The New Homer Multitext Manuscript Browser

A New Manuscript Browser
We recently noted that the old Manuscript Browser application, which lives at http://chs75.harvard.edu was going away. That application, written in 2007, had fallen behind the times.

There is a new Manuscript Browser online at http://folio.furman.edu/rumba.
This application offers several paths of entry to our collection of manuscript images:

  • A user can request a particular folio (by number and side, “recto” or “verso”), or a particular manuscript to see all available images of that manuscript.
  • A user can request a particular passage of the Iliad (by Book and Line), and see every manuscript folio on which that line appears, and thence to go a particular folio and its images.
  • A user can request a particular passage of the Iliad (by Book and Line) and a particular manuscript, to go to the page where that line appears.

This new application represents another experiment in our project of rapid development of end-user applications and tools based on an RDF graph of canonical citations. People interested in this kind of thing can do “view source” on any page to see the underlying data, which is simply XML output of SparQL queries.

Gratia Amicorum

Our embrace of RDF for structuring and organizing the HMT’s data was greatly accelerated thanks to the Linked Ancient World Data Initiative [LAWDI], and their NEH-funded workshop held at ISAW in 2012; we are extremely grateful to the NEH and to Sebastian Heath, Tom Elliott, Hugh Cayless, Sean Gillies, and the other organizers, faculty, and participants in that event. It led directly to one of the most exciting and productive years in the life of the Homer Multitext.

Digital Corpus of Sanskrit

DCS: Digital Corpus of Sanskrit
DCS, the Digital Corpus of Sanskrit, is a searchable collection of lemmatized Sanskrit texts. It offers free internet access to a part of the database of the linguistic program SanskritTagger, which has been under constant development since 1999.  
DCS is designed for research in Sanskrit linguistics and philology. Users can search for lexical units and their collocations in a corpus of about 3.250.000 manually tagged words in 430.000 sentences. In addition, DCS generates distributional key values and performs statistical tests that can be used to assess the distribution of lexical units from a chronological perspective. The digital corpus offers two points of entry for the philological research:
  1. Lexical units can be retrieved from the dictionary via a query interface or a dictionary page. For each lexical unit contained in the corpus, DCS offers the complete set of references and a statistical evaluation based on historical principles.
    More about the query interface, the dictionary and the detail evaluation of lexical units
  2. As an alternative, philological research can start from the interlinear lexical analysis that accompanies each text contained in the database.
    Information about the text interface
As a first step, it is recommended to use either the query or the dictionary page to search for lexical units or to have a look at the text collection. These pages can also be accessed using the main menu at the top of this page. The help center gives a structured and detailed introduction in the functions of the DCS

Open Access Journal: Trypillian Civilization Journal

Trypillian Civilization Journal
ISSN 2155-871X
Trypillian Civilization is an archaeological name for the Neolithic culture that existed on the territory of present-day Ukraine. This culture is also known as Cucuteni on the territory of Romania.  The real self-name for this culture is not established or agreed between scientists, but some researchers consider this culture to be the ancient Aratta.

Trypillian culture was discovered in the year 1897 near the small village of Trypillia south of Kyiv, Ukraine) by archaeologist Vikenty Khvoika. He named this new and unknown to the world culture - The Trypillian Civilization.  From that moment on, the territory of Ukraine became a homeland to one of the most ancient civilizations - The Trypillian Civilization, which flourished on her territory between approximately 8,000  to 5,000 years back in history.

Independently this culture was discovered on the territory of Romania near village Cucuteni by Teodor T. Burada, and in year 1889 it was presented on conference in Paris.

For our purposes we are going to use name Trypillia-Cucuteni as internationally recognized term for this culture. When the subject of the article is about studies related to the Ukrainian territory only it is accepted to use name Trypillia for short, which is also generally accepted among Ukrainian researches.

The main purpose of this Internet site is to educate the world about The Trypillian Civilization and to stimulate multidisciplinary study of the origin of Trypillian people through the collections of articles, books, reproductions of artifacts, videos, lists of references, numerous links and other educational material.

Welcome to the studies and the discovery of the Trypillian Civilization!

Monuments of the Hittites
http://www.hittitemonuments.com/topbanner.jpg
Monuments of the Hittites is an experimental site prepared totally as a hobby. My aim is to build a page with references to all major Hittite monuments. The locations listed below are the sites that has one or more monument belonging to the times of Hittite civilization. The text list below divides the sites in to two groups by date. This is definetely not a complete list, nor the listed sites may have complete information. Some pages are still missing information or images. I will continue to update the pages with more information. I would appreciate any comments, feedback, and information. -Tayfun Bilgin

Open Access Database: Croato-Aegyptica Electronica

 First posted in AWOL 22 April 2011. Updated (new host, new URLs) 29 June 2013]

Croato-Aegyptica Electronica
http://www.hrstud.unizg.hr/sites/cae/slike/03.jpg
PROJECT GOALS:

To build an aimed and selected database of relevant monuments pertaining to cultural influences of Egyptian civilization in the Croatian historical area based on the institutional and private collections in Croatia. 


In initial phase of project development, the plan is to process the Egyptological monuments kept in the Egyptian, Ancient and Numismatic collections of the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb (AMZ). Simultaneously with processing the monuments from the AMZ, we plan to process all the artifacts kept in other museum collections in Croatia and to introduce the results into the database. After processing the collections of museum institutions in Zagreb (the Mimara Museum in Zagreb, the Museum of Contemporary Art - the Benko Horvat Collection, the Museum of the City of Zagreb), we plan to process scientifically the artifacts kept in museums outside of Zagreb (the Dubrovnik museums - the Archaeological Museum of Dubrovnik, the Archaelogical Museum of Split, the Archaeological Museum of Istria in Pula, the Archaeological Museum of Zadar, the Museum of Slavonia in Osijek, the Museum of the City of Varaždin, and variety of town and regional museums with minor collections) that have not yet been interpreted and processed, and to introduce the results into the database.
There are more than 3100 artifacts pertaining to the Egyptian civilization kept in the Archaological Museum of Zagreb, important cultural and museum institution of the city of Zagreb and Croatia. The bulk of collection consists of the Egyptian collection by the Austrian undermarshall Franz Koller that was bought for the National Museum in Zagreb in 1868. It comprises about 2300 artifacts of Egyptian origin. Next to the Egyptian collection as a main part of the Egyptological inventory of the Archaeological Museum of Zagreb, there are many other artifacts related to the history of Egypt kept in the museum. There are about 500 pieces of Ptolemaic coinage, and the coins from the Roman era minted in Alexandria kept in the Numismatic collection. The Antique collection is comprised of the statues, statuettes and epigraphic monuments related to the Egyptian cults of Greco-Roman era, originating from the Mediterranean or from the Croatian historical area. During the last 150 years, the collections have been supplemented by a variety of smaller or larger buys and donations by private individuals, so the number of artifacts increases constantly. 

There are also smaller or larger collections of Egyptian origin in other museums in Croatia. The most important collections according to the number of artifacts are to be found in the Archaeological Museum of Dubrovnik - the Dubrovnik museums (197), the Archaeological Museum of Split (84), the Mimara Museum in Zagreb (503), the Archaeological Museum of Istria in Pula (38), the Collection of the St. Euphemia monastery in Kampor on the island of Rab (14), the Archaological collection of The Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb (11), the Archaeological Museum of Zadar (11), The Museum of Slavonia in Osijek (10), the Museum of the City of Varaždin (6), the Franciscan monastery in Sinj (6), and in about dozen more town and regional museums with only one or two artifacts. According to our knowledge, there are 4031 artifacts in museum institutions and almost 1000 artifacts in private collections in Croatia. The data on each collection are published in the book entitled Egypt in Croatia by Mladen Tomorad (Barbat, Zagreb, 2003).
CILJ PROJEKTA:

Izgraditi ciljanu i selekcioniranu bazu relevantne spomeničke građe, vezane uz kulturološke utjecaje egipatske civilizacije na hrvatskom povijesnom prostoru, na temelju institucionalnih i privatnih zbirki u Hrvatskoj.


U prvoj inicijalnoj i razvojnoj fazi projekta, u planu je obrada egiptoloških spomenika koji se čuvaju u Egipatskoj, Antičkoj i Numizmatičkoj zbirci Arheološkog muzeja u Zagrebu (AMZ). Paralelno s obradom predmeta u AMZ planiramo obraditi i unijeti u bazu i sve obrađene predmete koji se čuvaju u drugim muzejskim zbirkama u Hrvatskoj. Nakon obrade zbirki muzejskih institucija u Zagrebu (Muzej Mimara u Zagrebu, Muzej suvremene umjetnosti - zbirka Benka Horvata, Muzej grada Zagreba), planiramo znastvenu obradu i unos onih predmeta koji do sada nisu interpretirani i obrađeni, a čuvaju se u muzejima izvan Zagreba (Dubrovački muzeji - Arheološki muzej Dubrovnik, Arheološki muzej u Splitu, Arheološki muzej Istre u Puli, Arheološki muzej u Zadru, Muzej Slavonije u Osijeku, Gradski muzej Varaždin i niz gradskih i područnih muzeja vrlo malim zbirkama). U Arheološkom muzeju u Zagrebu, važnoj kulturnoj muzejskoj instituciji grada Zagreba i Hrvatske, čuva se više od 3100 predmeta vezanih uz egipatsku civilizaciju. Glavninu zbirke čini egipatska zbirka austrijskog podmaršala Franza Kollera, koja je otkupljena za Narodni muzej u Zagrebu 1868. g. Ona se sastoji od oko 2300 predmeta egipatske provenijencije. Uz Egipatsku zbirku koja čini okosnicu egiptološkog fundusa Arheološkog muzeja u Zagrebu, u muzeju se danas čuva čitav niz drugih predmeta koji su svojom poviješću vezani uz prošlost Egipta. U Numizmatičkoj zbirci se tako čuva oko 500 primjeraka novca ptolomejskih vladara, zatim primjeraka novca rimskog razdoblja podrijetlom iz kovnice u Aleksandriji. Antička zbirka sadrži kipove, kipiće i epigrafske spomenike vezane uz egipatske kultove grčko-rimskog razdoblja podrijetlom s prostora Sredozemlja ili s prostora Hrvatske. Tijekom proteklih 150 godina zbirke su popunjavane čitavim nizom većih i manjih otkupa, darivanjem privatnih osoba pa se broj predmeta danas neprekidno povećava.

U ostalim muzejima u Hrvatskoj čuvaju se veće ili manje zbirke egipatske provenijencije. Po broju predmeta najvažnije su zbirke Muzeja Mimara u Zagrebu (503), Arheološkog muzeja Dubrovnik u sklopu Dubrovačkih muzeja (197), Arheološkog muzeja u Splitu (84), Arheološkog muzeja Istre u Puli (38), samostana sv. Eufemije u Kamporu na Rabu (14), arheološka zbirka Muzeja suvremene umjetnosti u Zagrebu (11), Arheološkog muzej u Zadru (11), Muzeja Slavonije u Osijeku (10), Gradskog muzeja Varaždin (6), Franjevačkog samostana u Sinju (6) i još desetak gradskih muzejskih i područnih muzeja u kojima se čuva svega nekoliko predmeta. Prema našim saznanjima u Hrvatskoj se nalazi 4031 predmet u muzejskim institucijama i gotovo 1000 predmeta u privatnim zbirkama. Podaci o pojedinim zbirkama objavljeni su u knjizi Egipat u Hrvatskoj, autor Mladen Tomorad (Barbat, Zagreb 2003.). Nekoliko sličnih projekata je u tijeku u inozemstvu, poput EMCP - Egyptologica. Museum Collection Project (voditelj: Gerhard H. de Knegt), Totenbuch project (voditelj: dr. Irmtraut Munro, Ägyptologisches Seminar der Universität Bonn) te nekoliko projekata pod okriljem CCER-a (Centre for Computer - aided Egyptological Research, Utrecht University) npr. Multilingual index of Egyptian treasures cd-roms, Prosopographia Aegypti, Links to the museums with Egyptian collections, što hrvatski projekt izravno povezuje sa suvremenim svjetskim kretanjima u egiptologiji. Početkom 2003. g. započeo je s radom The Global Egyptian Museum pod pokroviteljstvom Centra za kompjutorska pomognuta egiptološka istraživanja (Centre for Computer-aided Egyptological Research CCER) s oko 6,600 predmeta, a predviđa se da će krajem 2004. godine Virtualni muzej obuhvatiti oko 17,500 predmeta. U projekt su trenutno uključeni najznačajnije muzejske zbirke u svijetu, a uključenjem u ovaj projekt Hrvatska bi mogla pokazati veliku kulturnu vrijednost predmeta koji se čuvaju u domaćim muzejskim institucijama. Osobita vrijednost projekta Croato-Aegyptica electronica također je u tome što je riječ i o pionirskom pothvatu koji ujedno smjera revidirati i korigirati postojeće podatke objavljene u djelima kataloško-muzejskog karaktera domaćih i inozemnih autora, poput Šime Ljubića (Popis Arheološkog odjela Narodnog Zemaljskog Muzeja u Zagrebu, sv. I. - Egipatska sbirka, Zagreb 1889.) i Janine Monnet Saleh (Les antiquités égyptiennes de Zagreb. Catalogue raisonné des antiquités égyptiennes conservées au Musée Archéologique de Zagreb en Yougoslavie, Paris 1970.) koji i danas figuriraju kao relevantni.

Baza podataka, dostupna kroz različite medije, kao završni proizvod projekta jamčit će tuzemnim i inozemnim znanstvenim istraživačima i kulturnim ustanovama cjeloviti uvid u bogatstvo hrvatskog egiptološkog materijala, nudeći pritom praktično i brzo pretraživanje čitavog fundusa i prikaz podataka primjereniji najširoj publici.

Τhe journal ΤΕΚΜΗΡΙΑ, subtitled Contributions to the History of the Greek and Roman World, began publication in 1995 in Thessalonike, at the initiative of Ioannis Touloumakos, then Professor of Ancient History at the University of Thessalonike, Angelos Chaniotis, then Professor of Ancient Greek History at Heidelberg University, and Fritz Gschnitzer, Emeritus Professor at the same university. To date, eight volumes have been issued. The Centre for Greek and Roman Antiquity (K.E.Ρ.A.) has undertaken to continue publication of the journal ΤΕΚΜΗΡΙΑ. In this new phase of its existence as a peer reviewed open access journal, ΤΕΚΜΗΡΙΑ will continue to publish studies on Ancient Greek History, Epigraphy, Numismatics and Topography between the eighth century B.C. and the sixth century A.D. The emphasis will still be on the presentation of new materials and the editors hope to cover the Greek world in the broadest sense. The new editorial board consists of Dimitrios Pantermalis, Angelos Chaniotis, Charalampos Kritzas, Pantelis Nigdelis and Miltiades B. Hatzopoulos, while Angelos P. Matthaiou will serve as editor. As a Centre for Greek and Roman Antiquity (K.E.Ρ.A.) publication, ΤΕΚΜΗΡΙΑ will reflect the scholarly activity of the Centre’s research staff, but contributions by other Greek and foreign scholars are welcomed, provided they respond to the objectives outlined above. The journal will be issued annually. Contributions may be in Greek, English, French, German or Italian. Review articles are acceptable, but not simple book reviews. By visiting the journal’s website, contributors will have from now on the possibility to submit articles and book reviews.

Open Access Cuneiform Texts: ARCHIBAB

 [First posted in AWOL 12 February 2010. Updated most recently 27 June 2013]

ARCHIBAB Archives babyloniennes (XXe-XVIIe siècles av. J.C.)

La Mésopotamie entre 2000 à 1600 av. J.-C. a vu une véritable explosion dans l'usage de l'écrit, qui s'est traduite par la multiplication des archives et la transformation de leur nature. La civilisation babylonienne de cette période nous a ainsi fourni une des documentations les plus riches et les plus variées de toute l'Antiquité. Il s'agit d'une source d'un intérêt considérable pour l'ensemble des sciences humaines (histoire, histoire du droit, anthropologie, sciences de l'information et de la communication, etc.), mais sous-exploitée faute d'instruments de travail adéquats.
Les archives paléo-babyloniennes représentent plus de 31 000 textes dispersés dans près de 1200 publications. Ajoutons que le nombre de textes s'est accru considérablement durant les trois dernières décennies : en 1979, lorsque le tome 3 du Répertoire géographique des Textes Cunéiformes a été achevé, on disposait de 17 332 textes, soit 56 % du corpus actuel ! Cette disproportion est encore plus flagrante pour les textes de Mari : 3465 textes avaient été intégralement publiés en 1979, quand parut le répertoire ARMT XVI/1, contre 8666 aujourd'hui, soit seulement 40%. Précisément en raison de cette abondance de textes, personne ne s'était attelé à leur simple recensement depuis très longtemps. Il n'existe aucun catalogue des documents et la bibliographie est dispersée et difficile d'accès. Les très utiles instruments que sont la Keilschrift Bibliographie d'Orientalia et le Register de Archiv für Orientforschung ne la balisent que partiellement (et avec seulement une consultation par an, sur volumes imprimés). Beaucoup de textes sont seulement connus par des copies et n'ont jamais été édités. Par ailleurs, une bonne part de ces tablettes ont été retrouvées depuis un siècle et demi lors de fouilles illicites et se trouvent en outre dispersées de par le monde entre de nombreuses collections, publiques ou privées : non seulement leur contexte archéologique est inconnu mais l'unité des archives auxqelles elles appartenaient doit en outre être reconstituée.
La création d'un corpus numérique des documents d'archives paléo-babyloniens devenait urgent et le recours à l'informatique pour traiter et exploiter ces données s'est imposé d'emblée.

Late Old Babylonian Personal Names Index
By Seth Richardson



Welcome to the Late Old Babylonian Personal Names Index. This searchable file of personal names derives from cuneiform texts chiefly dating to the reigns of the last three kings of the First Dynasty of Babylon, 1683-1595 B.C. Version 3 indexes 14,315 unique attestations of personal names from almost 3,000 texts, including 4,678 entries from around 700 unpublished texts. All communications and questions about the Index should be referred to Seth Richardson at: seth1@uchicago.edu 


I would like to thank Tate Paulette, Monica Crews, Anna Steinhelper, and Amanda Wissler for their assistance in the preparation of the Index.
