Author Guidelines

1. Text

  • Formatting: left-justified; font size uniformly 12 pt; line spacing uniformly 1.5.

  • Footnote numbers should be typed before punctuation marks (ex.: this tradition is attested in Plutarch’s Moralia1.).

  • For Latin words and for the transliteration of Greek words in Latin alphabet, italics should be used (ex.: rasura; Greek words should be written without accent marks and long vowels: ex. polites, ekklesia).

  • For words in a language different from that used in the article, italics should be used (ex. milieu, équipe).

  • Illustration references should be given in brackets according to the following abbreviations: fig./figs. (figure/figures); pl./pls. (plate/plates) (ex.: (fig. 4)).

2. Footnotes:

  • Formatting: left-justified; font size uniformly 10 pt; single line spacing

  • Footnotes generally end with a full stop.

  • Reference to ancient sources: see infra, par. 4.

  • Reference to modern literature: system author-year should be used (ex.: Hansen 1997; cfr. par. 6 infra). References to concerned page numbers should be given in full (ex.: 192-195; no 192-95 or 192-5) and without abbreviations (i.e. without p./pp; ex.: Hansen 1997, 1-25). Abbreviations as f./ff./sqq. should be avoided, specific page numbers are cited instead. Passim is accepted.

References to footnote numbers should be given with the abbreviation n. or nn. (ex.: Hansen 1997, 13 n. 4 or Hansen 1997, 13 nn. 3-4).

Reprinted texts or new editions of monographic works: the author and the year of the original work should be indicated in round brackets, without the page number.

Ex.: Cracco Ruggini 1995, 54 (= Ruggini 1961)

  • For cross references, infra o supra can be used, followed by the page number without p./pp. (ex.: see infra 25). or by the footnote number with n./nn. (ex.: see infra 25 n. 5).

  • The supra references id./idem, ead./eadem, ibid./ibidem should be avoided. In the case of quotations of several articles/books published by the same author in different years the following criteria should be used: author's last name followed by the year of the oldest contribution and then the years of the most recent contributions separated by semicolons (ex.: Roda 2011, 25-27; 2012, 54-67; 2015, 15-22).

  • The supra reference loc. cit. is not accepted.

Comma should be used only to separate the chapter from the paragraph.

Hom. Il. I 265

Cic. Brut. 39

Aristoph. Av. 561

Philoch. FGrHist. 328 F 108

Isocr. Paneg. [IV] 2

Plat. Resp. 538a

Harpocr. s.v. ἀγενής

Fest. p. 348 L. (only in similar cases abbreviation p. for page is accepted)

 ILLRP 23

 IGUR 123

 IG II3 357

5. Quotes from ancient and modern sources

5.1 Ancient authors

To quote Latin texts, italics without quotation marks should be used (ex.: Plin. NH III, 123: Transpadana appellatur ab eo regio undecima, tota in mediterraneo cui marina cuncta fructuoso alveo inportat).

To quote Greek texts, Roman without quotation marks should be used (ex.: App. BC I, 29, 130: γῆν, ὅσην ἐν τῇ νῦν ὑπὸ Ῥωμαίων καλουμένῃ Γαλατίᾳ). For the Greek characters, please use only a Unicode font. For ex., a Unicode font is downloadable for free here: http://www.ifao.egnet.net/publications/outils/polices/ (the last one at the end of the page).

5.2 Modern authors

To quote texts of modern authors, Roman in small angle brackets should be used («…»).

 Generally, short reported passages, both from ancient and modern authors, should appear in the text. Otherwise, quotes longer than three lines should be centred in infratext body.

5.3 Inscriptions:

Latin inscriptions should be transcribed according to the system adopted in Supplementa Italica (Roma, Quasar).

6. Bibliography

The author-year system is used.

The names of authors as well as the titles of publications in non-Latin alphabets are quoted in the original. Ex.:

Μπίρης 1971: K. Μπίρης, Αἱ τοπωνυμίαι τῆς πόλεως καὶ τῶν περιχώρων τῶν Ἀθηνῶν, Ἀθῆναι

Σταϊνχάουερ 2005: Γ. Σταϊνχάουερ, Αττικής Οδού Περιήγηση, Αθήνα

6.1

Short-form citations are used in the footnotes: surname of author/s should be given in Roman (without first name), followed by the publication year and by the number of the concerned pages (without p./pp.). Ex.:

  • Bickermann 1975, 1-12

  • Blass 1887, I, 125                      If the work is in more volumes, the concerned volume should be given in Roman number.

  • Hansen 1997a, 14-18               Publications by one author with the same year of publication should be differentiated by adding small letters after the year.

Hansen 1997b, 12 n. 3

  • Blok – Lardinois 2006                Co-authors of one work should be linked by a dash with spaces.

  • Coulson – Palagia et al. 1994    If there are more than two authors in a short-form citation, only the first is named with et al. appended; the names of all the authors appear in the list of references. The abbreviation ‘Aa. Vv.’ (various authors) should be avoided

The number of pages should be given in full (ex.: 192-195; no 192-95 or 192-5). Abbreviations as f./ff./sqq. are not accepted; specific page numbers are cited instead. Supra reference passim is accepted.

6.2

In the list of references at the end of article short-form citations should be expanded into full bibliographic information according to the following system:

 

Monographic works: author’s surname in Roman, preceded by the initial of the first name (if the initials of the first name are more than one, they are written consecutively without space); work’s title in italics; eventually name of the series in Roman, followed by the series number in Arabic number; place of publication (as it appears in the original title page, ex.: Paris, Berolini, London, Αθήνα etc.). In the case of several places of editions, these should be separated by a dash (without spaces). Ex.:

Brunt 1971: P.A. Brunt, Italian Manpower 225 BC – AD 14, Oxford.

Azoulay 2004: V. Azoulay 2004, Xénophon et les grâces du pouvoir. De la charis au charisme, Histoire Ancienne et Médiévale 77, Paris.
