  • Non-Olympian Gods and Persuasive Speech in the Aeneid

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Although the divine struggle between Jupiter and Juno has a profound effect on the Aeneid's mortal characters, the Olympian gods only rarely speak with mortals directly, as it is the non-Olympian gods, acting as intercessors for Olympian gods, who typically interact with mortals.1 In most cases, non-Olympian gods try persuading their mortal audience before resorting to their divine appearance and/or abilities to manipulate the physical world. Even though these speeches rarely attract critical attention in their own right, we can be certain that Vergil complicates these episodes to convey information not only about the nature of the non-Olympian gods (and their relationship to mortals) but also about the character ...

  • Lucius Finally Hits the Anglophone Stage: Robertson Davies' Operatic
           Golden Ass and the Reunification of Apuleius' Asinus Aureus

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is ironic that for roughly 1800 years the influence of Apuleius' Asinus Aureus ("Golden Ass") on drama was almost completely limited to the inset story of Cupid and Psyche (Met. 4.28–6.24) because the absence of that story from the Greek version of the ass-narrative in Ps.-Lucian's Onos suggests that it is not an essential part of the larger narrative.1 But, as Müller-Reineke has argued, the simplicity and accessibility of the Cupid and Psyche story appealed to numerous authors, while the novel's "somewhat loose morality" kept it from the stage. According to him, it is only since the 1960s that morals—and views of classical literature—have changed enough for people to attempt to put the entire novel on ... Read More

  • Un vase peint conservé au Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Le département d'archéologie méditerranéenne du Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal abrite depuis 2015, dans ses collections de céramique antique, une cruche complète avec un décor peint en partie effacé par des concrétions mal nettoyées. Cet objet serait d'un caractère anonyme s'il n'était orné d'un motif peint qui le rend digne, peut-être, de ces quelques pages.La cruche1 a une panse légèrement globulaire et un fond plat plus ou moins inégal. Le col cylindrique se termine par une lèvre évasée bien marquée par une carène. Une épaisse anse bifide rapportée joint la lèvre à l'épaule, marquée à cet endroit, comme à trois reprises autour du col, d'un triple sillon tracé dans l'argile avant la cuisson (figures 1-5).La ...

  • Fieldwork of the Canadian Institute in Greece in 2018

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As the interim Academic Director of the Canadian Institute in Greece, I have the welcome opportunity to present a condensed version of our annual Open Meeting report, so that the archaeological fieldwork conducted under the Institute's auspices in 2018 can be made available especially for Canadian readers. The Institute's research activities included three collaborative (synergasia) excavations at ancient Argilos in Macedonia, ancient Eleon in eastern Boeotia, and Stelida on Naxos, as well as an independent survey as part of the Western Argolid Regional Project focused on fortifications. In addition, there was a formal study season of the collaborative excavation at Kastro Kallithea in Thessaly (Figure 1).The ... Read More

  • The Commemoration of Children in the Funerary Epigraphy of the Conventus
           Cluniensis (Hispania Citerior)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When Gaemellina died at the age of five, her parents, Primulus and Lasciua, dedicated to her an epitaph that marked the place of her tomb.1 In the context of the Roman Empire, it could be considered that she was a privileged girl; not, of course because she lived in a historical period of high infant mortality, but because despite her early age at death and her gender, she had a tombstone to preserve her memory. The exceptionality of this act of commemoration lies in the fact that only a low number of young children received a tombstone during the Roman period despite their high mortality rate.2 Although there is no precise information about the life expectancy at birth and the exact demographic curve of the Roman ...

  • Population and Economy in Classical Athens by Ben Akrigg (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This new demography of Classical Athens plunges into a field already occupied by towering figures of classical scholarship. One might ask whether we need another study of this kind when we already have the seminal works of Hansen and Gomme.1 As Akrigg acknowledges, demographies can appear "dry and technical" and pose a challenge to make the results historically meaningful (1). But by bringing rigorous demographic analysis to bear on broader questions of Athenian economic and social history, this work succeeds in creating a dynamic new history, one of demographic growth and economic expansion in the fifth century bc. It shows there is room for another demography of Classical Athens. Such a work might even appear ... Read More

  • Greek Drama V: Studies in the Theatre of the Fifth and Fourth Centuries
           BCE ed. by Hallie Marshall and C.W. Marshall (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Over the last forty years or so, the Drama Conference has established itself as the largest conference on ancient drama. Its first meeting took place in Sydney in 1982, and Australia or New Zealand hosted the following ones, but in 2017 the Drama Conference landed in Vancouver with C.W. Marshall and H. Marshall as its convenors and eventual editors of its proceedings. The fifth Drama Conference hosted 64 papers, 16 of which made their way into this volume. The editors selected them by focusing on two main themes: fragmentary works and the reception of Athenian drama in Greece and beyond. As they note, these principles "unite" over half of the essays presented (xiii). Although included in the volume's title ... Read More

  • Democratic Law in Classical Athens by Michael Gagarin (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The present book is a revised version of the fifth contribution to the Fordyce W. Mitchel Memorial Lecture Series hosted by the University of Missouri-Columbia. Over an introduction and nine chapters, Michael Gagarin brings a long and impactful career's worth of studying ancient law to bear on the question of democracy and the rule of law in Classical Athens. His central claim is clear:Athenian courts did try to enforce the laws as written but that they deliberately allowed litigants to present a broad range of arguments, including arguments about relative social and political worth, which modern scholars generally see as conflicting with the strict enforcement of the law but which the Athenians saw as not only ...

  • Lexicon of Argead Makedonia ed. by Waldemar Heckel et al. (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The time is long past when Alexander the Great and Philip of Macedon were the only subjects of general interest in the field of ancient Macedonian studies. Increasing interest in all areas of Argead history, as demonstrated by a growing body of scholarship, underlines the need for a lexicon that includes all Argead Macedonia. Students and scholars alike will surely welcome this collection of erudite entries, which are intended to throw the spotlight on Argead Macedonia, particularly its role in Mediterranean history prior to Philip and Alexander. The second half of the fourth century bc (i.e., the reigns of Philip and Alexander) is also amply covered, though as the title makes clear, the book does not cover ... Read More

  • Beyond Alexandria: Literature and Empire in the Seleucid World by Marijn
           S. Visscher (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Beyond Alexandria: Literature and Empire in the Seleucid World, Marijn S. Visscher wants to study the Seleucid world and its interactions with its great rivals, the Ptolemies of Alexandria. This aim is already expressed in its introduction, which opens with a poem by Constantine Cavafy (Η Δόξα των Πτολεμαίων, "The Fame of the Ptolemies"). Starting from this celebration of the Ptolemaic kings, Visscher focuses on those of the Seleucids by analyzing four specific moments of their history: (a) the expansion under Seleucus I, (b) the consolidation with Antiochus I, (c) the crisis of the Third Syrian War at the time of Seleucus II, and (d) the restoration and defeat by Rome under Antiochus III. These different ... Read More

  • The House of Augustus: A Historical Detective Story by T.P. Wiseman
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The author of this book will be well known to anyone interested in Roman history. What Wiseman (W.) has provided on this occasion is a thought-provoking examination of the Palatine hill in Rome. The subtitle of the book is "A Historical Detective Story," which is an appropriate way to describe the content. Following the trail of Augustus to try to discover who he was, uncovering potential problems with the identification of structures on the Palatine, and interrogating the ancient literary sources, W. has produced an entertaining if at times complex narrative that provides the reader with much to think about. Not everyone will agree with his conclusions, but they are both provocative and provide a different ... Read More
