Die Außenbeziehungen pontischer und kleinasiatischer Städte in hellenistischer und römischer Zeit

Die Außenbeziehungen pontischer und kleinasiatischer Städte in hellenistischer und römischer Zeit.  

Akten einer deutsch-rumänischen Tagung in Constanƫa, 20.–24. September 2010


Palilia 20 - A. W. Busch, Militär in Rom. Militärische und paramilitärische Einheiten im kaiserzeitlichen Stadtbild.

In the Republican period Rome was considered a “demilitarised” zone. Under Augustus soldiers were stationed in the imperial capital for the first time, making a decisive turning point between Republic and Principate. Between 10,000 and 40,000 soldiers lived and worked in Imperial Rome and constituted an important part of the civic culture of the city. The subject of this book is the military in the city of Rome in all its aspects, especially the multiple layers of its cultural image, its effect on the urban population, and its significance for civilian life in the capital.


Palilia 21 - A. Schwarzmaier, Die Masken aus der Nekropole von Lipari.

In the necropolis of Lipari, large numbers of clay masks from the 4th and early 3rd Century BC have been found that represent an important local feature. They are based in their form on theatrical masks from the same period and are therefore regarded for their value as sources of insight into ancient theater.


Palilia 22 - F. Bubenheimer-Erhart, Die »ägyptische Grotte« von Vulci. Zum Beginn der Archäologie als wissenschaftliche Disziplin.

The Egyptian grotto, as the Isis-Tomb of Vulci was called when it was discovered in the nineteenth century, is one of the most prominent tombs of the orientalising period in Etruria. Friederike Bubenheimer-Erhart presents in this volume many important documents of the time, on the basis of which she undertakes a fundamental reconstruction of this Etruscan sepulchre.


Palilia 23 - Krise und Wandel. Süditalien im 4. und 3. Jahrhundert v. Chr. Internationaler Kongress anlässlich des 65. Geburtstages von Dieter Mertens

During the fourth and third centuries BC, Sicily and South Italy were the site of almost incessant conflicts between their indigenous peoples, Greek settlers, Punic colonists, and Roman conquerors. Their cities and villages offer great opportunity for the study of the ensuing political and military crises and their cultural and economic repercussions.


Palilia 24 - J. Lipps, Die Basilica Aemilia am Forum Romanum. Der kaiserzeitliche Bau und seine Ornamentik

The Basilica Aemilia in the Forum Romanum is one of the most important buildings of ancient Rome due to its location, size and architecture. It is also especially well preserved in comparison with many other ancient buildings, and yet it has received very little attention in the scholarship. This study assembles and documents the surviving, Imperial-period remains of the building. This forms the basis for a detailed reconstruction of the building’s architecture, origins, and evolution.


Palilia 25 - M. Tombrägel, Die republikanischen Otiumvillen von Tivoli

The territory of the rural Latin town of Tibur (Tivoli) constituted one of the most important sites of Roman villa culture in the Republican period. In the summertime, Roman senators were attracted by the cool atmosphere of the Tiburtine slopes in order to escape the bad climatic and narrow spatial conditions in Rome. In his study, Martin Tombrägel discusses the architectural genesis of the earliest Roman otium-villas at Tivoli. A series of imposing elite residences were built here from the early 2nd century B.C.


Palilia 26 - W. Ehrhardt, Dekorations- und Wohnkontext. Beseitigung, Restaurierung, Verschmelzung und Konservierung von Wandbemalungen in den kampanischen Antikenstätten.

In 1873 August Mau published his ground-breaking discovery that the wall paintings in the houses of Pompeii do not date back to the town’s last twenty or thirty years, before it was buried by the Vesuvian ashes in 79 A.D., but to a period of more than two hundred years, documenting domestic culture during the transition from Late Hellenistic to Imperial times. Consequently, the contexts of decoration were stylistically distinguished.


Palilia 27 - F. de Angelis - J.-A. Dickmann - F. Pirson - R. von den Hoff (Hrsg.) Kunst von unten? Stil und Gesellschaft in der antiken Welt von der »arte plebea« bis heute.

Ranuccio Bianchi Bandinelli’s seminal article on the “Arte plebea” (1967) voiced the requirement that classical archaeology be pursued in a new way, as a critical discipline with an explicit historical orientation. In Germany this desideratum was substantiated and gained currency mainly thanks to the work of Paul Zanker. Since then the analysis of the relationship between form, content, and the social locus of ancient works of art defines broad sectors of classical archaeology.


Sophie Helas, Selinus II. Die punische Stadt auf der Akropolis. Sonderschriften des DAI Rom 15

Im Jahr 409 v. Chr. wurde die griechische Koloniestadt Selinunt auf Sizilien von den Karthagern erobert und geriet unter punische Oberherrschaft. Nachdem der Ort in der Folgezeit vorwiegend als militärischer Stützpunkt gedient hatte, blühte das punische Selinunt am Ende des 4. Jahrhundert neu auf. Der Wiederaufbau erfolgte, wie anhand von charakteristischen Veränderungen in Urbanistik, im Wohnungsbau und in den Bautechnologien gezeigt werden kann, im Gegensatz zur griechischen Vorgängerstadt in punischer Tradition.
