The analysis of the epigraphic documents from various sites in the Cabrera de Mar valley reveals a clear predominance of Iberian script over Latin, not only in the Iberian oppidum of Burriac, but also in the late-Republican settlement located in the modern centre of the village of Cabrera de Mar; both probably to be identified in ancient times as…[Read more]
The aim of this chapter is to present the most recent state of the arts on these epigraphies and on the languages that they transmit. The study of these languages is essential to our understanding of colonial Phoenician and Greek literacy, which lies at the root of their growth, as well as of the diffusion of Roman literacy, which played an…[Read more]
Alejandro G. Sinner deposited A central italian coin with Dyonysus/Panther types, and contacts between Central Italy and Spain in the 2nd and 1rst centuries BC in the group Roman Provincial Archaeology on Humanities Commons 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Three “Dionysus / panther” coins are known from Catalonia, one from excavations at Cabrera de Mar. This is a key component of the Central Italian Assemblage of the Italo-Baetican series, and dates to the late 90s/early 80s BC. The excavation coin probably arrived during the Sertorian Wars (80–72 BC), certainly before 50 BC. We therefore revie…[Read more]
Two large complexes of struck lead pieces, from the Roman colony of Minturnae nd from Baetica (southern Spain) in the late Republic, have been documented in recent years. There are close and unique iconographic parallels between them. We accordingly undertook an analysis of the isotopic signatures of the leads used in the two areas, to see if this…[Read more]
Alejandro G. Sinner deposited Methods of Palaeodemography: The Case of the Iberian Oppida and Roman Cities in North‐East Spain in the group Roman Provincial Archaeology on Humanities Commons 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Ancient demography is a recurrent topic in archaeology, thanks to new methods and evidence from different surveys and excavations. However, different cultures or periods are studied on their own, without any comparison being made between them and of their population dynamics. The present paper seeks to advance the situation by defining…[Read more]
The lead stock in the Guerra collection is the first of its category found with an Iberian inscription: baitolo. The most feasible interpretation is to consider it as a place name, either as the name of the city of baitolo/Baetulo, the modern Badalona, which issued coins with the legend baitolo in the 2nd quarter of the 1st c. BC, or as the name…[Read more]
William Caraher deposited The Ambivalent Landscape of Christian Corinth: The Archaeology of Place, Theology, and Politics in a Late Antique City in the group Roman Provincial Archaeology on Humanities Commons 4 months, 4 weeks ago
This chapter argues that the textual and archaeological evidence for imperial involvement in the Corinthia provides faint traces of what Jas Elsner has called “internal friction” in the manifestation of imperial and Corinthian authority in the region.
In der Reihe der in Innsbruck tatigen oder aus Innsbruck stammenden Historiker der ersten Halfte des 20. Jahrhunderts hat Richard Heuberger seinen festen Platz, auch wenn er bis auf wenige Eintrage in den einschlagigen Tiroler und biografischen Lexika auf kein nennenswertes „Nachleben“ zuruckblicken kann1. Allerdings gilt das nicht nur fur ihn…[Read more]

This paper examines structural changes to stone-built granaries at fort sites along Hadrian’s Wall, with particular attention given to the latest phases of alterations that indicate a demolition or changed use of granary buildings.
