McGill University Monographs in Classical Archaeology and History is a series intended for the publication of monographs in the fields of Greek and Roman Archaeology. It may also include monographs concerning Greek and Roman History when they present results acquired directly and not just incidentally from archaeological fieldwork. The keynote of the series is thus archaeological field research, both excavation and topographical study. The series may also house studies in Greek and Latin Epigraphy since many of the additions in these fields come from the results of archaeological fieldwork.
Further Studies on Boiotian Inscriptions
In Epigraphica Boeotica II John Fossey continues to treat results of his nearly 50 years of research into the archaeology and inscriptions of Ancient Boiotia (Epigraphica Boeotica I, Amsterdam, 1991). The first part of the volume discusses the relations between Boiotia and other parts of the Greek world as seen in acts of proxenia and agonistic victor lists. After a section on dedications both religious and civic, there follows a series of studies of ancient tombstones, many of them spolia used in more recent buildings, with prosopographic and onomastic commentary on the names contained in them. Discussion throughout features letter forms and one specific example of this is an epigramme by the Roman philhellene emperor Hadrianus. An unusual rupestral text concludes the volume.
Following on from the author's Ancient Topography of Eastern Phokis (1986) and Topography and Population of Ancient Boiotia (1988) this monograph completes his studies of settlement in antiquity of Eastern Central Greece (excluding Attike and Megaris). The structure of the book is exactly the same as the parallel work on Eastern Phokis: an account of the physical geography (and natural economy) of the area is followed by a detailed catalogue of 22 sites in which location, bibliography, and structural remains are discussed, surface finds and inscriptions are listed, and the possible identifications with ancient names are elaborated; after these presentations of the raw data, analytical sections on settlement development and organisation, on fortifications, and on cults follow. Several appendices treat of connex subjects or list various testimonia, ancient and modern, and the work concludes with indices of ancient texts, placenames and general subjects.
Zoïtopoúlou, E.P. & Fossey, J.M. Les lampes gréco-romaines. 1992
This catalogue raisonné presents the 84 Greek and Roman lamps of the McGill collection. Much of the collection derives from North Africa and the Levant and thus is particularly representative of Palestinian, Egyptian, Roman and Byzantine types, but various examples from parts of Europe provide examples of earlier Greek and Italian types. The lamps are presented in chronological and geographic groups.

To coincide with the publication of his large monograph 'Topography and Population of Ancient Boiotia', we are reprinting a series of 15 of Professor Fossey's previously published papers. These papers, scattered across many periodicals, were written during the preparation of the monograph; the latter, in its turn, makes frequent ref-erence to the papers. In this way, the two works complement each other; the papers also treat of detailed problems which could not have received the same full discussion in the monograph. The papers are divided into four sections: testimonia, Mykenaian Boiotia, Sites and History of Boiotia from Protohistoric to Classical Times, and Roman Boiotia.
Studies in Boiotian Inscriptions
A collection of papers on various aspects of Boiotian epigraphy: Imperial letters, decrees of proxenia, military catalogues, manumissions, statue dedications, tombstones and graffiti. The texts discussed come from many parts of Boiotia but with a certain concentration from the Kopaïs. A few of the papers are reprinted from previous publications but many are here published for the first time and they are extensively illustrated. In addition to discussions of the various genres of text there are full onomastic and prosopographic comments on all names cited.
