The research of the Institute for the Study of Ancient Culture (IKAnt) covers a wide cultural-historical range with studies reaching from the Archaic to the Byzantine period and including the entire Mediterranean region, the Roman Danube provinces, Iran, Central Asia as well as the Indo-Iranian borderlands.

The focus of research is not on providing sources through excavations, but rather on the compilation, edition and analysis of archaeological, epigraphic, numismatic, papyrological and literary sources. Of special interest are aspects of cultural, political, social, economic and legal history as well as questions of a supra-regional range.
