Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania

Posted by Gabriel Bodard on March 29, 2015

This is the republication of a volume of almost 1,000 inscriptions (almost all in Latin) of the Roman period from Tripolitania (Libya): the original volume was published in 1952, but with very little illustration, and very sketchy maps. This re-edition makes no alterations to the academic content. The new elements are that it includes photographs of almost all the texts, and it maps the data onto the map of Libya in Google Maps or Google Earth.

The twentieth century's leading theorist of tonal music, Heinrich Schenker produced a series of innovative studies and editions between 1903 and 1935 and left behind a voluminous archive of correspondence, diaries and lessonbooks. Edited in near-diplomatic transcription and with English translations, these materials form the core of the edition, supported by additional documents relating to his life, and a set of "profiles" of people, places and organizations with which he came into contact.

Prosopography of the Byzantine World (PBW) aims to record all surviving information about every individual mentioned in Byzantine textual sources, together with as many as possible of the individuals recorded in seal sources, in the period 1025-1261.

Jones in 1950, and sponsored since then by the British Academy.
