The 21st volume of SAAC!

The 21st volume of SAAC!

We have a pleasure to announce that the 21st volume of SAAC has been published. The newest publication contains twelve papers touching a variety of subjects. It is a well-balanced volume including three articles about ancient Egypt: 1. Robert kuhn writes about burial practices in the Early Dynastic period, 2. Paul Nicholson about pottery production mechanisms and 3. Diana Liesegang about Ramesses III under the influence of personal religion. The next texts take us to ancient Cyprus where mysterious temple-boys figurines were prouced and Maciej Wacławik comments on them, and Greece as a centre for pottery production (please, note articles by Agata Kubala and Inga Głuszek). Turning to ancient Rome, Kamil Kopij wonders when did Pompey the Great engage in his imitatio Alexandri? while Alexis Bonnefoy and Michel Feugere comment on the controvertial bronze figurine of Hermes Dionysophore - Le Bronze Lormier. The 21st volume of SAAC offers substantial contributions to the glyptic studies as Graca Cravinho discusses more than 70 Roman engraved gemstones from the National Archaeological Museum in Lisbon and Jean-Louis Podvin presents another view point on the amulet discovered in 2011 in Nea Paphos, Cyprus that was originally published by Joachim Śliwa in the 17th volume of SAAC (2013). Moreover, Hadrien J. Rambach proves archival research to bring fruitful results on the history of gem collecting and he gives us a wonderful reconstruction of several gems previously considered lost for science forever. Finally, a team of Polish scholars (Mateusz Bogucki, Arkadiusz Dymowski and Grzegorz Śnieżko) comments on the afterlife of ancient coins in the territory of present-day Poland in the medieval and modern periods.
