  • Mycenaean Pottery in Sardinia

    • Authors: Francesco Luca Spigno
      Pages: 1 - 30
      Abstract: In this paper I intend to present a typological analysis of the Mycenaean materials found in Sardinia (ceramic, faience and ivory), with the aim at proposing the revision of some ceramic forms dating back to a chronological span ranging from LHIIIA2 to LHIIIC, with particular attention to a possible cult use of these; moreover, the recent discoveries of Caprera and Santa Teresa di Gallura show that the spread of Mycenaean artefacts has not only affected the southern part of the island, but also the northern part.

  • A plan on the roof tile' Reflections on the allegedly ancient city map
           of Aguntum (Austria)

    • Authors: Michael Teichmann
      Pages: 31 - 48
      Abstract: During excavations in Aguntum (Austria; Tyrol) in 1976, a map carved on a roof tile was discovered, which was interpreted by the excavator as an ancient city map or architectural sketch of Aguntum dated to the 3rd century AD. Soon afterwards, the authenticity of the plan was strongly doubted by several archaeologists. As the plan is still considered a Roman original today by some scholars, this essay aims to draw attention once again to the discussion on the authenticity. While the argumentation so far has concentrated primarily on the circumstances of the discovery and recovery of the roof tile and on technical questions concerning the scratchings, further arguments concerning the cultural history, ancient mentality as well as conventions of space representation are presented. As research on Roman plans and the ancient perception of space has improved since the 1970s, further indications for addressing the plan of Aguntum as a forgery are found. However, a definite clarification of the authenticity question cannot be provided.

  • Note sull'architettura in terra cruda in Sardegna: dalle origini alle
           età punica e romana

    • Authors: Raimondo Secci
      Pages: 49 - 73
      Abstract: This contribution aims to provide an overview of the origin and development of earthen architecture in Sardinia, in the light of the most recent studies and literary sources. The first evidence of building systems based on the use of clay can be attributed to the culture of San Michele di Ozieri, developed in the Recent Neolithic. Subsequently, the phenomenon seems to intensify from the Recent and Final Bronze Age, especially in the Campidanese region and in Gallura, and then generalize following the contact with the Phoenician culture, recording the maximum diffusion in Punic and Roman age. Although it is possible to reconstruct the evolution of this building culture in a general way, the available picture still shows many questions and large areas of shadow, which will have to be solved by future research.

  • Le fibbie di cintura nelle tombe infantili della Sardegna bizantina
           (secoli VII-VIII)

    • Authors: Sara Tacconi
      Pages: 75 - 93
      Abstract: The paper deals with several examples of byzantine belt buckles found in infant graves in Sardinia. By subjecting evidence to a new comparative study, the research cherishes the importance of buckles as children' clothing, suggesting new readings to the traditional ascription to military and male adults. Moreover, the association in context with other objects such as coins and deer canin teeth, originally placed as belt components, gives new details on possible ritual functions of buckles for infants in antiquity.

  • "Sfogliare una necropoli": storia ed evoluzione del cimitero monumentale
           dell’Assassif (Luxor, Egitto)

    • Authors: Silvia Einaudi
      Pages: 95 - 105
      Abstract: In Egypt, on the west bank of the ancient city of Thebes (today's Luxor) there is a vast necropolis known as Assassif, located in the desert plain in front of the three funerary temples of Deir el-Bahari. Its multi-millennial history dates back at least to the reign of king Montuhotep II (2045-1994 a.C.) and continues into Roman times. The heyday of this ancient cemetery was between the end of the 8th and the middle of the 6th century BC. During this period (XXV and XXVI dynasties) a dozen monumental tombs (also known as 'funerary palaces') were erected to bury members of the Theban elite.
