Inscriptions Latines de Narbonnaise – 4 : Épigraphie et informatique

Filed under: events — Marion Lamé @ 20:06

Un colloque consacré à l’épigraphie de la Gaule romaine se tiendra à la Maison Méditerranéenne des Sciences de l’Homme d’Aix-en-Provence les 4 et 5 décembre 2008 (MMSH, 5, rue du Château de l’Horloge, F-13094 Aix-en-Provence). Ce colloque, organisé par le Centre Camille Jullian (CNRS-UMR 6573), présentera les recherches en cours relatives aux inscriptions de la province romaine de Gaule Narbonnaise et des régions périphériques proches (provinces Alpines, Sud de la Gaule Lyonnaise).

Le jeudi après-midi 4 déc. sera consacré à la présentation de différentes bases de données épigraphiques existantes et des recherches qu’elles permettent. En effet, depuis des années de nombreux chercheurs s’intéressent à ces outils et des laboratoires ont déjà « mis en ligne » leurs travaux. D’autre part, la SFER (Société Française d’Épigraphie Latine), et par son intermédiaire, tous les épigraphistes français, ont été sollicités pour participer au projet de fédération de bases de données épigraphiques EAGLE : Electronic Archive on Greek and Latin Epigraphy. Une discussion s’impose sur le bien fondé et les enjeux de cette participation française au projet.

La journée de vendredi verra la présentation de plusieurs communications scientifiques. Cette rencontre, qui réunira les différents enseignants, chercheurs et étudiants en doctorat qui travaillent actuellement sur le Sud-Est de la France, est destinée à faire le point sur l’état d’avancement des recherches en cours et à échanger nos connaissances sur un certain nombre de dossiers relatifs à l’épigraphie religieuse, sociale, institutionnelle ou encore funéraire de la Narbonnaise et de ses régions limitrophes.

Postgraduate Training in Epigraphy, Athens, 2009

Filed under: events,training — Gabriel Bodard @ 16:42

Circulated by the British School at Athens:

14th-28th June 2009

Whether publishing new texts, challenging old ones, or critically analysing editions, this course provides training for historians, archaeologists and textual scholars alike in the discipline of reading and interpreting epigraphic evidence. Inscriptions are constantly changing the way in which we view the ancient world, as year on year hundreds of new discoveries are made. This course will focus upon this new material, with lectures and site tours by scholars currently excavating and publishing in the field. Students will be guided through the process of producing editions of inscriptions, gaining both practical first hand experience with the stones, as well as instruction in editorial and bibliographic skills. The course will be taught at the BSA and at the Epigraphic Museum, the world’s largest collection of Greek inscriptions, where students will each be assigned a stone from which they will create an edition and commentary, and where they will receive tuition from leading scholars in Athens. The importance of seeing inscriptions within their archaeological and topographical contexts will be explored during visits to sites in Athens and Attica.  Some prior knowledge of Greek is essential, although students with only elementary skills are advised that reading inscriptions is a very good way to learn! For advice about whether this is the right course for you, please contact

Students will be based at the BSA Hostel in shared rooms of two. Self catering facilities are available as well as 24 hour access to the superb library facilities. Accommodation, tuition, entry to all sites and museums, and membership of the BSA for one month are included in course fee of £580. Free membership for the remainder of the session will be offered to students wishing to remain at the BSA after the course to continue their research. Travel to and from Greece is the sole responsibility of the course participants, who are also required to provide their own travel insurance. Students are recommended to apply to their universities or funding body for financial support. A number of bursaries are available (see the application form) from The British Epigraphy Society.

Further information and an application form can be obtained from the Assistant Director ( and from the website ( Application forms and a reference letter should be received no later than April 1st 2009.

A message from AIEGL President Stephen Mitchell

Filed under: AIEGL — Gabriel Bodard @ 19:31

The International association of Greek and Latin Epigraphy has new officers for the period 2008-2012. Angela Donati (Bologna) continues in the office of Secretary-General. Stephen Mitchell (Exeter University, UK) was elected President, with Manfred Schmidt (Berlin Academy) as Vice-President, Christian Witschel (Heidelberg) as Deputy Secretary General, and Prof. Anne Kolb (Zurich) as treasurer.

The officers had a first meeting at the end of June 2008. The main objective was to establish policy objectives for AIEGL over the next quinquennium, until the 14th Congress, which is scheduled to held in Berlin in 2012.

Three aspects of AIEGL’s activities were discussed at length.

1) The role of the International Association needs re-definition, so that it can respond to the needs to the epigraphic community today. When it was founded, late 1970s AIEGL’s main priority was to promote effective links between scholars in the countries of eastern Europe, who faced many economic and political restrictions on their activities, and those of western Europe and the USA. Circumstances are now very different, but the Association’s overriding purpose, to promote communication, dialogue and active cooperation between its members, remains the same. In practice, this requires the Association to be flexible and innovative, and supportive of new initiatives which will advance this purpose.

2) Since the EAGLE initiative, which was launched in 1997 by AIEGL’s then president, Prof. S. Panciera (Rome), digital epigraphy has been a central item on the AIEGL agenda. It is now a particular priority to facilitate initiatives in this area, above all those that try to establish communications between the very many separate digital epigraphic projects. At a modest level this can be done simply by helping these projects to keep in touch with each other. The holy grail would be to develop AIEGL’s own web-site in such a way that it could serve as a portal to many diverse epigraphic projects, providing access with search possibilities to many existing initiatives. It is unlikely that AIEGL itself, with limited resources of finance and woman-power, could achieve this, but it may have a significant role to play in helping other centres to realising an aim of this sort. After the formal meeting in June, the officers had an extended discussion of these issues with Charlotte Roueché, who was present and could up-date us on the progress of the EPIDOC community, and with Tom Elliott (deputy Director of the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World) communicating by Skype from an Internet cafe in New York, who gave invaluable guidance from a wider perspective, including the interlinking of epigraphic digital projects with those in related disciplines.

3) AIEGL has modest funds from accumulated membership subscriptions. As with many organisations, the membership list is in need of revision, and it requires hard work on the part of the treasurer to ensure that members pay their annual dues. The British Epigraphy Society is a model in this respect, in that members’ subs. are paid as a lump sum, with full details of subscribing individuals, making the task for AIEGL immeasurably easier. The current AIEGL officers are acutely aware of the need to maintain membership and subscriptions. There is equally a need for an effective and transparent procedure for disbursing funds to deserving epigraphic causes. There was general agreement that one priority should be the funding of events and workshops designed to train postgraduate students or early career scholars, and I hope that very shortly we can finalise an application procedure, so that organisers of training events and workshops can apply for modest support funding for these events.

We hope that these general objectives will be regarded as desirable and relatively uncontroversial, although they are not necessarily easy to realize. Comments and suggestions from the Current Epigraphy community are warmly welcomed!

Epigraphic Flickr: Cippus of Probus from Tunisia

Filed under: flickr — Tom Elliott @ 19:31

For some time I’ve been trying to follow the posting of photographs of epigraphic interest to Flickr, the photo-sharing website. Of particular interest (as previously discussed) are the groups Visibile Parlare – Visible Words (Latin) and Visibile Parlare – Visible Words (Greek). A search for the tag “inscription” is also interesting.

From time to time I think I shall highlight here items that catch my interest in these venues.

Consider a photograph posted by Sally Wilson (sallycat101) on 26 October 2008, labeled “inscribed stone, carthage.” The high resolution image of this cylindrical cippus shows only part of the text campus, for external circumstances explained by the photographer.

A little transcription and then searching in the epigraphic databases and we can find that this is a published text:

  • CIL 8.22084 = ILTun 1732; registered in EDCS (photo), where we get a digital text as follows (I copy it here because there is no mechanism that I can find for direct linkage to individual records in EDCS); evidently not in EDH:

Imp(eratori) Caes(ari)
M(arco) Aurelio
Probo Pi-
o Felici Aug(usto)
ae potesta-
[tis —

Which I’d translate as: “The Emperor Caesar Marcus Aurelius Probus Pius Felix Augustus, pontifex maximus, (holding the) tribunician power …” (the cippus is broken away from its base, destroying one or more additional lines of text).

It’s apparently a milestone (or boundary marker) of the Roman Emperor Probus (AD 276-282). There are a few other inscriptions of Probus cataloged in CIL and other corpora. Without the tribunician year or other indication of date (e.g., consular year), it may be impossible to date this particular inscription more closely.

I’m sure readers without present access to CIL or ILTun (like me) would be grateful for comments (posted here) about the context of this find (EDCS lists “Ain Ghar Salah” as the findspot), the road it may have been associated with, or other relevant matters.

Query: History of Phoenician-Punic Epigraphy

Filed under: query — Tom Elliott @ 18:35

Philip Schmitz writes:

I have been asked to prepare a chapter on the history of Phoenician-Punic epigraphy for a volume honoring an important contributor to the field. I would like to include details of human interest pertaining to significant scholars and discoveries. I have consulted Mark Smith’s wonderful survey of the Northwest Semitic field, and will incorporate relevant items from that work.

I am not much interested in personal foibles or idiosyncrasies of teachers and scholars except as such might have led to progress in the discovery, decipherment, critical edition, or interpretation of Phoenician and Punic inscriptions. More valuable would be instances of working method, the role of comprehensive cataloguing, notable cases of insight or intuition, and the like. Eyewitness accounts of text discoveries, personal or reported narratives about teaching and research methods, and reflection about how discoveries of texts have changed perceptions of ancient history and biblical studies are especially welcome.

The period I plan to cover begins with the seventeenth-century erudites and extends to the current generation. My focus will be on Phoenician and Punic, although that history is difficult to divide neatly from the rest of Northwest Semitic epigraphy or from Semitic studies at large. The earliest periods of the alphabet, significant as they are, are less germane to this study than the periods from Iron II to Roman. I am particularly concerned to identify critical moments and turning points in the field’s development. Hearing your perceptions of these would be immensely helpful as I review and revise my own understanding. I greatly appreciate any response you might wish to make to my request.
