Colloquium on ‘Roman Provincial Calendars and the Hemerologia’

University College London
Monday 4 – Wednesday 6 July 2016

The ERC Advanced Grant Project ‘Calendars in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages’ is delighted to issue a call for papers for a colloquium to be held on 4-6 July 2016 at University College London on the theme of ‘Roman Provincial calendars and the Hemerologia’.

Calendars were an important manifestation of cultural diversity in the Roman Empire, especially in the provinces of the Roman East, where the Julian calendar was generally not in use. The calendars of cities and provinces were very diverse, some remaining lunar or lunisolar, but most becoming adapted in a variety of forms to the solar, Julian calendar of the imperial rulers.

This diversity is evident in epigraphic sources, but most explicitly in texts known as Hemerologia, which are attested in a few early medieval manuscripts. The Hemerologia consist of calendar tables with the days of the Julian calendar in the first column, and in the rest of the table, the equivalent days in a range of calendars from the Roman Eastern provinces and cities. These texts are a powerful testimony of calendar diversity in the Roman East, but at the same time, of the standardization of these calendars and their assimilation with the 365-day year of the Julian calendar. The historical reality behind the Hemerologia was probably more complex and flexible than they convey. But by describing or indeed prescribing a changeless, fixed relationship between the Julian and provincial calendars, the Hemerologia may have played a critical role in the standardization of time reckoning in late Antiquity.

2nd North American Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy

2nd North American Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy

The Second North American Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy (NACGLE) will be held Monday through Wednesday, January 4-6, 2016, at the University of California, Berkeley. A preliminary program is available here.

The congress, to be held in conjunction with the Joint Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America and the Society for Classical Studies in San Francisco (Wednesday through Saturday, January 6-9, 2016), will be the largest epigraphical event in the world for the year 2016. Building on the successful first NACGLE, which was held in 2011 at San Antonio, TX (click here for the proceedings), we continue our efforts to promote epigraphical studies in North America by inviting an array of young and senior international scholars to present their work to a large audience. The second NACGLE includes parallel sessions on Greek and Roman epigraphy, graffiti, calendars, and digital epigraphy; plenary sessions on new Greek and Latin texts, and one devoted to the epigraphy of Greek religion; and two keynote addresses by Angelos Chaniotis (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton), and Alison Cooley (University of Warwick).

The congress is sponsored by the Sara B. Aleshire Center for the Study of Greek Epigraphy, the Department of Classics, the Department of History, and the Graduate Group of Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology (AHMA) at UC Berkeley, as well as the Townsend Center for the Humanities, under the aegis of the American Society of Greek and Latin Epigraphy (ASGLE). Additional support is offered by the Association Internationale d’Épigraphie Grecque et Latine (AIEGL), and Brill Publishers.

The congress is open to the public but pre-registration (by December 1) is required. To register, please send an email to There is no fee for registration. Further information and updates will be posted regularly on the website of the 2nd NACGLE.

Corporal Obscenity in Antiquity (Conference, Edinburgh, Oct 23-4 2015)

Call for Papers
The Classical Body Split Open: Corporal Obscenity in Antiquity
University of Edinburgh
23-24th October 2015

Alongside the well-known and reassuring image of the classical body as represented by its neoclassical reinterpretation, there stands a well-established classical tradition that portrays that very same body as distorted, disembowelled, obscene. Shoulder to shoulder with dios Odysseus comes deformed Thersites; alongside the sublimity of choral lyric are the bodily fluids of the Iambos; the same years that produce the Athenian ideology of kalokagathia also witness the obscenity of the comic genre. Obscenity looms large in the Latin world as well: not just in literary texts, but in inscriptions and artistic representations. Silver Latin literature famously turns the golden lines of the Aeneid into brutal Civil War and sees Trimalchio concocting a stew out of Pentheus. Continue reading

EAGLE Search online

The EAGLE portal is now live and you can search all partner databases and contributed contents in one search, including currently more than one million items. You can use:

In the advanced search you can choose which fields to search, and you will be then able to further filter your results based on the contents of the EAGLE Controlled Vocabularies.

Results are displayed divided by entity type: Artefacts, Texts and Images. You might wish to see only items for which the databases have a text or only images related to your search.

Multiple instances of the same inscription are listed in the result view as tabs.

The EAGLE portal is based on a content aggregator with the primary function to collect data for Europeana, therefore it does not have all the partners’ information. Please click on the Original Source button to see each inscription on the content provider’s website with the full and up to date metadata.

You can download the relevant EpiDoc file for each text where available, from the Export button.

For further information, please refer to the user manual. In this document you will also find all users functions described.

Feedback is always very welcome, please write to

If you would like to contribute with photos, translations or transcriptions of inscriptions, please contact EAGLE at
