This book was released on 2022-01-19 with total page 372 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The volume offers a timely (re-)appraisal of Seleukid cultural dynamics. While the engagement of Seleukid kings with local populations and the issue of “Hellenization” are still debated, a movement away from the Greco-centric approach to the study of the sources has gained pace. Increasingly textual sources are read alongside archaeological and numismatic evidence, and relevant near-eastern records are consulted. Our study of Seleukid kingship adheres to two game-changing principles: 1. We are not interested in judging the Seleukids as “strong” or “weak” whether in their interactions with other Hellenistic kingdoms or with the populations they ruled. 2. While appreciating the value of the social imaginaries approach (Stavrianopoulou, 2013), we argue that the use of ethnic identity in antiquity remains problematic. Through a pluralistic approach, in line with the complex cultural considerations that informed Seleukid royal agendas, we examine the concept of kingship and its gender aspects; tensions between centre and periphery; the level of “acculturation” intended and achieved under the Seleukids; the Seleukid-Ptolemaic interrelations. As rulers of a multi-cultural empire, the Seleukids were deeply aware of cultural politics.

Book excerpt: The study of royal women has been one of the most dynamic fields of inquiry into the Hellenistic world (ca. 336-30 BC) and has dramatically shifted our perceptions of gender, status, and influence in the ancient world. Amid numerous works on the Ptolemies, Antigonids, and Argeads, this volume is the first to examine the roles and representations of the women of the Seleukid dynasty and its clients. These royal women were born or married into a dynasty that ruled an empire spanning dozens of cultures and languages, encompassing territory from western Asia Minor to modern-day Afghanistan. As representatives of their family's prestige, they were highly influential in shaping the culture and legacy of this Empire that spanned East and West. The contributions of this volume offer a systematic scrutiny of the representation of female Seleukids in visual and textual media. Avoiding Eurocentric perspectives in favour of embracing the diversity of the Empire, these scholars examine the interaction of Seleukid women with royal traditions ranging from Persia, Bactria, and Judaea to their Hellenistic contemporaries. The result is a landmark achievement in the study of ancient women.

Book excerpt: Lange Zeit hat man das iranische Reich der Sasaniden (3.-7. Jh.) nahezu ausschliealich als militarischen Gegenspieler von Romern und Byzantinern wahrgenommen. Der Tagungsband macht dagegen die Vielfalt der politischen, wirtschaftlichen und kulturellen Kontakte zwischen Ost und West in ihrer Zeit sowie der romischen Iran- und der iranischen Rombilder ebenso deutlich wie die Spezifika des ostlichen Reiches.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Die Hamburger Colloquia Attica I-III fanden zu den Themen Fluchtafeln, Recht und Archaik statt. Eine Auswahl der dort gehaltenen Vortrage prasentiert dieser Band. Ein erster Teil widmet sich dem krisenhaften Ubergang von der Archaik zur fruhen Klassik, der sich in einer Welle der Gesetzeskodifikationen manifestierte (in Athen im drakontischen Totschlagsrecht und der Gesetzgebung Solons) - aber auch in Veranderungen in der Korperkultur und im Konsumverhalten. Daruber hinaus wird das Recht der klassischen Polis am Beispiel der bisher vernachlassigten Amnestie von 405/4 v. Chr. dargestellt, erganzt durch einen Forschungsuberblick zum Vertragsrecht. Ein Pladoyer fur eine genauere Definition der Begriffe "heiliges Recht" und "heilige Gesetze" leitet uber zum zweiten Teil, in dem Projekte zur Magie in einen fruchtbaren Dialog miteinander gebracht werden: von der Neuedition der attischen Fluchtafeln durch das Berliner Inscriptiones Graecae-Projekt uber die Magdeburger Datenbank zur Erfassung aller antiken Fluchtafeln bis hin zu einer englischen Leseedition aller athenischen Tafelchen. Der Band vermittelt damit einen konzisen Uberblick uber jungste Debatten und aktuelle Projekte zum antiken Athen.
