuscript is written in a bold black ink. Title and author are given on a label pasted on the front cover. The work is undated, but it is most likely from ...

Coptic Grammar
This manuscript consists of a portion of a Coptic primer by Iryan Moftah (1826–86). It lists useful phrases, with the Coptic in the left column and the Arabic on the right. Moftah avoids explanation of linguistic complexities or conjugations. This, along with the simple, everyday phrases, leads to the conclusion that the book is aimed at schoolchildren or young seminarians rather than advanced learners. Although the textbook is aimed at Arabic speakers, there is no assumption that students are acquainted with the complexities of classical Arabic grammar. There are ...

Untitled Notebook of Coptic-language Lessons
This manuscript contains a Coptic grammar and vocabulary notes compiled by Father Girgis Murqus of Akhmīm, Upper Egypt. It includes lists of common phrases in Coptic with Arabic translation.  It probably was used by the author as a teaching guide for beginning Coptic classes. It is similar to the primers of Iryan Moftah (1826–86), a prominent teacher of Coptic and linguistic reformer, but it also includes verb exercises. The notebook is missing several pages and the binding is in poor condition. Arabic words are occasionally misspelled. The exact date ...

Calculating Coptic Orthdox Easter
This manuscript deals with the calculation of Easter Sunday according to the Coptic calendar. Fixing this date each year governs much of the liturgical and devotional life of the Coptic Orthodox Church. The Coptic calendar begins in 284 AD, which is called Anno Martyrum (AM), or Year of the Martyrs. The first folio contains a table of the four seasons with their corresponding Coptic months and zodiacal signs. The following pages, some of which are torn or badly stained, provide instructions for calculating the movement of the moon and reconciling ...

Towards Salvation through Fervent Prayer
This manuscript of devotions attributed to Butrus al-Sadamanti appears to have been copied in the 19th century by an anonymous scribe. The manuscript includes a 40-page introduction to the devotions. The title is not found in the work itself, but is noted on the inside front cover. The binding is small and tight and the text block is generally sound except for the last pages, which are missing. Little is known of the life of the presumed author, named in the incipit as anba (bishop) and qiddis (saint) Butrus al-Sadamanti ...
