ICG - Inscriptiones Christianae Graecae

Ancient inscription
A database of early Christian inscriptions from Asia Minor and Greece
The Inscriptiones Christianae Graecae (ICG), which was initiated in 2008 within the Excellence Cluster 264 Topoi, consists of a digital collection of early Greek Christian inscriptions from Asia Minor and Greece dating from ca. II–VI CE.

Each ICG entry features the original Greek text, a German or English translation, a concise critical apparatus and commentary, images (whenever available), as well as all the relevant information pertaining to dating, ancient and modern provenances, current location, and circumstances of discovery (whenever such information is known).

The collection can be searched by ancient (‘Site’) or modern (‘Holder’) locations, type , or dating, under the ‘Search’ tab.

(Please note that the same inscription may be included in several sub-folders. For example, an inscription approximately dated between 200-500 will be included in three folders: 3. century, 4. century, and 5. century.)

Babylonian Diaries

http://repository.edition-topoi.org/BDIA/ServiceBDIA/Images/BDIA.jpg

Abstract

The astronomical diaries are a genre of Babylonian cuneiform texts, published by Herman Hunger based on earlier work of Abraham Sachs. Their first three volumes have been digitized and converted to a canonical data format. This publication extends the edited texts by astronomical data and structured analysis.

Description

The Babylonian astronomical diaries comprise a group of cuneiform texts which record natural events in time spans from months to a whole year.
The most important among these texts are astronomically relevant observations as well as meteorological observations which mainly relate to changes of wind or rain. In addition, monthly summaries state market prices of key commodities and particularly serious state events such as wars and famines.
The diaries systematically record these events in canonical form and thus enable us to theoretically evaluate the observations. The period we observed ranges from the 6th century BCE to 60 BCE. This group of texts is the only ancient text corpus comprising systematical daily observations over a long period of time. The texts may rightly be considered to mark the empirical peak of ancient astronomy.

Décembre 2020
Francis Joannès a proposéde collaborer à Achemenet dès l’automne 1999, alors quele projet était encore engestation. Lors de la RAI de juillet 2000 réunie au Collège de France, il faisait partie, à mes côtés, des présentateurs d’un avant-projet de site-web, et, plus précisément, de ce que l’on appelaitalors «lacellulebabylonienne». Depuis cette date, lui-même et ses élève sont puissamment développé la base de données de textes babyloniens, qui est aujourd’hui connue et reconnue comme étant la base de référence, comme le montre le nombre de visites/jour.  Le travail réalisé au cours de la période 2000-2020 est impressionnant. Telles que Francis Joannès les présente ici même, les perspectives 2020-2023 ne les ont pas moins. La présence à ses côtés de jeunes chercheurs et de jeunes chercheuses permet de penser que la relève est prête àr elever le défi lancé en l’an 2000, grâce aussi à la collaboration internationale.

Description

Dans le sud de l’Irak, Tell al-Muqayyar a depuis longtemps attiré l’attention en raison de la masse imposante de sa ziggourat. Des fouilles y ont eu lieu depuis 1854, celles de Woolley entre 1922 et 1934 ayant été rendues célèbres par les fameuses tombes royales alors découvertes. Mais le site offre aussi une opportunité unique de reconstituer la vie d’une cité mésopotamienne, grâce à l’extraordinaire abondance des archives découvertes aussi bien dans les grands bâtiments que dans les quartiers d’habitation datant du premier quart du IIe millénaire av. J.-C.

            Dans le présent ouvrage, on a d’abord voulu mieux prendre en compte les 230 textes découverts antérieurement aux fouilles de Woolley (sur un corpus total de 1500) : par Taylor en 1854, puis de façon irrégulière jusqu’en 1918. On en dresse ici le catalogue en reconstituant les différents contextes dans lesquels ces tablettes ont été exhumées.

            Par ailleurs, les tablettes découvertes lors des fouilles de Woolley ont été publiées sans qu’une attention suffisante ait été portée aux données archéologiques. S’appuyant sur le projet « Ur Online », les auteurs sont parvenus à pallier les déficiences de l’enregistrement et à reconstituer de nombreuses archives, qu’il s’agisse d’organismes comme le Ganunmah, ou d’individus comme Dumuzi-gamil ou Ea-naṣir. Mieux définir la nature des échantillons textuels qui nous sont parvenus a permis de corriger certaines généralisations prématurées et de reprendre des  études synthétiques, portant sur des activités comme le prêt ou des groupes comme le clergé du dieu Enki-d’Eridu. Les progrès dans nos connaissances rendent par ailleurs très fructueux le travail de collation, sur les originaux ou sur photos : sur cette base, plus d’une centaine de textes sont ici édités, dont sept publiés pour la première fois.

            On doit enfin tenir compte des abondantes découvertes épigraphiques effectuées lors des trois campagnes de fouilles menées entre 2015 et 2019 sur le site de Tell al-Muqayyar sous la direction d’E. Stone. Elles ont directement inspiré certaines études du présent recueil, notamment à propos des tablettes trou­vées dans des caveaux funéraires. Elles ont également contribué à remettre en cause la soi-disant faible attestation de la présence babylonienne pendant vingt-cinq ans, avant que la ville d’Ur ne soit largement abandonnée en l’an 12 de Samsu-iluna.

            C’est dans cet esprit que les quinze contributions qui constituent le présent volume ont été préparées dans le cadre du projet « EcritUr » financé par l’ANR pour 36 mois depuis le 1er octobre 2017. Regroupées en six parties, elles sont suivies d’un gros appareil d’index et de résumés en français et en anglais.

Hadashot Arkheologiyot - Excavations and Survey in Israel
ISSN: 1565-5334
http://www.hadashot-esi.org.il/images/JOURNAL1_01eng.jpg
Hadashot Arkheologiyot – Excavations and Surveys in Israel (HA-ESI) has been published in print since 1961 by the Israel Department of Antiquities and Museums (IDAM) and since 1990 by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA). The journal contains preliminary reports of excavations and surveys in Israel, as well as final reports of small-scale excavations and surveys; it also publishes archaeological finds recorded during inspection activities. The journal is bilingual, Hebrew and English; reports submitted in English are translated into Hebrew and vice versa.
 The e-journal www.hadashot-esi.org.il is the digital format of HA-ESI, replacing the printed version. The first digital publication of the journal (No. 116, 2004) is a reflection of the last printed volume. From 2005 onward, the journal will be published on-line only – each year will receive a volume number, continuing the numbering of the printed journal (e.g., No. 117 = 2005, No. 118 = 2006, etc.). The e-journal is an unlimited data base of archeological reports, including photographs, maps, plans and pottery figures. The reports can be searched by keywords or by means of an interactive map. The results of both types of searches can be printed.
 The reports submitted to the e-journal will be edited in the same manner as in the printed journal (see Guide to Contributors). They will be published on-line with the completion of their editing and translation, and will be ascribed to a specific issue according to the year of publication (issue no. = year of publication). A final excavation report is marked with as asterix*. Announcements of new publications will appear on the Home Page of the e-journal. Prints of reports are available from the web site for personal and educational use only.

The database Cretan Institutional Inscriptions was created by Irene Vagionakis as part of her PhD research project at the University of Venice Ca’ Foscari (2016-2019; supervisors: Claudia Antonetti and Gabriel Bodard). The database, built by using the EpiDoc Front-End Services (EFES) platform, collects the EpiDoc editions of 600 inscriptions shedding light on the institutions of the political entities of Crete from the VII to the I century BC.

EpiDoc Front-End Services (EFES) is a free, easy to use, highly customisable platform for the online publication of ancient texts in EpiDoc XML. EFES allows the creation of multiple indices, search and browse interface, geographical visualisation, and integration with linked open data. EFES is a fork of Kiln, an open source multi-platform framework for building and deploying complex websites whose source content is primarily in XML.

From Bactria to Taxila: A database of resources on Hellenistic and Imperial Central Asian studies
By Antoine Simonin
http://frombactriatotaxila.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/nouvelle-image-bitmap8.jpg

NOTE: Articles, sources and reviews added now every three days since March 2013.

The web is a fantastic tool, whose applications and implications are progressing at an exponential rate. So are the studies on Hellenistic and Imperial Central Asia, that really have begun to develop in the 70s and are increasing since the last twenty years. Websites dealing with ancient Central Asia exist, as well as digitized version of books, articles and reviews on the subject. But, even at the dawn of the “semantic web”, they are dispatched and thinly spread, the consequences being a great difficulty for everyone to find them and, often, the frustration to find digitized sources in a later stage, way after it would be needed.

The work presented here is made of the will to resolve this problem. This blog will mostly function like a portal: internet ressources will be listed in a large bibliography, with incorporated links to their current location on the web. This site will not host books neither articles. In this way, if an author wants to remove its work from the net, he won’t have to pay attention of this website. It’s also a way to thank those authors for their work, by repercuting in the statistics of their homepage the amount of views that can bring our website.

The main focus of the works presented here is what lays between Eastern Iranian plateau to the West and the Ganges Valley to the East, the Russian steppes to the North and the Indian Ocean to the South. This area don’t show any geographical unity, but shall be taken as one entity to understand what happened during Hellenistic and Imperial times in Antiquity. The chronological timeframe will mostly be from the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC to the Sassanian uprising in 224 AD.

Most of the work will come from databases like Persee, Encyclopaedia Iranica Online or homepage of specialists. Partially available work like in GoogleBooks are also now being added, with the google-g-logo-2012 symbol next to.

    The Hellenistic Central Asia Research Network (HCARN) is an international association of scholars conducting research on Central Asia, broadly defined, from the late Iron Age to the Kushan Period.*  HCARN was formed in 2016 and holds regular conferences; Calls for Papers are posted on this site.  There is no formal membership or subscription, and we welcome all with an interest in the field.  We aim to promote collaboration and debate between archaeologists, linguists and historians of Central Asia, whatever their career stage or nationality.

    The HCARN Committee is composed of past and future organisers of HCARN conferences:

    • Professor Rachel Mairs, University of Reading (HCARN I 2016, Reading) r.mairs@reading.ac.uk

    * The period between the death of Alexander the Great and the rise of the Roman Empire  is commonly referred to as the ‘Hellenistic Period’ with reference to the Mediterranean world.  In applying the term ‘Hellenistic’ to Central Asia, we make no assumptions about the primacy or otherwise of Greeks and Greek culture, but use the term chronologically, as a catch-all for a fascinating and especially intensive period of cultural interaction across the region from the Iranian Plateau to the Indus, and from the steppe to the Indian Ocean.

    Open Access Journal: ‘Atiqot

     [First posted 10/31/10, most recently updated 15 January 2021]

    ‘Atiqot 
    [Open Access after registration]
    http://www.atiqot.org.il/Images/tl1.jpg
    'Atiqot is the refereed journal of the Israel Antiquities Authority. It is published four times a year. The contents of the printed version is uploaded to the e-journal website. No changes are made to articles post-publication. The printed journal is available via the IAA website.

    For details on how to submit, see our Guide to Contributors.

    Range of Topics.‘Atiqot covers a large chronological span, from prehistory up to the Ottoman period. Excavations are studied from various aspects and disciplines—often the result of the close interaction between researchers of the IAA and outside specialists. Thus, a report should include, in addition to the stratigraphic analysis, comprehensive treatments of the archaeological data, including studies of the various groups of finds, such as ceramics, glass, stone and metal objects, coins, jewelry, textiles, etc., as well as the geological, botanical, faunal and anthropological evidence. Laboratory analyses, such as petrography, radiocarbon dating and metallurgy, should be included where relevant.

    The archaeological data published in ‘Atiqot are not confined to a specific range of periods or topics, but to a geographical area—the Land of Israel—which has been influenced by almost every ancient culture that existed in the Levant. The journal thus presents comprehensive research on the region and its connections with the neighboring countries. The publication is devoted to final reports and shorter articles, although occasionally a volume is dedicated to a particular topic (e.g., burial caves, agricultural installations), period (e.g., prehistoric, Islamic) or site (e.g., Acre, Jerusalem).

    Excavation Reports. The papers published in ‘Atiqot are primarily the result of salvage excavations conducted by the IAA. Their results are sometimes unexpectedly important, filling in gaps that could not be understood by localized studies of the larger tells. ‘Atiqot is one of the few vehicles for imparting this important data and therefore a primary asset to any scholar in archaeology.

    Bilingual Journal. The journal is bilingual, publishing articles in English or Hebrew; all Hebrew reports are accompanied by English summaries keyed to illustrations in the main text.

      Text Alignment Network

      0
      0
      The Text Alignment Network (TAN) is a suite of highly regulated XML formats designed to maximize the syntactic and semantic interoperability of texts, annotations, and language resources.
      TAN is particularly suited to aligning texts with multiple versions (copies, translations, paraphrases), and to annotating quotations, translation clusters (word-to-word), and lexicomorphological features. Simple, modular, and networked, the TAN format allows users, working independently and collaboratively, to find, create, edit, study, align, and share their texts and annotations. The extensive validation rules are integrated into a library of functions that definitively interpret the format and provide a foundation for third-party tools and applications.
      Although expressive of scholarly nuance and complexity, the TAN format has been designed to benefit everyone, scholars and non-scholars alike, and can be used broadly for reading, teaching, publishing, research, analysis, and language learning.

      Each output file represents a derivative use of the TAN format. Behind it lies a handful of unchanged, relatively simple XML files. The output is intended as proof-of-concept, not as polished product, illustrative of how TAN-compliant files can be manipulated for publishing, studying, creating, and editing.
      All sample output contains known errors in content, structure, styling, and Javascript. Files may be added, renamed, or deleted at any time. If the appearance looks irregular, trying using a different browser.

      The Glaser Collection :3D-Digitizing of Rare Ancient South Arabian Squeezes, 19th Century Glaser Collection

       [First posted in AWOL 5 August 2017, updated 16 January 2021]

      The Glaser Collection

       
      The collection of the Austrian scholar and explorer Eduard Glaser (1855-1908) was acquired in 1910 by the Academy of Sciences in Vienna. The epigrapher and specialist in the South-Arabian language brought back a huge amount of medieval Arabic manuscripts, and stone inscriptions, nowadays spread over Europe, as well as squeezes of the non-transportable ones, photographs, glass-negatives, diaries, and notes of historical importance. The Academy owns the latter precious documents of the 1880s and 1890s and within this project they are going to be digitally preserved and partly scientifically analyzed. Moreover, the international scholarly community – most of the researchers in this field are abroad – could participate and benefit from the digital items, either to download in high quality or to contribute their results of research. They will mark one further step towards the integration of the History and Culture of South Arabia within the field of ancient Near Eastern studies and will help to give a fuller historical background from the early first millennium BCE till the rise of Islam. This applies, above all, to the glass negatives and photographs with historical significance and the five unexplored diaries with their ethnological, historical and linguistic documentation. Another part will be the development of a linguistic text analyzing tool KALAM reloaded for the inscriptions written in closely related Semitic languages like Sabaic, Qatabānic, Minaic/Madhābian, and Ḥaḍramitic language that could help to better resolve illegible passages/letters, while giving the full grammatical information with translation. All these items, catalogued and searchable in a web-application, are going to be visualized in a geographical map-search.

      scannerThe Scanning Process (by Moises Hernandez-Cordero)

      The Structured from Motion method (SfM) has been selected for the scans of both sides of the 2155 squeezes left from the first project “Pilot-3D-Digitizing of Rare Ancient South Arabian Squeezes, 19th Century Glaser Collection”. This technique has been chosen after evaluating other possibilities (pulse based laser scanner, structured light scanner, arm based 3D scanners and Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI)). Time, accuracy and project resources are among the important elements that make this technique the best for the two-year period of the project. SfM is well known for the accuracy and good quality of the textures that can be achieved.

      The workflow will use a photo tent for capturing of the data together with the markers for an accurate geometry. These elements will enhance accuracy, colour management and light parameters during the processing of the images. The Canon EOS5D Mark III with the Canon 50 mm lens is the camera used to capture the images. Agisoft Photoscan Pro 1.3.4 is the software selected to process the data and to create the 3D models with texture (obj format). Then, these will be exported on the 3D open source Meshlab 2016 to create an additional file (analyse file.png) with a filter (radiance scaling). At the end of the process, the files will have three important qualities of the squeezes collection, geometry, texture and an image file highlighting the most important features of the squeeze itself.

      Dodona Online(DOL): Towards a New Edition of the lamellae of the Oracle at Dodona
      AMI 1724_bis.jpg
      Dodona Online (DOL) is a project whose main aim is to edit online all the oracular questions from Dodona. It will first include the 4216 new lamellae from the Evangelidis’ excavations, whose edition, which was long prepared by late researchers I. Vokotopoulou, S. Dakaris and A.-Ph. Christidis, was eventually published in 2013, thanks to the devoted efforts of S. Tselikas. Montreal is the epicentre of the project, but the team itself is scattered all over the world, mainly in Europe. It gathers the most eminent scholars of the Dodonaean field, Greek epigraphy, and Greek religion. Dodona online will eventually be hosted by the Perseus Digital Library, which will allow a worldwide, quick, free, and open access to the material.

      Overview of the Minerva Center for the Relations between Israel and Aram in Biblical Times (RIAB)

      Co-directed by Prof. Aren M. Maeir (BIU) and Prof. Angelika Berlejung (University of Leipzig)

      Introduction:

      The cultures of Israel and of Aram are two of the most important cultures of the ancient eastern Mediterranean (and the ancient world in general), not only in the fact that they played crucial roles during early periods (and are extensively portrayed in the biblical text), but as they are among the few cultures of antiquity (not only in the Levant but in the entire world) whose cultural patrimony exists until today. As it is clear that these two cultures were intimately connected throughout major periods of their development, the study of the character and extent of the interconnections and mutual influences between these two cultures is of deep interest.

      To this end, the Minerva Foundation, of the German Max Planck Society, has awarded a Minerva Center, entitled “The Relations between Israel and Aram in Biblical Times (RIAB)” to Prof. Aren M. Maeir of Bar-Ilan University and Prof. Angelika Berlejung from the University of Leipzig (who will serve as co-directors of the center). The center will include scholars from Bar-Ilan University (Prof. Esti Eshel, Dr. Yigal Levin and Dr. Leeor Gottlieb), the University of Leipzig (Prof. Andreas Schuele, Prof. Michael Streck, Prof. Marco Frenschkowski and Dr. Takaoshi Oshima), Würzburg University (Prof. Guenther Vittmann), the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Dr. Nili Wazana and Dr. Nava Panitz-Cohen) and Tel Aviv University (Dr. Omer Sergi).
