Grasby’s Processes in the Making of Roman Inscriptions full set available

Filed under: methodology,publications — Gabriel Bodard @ 14:58

The Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents at Oxford University is pleased to announce the recent publication of the last in the series Processes in the Making of Roman Inscriptions by Richard Grasby. The complete series of thirteen booklets, comprising an Introduction and twelve individual Studies, will shortly be available as a boxed set.

Inscriptions speak of the processes employed in their making. It is not difficult to distinguish the great quantity of informal, roughly-chiseled lettering from that which has been regulated within an ordered plan, accurately constructed and carved.

Studies of selected inscriptions in the style scriptura monumentalis were first published in Papers of the British School at Rome and one in Britannia. These have now been revised to include recent research findings and are published as individual Studies in this series.

The Studies present inscriptions at various stages of their making from draft text to carefully constructed letters set out on the stone itself, brush painted and carved. It is possible to draw a significant amount of forensic evidence of these stages from the stones themselves. Through measurement and an understanding of the processes of making, some epigraphists may find in these Studies another approach to the reconstruction of fragmentary inscriptions.

The last in the series, Study 12, focusses on CIL XIV.83, a dedicatory inscription to Germanicus, on display in the Galleria Lapidaria in the Vatican Museum. Richard Grasby’s choice of this inscription as a final Study in the series was deliberate, despite the fact that, or because, superficially it does not have the formal characteristics of an Imperial dedication. It is unimpressive in size, out of balance in line lengths and sparing in its text considering the many military successes of Germanicus. However the lettering emerging from the red paint suggested to Richard Grasby a worthy piece of craftsmanship if not design, and he has subjected it to exactly the same sequence of study as the largest, most formal, in the series.

Details of how to purchase the Studies, individually or as a boxed set, can be obtained from Maggy Sasanow at the CSAD, Ioannou Centre, 66 St. Giles, Oxford OX1 3LU; email: margaret.sasanow@classics.ox.ac.uk.

Medieval Inscriptions from Florence, and a Blog

Filed under: publications — Tom Elliott @ 19:29

Tommaso Gramigni writes to alert us to the publication of a catalogue of medieval inscriptions from Florence and its surroundings, which derives from his PhD research at University of Florence. It is presently openly available online (PDF) and will soon appear in print from Firenze University Press: Iscrizioni medievali nel territorio fiorentino fino al XIII secolo.

Tommaso also alerts us to his blog, Epigrafia Medievale.

Attic Inscriptions Online (in translation)

Filed under: publications — Gabriel Bodard @ 19:53

Sent by Finlay McCourt to the Digital Classicist list:

List members may be interested in a new website designed to make available the inscriptions of Athens and Attica in English translation:

www.atticinscriptions.com

It is being launched with translations of the 281 inscribed laws and decrees of Athens, 352/1-322/1 BC, which have recently been edited by Stephen Lambert as IG II3 1, 292-572.

We plan to develop the site, enhancing its functionality and increasing the range of information supplied, and to expand it in due course to include all Attic inscriptions.

(As McCourt points out, there are so far only a handful of inscriptions, in English translation only [no original text], and with only simple search and browse by bibliographical reference as entry points, but hopefully this will develop into a useful resource for historians and students.)

New online publication: MAMA XI

Filed under: EpiDoc,publications — Gabriel Bodard @ 10:10

Please find attached a flyer advertising the online publication of a new corpus of Greek and Latin inscriptions, Monumenta Asiae Minoris Antiqua XI: Monuments from Phrygia and Lykaonia.

MAMA XI is a corpus of 387 inscriptions and other ancient monuments, 292 of which are unpublished, from Phrygia and Lykaonia recorded by Sir William Calder (1881-1960) and Dr Michael Ballance (†27 July 2006) in the course of annual expeditions to Asia Minor in 1954-1957. The monuments have been edited with full commentaries and marked-up in xml using EpiDoc electronic editorial conventions by Peter Thonemann with the assistance of Édouard Chiricat and Charles Crowther.

The full corpus was published online on 14 September 2012 at the following address: http://mama.csad.ox.ac.uk/. A print volume will be published later as a Roman Society monograph.

The MAMA XI project has been funded by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and is based at the Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents in Oxford.

From Stephen Mitchell:

The British Institute at Ankara has published two new fascicles of David French’s Corpus of the Milestones of Roman Asia Minor as PDF files on the Internet, from which they can be downloaded without charge. They are available on the web-site of the BIAA (Home page: http://www.biaa.ac.uk/home). RRMAM 3.1 (63 pages) contains the Republican milestones from the province of Asia, RRMAM 3.2 (358 pages) the 132 milestones from the province of Galatia. The publications include not only the texts, concordances and other apparatus, but also schematic maps and abundant illustrations (http://www.biaa.ac.uk/home/index.phpoption=com_content&task=view&id=109&Itemid=51#RRMAM32). A fascicle with the texts from Cappadocia is due to be published shortly.
