Abstract:
Der Zuwachs an Material, den die im Jahr 1884 entdeckte philosophische Inschriftvon Oinoanda (südwestliches Kleinasien) seit 1970 erhalten hat, kann mit Recht alssensationell bezeichnet werden. Die Kenntnis von Diogenes' epikureischem Text galt bis vor kurzem mit den bis 1895 ans Licht gekommenen 88 Steinfragmenten als ,abgeschlossen': es gab den Teubnertext (1967) und den Kommentar mit Übersetzung (1971) von C. W. Chilton als Kodifizierung unserer Kenntnisse.

Abstract:
Als einer der wesentlichsten Beweggründe zur Bildung des Dreibundes Caesar-Crassus-Pompeius im Jahre 60 wird von der Forschung das Scheitern des Pompeius in seinen Anstrengungen, die Veteranen des Feldzuges gegen Mithradates mit Landlosen zu versorgen, betrachtet. Nachdem der Volkstribun L. Flavius wegen der hartnäckigen Opposition des Senates, namentlich des Konsuls Q. Metellus Celer, einer Gesetzesvorlage zur Ansiedlung der Veteranen sowie der Billigung der acta Pompeii nicht habe zum Durchbruch verhelfen können, wäre Pompeius, in seiner Glaubwürdigkeit als Feldherr erschüttert, zu einer Verständigung mit Crassus bereit gewesen und habe sich mit diesem und Caesar verbündet.

Abstract:
IG II 411 ist ein seit fast 150 Jahren bekanntes Bruchstück eines Vertrages zwischendem athenischen Staat und einem Privatmann namens Sokles, der unser Verständnis der attischen Staatswirtschaft um einige interessante Aspekte bereichern könnte, aber wegen der argen Verstümmelung des Textes bisher wenig berücksichtigt wurde.

Abstract:
"Es gab einen Handel innerhalb der Reichsgrenzen und einen externen. Der Umfangdes inneren Marktes war weit größer, wohingegen sich der externe Markt auf Luxusgüterkonzentrierte und für Rom sicherlich ein Passivposten war". Von dieser Feststellung ausgehend soll im folgenden anhand literarischer Evidenz untersucht werden, welchen Stellenwert die Güter des nördlichen Barbarikums auf den römischen Märkten einnahmen. Während bisherige Arbeiten die Rolle des römischen Exportes ins Barbarikum eingehend untersucht haben, blieb der Import von Gütern aus diesem Raum vielfach unbeachtet.

Abstract:
E. Birley hat in seiner Studie Promotion and Transfer in the Roman Army die Offizierskarriere des Ti. Claudius Vitalis (CIL VI 3584 = ILS 2656) mit der des L. Valerius Proclus (CIL III 12411 = ILS 2666 b) in Parallele gesetzt und daraus den Schluß gezogen, daß beide nicht bei einer Beförderungsversetzung, sondern im Rahmen von Mannschaftstransfer zu Beginn der Regierung Hadrians von der Dona u nach Bri tannien gekommen und so in den Centurionat der Legio XX Valeria Victrix eingetreten seien.

Abstract:
Foreigners joining an army for private gain are mercenaries, those doing so for political reasons are allies. By these criteria, Rome, during the Republic, used mostly allies rather than mercenaries whenever she needed foreign manpower or special fighting skills. During the first two centuries of the Empire, when her own citizens no longer readily bore arms, Rome could rely on the plentiful supply of recruits from the provinces and client states and thus had little need for mercenaries.

Abstract:
In their discussions of ostracism as an institution, modern scholars tend to rely on the fuller accounts of relatively late sources (Androtion as quoted by Harpocration, Aristotle, Diodorus Siculus and Plutarch), and little attention is paid to the less systematic evidence found in several earlier literary sources (Cratinus, Aristophanes, Thucydides, [Andocides] 4, Plato, Demosthenes and Theophrastus).

Abstract:
The first five lines of the verso of P.Cair. Masp. II 67188 contain a text described by Maspero as "une priere fortement tentee de gnosticisme". This text can be more fully understood in the light of the Coptie material from Nag Hammadi, discovered long after Maspero's editio princeps. Several of its elements are of interest both linguistically and in the context of sixth-century Egyptian Christianity.

Abstract:
Für die Beurteilung der römischen Bürgerrechtspolitik der Kaiserzeit kommt den epigraphischen Quellen eine besondere Bedeutung zu. Schon seit den Forschungen Th. Mommsens stehen sie, sowohl was die Fragen des Munizipalwesens als auch den Problemkreis des Personenrechts angeht, im Mittelpunkt der Forschungsdiskussion. Ein immer wiederkehrendes Thema soziopolitischer Fragestellungen ist dabei, inwieweit aus dem römischen Nomenklatursystem Rückschlüsse auf die Rechtsstellung der Namensträger oder auf den Zeitpunkt der Bürgerrechtsverleihung getroffen werden können.

Abstract:
In den Jahren 1984 und 1985 hat Th. Tsiaphalias in den Bänden 6 bis 8 der in Larisaerscheinenden Zeitschrift [...] insgesamt 243 neue Inschriften aus Thessalien veröffentlicht. Kopien seiner Beiträge verdanke ich der Liebenswürdigkeit von M. B. Hatzopoulos, der mich auch zuerst auf diese neue und sehr verdienstvolle Publikation aufmerksam gemacht hat. Dem Herausgeber war es offensichtlich darum zu tun, die neuen Texte rasch allgemein zugänglich zu machen, und er hat sich daher im allgemeinen mit wenigen erläuternden Bemerkungen und Literaturhinweisen begnügt.

Abstract:
In his paper 'Les codices documentaires egyptiens', delivered to a Sorbonne colloquium on the origins of the codex in July 1985, Jean Gascou assigned the date and the subject-matter of the Hermopolite Graeco-Coptic account book BM 1075 to the first half of the sixth century, on the basis of its reckoning by talents and myriads of talents (thus identifying the abbreviation-signs, correcting Crum's - based on Kenyon - reading of them as meaning myriads of artabas of grain).

Abstract:
Die Grenze zwischen Moesien und Thrakien hat sich wie jede Grenze entsprechend der konkreten historischen Lage verändert. Die Frage der Grenzlinie in der ersten Hälfte des 2. Jh. wurde oft behandeltl. Das ist sowohl auf den relativen Reichtum an epigraphischen Denkmälern, die diese Grenze kennzeichnen, als auch auf ihren vermeintlich unlogischen Verlauf in der Umgebung von Nicopolis ad Istrum zurückzuführen.

Abstract:
Since 1883, the Roman emperor Commodus’ (180-192 CE) famed concubine Marcia has been identified as Marcia Aurelia Ceionia Demetrias, a woman honored on a statue base in ancient Anagnia, Italy (CILX 5918). This article reexamines the inscription in light of other epigraphic evidence and corrects a longstanding mistake in historical reconstructions of the late-Antonine dynasty. It shows that the woman known as Marcia the powerful courtier and ostensible Christian-sympathizer was not the same as the woman honored on the inscription. They were two different women entirely, as the inscription’s nomenclature, status indication, and date indicate. The Marcia Aurelia Ceionia Demetrias honored on the inscription was a local elite likely married to the imperial freedman who was also honored with her as a civic benefactor in ancient Anagnia (CILX 5917).

Abstract:
In ancient and medieval Greek texts it occurs frequently that well-read authors allude to literary passages without mentioning their sources, thus inviting the reader to discover the underlying intertextuality. The paper deals with such a case in the private letter P.Oslo II 50 (1st - 2nd cent. A.D.), where the author, a certain Severus, alludes to Herodotus I 44, 2, so that he may express his disappointment at the recipient.In den griechischen Texten der Antike und des Mittelalters kommt es des Öfteren vor, daß belesene Autoren auf literarische Stellen anspielen, ohne sie ausdrücklich zu nennen, und damit ihre Leser einladen, die Intertextualität zu erfassen. Der Aufsatz befasst sich mit einem solchen Fall im Privatbrief P.Oslo II 50 (1./2. Jh. n. Chr.), wo der Verfasser, ein gewisser Severus, auf Herodot I 44, 2 anspielt, um seine Enttäuschung über den Adressaten zum Ausdruck zu bringen.

Abstract:
In this article I place the rescript of Philip III Arrhidaios (319/8 BC) in its historical context and offer a new interpretation of its contents. In doing so, I argue three points. First, the rescript's reference to an earlier decision of Alexander the Great elucidates the confusing and frequently debated sequence of tyrannies on Eresos during the years c.337-332 BC. Importantly, it confirms John Bert Lott's argument for two sets of tyrannies at Eresos, not three as has been commonly argued. Second, the rescript elucidates Alexander's actions as hegemon of the League of Corinth in the years 334-332 BC and provides insights into how he balanced, and abused, his roles as League hegemon and Macedonian basileus during the liberation of western Asia Minor. Third, the rescript reveals the continued importance of Alexander the Great and his edicts during the war between his Successors Polyperchon and Kassandros in Greece.

Abstract:
At least one of the Roman inscriptions of the former Habsburgian province of Siebenbürgen (Romania), which came to Vienna in the 18th century and are fixed on the walls of the staircase to the “Prunksaal” of the Austrian National Library today, seems to be a fake. It is the dedication of a certain Scaurianus to I(uppiter) o(ptimus) m(aximus) and the dii Penates (CIL III 1081 = ILS 3951). The lettering is unusual, there are uncommon abbreviation-marks above the letters I. O. M., and the dedicator, believed governor of the province of Dacia, is called just by his cognomen without full name and titles. But another Scaurianus, an imperial slave, is attested in the region. He seems to have been an official of the administration of the Dacian gold-mines (CIL III 1610 = IDR 3/3, 362). It could be possible, that in the 16th century the probably only preserved upper part of his dedication, when they mistook him for the governor, was chiseled to a new marble monument as a decoration to the residence of the princes of Siebenbürgen at Alba Iulia, where we know from an early source the stone had been. The text of the original ancient monument might have run as follows: I(ovi) o(ptimo) m(aximo) / et dis Pe/natibus / Scaurianus / [Caes(aris) ser(vus) vil(icus) / pro se et suis / v(otum) s(olvit) l(ibens) m(erito)].

Abstract:
In 2007, a project commenced to catalogue and to publish the Greek and Latin inscriptions in the Karadeniz Ereğli Museum. The recorded inscriptions are all from Zonguldak province (Eastern Bithynia), which is where the ancient cities of Herakleia Pontike and Tieion/Tios are located. So far, twenty-two new inscriptions held by the Museum have been published in previous papers. In the present paper, one honorary and four new grave inscriptions of the Roman imperial period - found in the districts of Alaplı, Devrek, Gökçebey, and Ereğli, all in Zonguldak province - are presented. Their importance lies in the new information they provide on the social history and prosopography of Herakleia Pontike and Tios/Tieion as well as the ethnicity and the status of individuals in Roman Bithynia. These English translations of those new inscriptions are 1.The uncle Marcus Aemilius? Thalassios, the younger, (honoured) Gnaeus Aemilius Pontikos/Pontianos, son of Gnaeus?. 2.Clodius?, son of …..-siphilos, (died) at the age of 75. Dionysia, daughter of Dionysios?, wife of Clodius, (died) at the age of ?. Farewell! 3. Diomedes, son of Chrysion, (died) at the age of 70. Farewell! Kotta, daughter of Paterion, wife of Diomedes, (died) at the age of 60. Farewell! 4. Dionysios, son of Ninos (died) at the age of ?; Kleopatra, daughter/wife of Dionysios, (died) at the age of ? Farewell! 5. Marcus? Aurelius Opikos, son of Chrysogonos, (grandson of Chrysogonos)?, who was loved by all, excellent, lived examplarily ? years. Farewell! Aurelia Panmoiris, daughter of Chrysogonos, wife of [- - -], lived examplarily ? years. Farewell!

Abstract:
Both Demotic, Greek and Coptic prayers for justice on papyrus and contemporary petitions to civil authorities demonstrate that people displayed and used despair in their narrative and persuasion strategies in order to achieve justice. These overlaps and the expression of despair demonstrate the similarities between the two genres and the similarities in the social and cultural circumstances that produced these texts. They also pinpoint the interdependence of religion and law on a daily basis and for a variety of people.

Abstract:
Der Beitrag bietet die Erstedition eines Hamburger Papyrus aus dem römischen Ägypten. Es handelt sich um den Privatbrief eines signifer an einen unbekannten Adressaten. Der signifer berichtet, dass der praefectus Aegypti eine Prüfung der Kassenführung der signiferi angeoordnet hat. Die herausragende Bedeutung des Textes liegt darin, dass durch ihn erstmals in aller Klarheit zwei Sachverhalte dokumentiert werden, über die sich bisher nur mutmaßen ließ, dass nämlich zum einen in der Finanzverwaltung der römischen Armee zwei unterschiedlich gespeiste „Kassen“ existierten, nämlich das kaiserliche Konto (λόγος Καίσαρος = ratio Caesaris) und die deposita, und dass zum anderen die σημεαφόροι (signiferi) auf beide Kassen Zugriff hatten. The article presents the first edition of a Hamburg papyrus from Roman Egypt. It is a private letter of a signifer to an unknown recipient. The signifer reports that the praefectus Aegypti has ordered an audit of the signiferi’s cash management. The preeminent significance of the text lies in the fact that for the first time, two issues are now clearly documented which have so far only been surmised. First, the financial administration of the Roman army consisted of two separate "cash registers", namely the imperial account (λόγος Καίσαρος = ratio Caesaris) and the deposita. Second, the σημεαφόροι (signiferi) had access to both accounts.

Abstract:
The epigraphic record pertaining to the auxiliary fort from Buciumi is quite scarce. This is especially true for onomastic evidence, indeed virtually none of the members of the local garrison is known to us by name. The graffito discussed in the paper, although incomplete, reveals the names of two individuals: a centurion and a common soldier. While the name of the centurion (Genialis) is quite usual, the miles displays an extremely rare name of uncertain origin (Zanax). The object of the paper is twofold. On one hand it discusses the phenomenon of military graffiti, especially ownership inscriptions, on the other hand it analyses various possibilities regarding the origin of the enigmatic name borne by the soldier in question.

Publikation einer neu gefundenen, hölzernen Wachstafel (tabula cerata) aus Augustobona Tricassium (Troyes, F). Die Schreibtafel ist Überrest einer Vadimonium-Urkunde, ausgestellt in der zweiten Hälfte des 1. Jh. n. Chr. für eine Einwohnerin mit dem keltischen Namen Nerta. Das Dokument wirft Licht auf die Frage nach der Verbreitung und Anwendung des römischen Privatrechts in den gallischen Provinzen. Publication of a recently discovered, wooden wax tablet (tabula cerata) from Augustobona Tricassium (Troyes, F). The writing tablet was part of a vadimonium deed, which was issued to an inhabitant with the Celtic name Nerta in the second half of the 1. century AD. The document sheds light on the question of the diffusion and usage of Roman civil law in the Gallic provinces.

Abstract:
The formulary of ancient magic features an expression, which is object of analysis in the present paper. It consists of the predicate ἐγώ εἰμι followed by the name of one or more gods or daemons. By this, the person reciting the magical spell identified him- or herself with a supernatural entity. A detailed overview of its stylistic and semantic features reveals how the formula is to be counted among those rhetorical devices of the magic act that enhanced its dramatic force. Rather than believing to be actually possessed by some divinity, the speaker-actor of the formula played the role of that divinity, thereby staging the magic ritual as a dialogic performance.

Abstract:
The summer of 357 was a problematic time of overlapping troubles for the Roman Empire in the West. Ammianus Marcellinus is our best or unique source about these events. His account, as usual, shows many signs of strong bias in favour of Julian. But past scholarship has missed other points that enable us to tell a very different tale on this year of warfare. The strategic planning of Constantius II and the tactical leadership of Barbatio were not at all so bad as Ammianus brilliantly enjoins us to believe.

The date of a statue dedication in Rome’s harbour Ostia carried out by North African shipowners in honour of a member of the local elite has until now been misunderstood. A new examination of the inscription, still standing in the so-called Piazzale delle Corporazioni, shows that the statue most likely was inaugurated on 19 September, the birthday of the emperor Antoninus Pius. The choice of day is a sign of imperial loyalty and agrees with a typical Ostian pattern for scheduling important events.

Abstract:
This paper is a contribution to the study of history of the word titulus. After a survey of current scholarship on this topic and a delimitation of the chronological scope and content of the investigation, the author considers some epigraphic and literary occurrences of this Latin term and identifies its different meanings and nuances until the sixth century.

Abstract:
Nine documents from the Duke Papyrus Archive reveal much about the careers of two high-ranking officials and their activities in the Herakleopolite nome during the late second century B.C.: Ariston, ton proton philon, strategos, nomarches and epi ton prosodon, and Lochos, ton proton philon and possibly the well-known strategos of the Thebaid.

Abstract:
In 1993, three incomplete ancient Greek inscriptions came to light in Perth, Western Australia. All were subsequently repatriated to Greece. One from the Roman Imperial period was unpublished, and remained so until very recently. It mentions a citizen of Thessaloniki who is arkhisynagogos of a private association which memorialises a fellow-member. The mention of a certain Iulia Prokla suggests that she may be known from another inscription from that city, and possibly also from one in Rome.
