Sagesse et genre. Une approche biblique
= Paper =
 
by Stéphanie S. ANTHONIOZ. — This article aims at proposing a study of wisdom and more precisely of sages, both men and women, be they called ḥākām or ḥakāmâ, and reflect upon the question of gender. A brief overview of biblical references seems to show the lack of concern for women sages. However many are they who have been held in high esteem for their wise behavior as the woman from Teqoa (2 Sam 14:1-24), the woman from Avel-Beth-Maaka (2 Sam 20:14-21), Rahab, the prostitute (Jos 2:1-24), Avigaïl, the beautiful woman (1 Sam 25:2-42) and also the woman who killed Abimelek (Jg 9:53). Their…

An amphora with painted marks from Himera
= Paper =
 
by Rosario Maria ANZALONE. — This paper presents a ‘pseudo-Chian’ amphora from the habitation area of Himera. The vessel is noteworthy for the presence of several red painted marks. Probably produced in southern Campania during the last quarter of the 5th century BC, the amphora was made for the transport and storage of wine. A numeral notation on the shoulder is particularly interesting: as it is inconsistent with the estimated capacity of the vase, I suggest that it may allude to the price of the contents. The amphora from Himera presents…

La lavorazione del ferro a Populonia. Considerazioni topografiche e cronologiche
= Paper =
 
by Andrea CAMILLI. — Cette contribution a pour objectif de réexaminer toutes les données actuellement disponibles sur la production du fer de l’île d’Elbe à Populonia. L’examen des données, provenant de l’exploitation moderne des scories ferreuses, a permis la reconstruction des phases historiques de la fabrication du fer. Les différentes productions apparaissent dans le courant du VIe siècle avant J.-C. et leur distribution sur le territoire est étroitement liée aux espaces funéraires, révélant ainsi un contrôle direct de l’industrie ferreuse de la part des élites. Avec l’entrée, sans doute violente, de…

Prolégomènes à l’étude des relations de pouvoir entre les entités animées dans KTU 1.1-6. Cadre relationnel de ʿAnatu et Baʿlu
= Paper =
 
by Vanessa JULOUX. — It has been commonly understood that Baʿlu and ʿAnatu are sometimes lovers, sometimes brother and sister, sometimes both. Thanks to fallibilism, new fields of investigations have now become possible, thereby challenging any deterministic dogma. By combining pragmatics (utterance comprehension in context), philosophy of action (motivation and intentionality), empiricism and deontic power (rights and obligations), I investigate…

by Guy LABARRE, Mehmet ÖZSAIT, Ilhan GÜCEREN. — Two new fortifications of the Roman period, founded in Pisidia to the south of the Eğirdir’s lake, are analysed in this article in relation with the insecurity and the banditry. They give evidence of two opposed forms of relations between space and power. The fortified place of Yuvalı protected the southern part of the territory of Tymbriada, the cultivated soil and a secondary road. The wall of fortification founded…

Camillus. Une transposition du grec "Gamilios" ?
= Paper =
 
by Marcel MEULDER. — The word ‘Camillus’ refers to a servant of the flamen Dialis and to an young taking part to a formal wedding; it derives through the Etruscan language from the Greek word gamίlioV meaning “nuptial”. In his De lingua Latina, Varro gives to this word camillus a false etymology; he establishes a link to the Greek word kάsmiloV that refers in the Samothracian mysteries to Hermes as a servant of the Great Gods. By this false etymology, Varro…

Lo "stipendium" legionario da 75 denari

by Luigi PEDRONI. — Dans cet article, on présente quelques observations sur le "stipendium" des légionnaires romains au IIIe siècle av. J.-C., basées sur la constatation que ses différentes augmentations in époque tardo-republicaine et l’impériale sont modulés sur la somme de 75 asses. On peut supposer, donc, que le chiffre de 75 avait pris valeur standard à partir du moment où le stipendium…
