Notes: In 1952 in one wing of the North-West Palace at Nimrud, ancient Kalhu, Max Mallowan excavated an archive room containing royal correspondence from the reigns of Tiglath-pileser III and Sargon II of Assyria. Subjects include Assyrian military activity in Babylonia and on the northern frontier, royal building projects, events on the Phoenician seaboard, and relations with King Midas of Phrygia. Some texts were published in Iraq between 1955 and 1974; the majority have remained unpublished until now. Two hundred and forty-three texts are published here; most are in New Assyrian script and the remainder in New Babylonian. Chapters divide the tablets into the geographical areas they are concerned with. The texts are presented with transliterations, translation and notes. Plates at the end of the book give facsimiles of the tablets.

The great, ninth century palace which Ashurnasirpal II (883-859) built at his new capital of Kalhu/Nimrud has been excavated over 150 years by various expeditions. Each has been rewarded with remarkable antiquities, including the finest ivories found in the ancient Near East, many of which had been brought to Kalhu by the Assyrian kings. The first ivories were discovered by Austen Henry Layard, followed a century later by Max Mallowan, who found superb ivories in Well NN. Neither Layard nor Mallowan was able to empty Well AJ: this was achieved by the Iraqi Department of Antiquities and Heritage, who retrieved arguably the finest pieces found at Nimrud. Finally, an interesting collection of ivory and bone tubes was found by Muzahim Mahmud, the discoverer of the famous Royal Tombs, in Well 4.

This volume publishes for the first time the majority of the ivories found in the Palace by location. These include superb examples carved in Assyria proper and across the Levant from North Syria to Phoenicia and provide an outstanding illustration of the minor arts of the early first millennium. In addition ivories found in the Central Palace of Tiglath-pileser III and fragmentary pieces found in the domestic contexts of the Town Wall Houses are also included.

In addition to a detailed catalogue, this book also aims to assess the present state of ivory studies, discussing the political situation in the Levant, the excavation of the palace, the history of study, the various style-groups of ivories and their possible time and place of production. This volume is the sixth in the Ivories from Nimrud series published by BISI.

About Ivories from Nimrud VII - The Lost Art of the Phoenicians 

Fifty years have passed since the British School of Archaeology in Iraq raised the last ivory from the soil of Fort Shalmaneser. Literally thousands were found, many of which have already been published in Ivories from Nimrud I-V, while VI recorded the outstanding pieces from the North West Palace. Ivories from Nimrud VII, Ivories from Rooms SW11/12 and T10 completes the publication of the assemblages in the Fort, as far as records permit. The ivories of Room SW11/12 are similar in character to those of Room SW37 and probably represent another consignment of booty, while those of T10 in the Throne Room block include pieces from all four traditions, as well as some entirely new ones.

With the primary publication completed, it is now possible to look at these remarkable ivories as a whole rather than studying them by prov­enance, as is discussed in detail in the Commentary. Not surprisingly, it immediately becomes apparent that the majority can be assigned to the Phoenician tradition. There are at least twice as many Phoenician ivo­ries than the other Levantine and Assyrian ivories. They form therefore an incredible archive, recording the lost art of the Phoenicians, long famed as master craftsmen.

The Phoenician ivories can be divided into two; the finest, the Clas­sic Phoenician, often embellished with delicate, jewel-like inlays, and the other examples still clearly Phoenician in style and subject. While the Classic pieces were probably carved in a single centre, possibly Tyre or Sidon, the others would have been carved in a variety of dif­ferent Phoenician centres, located along the Mediterranean seaboard.

Designs on Syrian-Intermediate ivories are versions of some Phoe­nician subjects, employing different proportions and styles. They may represent the art of the recently-arrived Aramaean kingdoms, copying their sophisticated neighbours, while North Syrian ivories are entirely different in subject and character and derive from earlier Hittite traditions.

The ivories found at Nimrud present a unique resource for studying the minor arts of the Levantine world.

Database and Dictionary of Greek Loanwords in Coptic (DDGLC)

Database and Dictionary of Greek Loanwords in Coptic (DDGLC)
The DDGLC project is hosted by the Egyptological Institute -Georg Steindorff- of the University of Leipzig and funded by the Deutsche Forschungs­gemeinschaft as a long-term project with a projected lifespan ranging through 2024. The DDGLC project seeks to produce a systematic, comprehensive and detailed lexicographical compilation and description of Greek loanwords as attested in the entire Coptic corpus through every dialect, each kind of text, and in pre-Coptic Egyptian. The project will thus eventually record 1500 years of contact-induced language change of the Egyptian-Coptic language. The results of the project shall be made available in an online database and in a printed dictionary. The core tool of the DDGLC project is currently a relational database designed to connect linguistic and extra-linguistic data concerning types and tokens of all identifiable Greek loanwords in Coptic.

Open Access Journal: Melilah: Manchester Journal of Jewish Studies

 [First posted in AWOL 16 July 2010, updated 10 June 2014 with the addition of digitization of the 5 original volumes of Melilah (1944-1955) see below]

Melilah: Manchester Journal of Jewish Studies
ISSN 1759-1953
Melilah is an interdisciplinary Open Access journal available in both electronic and book form concerned with Jewish law, history, literature, religion, culture and thought in the ancient, medieval and modern eras. It encourages work from younger scholars at the start of their academic careers as well as contributions from established scholars. The editors are Daniel Langton and Renate Smithuis, supported by a Manchester-based editorial board that includes Philip Alexander, Moshe Behar, Rocco Bernasconi, Jean-Marc Dreyfus, Cathy Gelbin, Alex Samely, and Bill Williams, and an international advisory board that includes Miriam Ben-Zeev, Gad Freudenthal, Moshe Idel, Paul Mendes-Flohr, Shmuel Moreh, Norman Solomon, David Sorkin, Günter Stemberger, Paul Wexler and Eli Yassif.

Melilah was launched in 2004 by Bernard Jackson and Ephraim Nissan under the auspices of the Centre for Jewish Studies at the University of Manchester as the New Series of the journal of the same name founded by Edward Robertson and Meir Wallenstein and published (in Hebrew) by Manchester University Press from 1944 to 1955. Five substantial volumes, each of around two hundred pages, were produced before the series was discontinued. In his editorial foreword to the first edition, Robertson explained that Melilah had been established to promote Jewish scholarship in the face of the threat posed by the Second World War and its aftermath. The title of the journal refers to the ears of corn that are plucked to rub in the hands before the grains can be eaten (Deut. 23:25).

Engramma - La Tradizione Classica nella Memoria Occidentale
ISSN 1826-901X

"Engramma"è la rivista on-line del Centro studi classicA – 'Architettura, civiltà, tradizione del classico'– dell'Università IUAV di Venezia: un laboratorio di ricerche costituito da studiosi e da giovani ricercatori, nato come 'Seminario di tradizione classica' nel marzo 2000, coordinato da Monica Centanni.

Al centro delle ricerche di "Engramma"è la tradizione classica nella cultura occidentale: persistenze, riprese, nuove interpretazioni di forme, temi e motivi dell'arte, dell'architettura e della letteratura antica, nell'età medievale, rinascimentale, moderna e contemporanea.

"Engramma"è una rivista esclusivamente on-line: anche nel campo degli studia humanitatis la pubblicazione in rete si configura come il mezzo e il luogo di verifica delle nuove metodologie di ricerca e come veicolo privilegiato di comunicazione dei risultati.

Nel 2006 "Engramma" ha avuto il riconoscimento del premio E-Content Award.

"Engramma" ha cadenza mensile/bimestrale: tutti i numeri pubblicati dal settembre del 2000 (data di nascita della rivista) sono consultabili in Archivio.

Tutti i contributi pubblicati nella rivista sono indicizzati per autore (Indice per autore).

Sono indicizzati a parte i Testi inediti e rari ovvero: testi mai pubblicati su supporto cartaceo o in rete; testi mai tradotti in lingua italiana; testi editi in formato cartaceo su riviste o in volumi difficilmente reperibili.

I contributi che in numero consistente siano riferibili a temi di ricerca che incrociano gli studi del Centro studi classicA sono raggruppati anche in Indici tematici (consultabili dall'elenco nella colonna a sinistra): Alessandro il Grande, Ara Pacis, Arco onorario romano, Calunnia di Apelle, Hostium Rabies Diruit, Iconologia e Architettura, Internet e Umanesimo, Myths & Movies, Laocoonte, Pubblicità & Tradizione classica, Tempio Malatestiano, Vero falso finto, Aby Warburg e l'Atlante Mnemosyne e Gallerie iconografiche...

The iconographic classification system of the database is based on that of the Warburg Institute Photographic Collection. Please note, however, that the database is not the digital equivalent of the Photographic collection.
The Warburg Institute Iconographic Database is a work-in-progress. The holdings of the Photographic Collection are being digitised per section. The first section to be completed is our selection of photos from astronomical and astrological manuscripts from the Middle Ages and Renaissance (look under 'Magic & Science: Astronomy and Astrology' or search for 'astronomy'). We are currently entering the contents of the Gods & Myths section (some 40,000 photos of subjects from classical mythology), a project generously sponsored by the Dean's Development Fund of the School of Advanced Studies (University of London), which we hope to complete by September 2013.

Auction Catalogs (Beta)

Project Conception

JSTOR is collaborating with the Frick Collection and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in a pilot project funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to understand how auction catalogs can be best preserved for the long-term and made most easily accessible for scholarly use. Auction catalogs are vital for provenance research as well as for the study of art markets and the history of collecting. While scholars are highly interested in them—with the Frick and the Met noting daily use of their catalogs—libraries face a range of challenges with respect to their auction catalog collections, including preservation concerns and shelf space constraints.

About Auction Catalogs

This pilot project will digitize and preserve a small set of English language auction catalogs dating from the 18th through the early 20th century, while examining how best a more extensive effort might be undertaken. The catalogs are vital for research into the provenance and attribution of particular art works, the creation of catalogue raisonnés, as a source for high-quality images, the study of art markets and the history of taste and collecting, and as a window into historical events.  Both the Frick and the Met note that their patrons use their catalogs on a daily basis. While catalogs that date back to the 18th Century tend to be in good condition, thanks to superior paper quality, those from the 19th through early 20th Centuries are deteriorating relatively quickly because of the less expensive acidic paper they were printed on.

Enhancing Discovery

As few catalogs before the mid-20th Century are indexed, the ability to conduct a full-text search would “unlock” content that is currently difficult to find.  Also, an online environment would create new opportunities to associate the catalogs with relevant material.  For instance, descriptions of art objects could be linked to photographs of those objects across a range of resources, such as ARTstor and Google Images. 
For the catalogs that have been indexed, links could be enabled from databases such as SCIPIO (an online union catalog of auction catalog records) to the full text.  Getty’s Provenance Index, which tracks the provenance of art items from 1640-1850, could also link to the relevant catalogs.  Further, in certain subfields, such as African and Oceanic art, catalogs are repositories of significant scholarship and are a necessary supplement to the sparse journal coverage. 

To enhance access to content, JSTOR is developing new tools for digitization, such as capturing handwritten annotations that document the lots’ buyers and prices. New tools linking resources and allowing authorized users to contribute information will provide opportunities to enhance content.

Enigma: Unpuzzling difficult Latin readings in medieval manuscripts

Enigma: Unpuzzling difficult Latin readings in medieval manuscripts
Enigma helps scholars to decipher Latin words which are difficult to read in medieval manuscripts. It is sometimes impossible to decipher all the letters in a word, for various reasons (difficult palaeography, unclear writing, damage to the document, etc.) If you type the letters you can read and add wildcards, Enigma will list the possible Latin forms, drawing from its database of more than 400 000 forms.  
Nota bene: Enigma does NOT solve abbreviations. To do so, you can resort to A. Cappelli's famous dictionary, available online (ed. Milan, 1912, and ed. Leipzig, 1928). If you cannot resolve an abbreviation, replace it by a wildcard in your Enigma query. 
In the field [here], type in the letters that you can read in the medieval document.

The Interactive Nolli Map

[First posted in AWOL 10 July 2009, updated 13 June 2014]

The Interactive Nolli Map

The Nolli Web Site

The Nolli Web Site presents the 1748 Nolli map of Rome as a dynamic, interactive, hands-on tool. The public now has access to cataloged information about the map in both written and graphical form. The map not only provides rich information, but it has the ability to be updated with new data over time to embrace expanding knowledge.

The interactive Nolli Map Web Site intends to:
1) resurrect the integrity of the original Nolli map,
2) greatly enhance the quality and flexibility of its visual display
3) grant easy access for scholars and students alike to a vast body of information.
Conception and Definition of the Project
The 1748 Nolli map of Rome, regarded by scholars and cartographers as one of the most important historical documents of the city, serves to geo-reference a vast body of information to better understand the Eternal City and its key role in shaping Western Civilization. The Nolli Map Web Site introduces students to Rome and the structure of its urban form; it illustrates the evolution of the city over time; and it reveals diverse factors that determined its development. Above all, the Nolli Web Site is intended to provide a vehicle for students and teachers around the world to explore and facilitate creative thought...

Open Access Journal: DIO: The International Journal of Scientific History

DIO: The International Journal of Scientific History
DIO is primarily a journal of scientific history & principle. Most articles are authored by astrononomers, physicists, mathematicians, & classicists — not historians. There are no page charges.
  • Since 1991 inception, has gone without fee to leading scholars & libraries.
  • Publisher & journal cited (1996 May 9) in New York Times frontpage story on his discovery of data blowing open the famous 70-year Richard Byrd North Pole controversy. [Featured in DIO 10 [2000], co-published with the University of Cambridge.]
  • See also New York Times Science 2010/9/8, or fuller version(including link to DIO) on NYT website.
  • Journal is published primarily for universities' and scientific institutions' collections; among subscribers (by written request) are libraries at: Oxford University, Cambridge University, Johns Hopkins, Cal Tech, Cornell University, the universities of Chicago, Toronto, London, Munich, Göttingen, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Tartu, Amsterdam, Liège, Ljubljana, Bologna, Canterbury (NZ); the US Naval Observatory, Royal Astronomical Society (London), Royal Observatory (Scotland), British Museum, Russian State Library, International Center for Theoretical Physics (Trieste).
  • Contributors include world authorities in their respective fields, experts at, e.g., Johns Hopkins University, Cambridge University, University of London.
  • New findings on Mayan eclipse math, Columbus' landfall, and Comet Halley apparitions.
  • Journal first to reveal orbital evidence proving the priority of Paris Observatory's U.Leverrier as Neptune's 1846 discoverer, and overturning history's harsh verdict on J. Challis (Cantab) for missing the planet. On Leverrier's instruction, Neptune was found at Berlin Observatory 1846/9/23 within 1° of his computed spot — still, 1 1/2 centuries later, astronomical history's #1 miracle-event.
  • [DIO 2.3, 4.2, 7.1 & DIO 9.1 [1999], the last cited at Scientific American 2004 Dec p.98 for the key finding that undid England's long-previously-accepted priority claim.]
  • Includes occasional satirical supplement, customarily devoted to an ever-bubbling stream of math-science howlers, published by the most dissent-suppressive History-of-astronomy professorial deities.
  • Entire 1993 volume [DIO vol. 3] devoted to the first (and still the only) critical edition of Tycho's legendary 1004-star catalog.

New Open Access Journal: Dotawo: A Journal of Nubian Studies

Dotawo: A Journal of Nubian Studies
From the Editors

Nubian studies needs a platform in which the old meets the new, in which archaeological, papyrological, and philological research into Meroitic, Old Nubian, Coptic, Greek, and Arabic sources confront current investigations in modern anthropology and ethnography, Nilo-Saharan linguistics, and critical and theoretical approaches present in post-colonial and African studies.

The journal Dotawo: A Journal of Nubian Studies brings these disparate fields together within the same fold, opening a cross-cultural and diachronic field where divergent approaches meet on common soil. Dotawo gives a common home to the past, present, and future of one of the richest areas of research in African studies. It offers a crossroads where papyrus can meet internet, scribes meet critical thinkers, and the promises of growing nations meet the accomplishments of old kingdoms.
We embrace a powerful alternative to the dominant paradigms of academic publishing. We believe in free access to information. Accordingly, we are proud to collaborate with DigitalCommons@Fairfield, an institutional repository of Fairfield University in Connecticut, USA, and with open-access publishing house punctum books. Thanks to these collaborations, every volume of Dotawo will be available both as a free online pdf and in online bookstores.

This first volume of Dotawo is the outcome of a Nubian panel within the Nilo-Saharan Linguistics Colloquium held at the University of Cologne, May 22–4, 2013. Organized by Angelika Jakobi, the Nubian panel was attended both by specialists of the modern Nubian languages and scholars working on medieval Nubia and its languages, particularly Old Nubian. We are indebted to the Fritz Thyssen Foundation at Cologne for generously sponsoring the organization of the Nubian panel and the invitation of the participants.

Since many invited participants from Sudan were unable to get visas due to the shutdown of the German Embassy in Khartoum at that time, the Fritz Thyssen Foundation also funded the organization >of a second venue of specialists on modern Nubian languages. This so-called “Nubian Panel 2” was hosted by the Institute of African & Asian Studies at the University of Khartoum on September 18–19, 2013. The proceedings of that venue will be published in the second volume of Dotawo.

We look forward to planning future volumes with scholars from all fields of Nubian studies. To that end, we invite submissions on all topics and we welcome suggestions for future themed volumes. We currently plan two such themed volumes, for which the calls for papers may be found on the "About this Journal" page.
