Publisher's blurb: With the present volume, publication of the important series Papiri della Società Italiana (PSI), interrupted many years ago after the volume XIV (1957), now resumes. Among the 58 literary and para-literary texts comprised in the work, particular attention is given to a new fragment by Callimachus, along with another one most likely by Menander, the remains of an anthology of sententious poems, two fragments of lost philosophical treatises, a prose writing with a quotation of the first ode of Sappho, and six fragments on astronomical and astrological matters. The sixty documentary papyri, belonging to different moments of the long period which goes from the Ptolemaic to the Arabian age, offer a broad panorama of text on both public administration and private life, in particular letters, which give a significant and vivid description of the society of the time. The work also includes four illustrated papyri, among which the renown Madonna lactans, one of the earliest representations of the Virgin nursing the Child. Indexes and the tables of all the texts complete the volume.

EDUCE: Non-invasive scanning for classical materials
Brent Seales (University of Kentucky)

Digital Classicist/ICS Work in Progress Seminar, Summer 2008

Friday 13th June at 16:30, in room NG16, Senate House, Malet Street, London

Often, any attempt to read fragile texts, such as papyrus rolls, fundamentally and irreversibly alters the structure of the object in which they are contained. The EDUCE project is developing a non-destructive volumetric scanning framework to enable access to such objects without the need to physically open them.

ALL WELCOME

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

Dovecotes, Ancient and modern

Dovecote from Karanis.
(from a blog by Troels Myrup Kristensen, a grad. student in Classical Archaeology in Aarhus DK)

Dovecotes are not only an omnipresent part of many Egyptian landscapes. They are also very much part of the national identity of modern Egypt, as seen for example in the above portrait of Mubarak in the Abdine Palace in Cairo. It shows a contemplative president surrounded by symbols of the modern Egyptian nation-state: airforce, industry, agriculture, Mahmoud Mokhtar’s sculpture Egypt’s Renaissance, pyramid, mosque, Coptic church, the Nile and a pair of dovecotes.
