Bulletin de liaison de la céramique égyptienne 31

Cette nouvelle livraison du Bulletin de liaison de la céramique égyptienne (BCE 31) présente dans une première partie l’actualité de la recherche avec son « Parcours régional ». Il s’enrichit cette année encore de l’apport de travaux archéologiques récents. Les deux premiers articles concernent le littoral méditerranéen et offrent des synthèses céramiques chronotypologiques, associées à des analyses pétrographiques. Le premier caractérise les productions amphoriques des époques ptolémaïque et romaine produites sur les rives du lac Mariout (cf. Mai Abdelgawad, Assem Bahnasy, Valérie Pichot, Aude Simony). Grâce aux exemplaires mis au jour à Taposiris Magna, le second article recherche l’origine d’une amphore importée à partir de la fin de l’époque romaine, au IIIe s. apr. J.-C., appelée Proto-Late Roman 1/Proto-LR1 (cf. Julie Marchand, Joachim Le Bomin, Paul Reynolds).

Les autres contributions présentent un mobilier céramique spécifique et sont ordonnées suivant la géographie : une étude synthétique de la céramique néolithique de la fin du Ve millénaire au début du IVe millénaire du site de Samara dans le Delta (cf. Frédéric Guyot, Christiane Hochstrasser-Petit), la présentation d’assemblages de céramiques de l’Ancien Empire provenant de contextes archéologiques spécifiques – magasins et habitats – mis au jour dans le complexe funéraire de Rêdjedef à Abou Rawash (cf. Sylvie Marchand), une étude fonctionnelle de céramiques funéraires du Nouvel Empire des fouilles de Dachour Nord (cf. Kazumitsu Takahashi), une évaluation du mobilier céramique des époques ptolémaïque et romaine mis au jour pendant la fouille ancienne du bain grec du Serapéum de la ville de Krokodilopolis au Fayoum (cf. Yahya Mahmoud), la présentation du mobilier céramique d’une tombe datée  de la XVIIIdynastie située au Ouadi 300 dans la région thébaine (cf. Sherif Abdelmonein), une étude iconographique des plats d’offrandes en terre cuite du Moyen Empire découverts dans la nécropole de Qubbet el-Hawa (cf. Cristina Lechuga Ibanez, José Manuel Alba Gomez), enfin la céramique décorée peinte d’époque ptolémaïque du site de Ghozza dans le désert Oriental (cf. Jennifer Gates-Foster, Melanie Godsey).

La seconde partie de l’ouvrage comprend une première étude sur un vase céramique rare, daté du début de l’Ancien Empire, fonctionnant sans doute à la manière d’un arrosoir (cf. Ashraf Senussi, Zeinab Suleiman). Enfin, le dernier article propose un cadre méthodologique à l’usage des archéologues sur l’étude des traces d’usage sur les récipients céramiques (cf. Pauline Debes, Axelle Brémont).

This new issue of the Bulletin de liaison de la céramique égyptienne (BCE 31) presents the current state of research with its “Parcours regional” (regional survey) in the first part. The quite substantial first article is a multidisciplinary study of amphorae workshops on the shores of Lake Mariout during the Hellenistic and Roman periods (cf. M. Abdelgawad, A. Bahnasy, V. Pichot, A. Simony). The volume is again enriched this year with recent, and most often still unpublished, archaeological work, such as the presentation of Neolithic pottery from Samara in the Delta (cf. F. Guyot, C. Hochstrasser-Petit), and a synthesis of the ceramics from the beginning of the XVIIIth Dynasty from excavations in the necropolis of “Wadi 300” in the Theban area (cf. S. Abdelmonein). Several contributions to the volume present specific ceramic assemblages, including the chrono-typological and technical study of the Proto-LRA 1 amphorae from Taposiris Magna (cf. J. Marchand, J. Le Bomin, P. Reynolds), the iconography of ceramic offering tables from the Qubbet el-Hawa necropolis (cf. C. Lechuga Ibanez), and a study of painted ceramics of the Hellenistic period from the site of Ghozza in the Eastern Desert (cf. Jennifer Gates-Foster, Melanie Godsey). The final article describes the funerary pottery of the New Kingdom, taking the example of a tomb in North Dashur (cf. K. Takahashi). Unpublished pottery from earlier excavations is also studied through the publication not only of part of the Serapeum pottery from ancient Krokodilopolis in Fayum (cf. Y. Mahmoud), but also of pottery found in the storerooms and settlement of the Old Kingdom royal funerary complex at Abu Rawash (cf. S. Marchand).

The second part of the book is entitled “Études” (studies). The first study attempts to determine the function of a type of ceramic vase from the Old Kingdom (cf. A. Senussi, Z. Suleiman). The second study offers a methodological framework for the analysis of traces of use in ceramic vessels, taking the example of Predynastic ceramics (cf. P. Debes, A. Brémont).

Semitic-Series.jpg

Cambridge Semitic Language and Cultures is a new book series in collaboration with the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Cambridge. This series includes philological and linguistic studies of Semitic languages, editions of Semitic texts, and studies of Semitic cultures. Titles in the series will cover all periods, traditions and methodological approaches to the field. The editorial board comprises Geoffrey Khan, Aaron Hornkohl, and Esther-Miriam Wagner.

This is the first Open Access book series in the field; it combines the high peer-review and editorial standards with the fair Open Access model offered by OBP. Open Access (that is, making texts free to read and reuse) helps spread research results and other educational materials to everyone everywhere, not just to those who can afford it or have access to well-endowed university libraries. Copyrights stay where they belong, with the authors. Authors are encouraged to secure funding to offset the publication costs and thereby sustain the publishing model, but if no institutional funding is available, authors are not charged for publication. Any grant secured covers the actual costs of publishing and is not taken as profit. In short: we support publishing that respects the authors and serves the public interest.

The Bible in the Bowls: A Catalogue of Biblical Quotations in Published Jewish Babylonian Aramaic Magic Bowls

  • Daniel James Waller
The Bible in the Bowls represents a complete catalogue of Hebrew Bible quotations found in the published corpus of Jewish Babylonian Aramaic magic bowls. As our only direct epigraphic witnesses to the Hebrew Bible from late antique Babylonia, the bowls are uniquely placed to contribute to research on the (oral) transmission of the biblical text in late antiquity; the pre-Masoretic Babylonian vocalisation tradition; the formation of the liturgy and the early development of the Jewish prayer book; the social locations of biblical knowledge in late antique Babylonia and socio-religious typologies of the bowls; and the dynamics of scriptural citation in ancient Jewish magic.

The Bible in the Bowls represents a complete catalogue of Hebrew Bible quotations found in the published corpus of Jewish Babylonian Aramaic magic bowls. As our only direct epigraphic witnesses to the Hebrew Bible from late antique Babylonia, the bowls are uniquely placed to contribute to research on the (oral) transmission of the biblical text in late antiquity; the pre-Masoretic Babylonian vocalisation tradition; the formation of the liturgy and the early development of the Jewish prayer book; the social locations of biblical knowledge in late antique Babylonia and socio-religious typologies of the bowls; and the dynamics of scriptural citation in ancient Jewish magic. In a number of cases, the bowls also contain the earliest attestations of biblical verses not found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Pre-dating the next available evidence by four to five centuries, the bowls are a valuable resource for biblical text critics.

By making these valuable witnesses to the Hebrew Bible easily available to scholars, The Bible in the Bowls is designed to facilitate further research by linguists, liturgists, biblical text critics, and students of Jewish magic. It collates and transcribes each biblical verse as it appears in the published bowls, furnishes details of the bowls’ publication, and notes various features of interest. The catalogue is also accompanied by an accessible introduction that briefly introduces the incantation bowls, surveys their deployment of scripture in light of their magical goals, and discusses the orthography of the quotations and what this can tell us about the encounter with the biblical text in late antique Babylonia.

Engraved Gems and Propaganda in the Roman Republic and under Augustus

book cover 

Archaeopress Roman Archaeology 65

Engraved Gems and Propaganda in the Roman Republic and under Augustus deals with small, but highly captivating and stimulating artwork – engraved gemstones. Although in antiquity intaglios and cameos had multiple applications (seals, jewellery or amulets), the images engraved upon them are snapshots of people's beliefs, ideologies, and everyday occupations. They cast light on the self-advertising and propaganda actions performed by Roman political leaders, especially Octavian/Augustus, their factions and other people engaged in the politics and social life of the past.

Gems can show both general trends (the specific showpieces like State Cameos) as well as the individual and private acts of being involved in politics and social affairs, mainly through a subtle display of political allegiances, since they were objects of strictly personal use. They enable us to analyse and learn about Roman propaganda and various social behaviours from a completely different angle than coins, sculpture or literature.

The miniaturism of ancient gems is in inverse proportion to their cultural significance. This book presents an evolutionary model of the use of engraved gems from self-presentation (3rd-2nd century BC) to personal branding and propaganda purposes in the Roman Republic and under Augustus (until 14 AD). The specific characteristics of engraved gems, their strictly private character and the whole array of devices appearing on them are examined in respect to their potential propagandistic value and usefulness in social life.

The wide scope of this analysis provides a comprehensive picture covering many aspects of Roman propaganda and a critical survey of the overinterpretations of this term in regard to the glyptic art. The aim is the incorporation of this class of archaeological artefacts into the well-established studies of Roman propaganda, as well as the Roman society in general, brought about by discussion of the interconnections with ancient literary sources as well as other categories of Roman art and craftsmanship, notably coins but also sculpture and relief.

Roman Frontier Archaeology – in Britain and Beyond: Papers in Honour of Paul Bidwell Presented on the Occasion of the 30th Annual Conference of the Arbeia Society 

book cover

Archaeopress Roman Archaeology 92

 

Roman Frontier Archaeology – in Britain and beyond gathers contributions by some 30 leading archaeologists and historians in honour of Paul Bidwell. In a wide-ranging career Paul has been one of the leading excavators and pottery specialists of his generation, admired for his ground-breaking work both in the south-west and the military north of Roman Britain.

Contributions reflect the wide range of Paul Bidwell’s interests. Studies of samian pottery use, coins, carved stone pinecones, multi-piece bone dice and agricultural strategies shed light on the economy and everyday life of a Roman frontier province. For the civil southern part of the province there are studies of place-names and various aspects of the public baths of the Roman cities, as well as the impact of changing sea-levels on coastal topography. A number of contributions focus on the problems of the military north and Hadrian’s Wall, including studies of the nineteenth century antiquarian pioneers and assessments of the purpose of the Wall, the possibility of destructive attacks by an enemy, the way in which Roman forts were designed, and the use of Iron Age tradition military gear by the Roman army. The papers also take us beyond Britannia to consider developments on and beyond Rome’s Eastern, Danube and North African frontiers.

The collection will be essential reading for anyone with an interest in either the civil or military aspects of Roman Britain, or the frontiers of the Roman empire.

Paul Bidwell (1949-2022)
Tragically Paul Bidwell died after a short illness in November 2022 soon after being presented with this book by his friends and colleagues. What was conceived as a gesture to honour Paul has become, in effect, a monument to one of the most respected Roman archaeologists of his generation, and a testament to the wide range of his archaeological interests and achievements.
