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.

Abstract [en]

The presence of dining-rooms in Greek sanctuaries shows that food was eaten and most likely also cooked on the premises. The study of both the preparation and the cooking of the food eaten in the sanctuaries would be too much, and this paper will therefore concentrate on the presence of cooking stands and braziers in Greek sanctuaries, their uses, and on other related means of carrying the pots. Cooking stands were meant to hold the cooking pots above the fire; they were open at the bottom and were placed in the fire or perhaps rather in the glowing embers of a fire. In Etruria, there were three types (types I-III): a cylindrical stand with a top plate with holes, a half-cylindrical stand with three supports attached to the inner side of the wall, and a barrel-like stand with a narrower top. Cooking braziers had, unlike the cooking stands, a closed bottom as well as the means to carry a pot.

Abstract [fr]

Peut-on décider où les vases étrusques à figures noires étaient produits à partir de leurs lieux de découverte ? Certaines formes ou certains décors ont-ils été privilégiés ? On a choisi d’étudier ici un groupe de vases à figures noires archaïque (le Groupe Pontique, représenté par le Peintre de Tityos) et deux peintres (l’Ivy Leaf Painter et le Peintre de Micati), dont la production couvre une large...

Abstract [en]

Once the Etruscans was a mighty and powerful people, masters of the richest areas of Italy and feared by the other peoples. In almost all the texts in Greek and Roman literature, however, the Etruscans are described as cruel, pirates at sea, living in luxuriousness and allowing their women too much freedom. What we can see now is a people with a very different culture from that of the Greeks and Romans. When the Etruscans started to lose in the battles with the Romans, they were despised and seen by the others as week, unmanly and too fond of an easy living.
