Several new pages

One of the new Behistun photos

The Livius website was founded, in a different form and on another URL, in 1995: almost twenty years ago. It desperately needs to be rebuilt, using new software. Methodological points need to be explained as well, and I want to use the upgrade to add references to the sources that have in the meantime become available on reliable sites, such as LacusCurtius. I also want to undo the fatal error I described here: obliging to a request by several universities not to add references to secondary literature.

Unfortunately, I do not have the time to upgrade it, and I hesitate to add new pages, because I suspect that work I do now, will have to be done again after the conversion. So, that brings the website to some kind of standstill.

This does not mean that nothing happens. Mr Michel Gybels, who has already contributed to the website before, has sent me pages on several archaeological sites in Asia Minor: Euromos, Alexandria in Troas, Phocaea, Clarus, Labranda, and Magnesia on the Meander. I also added a page on Jupiter Heliopolitanus (the god of Baalbek) and Majdel Anjar, plus new photos of the Behistun relief.

    Reblogged this on Zwinglius Redivivus and commented:
    Always worth a look.

  2. I was wondering why the lull. Good to hear about change ! I always wondered who, where, when & why reads these pages, it would be nice indeed if the new website let readership be seen one way or another. Posts are usually a treat, if somewhat difficult to comment on since my walk of life does not usually produce compatible content [hence, my reading yours, of course]. Well… just a thought.

    Always enjoy the posts from the websites. Immensely enjoyable for the reader. So much knowledge to wonder about and to peruse.

    Gratefully, thanks!
