Edward Rand was a prolific scholar of Latin literature published several translations of Horace and Boethius, and also a number of works on the Classical tradition in Western culture and the relevance of the Classics in the modern era. In this essay he describes a key manuscript supporting the fragmentary texts of Ovid, Palladius, and Tacitus acquired by Harvard University. This manuscript still remains one of the few source documents for Tacitus, and author whose work was nearly lost to modernity, and this essay provides illuminating insight into the process by which such fragmentary sources become full texts of ancient literature.

Calling Out to Isis

The Enduring Nubian Presence at Philae
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0715-1
The expansion of the cult of the goddess Isis throughout the Mediterranean world demonstrates the widespread appeal of Egyptian religion in the Greco-Roman period. In this monograph, Ashby focuses on an oft-neglected population in studies of this phenomenon: Nubian worshipers. Through examination of prayer inscriptions and legal agreements engraved on temple walls, as well as Ptolemaic royal decrees and temple imagery, Ashby sheds new light on the involvement of Nubians in the Egyptian temples of Lower Nubia, and further draws comparisons between Nubian cultic practices and the Meroitic royal funerary cult.

Aqueducts and Urbanism in Post-Roman Hispania

ISBN: 978-1-4632-3915-2
Our current knowledge of Roman aqueducts across the Empire is patchy and uneven. Even if the development of “aqueduct studies” (where engineering, archaeology, architecture, hydraulics, and other disciplines converge) in recent years has improved this situation, one of the aspects which has been generally left aside is the chronology of their late antique phases and of their abandonment. In the Iberian peninsula, there is to date, no general overview of the Roman aqueducts, and all the available information is distributed across various publications, which as expected, hardly mention the late phases. This publication tackles this issue by analysing and reassessing the available evidence for the late phases of the Hispanic aqueducts by looking at a wide range of sources of information, many times derived from the recent interest shown by archaeologists and researchers on late antique urbanism.
