Monumenta Asiae Minoris Antiqua XI: Monuments from Phrygia, Lycaconia, and Cappadocia

Project Description:

The aim of the MAMA XI project is to make available some 600 unpublished inscriptions and other ancient monuments, recorded by Sir William Calder (1881-1960) and Dr Michael Ballance (†27 July 2006) in the course of annual expeditions to Asia Minor in 1954-1957. The digitisation and web-publication of the archive is one of the most important and innovative aspects of the MAMA XI project. This website, developed by the project team, will eventually include full editions with comprehensive high-resolution photographic illustration of all the monuments in the Calder-Ballance archive. The website will make use of TEI-compliant xml text encoding to create the corpus. A few sample texts will appear on this website shortly. An old-fashioned epigraphical corpus in book-form (Monumenta Asiae Minoris Antiqua XI: Monuments from Southern Phrygia, Lycaconia, and Cappadocia), with extensive historical and geographical introduction, is planned for 2013, to be published by the Roman Society in the JRS Monographs series.
