The inquiry included archaeological reports from the 1960s and 1970s and various contributions concerning this topic, as well as multiple field observations made by the author during his work as a member of the University of Warsaw Archaeological Expedition, acting as site assistant and trench supervisor. Recent discoveries and evidence-based systematic evaluation of architectural components of the gates of Novae allow us to start a new discussion about their specific layout in the context of other Roman military installations</p> 2015-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) Paramilitary Forces at Pompeii and Herculaneum? The Problem of Defining Military Assemblages 2020-02-27T18:17:37+01:00 Radosław A. Gawroński <p>This article analyzes the composition of military assemblages from Pompeii, Stabiae and Herculaneum and discusses the evidence for paramilitary militias. The author argues that some artifacts recovered from a gladiatorial school should be interpreted as belonging to mounted gladiators rather than to urban militia men. Besides, the horse riding equipment may indicate that Italian riding culture differed from that practiced in the limes zone</p> 2015-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) Two Ancient Lamps in the Władysław Łęga Museum in Grudziądz 2020-02-27T18:19:30+01:00 Wojciech Brillowski Dorota Sakowicz <p>The Władysław Łęga Museum in Grudziądz, one of the oldest museums in Poland, has in its collection two ancient oil lamps that have not been published until now. Both lamps are of high quality and of unique form and decoration, even if demanding immediate conservation. An analysis of form and decoration allowed to establish with a high degree of probability the date and place of their manufacture, but some doubts remain about when and where they were acquired. Since the collection itself, as well as its inventories, suffered during the Second World War, the authors had to apply methods of “museum archaeology” to establish provenience of the lamps. Both donors have been identified, and time when the lamps found their way to the museum determined. The data provided by the formal analysis allowed to formulate a hypothesis concerning the provenience of the lamps, based on similar, and better recognized, specimens from other collections. The publication of the Grudziądz lamps not only contributes to the history of antiquarianism in Poland, but also provides importantdata about Roman lamp-making industry</p> 2015-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) The Kymissala (Rhodes, Greece) Archaeological Research Project 2020-02-27T18:21:00+01:00 Manolis I. Stefanakis <p>This article is a report of the archaeological investigations at Kymissala, southwestern Rhodes. Intensive archaeological research in the area started in 2006, as a combined project of the Department of Mediterranean Studies of the University of the Aegean and the Ephorate of Antiquities of the Dodecanese. The main purpose of the project is to determine and document the geographical extend and time span of the ancient demos of Kymissaleis. The history of the archaeological research at Kymissala is presented, as well as a preliminary report on fieldwork undertaken during the years 2009–13. Special emphasis is placed on the excavationof the necropolis, while investigations on the acropolis and in the settlement at the site of Vassilika are also discussed</p> 2015-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) Polish-Macedonian Excavations at Negotino Gradište. Preliminary Report 2009–2015 2020-02-27T18:29:11+01:00 Wojciech Brillowski Arkadiusz Koperkiewicz Goran Sanev Nicholas Sekunda <p>Negotino Gradište has been systematically excavated by a multi-national team since 2009. The site goes as far back as the 5th century BC. The earliest coin found at the site so far is a tetrobol of Acanthus, dating to ca. 525– 470 BC. Fourth-century, Hellenistic, and Roman levels have been excavated so far. There is a hiatus in settlement between the Late Hellenistic and Augustan periods. The site was deserted in the early 2nd century AD. Probably in the reign of Arcadius (AD 383–408) it was roughly fortified as a refuge settlement</p> 2015-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) Acrai/Acrae – The Greek Colony and Roman Town.

The excavations have yielded until now a rich material dating to two main occupational phases in the Late Hellenistic – Early Roman and the Late Roman–Byzantine periods</p> 2015-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c)
