The Greek and Latin inscriptions in the Collections of Uppsala University By Christer Henriksén (ed.) The present book is the first complete edition of the 24 Greek and Latin inscriptions in the Collection of Classical Antiquities and the Victoria Museum of Uppsala University. It contains an introduction that discusses the various types of inscriptions represented in the collections, their probable provenance and their history as part of the Uppsala collections. After the introduction follows the actual edition, which consists of a new reading of text of each inscription, followed (where possible) by an English translation, a summary of its physical and palaeographical features, and a line-by-line commentary. The commentary explains each text with regard to its contents and discusses points of linguistic, phraseologic, and onomastic interest. Inscriptions of particular interest are provided with separate introductions that place them in a wider historical and social context. While the commentary is intended to be useful both to specialists in epigraphy as well as to the general classicist, it also aims at providing such information that may interest the general public.

Munuscula Romana

Distributed by Astrom Editions. View record at WorldCat. Munuscula Romana. Papers read at a conference in Lund (October 1–2, 1988) in celebration of the re-opening of the Swedish Institute in Rome Edited by Anne-Marie Leander Touati, Eva Rystedt & Örjan Wikander. Preface In October 1988, the Swedish Institute in Rome was reopened after a period of renovation. From the point of view of Classical scholarship in Sweden, this reopening was an event that called for celebration: thus a symposium was held in Lund, on the initiative of the Department of Classical studies at the University, in collaboration with the South Swedish chapter of the Society of Friends of the Institute (October 1–2, 1988). The aim of the symposium was to give an idea of the current range of Swedish scholarship within the Italic and Roman spheres. This research is carried out in numerous disciplines—history (political, social, economic), epigraphy, numismatics, religion, art, etc.—and within broad chronological frames (from prehistory to Late Antiquity). Of the papers read at the symposium, most are presented here, in revised versions. Regrettably, four lectures which contributed to the wide range of subjects, do not appear: P.G. Gierow, ‘The Aeneas legend’, B. Malcus, ‘Towns and landowners in…
