  • A New Date for Paradoxographus Palatinus'

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: This article reviews recent theories proposing a late (Byzantine) date for the so-called <i>Paradoxographus Palatinus</i>. Arguing for a traditional, classical date in the second-third century AD the article allows for a redaction in the 11th-12th centuries.

  • Did On Famous Men Literature before Nepos Include Generals'

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: The evidence concerning the late-Hellenistic biographer Amphikrates of Athens suggests that inclusion of military men in <i>On Famous Men</i> literature was not an abrupt invention of Cornelius Nepos, but should rather be regarded as a broader late-Hellenistic phenomenon.

  • A Late Antique Vessel with Greek Texts and the Makellon of
           Sagalassos (SW Anatolia)

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: In 2013, seven inscribed pottery sherds belonging to a ceramic dish were found during the archaeological excavations of the <i>makellon</i> of Sagalassos, SW Anatolia. The ancient Greek texts on these sherds formed the initial reason for this contribution. The consideration of their meaning and their find context have led to further reflections on the functioning of the <i>makellon</i> as a slaughterhouse/butchery in late antiquity, the role of large-scale dining events at Sagalassos and local practices at waste management.

  • Statues in Dialogue

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: Statues of the Roman emperor and of his family members were usually set up together in groups, to which new statues were often added over time. This article shows that the iconography and style of new additions to imperial statue groups in the Greek East were regularly influenced by statues already present in the intended display environment. This phenomenon not only attests to the existence of a local field of references for sponsors and workshops to tap into, but it also hints at the deliberate use of honorific statuary by communities to shape a narrative of local identity mediated around the person of the emperor.

  • Beer for the Gods and Coin for the Priests

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: The beer industry was a major branch of the ancient Egyptian economy. In pre-Hellenistic Egypt, temples played an important role in the brewing business. During the Hellenistic period, however, the Ptolemies are generally thought to have introduced a state or royal 'monopoly' on the production of beer. In the traditional view, based mainly on Greek sources, the temples continued to be active in beer production, but only as a privilege or an exception within the 'monopoly' framework. This study reviews all evidence for temple involvement in the beer industry of this period. In particular the Demotic Egyptian papyri show that these institutions played a more integral role in the operation and taxation of the beer industry, highlighting the heterogeneity of the Ptolemaic fiscal system that cannot be reduced to 'state monopolies'.

  • Construire la figure religieuse des souverains lagides

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: This article reconsiders a fragmentary dedication to Hestia <i>Pantheos</i>. It explores the intriguing grammatical particularities of the inscription and the restitutions suggested by previous editors, focusing on their impact on the understanding of the spatial setting of the sanctuary. It will be argued that the sacred place would have hosted a cult of Hestia <i>Pantheos</i> nearby a second cult space devoted to the <i>Theoi Euergetai</i> as <i>synnaoi</i> of another deity, maybe Zeus. In this respect, the inscription sheds light on how dedicators managed to create the religious persona of the king in the broad framework of the Hellenistic ruler cult, mostly through the closeness of sacred spaces dedicated to ancient and new gods and the use of epithets specifying particular functions.
