Short Description

Alongside quite a few highly valuable series of studies in ancient history and some respectable classical journals - there is no ancient history journal published on a regular basis in Poland. And since we have found the relevant scholarly community productive and lively enough to venture such an enterprise, we decided to run the risk. In addition, the fora where, within the frames of cultural history broadly defined, ancient historians, classical philologists, archaeologists, jurists, and epigraphists - in a word all those who study Greek and Roman antiquity in its material, linguistic or intellectual manifestations - can meet with their Orientalist, Egyptologist etc. counterparts are still extremely rare. Furthermore, it is our intention to try to provide, starting with the second volume in every issue of this journal, an up-to-date overview of the most important books from our discipline published in Poland and/or in Polish that otherwise would hardly have been accessible to the international reader. In many ways, the tutelary patron we have chosen for this new enterprise is therefore appropriate. Palamedes, a civilising hero and a cultural inventor, but also a middleman of a sort and a go-between in the Greco-Trojan conflict, seems to symbolise our plans and ambitions adequately - if only as a figure of the deplorable consequences of the lack of communication between those different ‘camps’ we intend to bring together. Hence, Palamedes warmly welcomes contributors specialising in various disciplines of our broadly defined field, sharing the same eagerness to explore ancient cultures and histories and to apply an interdisciplinary approach in their studies of classical and Near Eastern civilisations.
