A Catalogue of Centaurs on Greek Pottery
This site is extremely image-intensive, as should be expected. I have made generous use of thumbnails, with full-size images on their own pages or on off-site pages. Still, some pages include dozens of thumbnails and may take a long time to download.
Achaemenid Royal Inscriptions: Home Page
The aim of the Achaemenid Royal Inscriptions project is to create an electronic study edition of the inscriptions of the Achaemenid Persian kings in all of their versions--Old Persian, Elamite, Akkadian, and, where appropriate, Aramaic and Egyptian. The edition is to be accompanied by translations, glossaries, grammatical indexes, basic bibliographic apparatus, basic text critical apparatus, and some graphic apparatus (e.g., plans indicating provenience of the inscriptions, images of exemplars); the texts will be available for downloading and printing. The first stage of the project presents the inscriptions from Persepolis and nearby Naqsh-i Rustam, where the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago carried out excavations between 1931 and 1939,

ANISTORITON History, Archaeology & ArtHistory Journal
Anistoriton is an electronic journal published only on the Internet. It is a free and independent magazine of History, Archaeology & ArtHistory edited by D. I. Loizos and an Editorial Committee. Anistoriton is the Greek word for "ignorant in history". It is an attempt to bridge the gap between professional historians and archaeologists and their specialized research, on the one hand, and the general public, the true history and archaeology lovers, on the other. Contributions of undergraduate and graduate students (papers, analysis etc) as well as other non-specialists for our Viewpoints section are also welcome and encouraged.
Apuleius, Apologia: seminar
This web site is an attempt to redress that balance as part of an experiment in philology, pedagogy, and scholarly discourse. The text at hand is the Apologia of Apuleius, the declamation by which he defended himself on a capital charge of at least magic and possibly murder, all apparently arising out of jealousies raised by his marriage to a distinguished older woman. This site has been created by and through the work of a seminar conducted in the spring of 1996 at the University of Pennsylvania, with additional participation by colleagues elsewhere. I am particularly grateful to Thomas McCreight of Loyola College, Baltimore, for collegial advice (not always heeded) and for joining the seminar in Philadelphia for one memorable afternoon.

Byzantine Architecture Project
Over the past several years, Professor Ahmet Cakmak, of Princeton University's Department of Civil Engineering and Operations Research has undertaken the structural analysis, under earthquake loads, of the Hagia Sophia. The Hagia Sophia is a major museum (formerly church and mosque) in Istanbul, Turkey, built by the Emperor Justinian during the 6th century AD. Professor Cakmak has sought to determine the susceptibility of the structure, specifically its large dome and arches, to collapse due to the earthquakes that often strike that part of the world.
