Winterthur joins Nomisma.org

The Münzkabinett Winterthur is the most recent institution to join the Nomisma.org consortium, through their collaboration with the NUMiD framework of German numismatic databases spearheaded by the MK Berlin.

One of the largest collections in Switzerland, it is just getting underway in its digitization program, with about 250 coins cataloged and photographed in its online database. Of these, 20 have been linked to existing Nomisma-affiliated Linked Open Data projects, such as Online Coins of the Roman Empire, Hellenistic Royal Coinages, and Inventory of Greek Coin Hoards.

Winterthur coins in IGCH 1419, found in Cappadocia.

Winterthur G 5677, linked to a Ptolemaic type from Alexander

We expect that more of Winterthur's coins will be integrated into these research portals as cataloging continues over the years.

Furthermore, Winterthur will be one of the major contributors to OSCAR, the type corpus of Swiss coinage from all periods. Specimens will be integrated into OSCAR from several collections in the coming months.

Résumé :

Le colloque, reprogrammé pour 2021 à Lausanne à cause des circonstances sanitaires actuelles, donnera l’occasion de livrer les premiers résultats du travail engagé sur les textes funéraires en Égypte au Ier millénaire av. n.è. dans le cadre du projet de recherche mené en partenariat entre Ifao et l’Institut d’archéologie et des sciences de l’Antiquité de l’Université de Lausanne.

Il fera suite à la journée d’étude, organisée en 2019 au Caire, qui a permis de dresser un premier constat de la documentation, de circonscrire un corpus de textes représentatif, et de définir les cadres méthodologiques pour conduire une approche comparée des sources sélectionnées.

Ouvert à une plus grande participation, le colloque permettra notamment d’élargir la réflexion en orientant les problématiques sur la question des supports de rédaction et des procédés de sélection des textes, où des mises en parallèles pourront être faites à la fois pour la TPI et la BE.

Call to Help Update the Peutinger Map Viewer

August 30, 2021 in E-resource, Interest, News

The Ancient World Mapping Center, in collaboration with the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University, seeks Expressions of Interest from freelance and contract web developers interested in a small project to replace an online viewer for the so-called “Peutinger Map” of the Roman World. The current HTML+JavaScript web application has been in production on the Web since 2011, providing a seamless “pan and zoom” interface to a raster image of the map, with switchable SVG layers highlighting thematic features. Raster tile services were implemented in the application using the free and open-source Djatoka server application, which is now defunct.

We seek a developer or small team to replace the application with a new software stack that makes as much use as possible of off-the-shelf, free and open-source code as possible, and that leverages applicable widely-used standards like the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF).

Interested parties should email ISAW’s Tom Elliott (tom.elliott@nyu.edu) — not later than 6pm US Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 — in order to indicate their interest in learning more about the scope of the project and its technical aspects. Elliott will organize a prospective vendor teleconference or other forum for questions during the month of October, after which AWMC will solicit proposals for completion of the work. Meantime, the code has been posted to GitHub for review by interested parties.

This call supersedes that made on September 21, 2020.

Committee for the Promotion of Latin and Greek (CPLG)

The Committee’s purpose is to encourage and support all activities that promote the study of Classics, and of Latin and Greek in particular, in- and outside of the schools. Its principal role is to increase awareness, at each educational level, of our Classics community by offering (1) funding opportunities for promotional activities in the schools, (2) help for Latin/Greek/Classics programs in crisis, and (3) an ongoing conversation (e.g., via CPLG panels and workshops at the annual meeting) about how the study of Latin can be promoted best in the field of education.

The chair of the Committee for the Promotion of Latin and Greek, can be reached at cplg@camws.org.
For a list of members of CPLG, see https://camws.org/cplg.

Much of the material on these pages comes from earlier versions of the CPL website created by previous CPL Chairs Tom Sienkewicz and Ginny Lindzey. Tom Sienkewicz continues to maintain this useful site; Sherwin Little is the webmaster of www.promotelatin.org.

The Early Bronze Age in third-millennium-BC Eastern Arabia was a period of fundamental change, which is apparent in the development of social complexity, the exploitation of new resources and the emergence of new modes of life. Hallmarks of this period include monumental structures, so-called towers, and stone-built circular tombs.

The second volume of the series Arabia Orientalis is dedicated to the archaeological investigation of the Early Bronze Age necropolises of the UNESCO world heritage sites Bat and Al-Ayn in the Sultanate of Oman, as well as the monumental tower structure Building II at Bat. It encompasses detailed reports on the architecture and stratigraphy, as well as the find assemblages from the excavated buildings, including pottery and small finds, along with anthropological as well as anthracological studies. The publication presents insights into changing burial customs, as well as the function of the monumental tower structures. Three out of the four excavated Hafit- and Umm an-Nar-period tombs in the necropolises featured evidence for reuse at later times, especially during the Samad period, where new inhumations were placed into the Bronze Age tombs. The early Umm an-Nar tower Building II is surrounded by a large ditch system that might have served as protection against flooding from the nearby wadi.

About the Author
Stephanie Döpper is a postdoctoral researcher at Goethe University Frankfurt with an interest in mobile and sedentary communities of the Bronze Age in Eastern Arabia, as well as the reuse of prehistoric tombs and early modern mud-brick villages in the region. To facilitate public engagement with archaeological sites, she co-developed the ArchaeoTrail app for self-guided smartphone tours at archaeological sites.

German Description
Die frühe Bronzezeit im dritten Jahrtausend v. Chr. in Südostarabien ist eine Zeit grundlegender Veränderungen, die sich in der Entwicklung sozialer Komplexität, der Ausbeutung neuer Ressourcen und dem Aufkommen neuer Lebensformen zeigt. Kennzeichen dieser Epoche sind monumentale Bauwerke, sogenannte Türme, und aus Stein gebaute runde Gräber.

Der zweite Band der Reihe Arabia Orientalis widmet sich der archäologischen Untersuchung der frühbronzezeitlichen Nekropolen der UNESCO-Welterbestätten Bat und Al-Ayn im Sultanat Oman sowie dem monumentalen Turm Gebäude II in Bat. Er umfasst ausführliche Abhandlungen zur Architektur und Stratigraphie sowie zu den Fundeassemblagen aus den ausgegrabenen Bauwerken, darunter Keramik-, Kleinfunde-, anthropologische sowie anthrakologische Untersuchungen. Die Publikation präsentiert Einblicke in sich verändernde Bestattungssitten und die Funktion des monumentalen Turms. Drei der vier ausgegrabenen Hafit- und Umm an-Nar-zeitlichen Gräber in den Nekropolen belegen spätere Nachnutzungen, vor allem in der Samad-Zeit, in der neue Bestattungen in die bronzezeitlichen Gräber eingebracht wurden. Das Gebäude II aus der frühen Umm an-Nar-Zeit ist von einer großen Grabenanlage umgeben, die möglicherweise als Schutz vor Überschwemmungen des nahen Wadis diente.

Stephanie Döpper ist wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin an der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt und beschäftigt sich mit mobilen und sesshaften Gesellschaften der Bronzezeit in Südostarabien sowie der Nachnutzung prähistorischer Gräber und frühneuzeitlicher Lehmziegeldörfer in dieser Region. Um der Öffentlichkeit den Zugang zu archäologischen Stätten zu erleichtern, hat sie die ArchaeoTrail-App für selbstgeführte Smartphone-Touren an archäologischen Stätten mitentwickelt.
