    Alpsten, M. 2016. Athenaeus The learned banqueters. A study of the purpose and content from a beverage perspective

    The objective of this paper is to explore the purpose or purposes with which the Greek author Athenaeus wrote his extensive work, The Learned Banqueters. The basis for this study is a survey of the different beverages, i.e. wine, water, milk, blood, beer and gruel, Athenaeus writes about in his work. The objective of the thesis is also to lift up what Athenaeus writes about these drinks. The Athenaeus text has been closed read (close reading) and various questions were posed to the text, a number of structural concepts have been used, and these, together with the above questions, are a good way to reveal Athenaeus’ purpose. The results have shown that Athenaeus probably wanted to write an encyclopedia, for his books show a strong desire to inform the reader about various phenomena and things. But it was no ordinary reference book he wrote but a reference book about Greek customs and traditions. His purpose was that in the Roman time he lived in influencing people to return to a, for him, remote but magnificent ancient Greece.

    Attitudes towards the Past in Antiquity. Creating Identities: Proceedings of an International Conference held at Stockholm University 15-17 May 20092014Conference proceedings (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume brings together twenty-eight papers from an International conference on attitudes towards the past and the creating of identities in Antiquity. The volume addresses many different approaches to these issues, spanning over many centuries, ranging in time from the Prehistoric periods to the Late Antiquity, and covering large areas, from Britain to Greece and Italy and to Asia Minor and Cyprus.

    The papers deal with several important problems, such as the use of tradition and memory in shaping an individual or a collective identity, continuity and/or change and the efforts to connect the past with the present. Among the topics discussed are the interpretation of literary texts, e.g. a play by Plautus, the Aeneid, a speech by Lykurgos, poems by Claudian and Prudentius, and of historical texts and inscriptions, e.g. funerary epigrams, and the analysis of the iconography of Roman coins, Etruscan reliefs, Pompeian and Etruscan frescoes and Cypriote sculpture, and of architectural remains of houses, tombs and temples. Other topics are religious festivals, such as the Lupercalia, foundation myths, the image of the emperor on coins and in literature, the significance of intra-urban burials, forgeries connected with the Trojan War, Hippocrates and Roman martyrs.

    In this article we compare how ‘slavery’, among Indian population during the colonization in Latin America, is represented in History schoolbooks both in Sweden and in Colombia. The aim of the subject is an intent to point out similarities and differences in the reproduction in both countries. The study shows that Colombian schoolbooks transmit more profound information and give more space to the facts. However, in the schoolbooks of both countries, the connection between the hard work burden which the slavery ment and the change for the worst of the immunsystem in the explinations of the diminishing of the Latin-American indigenous population.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article we compare how the native population of Latin America and their culture is represented in History schoolbooks both in Sweden and in Colombia. The aim was to find out if there are differences and similarities in the reproduction of the native community in both countries. The study shows that Colombian schoolbooks give information more thoroughly, describing and explaining the facts, however, both countries consistently show the trend to represent the natives as being different and inferior, especially when describing their way of living and their knowledge. We find explanations about what they owned and what they did not own, what they knew and did not know, all focused from a Eurocentric perspective.

    Magi i antikens Rom: En undersökning av förbannelsetavlor2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The practice of magic was common in the Ancient Greek and Roman Worlds. Curse tablets, astrology, divination and demonology were all common practices within the Ancient religions, but whether or not we can draw a distinct line between magic and religion in regards to ancient practices is a much more complicated and much discussed question. This study will be concerned with curse tablets in Latin from the Roman world. The time period will be focused on the second to the fourth centuries A.D. The ancient curse tablets can be divided into five categories, depending on what subject they are dealing with. These categories are: litigation curses, competition curses, trade curses, erotic curses and prayers for justice. This study will be looking at ways to define the modern concept of magic and set up a number of criteria that will be applied to different types of curse tablets in order to investigate if or to what degree curse tablets can be said to be dealing with magic. It will also investigate if certain categories of curse tablets can be said to be more magical than others. The study shows that all categories except prayers for justice relates well with the modern criteria for magic.

    Third Millennium Cuneiform Texts in a Swedish Private Collection2014In: Cuneiform Digital Library Bulletin, ISSN 1540-8760, Vol. 1, 1-11 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Three early Mesopotamian cuneiform documents are studied and treated. One is a contract dealing with the acquisition of fields in the Early Dynastic Sumerian city of Šuruppag (ca 2600 BCE); one is a foundation document written on a clay cone commemorating the building of a temple by Gudea, governor of the city-state of Lagaš (ca 2120 BCE); one is a small administrative text from the eighth year of the reign of the Ur III king Šu-Su'en (ca 2030 BCE). The barley to copper equivalency found in some Early Dynastic Šuruppag contracts is discussed based on information in the first text.

    Crossing the Bridge: An Interpretation of the Archaeological Remains in the Etruscan Bridge Complex at San Giovenale, Etruria2005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis discusses the archaeological remains in the Etruscan bridge complex, found during the excavations at San Giovenale in 1959–1963, and 1999. The aim has been to reach a holistic perspective of the bridge complex with the bridge seen as a link between topography, economy, social relationships, politics, symbols and ritual, reflecting its importance for the whole community at San Giovenale and its surroundings. Situated at the border between the two largest city-states Tarquinia and Caere, the site seems to have been an important middle range transit town for foreign ideas, goods and people.

    The character of the remains and the various levels of contextual analyses made it possible to distinguish five distinctive functions for the structures at the bridge over the Pietrisco. From a more generalised point of view these suggested that specialized functions may be divided into practical, social and symbolic functions and these aspects have been of help in identifying an object or a structure. Besides practical functions of everyday use, economic and strategic functions have also been considered.

    These functions were more or less in use contemporaneously, at least during several hundred years, from about the middle of the 6th down to the first century B.C. Pottery and small finds show that some activity has taken place at the site from the 9th century. Features of continuity, such as in the choice of crossing, the direction of the bridge construction after its destruction, the architectural ground-plans, the use of basins and a well, pottery fabrics of local and Greek imports and shapes, as well as changes in ground-plans, slight changes in the environment due to water erosion, earth-quakes and slides, have been observed. The physical as well as the liminal boundary between land and water as well as between man and spirits was accentuated by the tufa building, the water installations, and the road at the northern abutment. The thesis raises the hypothesis that the Etruscans believed that a crossing of a river via a bridge could violate the spirits of nature on land and in the water and therefore special rites were needed to restore the balance between nature and man before entering the bridge in order to reach safely at the other side of the ravine. The bridge itself can be seen as sacred, a liminal area where time and space do not exist and a place where it is easy to gain contact with the supernatural world.

    Constructing Athenian Masculinities: Masculinities in Theophrastus' Characters and Menander's Comedies2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the construction of masculinities in Theophrastus’ Characters and Menander’s comedies. As these works were written in early Hellenistic Athens during a period of great political and social changes, there is reason to assume that also the construction of gender changed. The aim of the study is to identify the hegemonic masculinity in the literary sources and see how it and other masculinities were constructed. This is carried out with the help of contemporary critical theories on men and masculinities, especially R. W. Connell’s theory of hegemonic masculinity and perspectives of intersectionality. The study argues that the use of contemporary theories helps to broaden the understanding of gender in antiquity.

    With the use of Connell’s theory on hegemonic masculinity a complex picture of masculinities emerges that intersects several social constructions including age, financial and social belonging. The hegemonic masculinity that emerges is one of Athenian citizenship at the age of being a kyrios with an oikos that contained children. It is also a masculinity that is dependent on fulfilling or obtaining the three virtues of sophrosyne, autarkeia and philantropia. The hegemonic masculinity seems to be one of nostalgia, focusing on how the contemporaries of Theophrastus and Menander perceived the hegemonic masculinity of a past era when Athens was one of the great powers in the region without foreign domination and interference.

    The study shows that, as in Connell’s theory, the hegemonic masculinity was one that no single male could obtain or maintain for any longer period of time. It is also the case that all gender relates in one way or another to the hegemonic masculinity.

    Cutting the Gordion knot: The iconography of Megaron 2 at Gordion2015In: Opuscula: Annual of the Swedish Institutes at Athens and Rome, ISSN 2000-0898, Vol. 8, 85-108 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the incised drawings of Early Phrygian Gordion, and in particular those of Megaton 2. Aspects of their iconographic and archaeological contexts are taken in to consideration, as well as literary sources and especially the story of the Gordian knot. The focus of the study is a series of incised labyrinths, which have hitherto not been recognized as such, but which are of particular interest for the analysis of this building. The myth of Theseus and the Minotaur in the labyrinth helps to throw light on both the images of Megaton 2 but also on the story of the Gordion knot, and how these are interlinked with each other. It is suggested that Ariadne's ball of thread and the Gordian knot are two different expressions of a similar concept; both represent sovereignty provided by a Goddess. Megaron 2 seems to have been a building that was intimately connected with both the king and the Phrygian Mother Goddess.

    Abstract [en]

    This volume contains studies on Classical Antiquity presented to Professor Pontus Hellström on his 75th birthday in January 2014. The 41 papers cover subjects ranging from the Etruscans and Rome in the west, to Greece, the landscape of Karia, and to the Sanctuary of Zeus at Labraunda. Many papers deal with new discoveries at Labraunda, but sites in the surrounding area, such as Alabanda, Iasos, and Halikarnassos are well represented, as well as Ephesos and Smyrna. Many architectural studies are included, and these examine both Labraundan buildings and topics such as masonry, Vitruvius, the Erechtheion, stoas, watermills, and Lelegian houses. Other papers deal with ancient coins, ancient music, Greek meatballs, and Karian theories on the origin of ancient Greece.

    Labraunda in late antiquity c. 300-600 A.D.2010Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis presents my work on five late-antique buildings discovered inLabraunda, divided into five parts. Part I discusses the East Church, PartII the recent work at the Tetraconch, Part III the South Thermae, Part IVthe remains of late-antique structures at the Oikoi building and finallyPart V the most recent work at the West Church. The thesis is put togetherfrom six separate articles that have been slightly revised in order to forma continuous text. The first published article New research on CarianLabraunda in late antiquity,1 was mainly a general survey of thelate-antique buildings and architectural marbles excavated at Labraundabetween 1948 and 1960. The section on the Byzantine Church, here called theEast Church (in Part I), was primarily based on my M.A. thesis TheByzantine Church at Labraunda.2 A more detailed architectural analysis onthe East Church was presented in the paper Recent research on the churchesof Labraunda at the 60-year-anniversary symposium of the excavations atLabraunda, held at the Royal Academy of Letters History and Antiquities inStockholm in November of 2008.3 I have published two more articles on theEast Church focusing on the excavations of 2005-2007. The article theByzantine Churches,4 was a descriptive account for the excavation reportbut also with a short note on the restoration work inside the SouthThermae, cf. part 3.1. The article Late-antique glass in sacred context: ahagiasma at Carian Labraunda,5 was an attempt to contextualize the glassfound inside the apse-channel of the East Church; an important find, whichI consider to be the possible genesis of the site as a Christian sanctuary.Part II, deals with the Tetraconch complex from an architectural point ofview, but also the discussion of private establishments in a supposedextra-urban, sanctuary context. It is based on two preliminaryarchaeological reports on the excavations of 2008-2009.6 However, much hasbeen added to this section that has not previously been published. PartsIII and IV, are both mainly based on the first survey of the site in 2006,7but the section on the South Thermae has, as mentioned above, also beensupplemented with the small section on the restoration of 2007. The finalsection, Part V, focuses on the so-called West Church, and is based on thepreliminary archaeological report of 2009.8 Short reports on the marbleambo found in 2007, have been published in several articles.

    THE BYZANTINE CHURCH AT LABRAUNDA2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the Christian context of the former pagan sanctuary of Zeus Labrandeusin Caria during the Early Byzantine period, ca. 325-730 A.D. The focus is on the church, positioned outside the pagan sanctuary’s temenos area. The architecture of the church has been empirically analysed. It is argued that the church shows strong Syrian influences. The Syrian features are a tripartite sanctuary enclosed by a straight back wall, an interior supported by pilasters and a west part with two towers. The study of the architecture has also been used in an attempt to discuss the liturgy at Labraunda.The finds from the excavations of 1951-2005 have been categorized and examined in order to establish a terminus post quem for the Christian presence at the site of the church. This has been crucial for the dating of the church. Furthermore, the finds illustrate the social and economic conditions that prevailed at Labraunda during the Early Byzantine period. Finally, this study tries to enlighten the process of transition from a pagan sanctuary into a Christian place of worship.

    Sacred Movement to Labraunda - an Archaeological Perspective2012In: HEROM - Journal on Hellenistic and Roman Material Culture, ISSN 2294-4273, Vol. 1, no 1, 157-195 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sacred movement to the Karian sanctuary of Labraunda in Late Antiquity is here for the first time closely examined. The focus is set on scrutinizing the material remains that emerged from these journeys, and this will be further supplemented by a brief survey of what is known about the equivalent occur- rence in the Imperial period. It is argued that Labraunda's strategic location along the mountain passage between the Mylasa plain and the Karian inland provided safe over-night accommodation and trade opportunities, which consequently stimulated the economy of the sanctuary. Two churches have been excavated immediately outside of the ancient temenoswall, dating from the foundation of Labraunda as a Christian locus sanctus during the early fifth century. The topography of Labraunda with its rich water sources and fertile terraces, along with the eco- nomically fortunate locality, formed an appealing milieu that kept the site's importance also during the Byzantine Middle period.

    Bysans som gränsland i Julia Kristevas roman Murder in Byzantium2009In: Bysantinska sällskapet Bulletin, ISSN 1102-674X, Vol. 27, 5-18 p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the notion of Byzantium and Byzantium’s potential capacities as a multifaceted borderland, as shaped and perceived in Julia Kristeva’s novel Murder in Byzantium. In spite of its title, this is not a historical, but rather a so-called total novel, which reconciles several different plots – romantic, criminal, political and philosophical. It relies on both fictive and historical texts, especially on The Alexiad, written in the 12th  century by the Byzantine princess and the first female historian ever, Anna Comnena. Through a literary analysis, this article shows how Byzantium is shaped in the novel by transgressions of the borders of narration, identity, space and time. Byzantium is thus of great interest to the general public and an academic discussion of borders, origin, history and culture, so important for the discussion of Europe’s role today in – or, as suggested in the novel, perhaps between – Eastern and Western cultures.

    Caught in a trap: landscape and climate implications of the insect fauna from a Roman well in Sherwood Forest2016In: Archaeological and Anthropological Sciences, ISSN 1866-9557, E-ISSN 1866-9565, 1-16 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire is often considered a well preserved ancient landscape, subsequently having survived by way of centuries of management as a hunting preserve. Archaeological evidence suggests otherwise, with an enclosed landscape beginning in the pre-Roman Iron Age and continuing through the Romanperiod. Due to the nature of the region's soils, however, there is little empirical, palaeoecological evidence on its environmental history prior to the medieval period. This paper presents an insect fauna from a Roman well in a small enclosure in north Nottinghamshire, on the edge of Sherwood Forest, and its interpretation in terms of contemporary land use. Wells and small pools act as large pitfall traps and mayeffectively sample aspects of the local and regional insect fauna. The Wild Goose Cottage fauna and its environmental implications are also compared with a number of archaeologically and geographically similar contexts.
