Името на списанието (во превод "Состав") потекнува од големото откритие на професор М. Д. Петрушевски, кој во 1980 година (преиздадено во 1990 г.) во Скопје го објави својот превод на Аристотеловото дело „За поетиката“ (Περὶ ποητικῆς). Тој откри, дека во дефиницијата за трагедијата не стои изразот прочистување на страстите (κάθαρσις παθημάτων), или некоја друга синтагма, туку состав од дејства (σύστασις πραγμάτων), што предизвикуваат жал и страв, што е најважна характеристика на трагедијата.
Дека составот на делото од соодветни компоненти е основа за тоа да биде токму такво дело, на книжевно-теоретски и философски план покажа професор Елена Колева, во своето дело "Систаса на прагми" (Охрид, 1992), со што од книжевно-теоретски аспект го потврди лингвистичкото откритие на М. Д. Петрушевски.
Списанието е отворено за статии, резимеа на магистерски трудови, резимеа на докторски трудови, преводи од класични автори, пофалени/наградени семинарски работи, кратки белешки и прикази на книги од областите што ги покриваат класичните студии во поширока смисла на зборот: класична филологија, историја на стариот век, археологија, епиграфија, палеографија, и други области врзани за антиката, но и за нејзиниот континуум и наследство и дидактика на класичните дисциплини.
Членови на редакцијата на Systasis се членови на Здружението „Антика“ во соработка со колеги од регионот и Европа. Списанието се уредува двапати годишно.
The name of our periodical, Systasis, meaning 'a composition', relates to the great discovery made by our Professor M. D. Petruševski, who published his translation of Aristotle's Poetics (Περὶ ποητικῆς) in Skopje, the Republic of Macedonia, in 1990. He emended the phrase in Aristotle's definition of tragedy, usually known as κάϑαρσις παϑημάτων, to σύστασις πραγμάτων, i.e. 'a composition of acts' that cause fear and compassion—the essential characteristics of tragedy.

The thesis that the composition of the components of a deed determine literary genre was elaborated on theoretical and philosophical grounds by Professor Elena Koleva in her work 'The composition of Acts', published in Ohrid in 1992. In this book, she developed the linguistic discovery of M. D. Petruševski on literary theoretical grounds.

Тhe e-journal is edited by the members of Antika, the Association of Classical Philologists of the Republic of Macedonia, in collaboration with colleagues from the region and throughout Europe. It is open for the publication of articles, summaries of master’s theses, summaries of doctoral theses, translations of classical authors, academic papers adjudged of distinction and book reviews on subjects from the wider range of classical studies: classical philology, history of the ancient world, archaeology, epigraphy, paleography, and other subjects related to antiquity, as well as to the continuity, heritage and didactics of classical disciplines.

Sexual initiative in Aristaenetus' Erotic Letters(1-24)
The epistolary collection entitled Erotic Letters attributed to Aristaenetus was probably written in the 6th century A.D. The letters depict various sexual liaisons; the protagonists are single, married, engaged in extra-marital affairs, in relationships with slaves or courtesans etc.
The focus of the research is on the overall representation of lovers’ sexuality. The author investigates which sex is more likely to show sexual interest, to seduce, to initiate foreplay or sexual activities and to create the opportunity for their achievement. The results are placed into a wider context by the comparison with gender relations in Alciphron’s, Aelian’s and Philostratus’ collections. The final goal of the paper is to point to (potential) differences in the representation of male and female sexual agency and sexuality in general throughout the literary subgenre from Alciphron to Aristaenetus.

Легисакциската (граѓанската) судска постапка во античкиот Рим(25-36)
Легисакциската постапка претставувала најстара римска граѓанска судска постапка. Настанувањето на оваа постапка го означило почетокот на искоренувањето на самопомошта како облик за заштита на субјективните права и воспоставувањето на системот за заштита на приватните права од страна на државата. Легисакциската постапка како прва државно организирана судска постапка била усна, едностепена и формална. Како таква покажувала специфични особености во перидот на Кралството и Републиката во античкиот Рим.

Notes on Benče manuscript and the Paleologan art inspiration(37-54)
Аntique allegoric figures are part of the renewed interest towards classicism in Palaeologan art. This is not so common to find in medieval illuminations coming from the region and the cultural centers of medieval Macedonia. The Four Gospels (Tetrevangelium) from the church of Holy Archangels in Benče, Makedonski Brod, discovered in 1988 is one of the rare examples of manuscripts that contain illuminations with renewed interest towards classicism. It is written in semi uncial script and contains 360 folios. Each Gospel is preceded by a full page masterly illumination of the corresponding Evangelist. Their style has been described as neo byzantine and Balkan style in the short descriptions accompanying the booklets regarding this manuscript. The colors used are light green, red, blue and light brown that resembles gold. Each evangelist has next to him the image of the muse, the inspiration represented as small female figure with a kind of shall making an arch above her head. The background is painted in yellowish-orange color. The architecture and the thrones follow the fashion of the late 13th and 14th centuries. St. John and his pupil resemble the saints depicted on the pendentives of Holy Archangels, Lesnovo. The wall behind St. Mark has light drawing of cat like-human face. The roof of one of the buildings in this illumination is semi barrel. The time when the manuscript was written is probably when archbishop Prochorus was the head of the Ohrid Archbishopric (ca.1525-1550).

Multa multat (Pl. Rud. 20)(55-64)
The present article focuses on the 20-th verse of the prologue of Plautus' Rudens and in particular on the phrase multa multat. This obvious figura etymologica is analyzed as a more complex wordplay based on the double meaning of the word multa, as a form of the Latin word for "fine" and as a form of the adjective multus, "many, much". The semantic relations with the other words in the immediate context are also discussed, as well as the possible etymological connection between multa, "fine" and multus, "many, much". It is concluded that Plautus' play on the words multa, multō and multus is valuable not only as an early literary attestation of the word for "fine", but also as a possible evidence for its etymology.

Demus pro spectaculis spectacula. The role of delectatio in Augustine's preaching activity(65-80)
In this article, I focus, first and foremost, on aesthetic or entertaining aspects of Augustine’s preaching activity. This aspect of his speech is, in fact, closely connected with delectare which, according to Cicero, constitutes one of the three major tasks of an orator. So my argumentation here is based on Augustine’s homiletic theory presented in Book IV of his De doctrina christiana. Against the background of some examples taken from his exegetical homilies and from his sermons I try to show that the entertaining function of Augustine’s words is in the service of his Christian teaching. The moderate style as a main source of delectatio is especially convenient when the preacher talks about things which his audience already know with the view of creating pleasure in talking about them. The advantage of this style is that even uneducated people can enjoy such embellished speech and might be also moved by it. To pursue this task Augustine gets use of several images among which the image of a theatre stands out. In order to lead his faithful away from theatrical performances he transforms his sermon into a Christisan show.

Брачен договор од Римски Египет (P.OXY. X.1273)(81-89)
Овој текст претставува кратко претставување на брачните договори од Египет и превод на P.OXY. X.1273, еден од многуте предбрачни договори пронајдени во Оксиринх кон крајот на деветнаесеттиот век. Важноста на договорот се состои во тоа што припаѓа на периодот од средината на третиот век, за разлика од другите договори што се претежно од првиот или вториот век од н. е. Тоа значи дека договорот е направен во период кога сите слободни жители во Империјата имаат римско граѓанство, па според тоа треба да содржи елементи што се својствени за римското брачно право. Но, освен гентилните имиња Аврелии и стипулаторната формула, која е вообичаена во договорите, договорот во основа е грчки, не многу различен од оние во периодот на Птолемаидите.
