  • Ancient Roman bridges and their social significance
    • Abstract: This article examines the narrative, epigraphic and legal textual sources to assess the social aspects and historical significance of ancient Roman bridges. Bridges are supposed to be not only utilitarian structures, but also monumental and highly sophisticated public projects for everyday usage by all inhabitants of the city, as well as suitable media for self-promotion by the emperors and senators involved. The main objective of this study is the visualization of ancient Roman bridges as historical objects full of military, religious and social connotations. Historical sources are analyzed and evaluated in order to establish whether the bridges of the Roman Empire could have been meant to impress inhabitants and visitors, travelers and residents alike with their size, grandeur, permanence and aesthetics, or whether they were only functional, strategic and costly structures, as well as to investigate if they served as suitable media for self-presentation of imperial power and senatorial class.

  • Auf den spuren eines gnostischen motivs im vierten evangelium
    • Abstract: The Gospel of John differs fundamentally from the synoptic Gospels, both as an historical source and a literary work. Some scholars consider that this gospel is to be interpreted from gnosis, a 2nd-century Mediterranean religious movement. Others deny this connection, assuming that John’s Gospel originates earlier than the emergence of the gnosis. This paper concentrates on the typical Johannine, and gnostic, motif of “misunderstanding”, which is reflected in the Fourth Gospel as faithlessness and sin. We will examine parallels in the recently discovered Gospel of Judas and in the writings of the Nag Hammadi Library. We will also attempt to interpret the function of “misunderstanding”.

  • Place and time of the rape scenes in Terence’s comedies
    • Abstract: This paper is concerned with the rape of young girls which is one of the main elements in Greco-Roman New Comedy equally used by Greek and Roman authors. It concentrates on Terence and examines where and when these sexual assaults against young girls happen, trying to show that place and (dramatic and real) time have actually considerable function and significance into the Terentian comedies. More specifically, place is always associated with the excuses which the assailant uses in order to justify his sexual assault and subsequent attitude towards the victim. Instead, time is related to the victim’s pregnancy that sets the violent act before the play’s action and legitimate the assault through marriage-children (i.e. dramatic time); and finally, it is always night (i.e. real time) that along with wine constitutes a strong incitement to sex, which is what adulescentes used to do this time within the conventions of Greco-Roman Comedy.

  • Le poète aux semelles de plomb. Les métaphores de la
           légèreté et du poids dans la tradition biographique sur
           Philitas de Cos
    • Abstract: The paper deals with the biographical anecdotes of Philitas of Cos, who was not only extremely thin as a result of his laborious philological activity, but according to Aelian and Athenaeus, the poet leptoteros even had to wear lead weights to keep his balance against the wind. In order to support the highly discussed metaphorical interpretation of the second story, the article focuses on a possible analogue not yet examined. After the reconsideration of the sources, including the scoptic epigram, the comedy, the statue of Philitas, we analyse a zoological paradox of Hellenistic origin transmitted also by Aelian: the bees also have to carry stones as counterweight against the wind. This indirect association of the poet with the melissa, a traditional poetological metaphor, would fit well into the tradition about Philitas: he is known to have had a particular interest in nature, as among his glossographical and poetical fragments several items concern the life of bees. Moreover, contemporary critical assessments on Philitas’ œuvre are based on a very similar zoological imagery.

  • Science and literature in the age of Hellenism
    • Abstract: The Aristotelian tradition knows the dichotomy of his works into exoteric and esoteric groups. The interpretation of the two terms, however, changed in the course of time. According to the later, perhaps Hellenistic interpretation of the terms, the group of “exoteric” works included all the works which have been written in schools of rhetoric, and later ascribed to Aristotle. The well-known treatise De mundo should not be considered as a genuin work of school-philosophy, because it belongs to Pseudo-Aristotle’s works written in a school of rhetoric and ranged amond his “exoteric” works.

  • The Historical Geography of Sophene
    • Abstract: This paper deals with the historical geography of Sophene — it aims to determine its original territory and geopolitical developments from Hellenistic times to the eve of the Arab conquests. To achieve this goal, a wide range of sources have been examined with regard to geographical (and ethnographical) information on Sophene — Greek and Latin geographical and ethnographical texts, Greek and Latin historiographical accounts, Byzantine legislations, and finally Armenian writings.In the light of the available data, the heartland of Hellenistic Sophene was located in the triangle marked by the Euphrates (in the west), the Munzur Mountains (in the north), and the Tauros (in the south). This territory includes the modern Dersim (Tunceli), the lower Murat valley (on either side of the river), and the Elaziğ plain, and coincides with the center of the pre-Hellenistic — Suppani. As a political entity Sophene expanded its territory, and especially its expansion in the northeast (including Balabitene and Asthianene) and over the Tauros into the upper Tigris valley (Ingilene, Sophanene) turned out to have more lasting consequences. These territories were closely integrated into Sophene as a political and cultural entity. The first capital of Sophene was ancient Arsamosata (likely located at modern Haraba), but due to the expansion of the kingdom of Sophene over the Tauros, the capital was later moved to the bank of the Tigris as to a more central position (likely today’s Eğil — Strabo’s and Pliny’s Karkathiokerta). Sophene’s political significance resulted from its geographical location — it straddled one of the most important communication lines between West and East in ancient times (the Tomisa crossing).

  • The Role of the Lares in the ‘Augustan’ Theology of Tibullus
    • Abstract: In his poetic collection, Tibullus often refers to the ancient household gods Lares. In this paper we will show that the prominent position Tibullus reserves for the Lares in his elegies proves that the poet agrees with Augustus’ programme of political and moral renovatio. Also we will point out how traditional worship in Augustan Rome is revived in order to serve both the religious and the political objectives of the Princeps.

  • The Quaestors and The IUS Intercedendi in The Flavian Municipal Law
    • Abstract: It is widely accepted that the former emendation of chapter 27 of the lex Salpensana concerning the intercessio of the quaestors is superfluous in the light of the same chapter of the lex Irnitana. But the explanations of the commentaries about this lack are wrong and the text itself shows that the quaestors originally had the ius intercedendi. Additionally, its accidental omission in all three copies can be easily explained. Therefore, the emendation is correct.

  • Multiplex Sermo the ‘Manifold Speech’ of Fama in
           Virgil’S Aeneid
    • Abstract: In this paper, I establish a connection between the manifold character of Fama as reported by Virgil in Aen. 4. 173 ff. and her ‘manifold speech’ (multiplex sermo) in the framework of a narratological reading. According to my interpretation, the short fama of the Virgilian Fama (4. 191-194), as a spectacular example of ‘polyphonic narrative’, radicalises and thus domesticates the dangers inherent in the epic discourse itself.

  • Resyllabification and Metre: The Issue of S Impurum Revisited
    • Abstract: This paper discusses a phenomenon of Latin phonology, word-initial extrasyllabic s, a subcase of what is traditionally called s impurum. Extrasyllabic s behaves unlike other consonants in syllabification, especially at morpheme boundaries, where resyllabification takes place. The odd behaviour of initial extrasyllabic s in poetry is explained not on the basis of clashing metrical conventions but on the basis of principles inherent in the phonological system of Latin.

  • Variations on a theme: From Thucydides to Procopius
    • Abstract: In the present paper I try to point out the importance of imitation as a literary tool in the historiography of the early Byzantine period. Dexippus, Priscus, and Procopius used the description of the siege of Plataea as a base text for imitation. The primary aim of these authors was to continue the classical tradition through imitation and to create something new at the same time.

  • A Roman tradition of Alexander the Great counterfactual history
    • Abstract: The military success of Alexander and his early death lends itself perfectly to the realm of counterfactual history. No less than nine authors partook in the creation and propagation of Alexander counterfactual history. Our extant examples range from as early as the third century BCE to the sixth century CE. This paper examines first the scholarly debates surrounding the placement of Livy’s digression in his larger narrative, the objectives of Livy’s digression, and the reasons for its existence. It then turns to a discussion of the popularity and consistency of the Roman tradition of Alexander counterfactual history. The tradition not only attempted to represent Rome and Italy as places of relative international importance in the late forth century BCE but also served to compare a young Roman state, which would rise to dominance in the Mediterranean world, favorably to the mightiest conqueror in all of ancient history.

  • The aftermath of Christian persecutions: Lapsed and heretic bishops in the
           works of Saint Cyprian
    • Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to uncover similarities and differences between the works of the famous 3rd-century Carthaginian bishop written in adverse of his lapsed and heretic “colleagues”. The former ones are primarily the object of Letters 65 and 67, while the latter ones appear in the De Ecclesiae Unitate and in Letters 69–75. Their comparative analysis is motivated by the fact that in both cases the author’s purpose is to prove that these ecclesiastic leaders had become inconvenient to their office and thus to carry out their job substantially. Causes mentioned by Cyprian are the following: they call wrongfully for the right of performing a sacrifice; their sacraments are invalid because of their sins; they are separated from the Church; their inaptness is proclaimed by both contemporary and former bishops and synods; and finally, they contaminate their followers, so it is necessary to be separated from them. These arguments are formulated concerning both groups, so it can be supposed that in Cyprian’s opinion lapsed and heretic bishops were not sharply different from each other, therefore he may have used the same thoughts about the former group to apply them to the latter one as well.

  • Etruskische Religion und Christentum
    • Abstract: During the Roman Empire, when an autonomous Etruscan culture had disappeared long ago, aspects of the old Etruscan religion were still surviving and had been integrated in the Roman traditional religion: the haruspices, acting as diviners for public or private purposes all over the Roman empire, could interpret prodigies, what Roman priests and even augurs did not. When, with the Christians, a new religion arrived which risked to overthrow the old national religion of the Romans, Etruscan religious tradition played an important role against the rise of Christianity: with the sacred books of the Etruscans, with the prophets who were alleged to have created the Etruscan religious tradition, the Romans could find in their own heritage what could match the Bible of the Christians or their prophets. Unsurprisingly, haruspices were active in the resistance movement against the new religion.

  • The warrior queen
    • Abstract: The Hellenistic kings’ mechanism for revealing divine power leaves no conceptual doubt, which is why it is generally accepted that the military deed, with time not necessarily an authentic one, was a major and even central element forming the basis of the cult of the ruler. The question, however, arises as to the framework within which a “military deed” could be performed in the context of the changing ontological status of women, and thus of female Hellenistic rulers. It should be considered that the concept of the military deed of female rulers as the basis of Hellenistic monarchical ideology was certainly not born on the battlefield, where queens basically did not appear. However, in spite of the lack of a military basis, the fighting female ruler is present in Hellenistic ideology. This situation begs the question of whether the armed deed, as in the case of male rulers, was at all necessary to associate the queens with war. Possibly it is a case of the reverse — maybe the military deed was a consequence rather than the cause of the cult of these female rulers, since female historical figures did not change their ontological status as a result of the armed deed.

  • A Renaissance manuscript of Catullus, Tibullus and Propertius: Budapest,
           Országos Széchényi Könyvtár, Codex latinus medii
           aevi 137 and Cologny, Bibliotheca Bodmeriana, MS. Bodmer 141
    • Abstract: Budapest, Országos Széchényi Library, Codex latinus medii aevi 137 is a parchment codex from the 15th century that contains the poems of Catullus and Tibullus. It has a twin in Cologny, Bibliotheca Bodmeriana, MS. Bodmer 141, which contains the poems of Propertius; the two manuscripts were copied together and once constituted a two-volume ‘edition’ of the three poets. The subscription of the volume in Cologny shows that both were copied in 1466 in Florence by Ioannes Petrus de Spoleto. They were soon acquired by Antonello Petrucci (?-1487), secretary to King Ferdinand of Naples, and after Petrucci’s execution they entered the royal library. It is not clear what happened to the second volume when the library was scattered around AD 1500, but the first volume appears to have remained in Italy: in the early 16th century it was owned by one Iuuarius Indicus or Indico or Íñigo de Guevara, who presented it to his tutor Placidius Jacobus Antonius Ubertus in 1529, as is shown by an owner’s note and an epigram by Jacobus Antonius on the front flyleaf of the codex. Then we lose track of the first volume as well.The origins of the text of Propertius in the second volume have already been studied by Butrica, who noted that the codex was a sibling of the Codex Memmianus (Parisinus lat. 8233) and of Urbinas lat. 641. The stemma of Tibullus is not known well enough for us to be able to locate the first volume within it. However, it can be demonstrated that the text of Catullus in this volume descends indirectly from Siena H.V.41, and ultimately from R (Vatican, Ottobonianus lat. 1829); and that for Catullus too the volume is a sibling of the Memmianus and of Urbinas lat. 641.

  • Phaedrus and the medieval tradition
    • Abstract: The name and the verses of Phaedrus were unknown in the Middle Ages but his fables were widespread in several prosified versions. One of these is the collection of Romulus, which is of great importance because it has preserved some lost Phaedrian fables and various other collections have derived from it. This paper examines the textual tradition of these and of Phaedrus’ fables. I attempt to present some problems about the tradition and offer a solution to these questions.
