After decades of controversy, there is now a growing consensus that Greek warfare was not singular and simple, but complex and multiform. In this volume, emerging and established scholars build on this consensus to explore Greek warfare beyond its traditional focus on hoplites and the phalanx. We expand the chronological limits back into the Iron Age, the geographical limits to the central and eastern Mediterranean, and the operational limits to include cavalry, light-armed troops, and sieges. We also look beyond the battlefield at integral aspects of warfare including religion, the experiences of women, and the recovery of the war dead.
The goal of this inscription-based study is to shed new light on Hellenistic and Roman Delphi by placing inscribed honours at the front and centre of the investigation. This book provides, for the first time, a comprehensive and coherent discussion of the Delphic gift-giving system, its regional interactions, and its honorific network. It employs both conventional and new scientific methods, including an analysis of quantitative trends in the epigraphic records and a Social Network Analysis (SNA) approach. The volume also addresses a broad spectrum of epigraphic topics and discusses current research questions as well as future perspectives.
Author: Pietro Zaccaria
As part of the continuation of Felix Jacoby’s monumental collection of fragmentary Greek historiography, this volume, by Pietro Zaccaria, contains new editions of the Hellenistic biographers of the first century BC and the Hellenistic biographers of uncertain date. More than one hundred fragments from biographies of philosophers, statesmen, and orators, penned by eleven Greek biographers, are critically edited, translated into English, and provided with comprehensive commentary. For each biographer, an introduction discusses the author’s dates, life, and works. By offering the first complete corpus of late Hellenistic biography preserved in fragments, this volume contributes to our knowledge and understanding of Hellenistic historiography and of ancient biography as a whole.
This book concerns the ancient rock-cut monuments carved throughout the Near East, paying particular attention to the fate of these monuments in the centuries after their initial production. As parts of the landscapes in which they were carved, they acquired new meanings in the cultural memory of the people living around them. The volume joins numerous recent studies on the reception of historical texts and artefacts, exploring the peculiar affordances of these long-lasting and often salient monuments. The volume gathers articles by archeologists, art historians, and philologists, covering the entire Near East, from Iran to Lebanon and from Turkey to Egypt. It also analyzes long-lasting textual traditions that aim to explain the origins and meaning of rock-cut monuments and other related carvings.
Sverkos and Tsolakis provide a guide to the inscriptions published, mentioned, or discussed in the volumes XLVI – LX (1996 – 2010) of Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum for scholars and students of Greek epigraphy. The Consolidated Concordances is a catalogue of references to inscriptions and their respective occurrences in the entries of SEG. By using this volume, the readers can find the corresponding entries of SEG where the first edition or later studies of inscriptions of their interest are presented. Moreover, Tsolakis has collected and compiled the epigraphic abbreviations both those used in SEG since volume XXVI and those included the “Liste des abréviations des éditions et ouvrages de référence pour l'épigraphie grecque alphabétique” ( GrEpiAbbr).
Historische und archäologische Untersuchungen
Die von Imperien ausgelösten Dynamiken, ihre Entstehung, Transformationen und Auflösung haben die antike Geschichte in Zentralasien, der Mittelmeerwelt und Kontinentaleuropa entscheidend mitbestimmt. Konflikte und Kooperationen zwischen Imperien ebenso wie der Einfluss imperialer Ordnungen auf Regionen oder auch einzelne Städte stehen im Zentrum sowohl der aktuellen althistorischen wie auch der archäologischen Forschung.
Die Reihe soll einen privilegierten Publikationsort für zukunftsweisende, auch interdisziplinäre und kulturell übergreifende Studien bieten, die nicht nur die Mittelmeerwelt, sondern auch gemeinsam und in Wechselwirkung mit ihr die zentralasiatische Landmasse umfassen, die durch archäologische Methoden jetzt wesentlich besser erforscht werden kann als noch vor zwanzig Jahren. Die Reihe ist offen für deutsch- und englischsprachige Publikationen.

Die Beiträge zur Reihe werden durch einen internationalen wissenschaftlichen Beirat mittels peer reviewing geprüft.

In dem groß angelegten interdisziplinären Forschungs- und Editionsprojekt Kleine und fragmentarische Historiker der Spätantike an der Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf werden die sogenannten kleinen oder nur fragmentarisch überlieferten Werke zur spätantiken Geschichte systematisch erfasst und in zweisprachigen Textausgaben mit einem ausführlichen philologischen und historischen Kommentar für die weitere wissenschaftliche Erforschung zugänglich gemacht.

Darüber hinaus ermöglicht die deutsche Übersetzung auch dem Nicht-Spezialisten eine Beschäftigung mit diesen zum Teil nur schwer zugänglichen und wenig beachteten griechischen und lateinischen Quellentexten – nicht zuletzt im Studium, wo die Epoche der Spätantike inzwischen zum festen Bestandteil des Curriculums geworden ist. Die Edition ist sowohl gedruckt wie auch als E-Book erhältlich.

Herausgeber der Reihe sind Prof. Dr. Bruno Bleckmann (Alte Geschichte) und Prof. Dr. Markus Stein (Klassische Philologie)
