Il contesto storico del “Papiro della bulé” (PSI X 1160)
di Livia Capponi pagine: 20 € 6,00
This contribution attempts to reconstruct the historical context in which the Alexandrian oration contained in PSI X 1160 took place. It tackles the evidence of an Augustan suppression of the Alexandrian (and eventually of other) city  councils in Egypt and examines the relationship between PSI X 1160 and the Letter of Claudius to the Alexandrians, P.Lond. VI 1912. It also presents some chronological, palaeographical and prosopographical aspects which may help to place the embassy in PSI X 1160 at the very beginning of the reign of Claudius.
Color in the Greek Medical Papyri from Greco-Roman and Late Antique Egypt
di Dimitrios Roumpekas pagine: 22 € 6,00
This paper deals with color terminology that occurs in the medical papyri and the documentary papyri of medical content from Greco-Roman and Late Antique Egypt. Aim of this study is to detect the color terms used to describe the  drugs and the sick parts of the patients’ bodies. The study helps us to come to conclusions concerning the position of color in the physicians’ and pharmacologists’ thought and works in Egypt, especially as far as the disease diagnose and the determination of the therapeutic properties of various remedies are concerned.

di Gerardo Casanova pagine: 35 € 6,00
In Roman and Byzantine Egypt horses are mentioned in documents of various types, from sales to letters. They were mostly used for the cavalry, horse racing and various “public” functions. They are remembered in private letters  and in proskynemata almost as family members. In case of need, horses were entrusted to the care of veterinary specialists (hippoiatroi).

Zwei Kleinigkeiten zu den koptisch-manichäischen Homilien
di Stefan Bojowald pagine: 6 € 6,00
In this paper, two passages from the Coptic-Manichaean homilies are reanalyzed. In the first case, a new meaning is sought for the verb “ⲣⲉϭⲣⲉϭ” which is explained onomatopoeically in the sense of “to clink”. The second case  involves a new translation for the phrase “ⲙⲟⲩϩ ⲛⲃⲗⲕⲉ” rendered by “inflame in anger”.

Horemakhet/Harmachis nelle foto di Giovanni Fasani: una nota sulla Grande Sfinge di Giza
di Giuseppina Capriotti Vittozzi pagine: 9 € 6,00
Some photographs by Giovanni Fasani, an Italian photographer who worked in Egypt between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century, offer the opportunity to reconsider the Great Sphinx of Giza and its identification, starting from the New Kingdom, with Hor-em-akhet/Harmachis. The photographic shots, taken in a position that is difficult to reach today, show the head of the sphinx emerging on the horizon between the  two great pyramids of Cheops and Chefren, forming an enormous akhet sign. The site of Giza has a clear relationship with the Egyptian concept of horizon, starting from the name of the Cheops funerary complex Akhet-Khufu.  Fasani’s photographs add elements to the dossier, in order to understand the birth of the new deity at the beginning of the New Kingdom, a period characterized by a notable royal commitment to re-establishing the cult also through new institutions.
On the Source of the Νεῖλος
di Alessandro Piccolo pagine: 10 € 6,00
In this paper, it will be argued that the Greek word Νεῖλος (“Nile”) was derived from */'neħl/, the latter being a Phoenician term denoting a water stream, a river valley, a trench/tunnel, a seasonal riverbed ( وادِي ), and, like its Biblical  Hebrew cognate נַ֫חַל , the Nile itself. This new insight could prove useful for shedding some light on the Graeco-Egyptian interactions during the so-called Dark Age of Greece, i.e. from the early Iron Age (12th century BCE)  down to the early Archaic Period (8th century BCE), a stage corresponding to the Third Intermediate Period of Ancient Egypt.
Einige zusätzliche Bemerkungen zum ägyptischen abw-Vogel
di Stefan Bojowald pagine: 5 € 6,00
In this contribution, the Egyptian birdname “abw“ is discussed again. The ornithological species of the bird can be identified with the dove. The evidence for this word amounts to five examples. The secondary form “abaab“ is given  particular weight. The ages of the examples range from the Middle Kingdom to the Ptolemaic period.
Eine neue Erklärung für das Bild des mśti -Schiffes im ägyptischen pAnastasi IV, 10, 4
di Stefan Bojowald pagine: 6 € 6,00
In this contribution, the ship motiv in the Egyptian pAn IV, 10, 4 is tackled again. The phenomenon still seems to await a meaningful explanation. The interpretation given here is based on a connection with the cruciform of mast and  yard.
Karl Hillebrand e Domenico Comparetti
di Anna Maria Voci pagine: 17 € 6,00
Based on some extant letters, the paper describes the relationships between the Italian classical philologist Domenico Comparetti (1835-1927) and two German scholars, the historian and essayist Karl Hillebrand (1829-1884) and  the classical philologist Alfred Schöne (1836- 1918). Their intellectual intercourse is one of many examples of the close relationship between German and Italian scholars during the second half of the 19th century.
