Abstract

Regions and regionalism have been staples of historical analysis for the Greek world for a very long time. What is meant by a region, however, is not always obvious. The contributions in this volume seek to address the question of defining regions and working out the implications of regionalism along different dimensions of analysis for Asia Minor in the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Looking at culture, coinage, political institutions, the papers explore different markers of regional identity, consider ways in which these identities may remain stable or change over time, review the character of the interaction between regional entities and hegemonic powers, and challenge the usefulness in some cases of regional analysis. Questions of ethnicity are also addressed. This volume will be of interest to historians working in Asia Minor and also to anyone concerned with the conceptual questions around regions and regionalism in the Mediterranean world.

Abstract

This collection of studies in Greek epigraphy honors the work of Stephen V. Tracy. His meticulous research on the hands of Attic letter-cutters has transformed the way we think about Greek inscriptions in Attica and beyond. The twenty-nine scholars who have contributed to this volume offer papers ranging from publication of new inscriptions and studies of others long-known to wide-ranging discussions of historical, religious, and social matters. Chronologically and geographically they cover Greece, the Aegean, and western Asia Minor from the Archaic period to the Roman Empire. What unites the work here offered to Tracy is the centrality of epigraphy to the questions addressed and conviction that careful attention to even the smallest details of the epigraphic evidence can advance our understanding of the Greek past in rich and unexpected ways.

Abstract

The conference on which the present volume is based took place in Oxford in the summer of 2006. It brought together linguists, archaologists, epigraphists, numismatists and historians and allowed them to exchange ideas about a period of major transition in Karian history: the fourth century and the two centuries after Alexander. This was first a period of great starapal visibility and presence, but then alsol of intense civic engagement and increased political awareness among Karian communities. The symbiotic relationship between the islands of the Dodekanese, in particular Rhodes and Kos, and the coastal regions of Karia forms another major theme. Finally, a number of papers pick up on a major recent trend in the study of Anatolian culture, namely the investigation of cross-cultural Greeak-Anatolian interactions in the Late Bronze and Early Iron Ages and their echoes in later periods.

Abstract

Partant du principe que la plupart des éléments inscrits du mobilier et immobiliers des tombes véhiculent une information, quelle que soit leur fonction première, les participants de cette table ronde réunis par les jeunes chercheurs de l’équipe « épigraphie et nécropoles » de l’UMR 8546 du CNRS ont cherché à tirer à partir de renseignements strictement matériels des analyses d’ordre social, politique et religieux. L’étude des nécropoles dispose en effet d’un atout essentiel par rapport à celle de l’habitat : la tombe est une structure fixe, généralement close, dans laquelle tout ce qui est placé est en principe destiné à demeurer à jamais. Il y a donc tout loisir de tenter une analyse du système de représentation qui structure le monde des morts. Loin d’être figé, ce dernier s’avère traversé par des dynamiques qui lui confèrent mouvements et trajectoires.

Abstract

Papyrology, which burgeoned in the nineteenth century after the discovery of thousands of papyri in Egypt, consists in the study of Greek and Latin texts written on a transportable medium (papyrus, clay potsherds, wooden tablets or parchment). While inscriptions and literary sources can render a normative, idealized and sometimes deformed image of individuals, papyri – no matter how fragmented they may be – take us into their daily lives, thus making possible the archaeology of cultural practices. Attempting to decipher “these shreds, guardians of the human memory” – to paraphrase Leonardo de Vinci – is the challenge of the papyrologist, who ceaselessly renews our knowledge of the past.

Abstract

Dans le cadre d’une étude des relations de l’Inde avec les pays étrangers, le présent volume réunit deux articles consacrés aux échanges de biens et d’idées entre l’Inde et l’Empire romain. Le premier est consacré aux échanges de l’Inde et de Rome aux premiers siècles de l’ère chrétienne, les communications entre ces deux grands foyers de civilisation étant bien attestées par les textes grecs et latins et confirmées par les textes indiens et par les découvertes archéologiques. Le second s’intéresse à un texte attestant d’une connaissance approfondie de la philosophie brahmanique dans l’Antiquité classique: un exposé grec de cette philosophie rédigé au IIIe siècle, l’Elenchos, est ici traduit en français, commenté et interprété à la lumière des Upaniṣad.
