Aphrodisias in Late Antiquity 2004

[Close Print-Friendly Version]


In the preparation of this publication we have used and reproduced transcriptions and drawings by several previous visitors: Robert 'Palmyra' Wood, John Gandy Deering, W. Kubitschek and W. Reichel, and P. Boulanger. The notebooks and squeezes of Reichel and Kubitschek are kept by the Kleinasiatische Kommission in Vienna; Wood's papers are in the possession of the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies. We are grateful to both institutions for access to these records.

In one case, that of John Gandy Deering, we have prepared a catalogue and facsimiles of his entire notebook (given to us by Madame Louis Robert after the death of her husband).

Deering only copied one of the texts presented in this particular group (no 22); but we decided to publish the whole notebook as an example of what might be done with such material. We hope in due course to do the same with other notebooks, and to encourage other archive holders to make their material available.
