Open Access Journal: Hyperboreus: Bibliotheca Classica Petropolitana

 [First poted in AWOL 7 August 2014, updated 15 October 2018]

Hyperboreus: Bibliotheca Classica Petropolitana
ISSN: 0949-2615
Hyperboreus was founded by the Bibliotheca classica Petropolitana in 1994 as the first academic journal in Russia since the 1917 revolution specializing in the field of classical studies. Scholars from the Classical Department of St. Petersburg State University, the St. Petersburg Institute of History (Russian Academy of Sciences) and St. Petersburg classical Gymnasium participated in the foundation of the journal. The editors value highly the support and advice of many Western European and American scholars during the foundation and subsequent activities of Hyperboreus.

The aims of Hyperboreus are to advance the study of classical antiquity in Russia and to encourage international cooperation in this field by publishing original articles and reviews of books in Russian, English, German, French, Italian, and Latin. The editors invite contributions in all areas of classical scholarship (language and literature, history, philosophy and sciences, papyrology, epigraphy, archaeology, arts) based primarily on the interpretation of classical sources.

Hyperboreus also aims at throwing light upon archaeological excavations of the classical sites on the Northern coast of the Black Sea region.
Hyperboreus, основанный Античным кабинетом. в 1994 г., является первым в России после закрытия ЖМНП (1917) научным журналом, специально посвященным изучению классической древности. В создании журнала важную роль играли сотрудники кафедры классической филологии Санкт-Петербургского государственного университета и Санкт-Петербургской классической гимназии. Ученые-антиковеды ряда западноевропейских и американских университетов и научных центров оказали неоценимую поддержку при учреждении журнала и в ходе его становления.

Журнал стремится содействовать развитию всех областей антиковедения и укреплению международного научного сотрудничества, ставя своей целью публикацию высококвалифицированных ранее не издававшихся исследований и критических рецензий на русском, латинском, английском, немецком, французском и итальянском языках. Приветствуется публикация в журнале отечественными учеными своих исследований на западноевропейских языках. Журнал принимает статьи по всем разделам антиковедения — классическим языкам и литературе, античной истории, истории философии и науки, эпиграфике, папирологии, археологии и истории искусства, — отдавая предпочтение исследованиям, в основе которых лежит анализ источников. Редакция с готовностью предоставляет страницы журнала для рецензий на научные труды по антиковедению. 

«Hyperboreus» стремится освещать результаты археологических исследований в Северном Причерноморье.

Cuneiform Commentaries Project Newsletter (October 2018)

Cuneiform Commentaries Project Newsletter (October 2018)
October 14, 2018
Dear subscribers,
We wish to notify you of several new texts that have recently been added to the online editions of the Cuneiform Commentaries Project (, a list of which is provided below.
In addition, a total of 1,172 new photographs of tablets housed at the British Museum, taken by Mary Frazer in February 2018, have been uploaded to the website.
You are warmly invited to contribute any editions of commentary tablets you may have made for publication on the CCP website, for which you will, of course, receive full credit.
All the best,
The CCP Team
CCP 2.1.B (Šurpu, Medical text (?) B): The upper portion of the obverse of a two-column commentary in tabular-format. While the entries in ll. 1-21 of column 1 are drawn from Šurpu II, III and IV, the precise identity of the source of the subsequent entries is unclear. (Read more)
CCP 2.1.C (Tummu bītu, Šurpu 2 C): A fairly well preserved one-column tablet found among numerous other tablets in a private house in Aššur explains portions from Tummu bītu, an Akkadian incantation preventing evil spirits from entering the house, and from the second tablet of the magical compendium Šurpu, an eight-tablet series of rituals and incantations accompanying the magical rubbing of a patient, and the burning (šurpu) of the skin particles removed in the process. (Read more)
CCP 3.1.58.A.b (Enūma Anu Enlil 58(59)-62(63) Group B A): A mukallimtu commentary from Nineveh on 24 omens1 derived from the appearance and behaviour of Venus. As is typical of mukallimtu commentaries in Neo-Assyrian script from Nineveh, the lines following the first line of a new entry are all indented. The terminology of the rubric is used to describe eleven other commentaries from Nineveh, all on different Chapters of EAE. (Read more)
CCP 3.9.u8 (Divination, Uncertain): This small fragment, classified as a “scholarly text” in the catalogue of the Kuyunjik Collection,1 preserves meager remains of a tabular commentary. Interestingly, ll. 3′–5′ duplicate the large commentary tablet K.4387 r. ii 51–53 (2R 47 = CCP 3.1.u72). (Read more)
CCP 3.9.u7 (Enūma Anu Enlil 5 (?)): This small fragment contains remains of a commentary on an astrological text. It is divided in two sections by a ruling after line 4′. (Read more)
CCP 6.1.2 (Aa I/2): The present text is a fragment of a fairly large multi-column tablet with at least two columns per side. Each column is divided into three subcolumns: (1) pronunciation, (2) logogram, and (3) Akkadian equivalent. Based on the entries still extant on the fragment, the inscribed side can be identified as the tablet’s reverse. The entries are based on Aa I/2. (Read more)
CCP 6.1.17 (Aa III/2): This small fragment of the lower left corner of a tablet was found by Hormuzd Rassam at the Babylonian site of Jimjima and entered the collection of the British Museum in 1881. Unfortunately, nothing of its subscript or colophon is preserved, but its entries refer clearly to the 3rd tablet of the lexical series Ea. (Read more)
CCP 6.2.1 (Diri 1): This small fragment in the Yale Babylonian Collection preserves the lower right corner of a tablet with entries of the first tablet of Diri. Eckart Frahm1 suggested that this fragment can eventually be considered a commentary on this lexical series. (Read more)
CCP 6.2.7.B (Weidner’s God List / Diri 7 (?)): The multi-column tablet VAT 10220 (+) VAT 10249 (KAV 46 and 47) was found in the “House of the Exorcist” in Assur and dates to the late Neo-Assyrian period. There are several possible base texts: the Weidner God List (WGL), the extended sign syllabary Diri, or the sign syllabary Ea. (Read more)

Open Access Journal: Crisia

[First posted in AWOL 24 November 2011, updated 14 October 2018]

ISSN: 1016–2798

“Crisia” is a publication of the Ţării Crişurilor Museum in Oradea and it was founded by Prof. Dr. Sever Dumitraşcu. The annual of Oradea experienced three distinct phases in its development: 1971-1983, 1984-1989 and after 1990. In the first period “Crisia” was exclusively a publication of the department of history team of the museum of Oradea. During the period of 1984 - 1989, by abolishing the other magazines of the institution, “Biharea” and “Nimphaea”, “Crisia” remained the only annual of this. After 1990 things returned to normal, “Crisia” becomes a prestigious publication, of wide intellectual breathing, open to the collaborators from country and abroad, the last numbers capture this reality abundantly.

The stated goal of the magazine is that of publishing the results of the history and archeology researches, by studies and materials relating primarily to Bihor County but, also to other areas. By valorizing some unpublished and interesting information, it has greatly contributed to the development of the Transylvanian historiography. The materials present in the magazine have a balanced epoch layout. In time, during the 40 years of existence, “Crisia” noted itself firstly by constant. Few publications of this type had annual appearances as systematic as the annual of Oradea. This proves once again the seriousness and readiness to researching of the historians’ team of the department of history of the museum of Oradea.

540 American Numismatic Society publications are now available in the Hathi Trust Digital Library as full-text for free use by the public.
In a sweeping effort to make its older and out-of‐print publications available to the public as Open Access, The American Numismatic Society has partnered with HathiTrust ( As a result of this partnership scans of nearly 550 ANS titles – including the American Journal of Numismatics, Numismatic Literature, Numismatic Notes and Monographs, and stand-­alone monographs have become fully readable and downloadable to anyone who wants them under a Creative Commons, non-­commercial, attribution, share-­alike license. This means that these ANS publications can be used for personal reading, research, and academic publication just so long as the ANS is cited as the source. Titles currently in the public domain – already have a home on HathiTrust. These volumes were OCR-scanned as part of the Google Books project.
