    • Authors: Jordan Iliev
      Abstract: In this article is presented and analyzed an epigram from the collection, called Greek or Palatine Anthology (Anth. Pal. XVI, 6), that reports for a booty, won by Philip V of Macedon in result of a military campaign. This booty had belonged to Ciroadas, his children and their territory, called Odryas. The content of the text and the opinions expressed for its interpretation are carefully considered. It is pointed out, that the relation of this epigram with the history of Thrace and the Thracians is predetermined by the definition of the Macedonian king as ‘lord of Europe’; in Antiquity the Thracian lands were invariably included under this geographical name. Exposed are the problems in identifying the two names, Ciroadas and Odryas, as well as these related with placing the information of the epigram in historical context. In conclusion are presented some observations of the author on the issues considered. It is concluded that a relation between Odryas and the Odrysians is possible but cannot be considered as proven in the absence of other data than their common root. This makes it difficult to interpret the epigram. The opinion expressed in historiography for dating the dedication to the end of the 3rd century BC is adopted and an attempt for refinement is proposed: the Macedonian king had the greatest reason to be called ‘lord of Europe’ after the conquest of the Thracian coast to the Hellespont in 200 BC.

    • Authors: Anna J. Strataridaki
      Abstract: In a preserved fragment, the historian Sosicrates records a custom which was practiced among the ancient Phaestians in Crete: the boys were trained to tell witty jests from early childhood. The author of this paper proposes the educational purpose of the custom for the boys’ future military and social role. The practice is interpreted as a pedagogical measure aimed to control the untamed nature of the young trainees, and to cultivate their cohesiveness as a group. The custom seems to have taken place at the syssitia, where, according to ancient sources, Cretan agōgē was realized. The Phaestian jesting is also examined as a probable precursor for wits spoken in Crete today.

      Abstract: The eruption of Mount Vesuvius is one of the most pivotal points in world history, for since we have learned so much through what mainly lied underneath its fallout, we can piece together much of Roman life - at least, in a city like Pompeii. In this article, the fallout of the eruption in a social and cultural setting is analysed, through the nature of the ancient sources, and the expositions inherent and current in modern scholarship. We shall see that the response to the eruption, and the damage it caused, was multifarious to some degree, but also multifaceted, in that human responses from culture to subculture are never entirely the same - nor society to substrata. Even between individuals, reactions can occur that are different, however similar. Thus, it shall be shown that what went before informed what went after, and he thoughts and feelings of people influenced how they responded on that day in AD79.

    • Authors: Dr. Mehmet Yilmazata
      Abstract: In this paper, classical sources of late antiquity, including writers as Olympiodorus, Sidonius Apollinaris and Procopius are being analysed to point out the significance of the Roman general and statesman Flavius Aetius in in historiography fashion. With the sources often being compiled either by pagan bureaucrats or by clergymen, this paper aims to establish the tendency in which the events ascribed to Aetius are presented in the twilight of theological hagiography, hero-worshipping panegyrics and political interests. It shall be attempted to address the impact of classical writers mostly determinist evaluation of Aetius and the fate of the Roman Empire onto later, secondary sources of the 18th, 19th and early 20th century. Considering the later literature, we might state that Aetius representation is more or less typical for his age with factual information lacking and being replaced with moralistic and partially metaphysical descriptions.

      Abstract: Bu bildiri, Alabanda Agorası'nda yapılan kazılarda ortaya çıkarılan ve nümizmatik değerlendirme ile ilk kez tarihlendirilen eşsiz bir sikkeyi kapsamaktadır. Detaylı inceleme sonucunda sikkenin Roma Dönemi Alabanda kentine ait yeni bir sözde otonom sikke olduğu tespit edilmiştir. Sikke kataloglarında ve diğer yayınlarda benzeri bulunmayan sikkenin ön yüzündeki Apollo tasviri, Alabanda tarafından basılan diğer Apollo tipi Helenistik ve Roma Dönemi sikkeleriyle büyük ölçüde benzerlik göstermektedir. Ancak, imparatorun tasviri ve arkadaki quadriga üzerindeki efsane nadir özellikler gösterir. Ters tipi ve efsanesi açısından Caracalla dönemine (MS 8-217) tarihlediğimiz sikkenin, ön yüzündeki damgadan dolayı Severus Dönemi'nin son yıllarında da kullanıldığı anlaşılmaktadır. Sonuç olarak, madeni paranın yeni bir Alabanda sözde otonom madeni para serisi olduğu tespit edilmiştir. Ayrıca bu tarihleme, kentin bilinen sözde otonom darphaneleri arasında en son tarihli sikkeler olduğunu ortaya koymaktadır.

      Abstract: The Trabzon Archaeological Survey Project was initiated in 2018 with the aim of researching the pre-Classical Period in the Southeastern Black Sea region. This is a period which had not received much attention previously from researchers. In the first two years of the field researches, some archaeological sites (Kalecik/Mile Castle, Konakdüzü area, ruins in the Horhor and Sumaha hills) within the boundaries of the Maçka district have been discovered, and they were attributed to an early period. These archaeological sites and some of the material remains obtained here are thought to belong to the local peoples of the region mentioned in ancient Greek and Roman texts. The survey project reveals some significant results in compare of descriptions about the local peoples in ancient texts and archaeological evidence of the contemporary neighboring cultures. Thus, it can be said that for the first time, archaeological evidence about the ancient peoples in the region has been obtained.

      Abstract: A rock-cut Mithraic sanctuary (2nd-3rd centuries) was excavated in Castrum Zerzevan. With its architectural authenticity and connectedness to the neighbouring structures, it has remained intact since it was purposefully buried probably around 4th century. The authors argue that it stands as the only known Mithraeum on the eastern border of Rome until proven otherwise. The close up of the site is expressible with the transition process from paganism to monotheistic practices. In the spatio-temporal context, it must have been one of the oldest sanctuaries, due to interactions over the Persian peripheries, of the Mithras belief adopted by the Romanly world.

      Abstract: In the present article the puzzled absence of mythical representations of the Gorgoneion and Gorgo/Medusa in the period from the 11th to the 8th c. is critically discussed. The investigation is achieved through exploration of the historical context of the time, which is illuminated by the archeological excavation data and the literary sources more specifically the epics. An attempt is made to highlight this absence in art, even though in the epics that reflect events of the post-Mycenaean period the gorgoneion and gorgon are mentioned for the first time.

    • Authors: Lóránt Vass, Sorin Cociș
      Abstract: Many aspects of the topography and history of the Roman city of Napoca are still unknown despite the intensive rescue excavations in the recent years which is partially due to the challenges of urban archaeology in a continuously inhabited settlement. The small finds recovered from these archaeological investigations are usually not published, except for some special type of artefacts (pottery, coins, brooches etc.), thus hardly any aspects of the local economy and handicraft are known. The systematic analysis of eighty-six bone objects recovered from mostly recent excavations carried at four topographical points (Victor Deleu Street no. 1, Museum Square no. 2 – from the densely inhabited intra muros area; Avram Iancu Street 21-23 – southern cemetery of the Roman city, and the villa rustica from the Lombului Hill, outside but still in the territorium of the city) endeavours to complete this lack. The not so numerous bone items seem at the first glance very standardized, simple, and unspectacular, however due to the well-dated and documented find contexts they offer an insight into the bone industry and craftmanship in Napoca and in the Dacian provinces. Compared to other Dacian (urban) settlements the objects are very simple and “common”, and this simplicity and uniform character of the finds is what make this lot very interesting and intriguing.

      Abstract: Dacia Mediterranea was established after the division of the first Dacia to the South of the Danube in the 280s. The town of Serdica became the capital of the province while other urban settlements in the latter’s territory which are known from the sources were Naissus, Remesiana, Germania, Pautalia and Bargala. In the 530s the town of Bargala had already been relocated to the territory of the neighbouring Macedonia Secunda, while the newly founded Iustiniana Prima was at least initially incorporated within Inner Dacia.In the late third and the fourth century most of the ceramic workshops known to date were situated in or near rural settlements. A second period of archaeologically attested increased activity of the local production centres occurred between the second half of the fifth and the early seventh century, when ceramic manufacture was practised predominantly in urban contexts and less frequently in fortified non-urban sites. For now, there is very little direct information for the local ceramic production of the late fourth and the first half of the fifth century, for which secondary evidence seems to testify. During the period under discussion pottery production in Dacia Mediterranea seems to have been developed predominantly by private entrepreneurs, in both rural and urban contexts. The manufacture of ceramic building material, on the other hand, was in all probability developed by both personal initiative and implemented state programme. The imperial or municipal (') officinae should be sought within or in the vicinities of the local towns, as both the direct and the secondary data imply. The evidence gathered and analysed suggests that these workshops were often engaged in supplying major or minor construction projects, for example renovation or erection of fortifications, public buildings and Christian churches.

      Abstract: In Late Antiquity, the ancient city of Tralleis was one of the important centres of Western Anatolia. The importance of Tralleis is supported by the richness of the finds unearthed during the excavations in the ancient city, as well as the information that has survived from the sources of the Late Antiquity to this day. Excavations in the ancient city were carried out periodically by different teams. Gymnasium, North and West Shops located around the Gymnasium, Roman Villa Sectors, and Episcopal Church identified as the Byzantine Period church were unearthed. Excavation and restoration works were carried out in front of the Underground Tunnel System, previously referred to as the Arsenal, and inside the tunnel entrance. As a result of the excavations carried out in these areas until today, many small finds have been obtained. The small finds provide data on the daily life of the city, its trade and the transition from a polytheistic belief system to a monotheistic belief system.During the arrangements made in the Tralleis excavation warehouse between 2020-2022, it was determined that there were many metal finds belonging to the Late Antiquity and Early Byzantine Period. Cosmetic and medical instruments stand out among the metal finds. In our study, a preliminary evaluation will be made on the cosmetic and medical instruments found as a result of the works in the warehouse of the ancient city of Tralleis and the warehouse of the Aydın Archeology Museum. In this study, twenty-eight metal cosmetic and medical instruments found in the ancient city of Tralleis will be introduced.Keywords: Metal, Medical, Cosmetic, Instruments, Late Antique, Tralleis.

      Abstract: The ʽaccidentalʼ discovery of archaeological material represents an ordinary fact in today’s archaeology. Unfortunately, most of these discoveries have no archaeological context, thwarting the possibility of integrating the objects in more complex studies. In this context, based on the type of data that the archaeometric study of metal objects provides (information regarding prehistoric metallurgy, especially the used alloys and technologies), we propose for analysis two metal pieces (a socketed axe and a sickle) fortuitously found in Dobrovăt (Iași County), in order to see how much information can we gather for two fragmentary objects, without archaeological context. The methods used are optical microscopy (OM), scanning electron microscopy coupled with energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM-EDX) and micro-Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (μFTIR) and our aim is represented by the obtainment of important information about patina and corrosion products, the metals used and how these objects were manufactured and utilised. As a result, the before mentioned methods illustrated a number of special features regarding the metallurgical practice of the Late Bronze Age in the Eastern Carpathian area, contributing to the expansion of the database in this chronological and geographical area.

      Abstract: The report presents the visualization and analysis of threedimensional spatial data taken with a drone photograph of the rock-cut monument “Belintash”, near the village of Mostovo, Asenovgrad Municipality, Bulgaria. The same monument shows oriented structural details to certain positions of the Sun during its sunrise and culmination at the points of summer
      and winter solstice. The 3D model of the archaeoastronomical monument is a suitable example for each stage of image processing - obtaining the cloud of dots, as well as the subsequent orthomosaic and digital model of the relief of the monument. The analysis of spatial structures allows significantly more accessible and authentic extraction of archaeoastronomical data and their interpretation.
      The created 3-dimensional model with high accuracy was used to build a 3D model of the rock-cut monument “Belintash”. When loading the 3D model in specialized astronomical software Stelarium, a virtual astronomical observation can be performed from any place in space and during different time periods in the so-called “virtual walk in time”. In this way we can see what astronomical events were observed by the ancient people of Belintash. This technology is a unique tool for the needs of archaeoastronomy and the collection of authentic evidence to confirm archaeoastronomical hypotheses.

      Abstract: My work aims at encouraging the interdisciplinary or “bridge-building” approach of different academic disciplines. Experts in Security Studies, Political Science, History, Archaeology, naming just a few, need to cooperate, to corroborate and to collaborate in order to preserve, defend and recover, ancient artifacts and cultural heritage, from the warzones in Ukraine. Who thought about the fact that in 2022, we will see an attempt of Blitzkrieg, a failed one, from the Russian side' The actual International Order is under threat. And, this threat is represented by the will of the Russian Federation, on one side, trying to be a more influencing actor on the International Arena, and by the will of the Popular Republic of China, on the other side, that wants to be the new International Hegemon, World`s new most important state actor, taking the place of the US. As I have written in previous articles, who is investing in education is investing in future, the one that does not know the past, is forced to repeat it. We all know that it is easier to destroy than it is to repair and to build. Ancient artifacts are a honey trap for state soldiers, private contractors, mercenaries and fanatics. The global heritage that escapes from destruction, process that takes place because of the lack of education of the combatant troops and in the name of the modern warfare, is facilitating the “swallowing” up of a state, in the global name of the so-called state-supremacy, the common language of Imperialist forces.

      Abstract: Cavalry tactics require a well-thought-out horse and rider training on a regular basis as well as a cavalry led by a commander who has tactical skill, sufficient horsemanship and knowledge of horses. As a cavalry commander and horseman Xenophon studied the developments on the battlefield during the 5th and 4th century BC. He carefully analysed cavalry tactics of various enemies of Athens and he put forward recommendations on how the Athenians should train their cavalry. His works On Horsemanship and On the Cavalry Commander therefore show the most modern cavalry requirements of that time. They are important documents showing how the different styles of cavalry deployment came to influence each other. This paper wants to explain which foreign tactics he studied and why Xenophon advised specific horse training exercises to the Athenians.
