Panels at the APA on papyri



Franziska Naether,
University of Leipzig, and Gil H. Renberg, Institute for Advanced Study, Organizers
This panel aims to explore aspects of religion in Greco-Roman Egypt that are best understood by studying the Greek and Demotic documents together, demonstrating the importance of employing this inclusive approach to various aspects of post-Pharaonic Egyptian culture and history. Though focusing on religion, the papers will touch on other sub-fields -- including Hellenistic and Roman history, historiography, the ancient novel, epistolography, ethnicity and bilingualism, and onomastics -- that likewise are illuminated by some of the 15000 edited Demotic texts. Additionally, the panel will showcase certain new methodologies and technical applications that have uses beyond Demotic studies.

Raffaella Cribiore,
New York University, Organizer

This panel presents a challenging mixture of papers concerning socio-economic and cultural issues. The first paper represents the work of a team that has found a large amount of papyri that belong to a well- known archive. The second paper sheds some light on the use of slave labor in skilled trades in late antiquity. The following concerns horoscopes designated as “deluxe” that so far have attracted little attention. From there the panel moves to handbooks for interpreting dreams and to two late papyri with interlinear musical notations that appear to be directly related to the origin of Byzantine musical notation.

First Circular
29 July ‐ 3 August 2013 Warsaw, Poland

On behalf of the Organising Committee, we are pleased to invite you to take part in the 27th International Congress of Papyrology in 2013 in Warsaw, Poland. The Congress is organised under the patronage and in close cooperation with the International Association of Papyrologists.
The Polish capital hosted scholars interested in papyrology, history of Graeco‐Roman Egypt, and ancient laws during the 10th International Congress of Papyrology already over a half a century ago, in 1961. Bringing this event again to Poland’s capital shows the strength and vitality of the Warsaw papyrological milieu centred around The Journal of Juristic Papyrology.
All relevant information concerning the venue and registration is to be found on the Congress website: www.papyrocongress2013.wpia.uw.edu.pl. Further information on accommodation, programme and events will be posted at a later date.

All correspondence will be sent by e‐mail: papyrocongress2013@uw.edu.pl

The Congress will be held between Monday, 29 July, and Saturday, 3 August 2013. All sessions will take place in the Con Centre at the Collegium Novum, the old Library of the University of Warsaw located at the heart of the main University Campus at 26‐28, Krakowskie Przedmieście Street. The campus is found in the very centre of Warsaw, near its historical quarter, and it can be accessed easily by bus. The venue boasts modern auditoria and conference rooms fully equipped with audio‐visual facilities. At the disposal of the Congress participants will be 8 conference rooms seating up to 50 persons (convertible into 4 rooms seating 100 persons), as well as a spacious auditorium for up to 300 persons.

The Congress venue is located in the neighbourhood of several hotels representing a selection of standards. The accommodation offer with special rates for Congress participants will be posted on the website and included in the second circular.

Five days of sessions will be scheduled. The sixth day will be reserved for the General Assembly of the AIP devoted to obituaries and a general discussion of current problems in our discipline.
The papers will be presented in one of the following languages: English, French, German, and Italian.

The sessions will be divided into two categories:
1) Plenary sessions, held in the morning, with papers read by invited scholars and devoted to the presentation of the results of recent work in the main fields of papyrology.
2) Parallel sessions held in the afternoon, with papers grouped according to subject matter. Two types of presentations will be accepted:
  • Papers (20 minutes)
  • Short papers (10 minutes)
    Posters will be exhibited in addition to the sessions.
    The Participants are required to submit abstracts (max. 200 words) of papers and poster presentations by e‐mail to papyrocongress2013@uw.edu.pl.

    Social events
    The city of Warsaw and the surrounding areas have numerous interesting places to visit, and the cultural offer of the Polish capital is extremely rich. The organizing committee will arrange several attractive tours open for participants and accompanying persons to be taken place in the days immediately following the Congress. Details will be published on the Congress website. A dinner and a farewell party will be offered for all participants (dates to be confirmed).
    The congress registration form and account details are provided on the website.

C. BENNETT, Alexandria and the Moon

Alexandria and the Moon
An Investigation into the Lunar Macedonian Calendar of Ptolemaic Egypt

Year: 2011
ISBN: 978-90-429-2505-2
Pages: XXXVI-276 p.
Price: 68 EURO

This book is the first comprehensive study of the lunar Macedonian calendar in two decades. The mechanics of the calendar are examined in detail, and a new approach for reconstructing the sequence of intercalary months and years is proposed which, for the first time, permits a consistent interpretation of the papyrological data of the middle Ptolemaic period. It is shown that in c. 265 BC Ptolemy II deliberately set in motion a process to realign the calendar over an extended period, which ended early in the reign of Ptolemy IV. The results have implications for the origins of the financial year, the date of the Ptolemaieia, and the history of the Canopic reform of the Egyptian calendar, among other topics. Appendices consider the nature of Macedonian intercalation and the New Year outside Egypt.

The study is of interest to students of ancient calendars, Ptolemaic chronology, and Hellenistic history.

More Than Men, Less Than Gods is conceived as a demonstration project, with the goal of opening new perspectives in the study of Graeco-Roman ruler worship. A principal emphasis is placed on the effectiveness of a multidisciplinary approach to the subject. The present volume points to some possible forerunners to Hellenistic royal cult and emperor worship, or at least to the concept of the divine king, to supplement the well-studied roots of ruler worship in the cultic life of the Greek polis and in pharaonic Egypt. More than Men... aspires to contribute to the debate relative to divine kingship, royal cult and emperor worship by opening new perspectives or reopening old ones. The focus is in eliciting some audacious and innovative approaches to such a complex phenomenon. All questions are not raised and certainly most of them are not answered here. In abandoning the sterile opposition between “political” and “religious,” the volume’s perspective transcends established notions conditioned by the Judeo-Christian model of western societies and scholarship, to consider the problem under different perspectives: there is no need to oppose “Greek” vs. “oriental,” “rational” vs. “emotional” to understand the birth of the phenomenon.
The diversity of approaches draws attention to the variety of sources that provide evidence relating to ruler worship, or that can enhance our understanding of the broader phenomenon of the divinization of powerful men. These include myth and historical accounts preserved by ancient authors; dedicatory inscriptions; clay tablets; papyri; architectural decoration and other archaeological remains; statuary, cameos, gems and various minor arts; seal impressions; and coins.

Updates to papyri.info searches for DDbDP

(1) By now you will have noticed that we have rolled out the new search interface. This is an entirely new way of doing search and will take some getting used to.

Go to http://papyri.info/search . The search screen is divided into two parts. Search results appear on the right and search filters appear on the left.
The primary difference between the old and the new is that rather than coming up with a single search query that aims to give you exactly what you want, it is now possible to begin with a more open-ended search and successively narrow and expand it until you reach a desired end.

So, let's say your class is interested in literacy. Run an initial search for #αγραμματ: enter #αγραμματ in the search box or select "Convert from betacode as you type" and enter #agrammat (by the way, this is a good option if you want to run searches from your smartphone, which probably does not have Unicode Greek); click 'Search'. This will give you words beginning with αγραμματ (# indicates a boundary; you will not find διαγρραμματ). You get 446 hits--too many to show your class.
You select (toward the bottom) "Show only records with images from:" / "Papyri.info" and click 'Go'. This will narrow your found set down to the 16 texts that contain a word beginning with αγραμματ and are known (via APIS) to Papyri.info. 

But there must be more: HGV knows about a great many links to other sites (external to papyri.info). So, you select "Other sites" and 'Go'. Now you have 221 records for which some digital image is known, whether via APIS or HGV.

Add "Print publications" and you will see that papyri.info knows of a total of 337 texts that have *some* image associated with them, whether digital or print.

Your class is working on texts from the first 2 centuries CE. So, you set "Date on or after" at "1 CE" and "Date on or before" to "200 CE" and click Go. That's 45 hits. 

The classroom where you are teaching has digital projection, but no access to books. So, you *remove* the "Print images exist" filter by clicking it away from the top of the right side of your screen. That's 28 hits; you can actually look at several of these in class.

Etc. at Digital Papyrology
