California Classical Studies, a peer-reviewed open-access venue for long-format scholarship, is pleased to announce its next two forthcoming volumes and to invite English-language submissions, especially in the areas of epigraphy, papyrology, archaeology, and studies of textual tradition. No affiliation with the University of California is required for publication in the series.

Forthcoming summer 2015: Mark Griffith, Greek Satyr Play: Five Studies [CCS, Number 3]. With a new introduction and some revisions, these essays on Classical Greek satyr plays, originally published in various venues between 2002 and 2010, suggest new critical approaches to this dramatic genre and identify previously neglected dimensions and dynamics in these plays within their original Athenian context.

Forthcoming late 2015: Mirjam Kotwick, Alexander of Aphrodisias and the Text of Aristotle’s Metaphysics [CCS, Number 4]. Based on the author’s 2014 Munich dissertation, this study offers a new appraisal of the ancient tradition of the Metaphysics, demonstrating what uses can be made of Alexander’s commentary to learn about that tradition and how the commentary may have influenced the tradition of the philosophical text itself.

In preparation for 2016 and 2017: Todd Hickey, Greek Papyri in the British Library (P.Lond. VIII or IX); Donald Mastronarde, Preliminary Studies on the Scholia to Euripides; Giambattista D’Alessio and Lucia Prauscello, a new edition of the fragments of Corinna.

Pavement Signs Typology

Filed under: methodology,Pre-press — Gabriel Bodard @ 18:13

A typology for recording pavement signs.

Pavement Signs Typology (PDF)

Over many years Charlotte Roueché has been collecting examples of pavement markings, particularly at Aphrodisias and Ephesus: these have conventionally been described as gameboards, although only some of them were definitely intended for this purpose. The late R.C. Bell made a very large collection of such signs, and in 2007 they published a typology to be used for recording pavement markings and gameboards. This has now been enhanced with links to published examples, which are set out in the attached document, to be launched at the 2012 Berlin AIEGL Congress.

Colleagues are invited to provide references to further photographic illustrations, new designs to add to the typology, or any other suggestions or corrections. Please either make your contributions as a comment here, or email charlotte.roueche[at]; the aim is to develop a shared resource, and to enable better practice in the recording of such materials.
