Digital Bank on Aegean Subjects DBAS

Digital Bank on Aegean Subjects DBAS - @egeanLab
logo dbas
DBAS - @egeanLab starts in 2005 as the portal of the Laboratory of Aegean Civilisations of the University of Florence. With the name of "Data Bases about Aegean Subjects", it was initially created as an online resource containing tools for scientific consultation, such as highly specialised Data Bases. Along the years it developed in something more complex and includes now a wider range of contents, especially digitization of museum collections and excavation materials, with scientific and educational aims. Consequently, we decided to maintain the same acronym while changing the whole name in "Digital Bank on Aegean Subjects". Since 2015 the Project belongs to the "Laboratori e centri di ricerca" of the Department SAGAS and the structure of the team has been updated.

Le Collezioni egee del Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Firenze. Il catalogo digitale

Le Collezioni egee del Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Firenze. Il catalogo digitale

a cura di Anna Margherita Jasink, Luca Bombardieri, Giulia Dionisio, Cristian Faralli

Il catalogo digitale è una banca dati dedicata alle collezioni egee del Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Firenze, allegato on line del volume omonimo edito da Firenze University Press. Il catalogo è consultabile anche dal portale di ricerca on-line DBAS (DataBases about Aegean Subjects). 
Nell'architettura del catalogo digitale, la scheda è l'elemento base che raccoglie il complesso delle informazioni relative ad ogni oggetto catalogato. È stata costruita sulla scorta della scheda catalografica del volume con l'aggiunta di voci di maggiore dettaglio relative ad aspetti della tecnologia di produzione (ad esempio per i reperti ceramici: la definizione degli impasti con la descrizione qualitativa e quantitativa delle tempere e degli inclusi) e ad elementi morfo-tipologici. Ogni scheda presenta inoltre un repertorio che comprende immagini a colori (ed una ampia scelta di foto di dettaglio) e una serie di tavole con disegni acquerellati a colori. 
È stato costruito un sistema di queries visualizzato attraverso una maschera di ricerca facilmente consultabile che permette ricerche, singole o incrociate, su quattro campi principali:
1) Provenienza,
2) Datazione,
3) Classe,
4) Tipologia.

Per ognuno dei campi è stata impostata una serie di opzioni di ricerca standard che consentano di facilitare l'interrogazione della banca dati e la consultazione dei risultati ottenuti. La query su un singolo campo, o incrociata su più campi, produce una lista di records e dunque un elenco di oggetti che rispondono ai criteri di ricerca impostati.

Specifiche tecniche

La banca dati si trova su un server Linux. La piattaforma per lo sviluppo delle applicazioni web prevede un'architettura basata sull'utilizzo di Apache 2.2.11 (Unix) per l'interfaccia alla rete, di MySQL 5.0.81-community per la banca dati relazionale e dei linguaggi HTML e PHP per la visualizzazione e l'esecuzione delle pagine dinamiche.

Iconography and archaeology of pre-Roman Italy

Iconography and archaeology of pre-Roman Italy

Icar assembles objects from pre-Roman Italy (Etruscan, Italic and Italiote from the 8th century BC to the Hellenistic period) with figured scenes.

It brings together an abundant iconographic (descriptions, photographs, drawings and modern engravings) and bibliographic documentation, focusing on the archaeological and artistic context, the history of the collections and the interpretation of the figured scenes. A presentation of the objectives and goals of Icar database can be found here.
Three complete corpora are presented :
  • pre-Roman painting : Etruscan, Campanian and Apulian frescoes
  • archaic reliefs from Chiusi
  • hydriae from Cerveteri
as well as complete collections of modern and contemporary graphic documentation :
  • watercolors, tracing copies and facsimiles of Augusto Guido Gatti (first quarter of the 20th century) for the Galleria della pittura etrusca in facsimile of the Archaeological Museum of Florence
Two search modes are offered :
  • Icar, for pre-Roman figured scenes
  • IcarDoc, for reproductions illustrating pre-Roman figured scenes
The programm is conceived and directed by Natacha Lubtchansky, Professor at the François-Rabelais University of Tours - CeTHiS, the computerization carried out by Sylvain Mottet and the Digital Workshop of the Maison des sciences de l’Homme Val de Loire, and the scientific recording of the data is placed under the responsibility of Annick Fenet, AOROC-ENS-Paris.

Open Access Journal: Hypothekai: Journal of the History of Ancient Pedagogical culture

Hypothekai: Journal of the History of Ancient Pedagogical culture
ISSN: 2587- 7127
A journal on the history of ancient pedagogical culture is a peer-reviewed international academic journal established in September 2017. The “Hypothekai” journal publishes research materials on the study, preservation and popularization of ancient pedagogical culture in its historical dynamics. Throughout its pages, within the framework of the themes identified, a wide range of topical issues of the formation of ancient education and the development of ancient educational practices in different historical periods are considered. The journal is published yearly. The languages are Russian and English. The journal’s founder is its editor.

“Hypothekai” is an open access journal. All articles are made freely available to readers immediately upon publication. Our open access policy is in accordance with Chapter 70 “Copyright Law” of the Russian Civil Code and the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI) definition - it means that articles have free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. Full-text versions of articles are available for reading and non-commercial distribution under the international license "Attribution - Non-commercial use 4.0" (Creative Commons Attibution 4.0).

The information about all the articles published is archived in Russian Electronic Scientific Library and “CyberLeninka” Electronic Scientific Library. The direct URL to the journal issues and article metadata (title, author, keywords, abstracts, etc.). The articles’ full texts are stored on the journal’s server and can be accessed through this page.

The title of this collection is Hypothêkai – a polysemantic word (“instructions”, “advice”, “precepts”), which should not mislead the reader: they will not be taught by the ancient texts or tired by some clever advice. This title was suggested by Brett M. Rogers, a specialist in ancient pedagogy and lecturer at the University of Puget Sound, whose knowledge of ancient texts is leagues ahead of mine. I would like to express my deep gratitude to him for this idea as well as for our scientific discussions, during one of which he pointed to the fragments of the precepts of the centaur Kheiron “Hypothêkai of Kheiron” (“Precepts of Kheiron”) often ascribed to Hesiod. According to the legend, that lost poem of collected wisdom was passed to humans by the centaur Kheiron, the famous mentor of Achilles. The collection title just alludes to that lost work, inviting to a deep study of ancient texts. I wish to express a heartfelt gratitude to my colleague, Professor Vitaliy G. Bezrogov for his support and his inspirational insistence on the highest academic standards.\
2017 Issue 1. Mark Tullius Cicero’s concept of education through culture 💾
2018 Issue 2. Teaching through the theater and in the theater: ancient pedagogy of the stage 💾
2019 Issue 3. Education in Late Antiquity 💾
The theme of the third issue is "Education in Late Antiquity". The period of Late Antiquity was a time of rapid transformation of all spheres of social life, the emergence of new and the development of old cultural and religious traditions. In the era of the decline of the Roman Empire the traditions of ancient education experienced their last floutish, marked by activities of such outstanding mentors as Libanius and Choricius, Marius Victorinus and Themistius, Ausonius Hymerius, the functioning of such important educational centers as the schools Athens, Alexandria, Gaza, Burdigala, Beritus. We dedicate the third issue of "Hypothekai" to the studies of a wide range of factors that provided this socio-cultural phenomenon and the interaction of old and new elements of the education life of the Mediterranean world III - VII centuries. The third issue is available in libraries receiving a compulsory copy through the Russian book chamber, as well as in the library of Martin Luter University of Halle-Wittenberg (Collegienstraße, 62a, Lutherstadt Wittenberg), library of University of Lisbonthe library of University of Coimbra (General Library of the University of Coimbra, Largo da Porta Férrea, 3000-447 Coimbra), the library of University of Porto (Reitoria da U.Porto, Praça Gomes Teixeira, 4099-002 Porto, Portugal), the library of University of Warsaw (Dobra 56/66, 00-312 Warszawa), the library of Siedlce University of Natural Sciences and Humanities (ul.
