Greek epigraphic abbreviations

Posted on behalf of Robert Parker:

Abbreviations list for Greek epigraphic collections and corpora

The ‘Committee of 10’ directed by Denis Rousset and Thomas Corsten that has been at work for some while on drafting what it is hoped may become a standard list of abbreviations for Greek epigraphic collections and corpora is now seeking feedback from the epigraphic community on a draft list.
Both a letter from the two directors that lays out the remit and goal of the task group and the draft list itself can be read on (and in the latter case also downloaded from) the British Epigraphy Society’s website:

Please send any comments and suggestions you may have to me (I am serving as a member of the group on behalf of LGPN), by 10 July, by e-mail:

Produzioni artigianali in area adriatica: manufatti, ateliers e attori (III sec. a.C. – V sec. d.C.)

Bologna – 23-25 maggio 2019

La tavola rotonda annuale organizzata in seno al progetto ‘AdriAtlas’ – Atlante digitalizzato dell’Adriatico antico’ si incentra per il 2019 sulla tematica della produzione artigianale e manifatturiera, declinata in quattro principali linee di indagine:

  • localizzazione delle produzioni: città, suburbio, vici, ville;
  • strutture e ambienti della produzione, ateliers;
  • attori della produzione;
  • organizzazione della produzione.

Il colloquio ha, tra i suoi scopi, quello di far luce sulle differenti modalità produttive sviluppate in contesti geografici gravitanti sull’Adriatico e quello di fornire un quadro aggiornato del fenomeno produttivo e delle sue interazioni con gli altri soggetti del tessuto economico.

Sessione epigrafica: 23 maggio, pomeriggio

The annual meeting of the project ‘AdriAtlas – Digital Atlas of Ancient Adriatic’ is focused on manufacturing and artisanal production. The main lines of research are:

  • production sites: cities, suburbs, viciand villas;
  • productive structures and workshops;
  • craftsmen;
  • production organisation.

The main goals of the Conference are to enlighten the different production processes in geographic contexts around the Adriatic sea and to give an updated state of research on productions and their interactions with the other players of the economic pattern.

Special focus on inscriptions: May 23, afternoon session

Funerary Landscapes of the Late Antique oecumene. Contextualizing Epigraphic and Archeological Evidence of Mortuary Practices (Heidelberg, 30 May – 1 June 2019)

Funerary practices and epitaphs are a central research field of Classical Studies. Especially in times of social, political and religious change, evidence from the tombs and their surroundings is a key factor in our understanding of continuity and transformation processes on multiple cultural levels. Late Antiquity was doubtlessly one of such transitional phases. However, research on burial practices and tomb inscriptions of this period is still very uneven. Although hundreds of necropoleis, coemeterial churches and individual tombs are known across the Late Antique World, a holistic documentation including epigraphic, iconographic, spatial and social analysis, as well as anthropological examination and natural scientific data, is mostly lacking. Through this conference we would like to undertake a start to fill some lacunae on Late Antique funerary research. First, we will try to link as many disciplines as possible in order to draw a more complete picture of sepulchral habits of Late Antiquity as it hitherto has not been done. Secondly, we intend to give – for the first time – a Mediterranean-wide overview on Late Antique funerary landscapes, not only examining global trends, but also local and regional habits. Thirdly, we want to illustrate the potential of new contextual approaches; questions on the materiality and design of epitaphs and tombs, their visibility, perception and accessibility will be central guidelines of our conference.

The Third North American Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy will be held January 5-7, 2020, in Washington, D.C., under the aegis of the American Society of Greek and Latin Epigraphy (ASGLE), and with support from Georgetown University.

The congress will be held immediately following the Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America and the Society for Classical Studies in Washington DC (January 2-5, 2020), and will include thematic panels on a variety of topics, a poster session, and possible excursions.  We invite papers that present epigraphy related to the ancient world from the archaic period through late antiquity. The theme is broadly designed to encompass discussions of texts and monuments as well as the people involved and the social environment behind the creation or display of inscriptions.

Panels may be devoted to some of the following themes: The epigraphic habit, inscribed instrumentum, late antiquity, monuments and identity, religion, magic, the ancient city, the family in antiquity, ancient graffiti, curse tablets, slavery, writer and audience, text and context, literacy, and newly discovered or edited texts.

The congress organizing committee is pleased to invite individual abstracts for the parallel sessions (for papers of 20 minutes) and for the poster session. Panels may be devoted to some of the following themes: the epigraphic habit, inscribed instrumenta, late antiquity, monuments and identity, religion, magic, the ancient city, the family in antiquity, ancient graffiti, curse tablets, slavery, writer and audience, text and context, literacy, and newly discovered or edited texts.

Abstracts: Abstracts of ca. 350-500 words, or no more than 1 page, should be submitted anonymously (i.e. without your name on the attachment) by email attachment in PDF or Word document form by April 15, 2019 to the congress email address at Abstracts will be reviewed by the members of the congress organizing committee and the results of the review process will be made known to potential participants after June 1, 2019.
