We shall be recruiting for 3 PhD posts (4 years) per Jan. 2019. One PhD project addresses festivals in the representation of Hellenistic rulers and ruler cult. The second PhD project addresses festival network dynamics at a regional level. Both projects will use network analysis and agent-based modelling to interpret the role of festivals in creating Hellenistic connectivity. A third PhD project addresses Rome-oriented cults and festivals in the Greek world. Prosp[ective candidates may contact us email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Moretti's Imperial Olympionikai and Brunet's Ephesian athletes online
For the past two months, we have been entering data from two prosopographies, viz. the athletes from the Imperial period listed in Moretti's 'Olympionikai' (1957) and Brunet's collection of Ephesian athletes, from his 1998 dissertation, 'Greek Athletes in the Roman World: The Evidence from Ephesos'. Save some problematic cases, we are happy to announce that we will finish working on these lists this week. Users can now search through the data of over 500 athletes and musicians who won more than 3000 victories. And for those of you who wondered: no, these over 3000 victories are not largely made up of Emperor Nero's 1808 victories (as claimed by Cassius Dio). Only the victories by Nero that are linked to actual festivals in ancient sources have been added to the database as separate victories. The almost eighty recorded victories by Valerius Eklektos have of course been added separately.
Data on synod members to be added thanks to Bram Fauconnier
We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Bram Fauconnier has allowed us to include in our database the list of members of athletic and artistic synods of the Roman imperial period that he collected for his recent Amsterdam PhD. We shall add the data ASAP.
