Papers on Archaeology of the Leiden Museum of Antiquities (PALMA)






Papers on Archaeology of the Leiden Museum of Antiquities (PALMA) is a series of monographs by the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden (Netherlands).
The museum was founded in 1818 and houses important collections of Egyptian, Near Eastern, Classical, and Dutch archaeology. The Leiden Museum has always been active in the field of research, including excavations, and is also known for its special exhibitions, some of which travel around the world. PALMA is designed to reflect all these activities.

Outline of Gāndhārī Grammar

Outline of Gāndhārī Grammar 
Stefan Baums 
(29 September 2019)
Five years ago, I made available an Outline of Gāndhārī Grammar that had grown out of my classes at the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Leiden and the University of Munich. This past July, I updated my Outline for another class that I taught in the Leiden Summer School in Languages and Linguistics. The new version is freshly typeset and now features links from example words into the Dictionary of Gāndhārī that illustrate the range of evidence on which my grammar statements are based. Gāndhārī words are now cited in Dictionary orthography as well as by their reconstructed pronunciation. Like the previous version, this updated version of the Outline is made available under the terms of the CC BY-ND license. [Text via Gāndhārī Language and Literature]

Preleva la rivista per la lettura (formato pdf).
Il Museo Papirologico dell’Università del Salento fu fondato nell’àmbito di un Progetto coordinato delle Università di Lecce e di Catania finanziato dalla Comunità Europea. La sua realizzazione ed il suo allestimento richiesero otto anni di lavoro. Inaugurato il 22 giugno del 2007, il Museo nacque per dare sistemazione e valorizzazione adeguate alla raccolta di papiri che chi scrive, direttore del Centro di Studi Papirologici dello stesso Ateneo, dal 1992 ha acquistato a più riprese sul mercato antiquario italiano e straniero. La Collezione dei papiri leccesi, contrassegnata dalla sigla PUL (Papyri Universitatis Lupiensis), attualmente è costituita da oltre 400 papiri, gran parte dei quali sono greci e demotici, ma non mancano papiri geroglifici, ieratici e copti.
