Open Access Journal: Diogenes

ISSN: 2054-6696
Launched in January 2014, Diogenes (ISSN 2054-6696) is a peer-review and open-access journal edited by the postgraduate students at the Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies, University of Birmingham. This collaboration of postgraduate students aims at providing a venue at which postgraduate students can further develop their research ideas and communicate them to a general audience.

The unique combination of research interests at the Centre brings together the often separate fields of Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies. We look forward to any article that actively engages with any of these fields, from universities in the UK and abroad.

It is published twice a year: in April and October.

Pleiades Help: Getting Coordinates for a Place

Getting Coordinates for a Place

Coordinate information is stored in Pleiades "location" resources, which are grouped inside the "place" resources. We also calculate "representative points" (centroids) for each place on the basis of the associated locations. You can get whichever of these values is best for your purposes.
Portion of a place page, showing the location of the representative point and the clickable list of locations. 
Pleiades "place resources", e.g., are essentially containers for information about notional places (see further our Conceptual Overview). The maps on each place pull their coordinates from any "location resources" that have been assigned to that place. You'll see links to these under the "Locations" heading. If you click on a location there, you'll see information about the associated coordinates (points, lines, polygons), displayed in GeoJSON format.

For each Pleiades place resource, we calculate a "representative point" as well. This point -- which is the centroid of all associated locations -- is prominently displayed on the place page and rendered in the map on the place page with a distinctive orange circle. You can easily copy the representative point coordinates by selecting the "copy-to-clipboard" icon that appears immediately after the latitude and longitude coordinate pair under the "Representative Point" heading on the place page.

You can also download all of our data here: The places tables include "reprLong", "reprLat" and "reprLatLong" columns which hold the coordinates of a single representative point (centroid) for a place. If you'd just like the agreed upon, single representative latitude and longitude pair for a place, that's the best data source.

greek-accentuation 1.0.0 Released

greek-accentuation 1.0.0 Released
greek-accentuation has finally hit 1.0.0 with a couple more functions and a module layout change.
The library (which I’ve previously written about here) has been sitting on 0.9.9 for a while and I’ve been using it sucessfully in my inflectional morphology work for 18 months. There were, however, a couple of functions that lived in the inflectional morphology repos that really belonged in greek-accentuation. They have now been moved there.

There is syllabify.debreath which removes smooth breathing and replaces rough breathing with an h. And there is syllabify.rebreath which reverses this.

The other big change made is there are no-longer three top-level modules—everything is enclosed in a greek_accentuation package so instead of from syllabify import * you say from greek_accentuation.syllabify import *.

You can pip install greek-accentuation==1.0.0. The repo is at

greek-accentuation is made available under an MIT license.

Thanks to Kyle Johnson of the wonderful Classical Language Toolkit project for encouraging me to finally do the 1.0.0 release.

Online Catalogue of the Listed Archaeological Sites and Monuments of Greece

 [First posted in AWOL 26 February 2012, updated 27 July 2016]

Ongoing Catalogue of the Listed Archaeological Sites and Monuments of Greece

The Ongoing Catalogue of the Listed Archaeological Sites and Monuments of Greece is compiled and published since 1993 by the Directorate of the National Archive of Monuments of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Part of the greater project for the creation of an all-inclusive National Inventory of Monuments, it is a codification of all the official acts by which archaeological sites and monuments of the country have been designated and listed as such in the Government Gazette since 1921. Only immoveable monuments, archaeological sites and historic places that required a specific legal act of designation, demarcation and protection are included, as the Greek Law (3028/2002 “On the protection of antiquities and cultural heritage in general”) places all monuments and sites dating before 1830 under the protective auspices of the State automatically and without further legislative procedures. From its original printed form (more than 120 volumes), the Ongoing Catalogue has now developed into a modern digital database updated regularly and accessible over the Internet at The database holds more than 10.000 entries related to over 18.000 sites and monuments designated by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Visitors of the Ongoing Catalogue’s web site can search (in Greek) specific acts of designation, monuments or sites by name, geographical location, and state of ownership or administrative authority. Free keyword search is also available. All content is intended merely for informational purposes; only the original statutes published in the corresponding Issues of the Government Gazette have legal value.

THV (Thesaurus Herculanensium Voluminum)  (new-beta_01)
Il progetto THV (Thesaurus Herculanensium Voluminum) è nato con lo scopo di creare uno strumento informatico per la ricerca sui testi custoditi nei papiri greci ercolanesi.

Sarà possibile effettuare ricerche di parole o parte di esse per opera, per autore o su tutto il corpus che verrà, periodicamente, arricchito e aggiornato. Per gli studiosi, inoltre, sarà possibile intervenire direttamente sui testi aggiungendo le nuove letture.
Ogni volta che saranno disponibili nuovi testi da consultare verrà data notizia della immissione su questo stesso sito, sul sito del CISPE “Marcello Gigante” e nella Papy-List.

Testi immessi:
PHerc. 182, 1005, 1027, 1065, 1507 sono a cura di Matilde Fiorillo
PHerc. 1055, 1251, 1425, 1418, 1431 (coll.1-10), 1021 sono a cura di Antonio Parisi
PHerc. 336/1150 è a cura di Mariacristina Fimiani
Il progetto è stato ideato e realizzato da Gianluca Del Mastro col sostegno del Centro Internazionale per lo studio dei Papiri Ercolanesi "Marcello Gigante" a cui si deve il finanziamento del software.
L'immissione dei dati è curata e finanaziata dal CISPE in collaborazione con la cattedra di Filologia Classica I dell'Università di Würzburg

News from the Corpus of Mesopotamian Anti-witchcraft Rituals Project (CMAwR)

News from the Corpus of Mesopotamian Anti-witchcraft Rituals Project (CMAwR)
This year two volumes of Mesopotamian anti-witchcraft lore have appeared:
- Tzvi Abusch, The Magical Ceremony Maqlû (Ancient Magic and Divination 10), Leiden – Boston: Brill, 2016.
- Tzvi Abusch – Daniel Schwemer – Mikko Luukko – Greta Van Buylaere, Corpus of Mesopotamian Anti-witchcraft Rituals, vol. 2 (Ancient Magic and Divination 8/2), Leiden – Boston: Brill, 2016.

Respecting Brill’s moving wall, all the texts edited in these volumes will eventually be presented online within the framework of Oracc.

At present, CMAwRo ( comprises the texts edited in Tzvi Abusch - Daniel Schwemer, Corpus of Mesopotamian Anti-witchcraft Rituals, vol. 1 (Ancient Magic and Divination 8/1), Leiden - Boston: Brill, 2011. A pdf-file with corrections and additions to this volume can be found at: On this page you can also consult a list of additional manuscripts to previously edited texts. The addenda to texts from vol. 1 are being integrated online at Oracc’s CMAwRo.

In 2017, the texts of vol. 2 and their addenda will become available in the same place. The additional manuscripts to volumes 1 and 2 will be included in the final volume of Anti-witchcraft Rituals (CMAwR 3; AMD 8/3) that we are currently working on. It will be published in 2019.

At the moment, the Critical Catalogue of Mesopotamian Anti-witchcraft Rituals (CCMAwR; encompasses information on the tablets published in CMAwR vol. 1 and 2 and in Tzvi Abusch’s Maqlû. Especially worth noting is the recent online prepublication of Daniel Schwemer’s hand-copies of most of the Maqlû manuscripts as part of the Critical Catalogue.

General information on Mesopotamian witchcraft, including information on the use of CMAwRo and the Bibliography of Mesopotamian Magic, can be found at

CCMAwR, CMAwRo, and CMAwR, vol. 2, were created as part of the DFG-funded project Corpus babylonischer Rituale und Beschwörungen gegen Schadenzauber: Edition, lexikalische Erschließung, historische und literarische Analyse, directed by Daniel Schwemer at the University of Würzburg.

Karnak (v 0.1.5): Projet d'index global des inscriptions des temples de Karnak

[First posted in AWOL 9 June 2013, updated 25 July 2016]

Karnak (v 0.1.5)  
Projet d'index global des inscriptions des temples de Karnak

3676 documents accessibles sur 7654 documents uniques dans le projet.
1676 scènes, 14 stèles, 114 éléments statuaires

Télécharger l’Inventaire des monuments, objets, scènes et inscriptions des temples de Karnak.

Lancé en janvier 2013, le projet Karnak (CNRS, USR 3172 - CFEETK / UMR 5140, Équipe ENiM - Programme « Investissement d’Avenir » ANR-11-LABX-0032-01 Labex ARCHIMEDE) a pour ambition d’organiser et de rendre accessible la documentation textuelle issue des temples de Karnak.
Ce travail est fondé sur un dépouillement exhaustif des documents et inscriptions de Karnak collationnées sur l’original. Chaque document reçoit un numéro d’identifiant unique (KIU : Karnak Identifiant Unique) lors de l’intégration à la base de données. Toute la richesse des archives du CFEETK (photographies, fac-similés, etc.) est exploitée par le projet Karnak, directement connecté à la base de données ArchéoGrid Karnak et à la bibliographie en ligne du CFEETK.
Étroitement lié au projet Dictionnaire Permanent de l’Égyptien Ancien (DPEA) développé par l’équipe d’égyptologie de l’UMR 5140 (CNRS-Université Montpellier III-Paul Valéry), le projet Karnak offrira un outil d’accès direct au riche corpus des inscriptions de Karnak (hiéroglyphiques, hiératiques et démotiques). Toutes les informations relatives à un document (KIU) seront accessibles à partir d’une notice unique. Celle-ci comportera l’édition typographique de l’inscription ainsi que sa translittération, l’ensemble des photographies, fac-similés et tout autre document d’archives associé.
Cet outil en ligne, hébergé sur les serveurs de l’IN2P3, autorisera ainsi des recherches directes dans le contenu des notices et dans les inscriptions hiéroglyphiques par le biais de la translittération. Il fournira en outre divers indices permettant des recherches multicritères (noms des divinités, épithètes divines, toponymes, ethniques et lieux de cultes, éléments de titulatures, anthroponymes, éléments prosopographiques et vocabulaire des inscriptions).

Ancient Numismatics News from NUMISHARE

ANS coins from RIC 6-10 published to OCRE, and other updates
Following the release of volumes 6, 7, 8, and 10 to OCRE, we have republished our coins from these volumes to link them into the newly-published coin type URIs. This represents an addition of more than 17,000 physical specimens of late Roman coinage into OCRE, including photographs for more than 3,000 of these (and photographic gaps from previous volumes of RIC). There are now 36,000 Roman imperial coins from the ANS collection in OCRE, and 60,000 in total from all our partners. Including CRRO and PELLA, there are just under 100,000 physical coins aggregated by's SPARQL endpoint.

In addition to these coins, the Portable Antiquities Scheme provided access to several hundred imperial coins linked to OCRE URIs. The PAS had previously linked its entire collection of Republican coins (nearly 1,000) into CRRO, but the inclusion of imperial material in OCRE is a watershed moment for the study of Roman numismatics. These are the first few hundred of potentially hundreds of thousands of coins published in their database, each with attested findspots. This will have a dramatic effect on geographic analysis of ancient monetary circulation and trade.

The Harvard Art Museums API was also reprocessed. Harvard's coverage of late Roman coinage is quite good, and their contribution to OCRE has more than doubled to 1,300 coins.

CAMERA KALAUREIA An Archaeological Photo-Ethnography | Μια αρχαιολογική φωτο-εθνογραφία by Yannis Hamilakis & Fotis Ifantidis

CAMERA KALAUREIA An Archaeological Photo-Ethnography | Μια αρχαιολογική φωτο-εθνογραφία by Yannis Hamilakis & Fotis Ifantidis.
170 pages; illustrated in full colour throughout. Full text in English and Greek. Available both in print and Open Access.
ISBN 9781784914141. 
How can we find alternative, sensorially rich and affective ways of engaging with the material past in the present?

How can photography play a central role in archaeological narratives, beyond representation and documentation?

This photo-book engages with these questions, not through conventional academic discourse but through evocative creative practice. The book is, at the same time, a site guide of sorts: a photographic guide to the archaeological site of the Sanctuary of Poseidon in Kalaureia, on the island of Poros, in Greece.

Ancient and not-so-ancient stones, pine trees that were “wounded” for their resin, people who lived amongst the classical ruins, and the tensions and the clashes with the archaeological apparatus and its regulations, all become palpable, affectively close and immediate.

Furthermore, the book constitutes an indirect but concrete proposal for the adoption of archaeological photo-ethnography as a research as well as public communication tool for critical heritage studies, today.

Hale and Buck: A Latin Grammar

Hale and Buck: A Latin Grammar


Hale and Buck's A Latin Grammar was first published by Ginn and Company in 1903. This edition is a collation of the two different versions of the original that I am aware of, hereafter referred to as versions A and B.

Editorial practices

Throughout I have tried to emulate the typographical conventions of the original fairly closely, but I have not hesitated to depart from them where convenient. Most such changes can pass without comment, but one perhaps requires some justification. In the original, there are many instances of paragraphs that are set in a smaller type than the main text, for example, 269 a and 270 a, b. An examination of the changes made in version B reveals that many of them are similarly reduced in size, which makes me think that most if not all such passages represent changes made in galleys. In other words, I believe the smaller typeface was used solely (or at least primarily) in order to make room for late additions to the page rather than to indicate that this material is somehow of less importance. Especially in view of the absence of any indication by the authors that they attach any such meaning to variation in type size, I have not tried to preserve such variations. (It's possible, of course, that the smaller type size does carry meaning in some cases, and there is sufficient variation in style to foster doubt. But if so, I'm unable to distinguish the cases.)
