    Get PDF
    AIUK 4.1 is the first part of our publication of the Attic inscriptions in the British Museum, which is designed to supersede E. L. Hicks ed., Ancient Greek Inscriptions in the British Museum. Part I (Attika) (1874), as supplemented by the Attic material included in F. H. Marshall ed. Part IV. Section II (1916). This part contains new editions of three inscriptions of the 5th century BC which make cult provisions, a boustrophedon altar from the City Eleusinion, a sacrificial calendar, and the ordinances of the deme Skambonidai. In addition to updating the editions in the light of the progress of scholarship since 1874, including new fragments, we improve the current published texts of the inscriptions and make original contributions to their interpretation. We also discuss the history of their acquisition by the Museum in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the roles played by Richard Chandler, the Society of Dilettanti and Lord Elgin

    An introduction to the Byzantine administration in Syro-Palestine on the eve of the Arab conquest

    The work is an introduction to the topic of the Byzantine administration in Syro-Palestine between the reign of Justinian the Great and Heraclius. The book is based both on a thorough analysis of primary sources and on a skillful use of scholarly literature, produced by all the important centres of Byzantine studies. The author combines the findings of other scholars into a coherent whole, discussing a variety of phenomena which characterized the operation of the provincial administration in Syro-Palestine. The work’s main focus is on the administrative geography, the prosopography of the governors and duces of the Syro-Palestinian provinces and of the governors of the Diocese of the East. The book is particularly distinctive in its analysis of various issues from three different perspectives. The topic of the monograph is well-chosen. A monographic study devoted to the Syro-Palestinian administration in the period of the Late Roman Empire remains absent from scholarly literature. The topic choice is also determined by the kind of research into Byzantine civilization which the Łódź centre for Byzantine studies has long been involved in carrying out. The way in which the Author approaches the issues dealt with in the book is also fully justified. In addition to juxtaposing a variety of views, scattered throughout a huge body of literature, the Author offers his own original analyses of source material.Udostępnienie publikacji Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego finansowane w ramach projektu „Doskonałość naukowa kluczem do doskonałości kształcenia”.
