David Robinson was an excavator whose work in Olynthos is still consulted by archaeologists today. In this piece he gives an account of the remains at the site of ancient Sinope and its history. Sinope has a long and rich history of settlement due to its location on the Black Sea, a major trading hub between Europe and Asia. Occupied by Hittites, Greeks, Romans, Persians, and Ottomans, it is a key city in understanding the patterns of trade from antiquity to the early modern era.. Robinson's paper provides information on the site of particular interest to Classicists, particularly in today's atmosphere of interest in inter cultural contact and trade between Greece, Rome, and the 'barbarian' world.

The Life & Legend of the Vilna Ger Tzedek Count Walenty Potocki

ISBN: 1-59333-097-9
Walenty Potocki was a young Polish nobleman who abandoned wealth, power, and unlimited worldly prospects to convert to new religion - Judaism. Potocki was betrayed by a member of the religious community he embraced and burned at the stake by the Church he left behind in 1749. This book examines eleven versions of this remarkable man’s story and the heated, previously unpublished, correspondence between the Potocki clan and one of his early biographers. Noble Soul is the record of one man’s defining faith, and of the compelling human need for personal spiritual fulfillment.
