The "Artemidorus Papyrus" (P. Artemid.), first published in 2008, is potentially the most significant new discovery in recent years for a range of fields within Classics: the history of drawing in the Greco-Roman world and more generally issues in the history of art, the history of ancient mapping, and the history of geographical writing in Hellenistic Egypt. Its spectacular and unprecedented collection of images and texts has been the subject of lively and impassioned debate.
At a recent conference at St John’s College, Oxford, an international panel of scholars discussed the artefact, the images, the map and the texts on the papyrus.

 From Kai Brodersen's message on Papy-L:
Historia Einzelschriften has just published the papers of this conference, plus further contributions, by G. Adornato, M. Billerbeck, L. Canfora, J. Elsner, G. Nisbet, D. Obbink, P. Parsons, R. Talbert, M. West, and N. Wilson. The book also contains, courtesy of the original publishers, black and white photographs of the whole papyrus.

DM Raymond Bogaert

 The passing of Raymond Bogaert  was announced today on the Papy-list by W. Clarysse:


Belgian papyrologists are doubly in mourning as also Raymond Bogaert died last week. He spent most of his scientific life working on ancient banks, from Babylonia to Greece and Egypt, and received only last year a Festschrift  "Pistoi dia tèn technèn. Bankers, Loans and Archives in the Ancient World", Stud. Hell. 44. Bogaert was a great scholar but also a pleasant colleague. We will certainly miss him.

There is a brief biography and bibliography of Prof. Bogaert here.

DM Georges Nachtergael


The passing of Prof. Nachtergael (no. 5 in the photo) was announced on the Papy-list today by Alain Martin:
J'ai le penible devoir d'annoncer le deces de Georges Nachtergael, survenu de maniere inopinee a Bruxelles, le 18 octobre 2009, a l'age de 75 ans.

Nous perdons un collegue devoue et modeste. Georges Nachtergael a rendu des services inestimables a la papyrologie, jusqu'à la derniere heure, a l'exemple de son Maitre Marcel Hombert, dont il cherissait la memoire.

Among his major publications are:

Pap.Lugd.Bat.V  Recherches sur le recensement dans l’Égypte romaine with M. Hombert (1952) with J. Bingen
P.Brux.Gr. (1978)
Actes du XVe Congrès international de papyrologie : Bruxelles-Louvain, 29 août - 3 septembre 1977 Pap.Brux. XV La Collection M. Hombert (1978)
Pap.Brux XXXII La Collection M. Hombert Tome II, Nouveaux documents grecs d'Egypte et addenda au tome I (2003)

Herbert Verreth, The provenance of Egyptian documents from the 8th century BC till the 8th century AD (Trismegistos Project)

The Introduction begins:
For every historical document two questions can be asked about its localisation: where has it been found, and where has it been written (or made)? For letters one can expand with the question where the letter has been sent to. These questions are not always easy to answer, since for most documents information about the archaeological context is lacking, while the contents of the document itself does not always allow a precise localisation. Unfortunately not all publishers of ancient documents paid much attention to these geographical issues and often - especially in older publications - the reader is left to his own devices about the origin of the document. Moreover, even if a place of origin is mentioned, it is not always clear whether that is the place where the document was found or written, or both, and why this suggestion has been made. The number of publications where Found, Written and Destination are explicitly distinguished and commented upon, is disappointingly small.

The database Trismegistos now contains more than 110.000 documents, which are usually in some way linked to Egypt and can be dated between the 8th century BC and the 8th century AD. Since the Leuven Database of Ancient Books (LDAB) has been incorporated in the database, a number of texts also comes from outside of Egypt. The texts in Trismegistos are written in no less than 36 different ancient languages on all kinds of material. Since the database was mainly developed to study multilingualism and multiculturalism in Egypt, a geographical section has been created from the very start in order to look for regional differences throughout Egypt. For every document the information where it was found and written, was included, while already some work has been done in the category Destination. For these purposes, a separate file 'Geotex' has been created, distinct from the file 'Georef', which lists toponyms mentioned in the text of the document itself, although bothfiles are intimately related. All this information is available online, but since the internet-interface does not always allow to ask some of the more complicated questions which are possible in the original Filemaker Pro database, we here offer a survey of these geographical metadata in a separate publication, where scholars can find some statistical information for the geographical questions they might have in mind. The number of tables could easily have been multiplied, but I believe that for the moment the most basic information is made readily accessible.
