Scythica Vindobonensia  
Links Institut für Alte Geschichte und Altertumskunde Papyrologie und Epigraphik Austrian National Library in Vienna The Scythica Vindobonensia, the new fragments on Gothic incursions into Roman provinces in the Balkans in the middle of the third century AD, are among the most important new additions to the Corpus of texts from classical antiquity. Coming most probably from the Scythica of the third-century historian Dexippus of Athens, the fragments have survived in the Codex Historicus gr. 73 of the Austrian National Library in Vienna as the lower text of four palimpsest folios (192r–195v). For the discovery see Grusková, Untersuchungen, 2010, 51–53, for a preliminary transcription of the text on fols. 192v, 193r, 194rv, and 195rv (that resulted from the research carried out by Jana Grusková and Gunther Martin in 2012-2015 under the project "Important textual witnesses in Vienna Greek palimpsests") see the articles by Martin and Grusková listed below. For further information see the homepage: https://www.oeaw.ac.at/scythica-vindobonensia/ FWF-Project P 28112-G25: 01.08.2015 – 31.07.2020 This project Scythica Vindobonensia aims at revealing, editing and examining these new historiographical and historical fragments, thus providing a solid textual basis and a point of reference for a wide range of further studies. The palaeography, codicology and book history of the manuscript are also being analysed. Jana Grusková and Gunther Martin are further deciphering the fragments. The main output of the project will be a monograph that will contain a critical edition, a full commentary on the text, as well as extended studies on particular issues (authorship etc.), and images of the Vienna palimpsest. New spectral imaging with improved methods, carried out by Early Manuscripts Electronic Library and X-ray fluorescence imaging in cooperation with the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY (Hamburg) and the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM, Berlin) are being used to recover still hidden parts of the erased text. Extended studies on selected historical, prosopographical, epigraphical and geographical aspects are being prepared by Fritz Mitthof, Olivier Gengler, and Kira Lappé. An international conference "Empire in crisis: Gothic invasions and Roman historiography" was organized as part of the project on 3 to 6 May 2017 in Vienna. The proceedings volume has been published in TYCHE Supplementband 12, Holzhausen Verlag, Wien 2020 (see here). The volume unites a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary contributions on invasions of Goths and other Germanic tribes into the Roman Empire, focusing primarily on the third century CE. The contributions explore the Scythica Vindobonensia alias Dexippus Vindobonensis in their historical and historiographical contexts, from the Roman to the Byzantine Era, and the history of the invasions themselves.

Greek Palimpsests  
The Austrian National Library (ÖNB) possesses a considerable number of Greek palimpsests. Many of the lower scripts and erased texts were studied and described during the general cataloguing of the Vienna Greek manuscripts in the 20th century, other palimpsests could only be examined in greater detail during the last two decades, thanks especially to new developments in image technology. Since 2001, several projects at the Division of Byzantine Research of the Austrian Academy of Sciences have undertaken a systematic analysis of the Greek palimpsests of the Austrian National Library with the aim to make them accessible to a larger public. This has resulted in new discoveries of several unique Ancient Greek and Byzantine texts Important textual witnesses in Vienna Greek palimpsests (FWF-Projekt P 24523-G19, 1. Juni 2012 – 31. Mai 2017) Based on previous research, this FWF project of the ÖAW – led by Otto Kresten and conducted by Jana Grusková in cooperation with external specialists (see below) – aims at recovering the cultural heritage hidden in the lower layers of selected codices of the Austrian National Library. Digital images of the palimpsest folios resulting from high-resolution multispectral capture and sophisticated processing – by the Early Manuscripts Electronic Library (EMEL) from California and the Fotoscientifica from Parma (Kamerasystem RE.CO.RD) – enable scholars to read texts that have been invisible before. Five unique Greek textual witnesses of great importance are being examined in cooperation with foreign specialists. 1) Aelius Herodianus, De prosodia catholica The manuscript Hist. gr. 10 contains palimpsest fragments of the work De prosodia catholica on Greek accentuation by Aelius Herodianus (2nd cent. A.D.), one of the most important texts for the history of ancient Greek grammar, containing numerous quotations from ancient Greek authors. O. Primavesi – K. Alpers – J. Grusková, Zum Wiener Herodian-Palimpsest (forthcoming). 2) Florilegium Basilicorum Vindobonense The manuscript Hist. gr. 10 contains also twenty folios of an unknown florilegium of the Basilica, the most extensive legislation that existed in the Byzantine Empire. B. H. Stolte – J. Grusková, Florilegium Basilicorum Vindobonense (forthcoming). 3) Scythica Vindobonensia The Scythica Vindobonensia are the new fragments on Gothic incursions into Roman provinces in the Balkans in the middle of the third century AD, preserved in the manuscript Hist. gr. 73. The fragments come most probably from the Scythica by the historian Dexippus of Athens. The work on and interpretation of this text which is of utmost historical importance is continued in the Project Scythica Vindobonensia. G. Martin – J.

Iur. gr. 18) (forthcoming). 5) Vienna palimpsest of the legend of St. George Of great importance are the majuscule fragments of a very old version of the legend of St. George in the Vienna manuscript lat. 954. E. Gamillscheg – J. Grusková, Zum Wiener Palimpsest der Georgslegende (BHG 670). Codices Manuscripti (2017) (forthcoming). In addition to palimpsests in Vienna, the project also engages in further analysis of the palimpsest fragments of De cerimoniis aulae Byzantinae (Athous Vatop. 1003 and Chalc. S. Trinitatis 133 (125)), the work attributed to the Byzantine Emperor Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus. See M. Featherstone – J. Grusková – O. Kresten, Studien zu den Palimpsestfragmenten des sogenannten „Zeremonienbuches“ II. Codex Vatopedinus 1003 (mit Tafeln) (forthcoming). Within the research focus “Greek palimpsests of the ANL”, other Vienna manuscripts are also examined, among them worthy mentioning are: Homilies by Gregor of Nazianz in mss Suppl. gr. 59 and Suppl. gr. 189 (V. Somers, J. Grusková); fragments of the Basilica in ms Suppl. gr. 200 (B. Stolte, J. Grusková); fragments of the Vita BHG 884 of John of Damascus in ms Phil. gr. 158 (R. Volk, E. Lamberz); Fragments of a homiletic and hagiographical collection in ms Phil. gr. 158 (E. Lamberz, O. Kresten, J. Grusková); Trophaea Damasci in ms Phil. gr. 286 (B. Campos); Diodorus of Tarsus, Commentary on Psalms in ms Theol. gr. 177 (O. Kresten, J. Grusková); fragment of a juridical text in the former fly-leaves (Blotius-Signatur 1536) of the ms Theol. gr. 238 (B. Stolte, J. Grusková). An important contribution towards the recovery of these texts are the new images created by the image scientists of Centre of Image and Material Analysis in Cultural Heritage of the Technical University of Vienna.

Sigillography  
The purpose of the project is the scholarly study and analysis of the published and unpublished sigillographic material in collections all over the world, based on the latest research methods (editing the inscription, accurate dating, commentary on the content and its historical context) in order to make this important source accessible for further historical and philological research. The foremost aim of the project is the edition of the Corpus of Byzantine Seals with Metrical Legends (more than 15.000 seals, representing some 5000 types). Most of these legends are dodecasyllables and date primarily from the 10th to 13th centuries. In addition, work on the catalogue of Byzantine lead seals in Austria (and in other collections, such as in Dumbarton Oaks) continues. Shorter publications deal with problems in Byzantine prosopography, administrative history and historical geography on the basis of seals. Further work is dedicated to the systematic exploration of and commentary on new publications (including auction catalogues) on Byzantine sigillography, which is published at regular intervals in Studies in Byzantine Sigillography and Byzantinische Zeitschrift. The study collection of photographs of Byzantine seals (currently ca. 40.500 images) is continuously expanded.

Lead Seals in Byzantine Thrace  
Lead Seals in Byzantine Thrace: Re-examination of data, mapping the distribution of findings and tracing the communication networks (LSByT). Funded by the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (http://www.lsbyt.web.auth.gr/) Host Institution: Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Andreas Gkoutzioukostas, A.-K. Wassiliou-Seibt, Dimitrios Drakoulis, Dimitrios Sidiropoulos, Konstantinos Diados. Advisory role: Ioannes Leontiades) Collaborating Institutions: Austrian Academy of Sciences (A.-K. Wassiliou-Seibt and Werner Seibt), University of Shumen/Bulgaria (Ivan Jordanov) The subject matter of the project is the Byzantine lead seals or molybdoboulla, an original primary source of Byzantine History, which promotes our knowledge in the administration and social structures as well as the Prosopography and the Historical Geography. An aspect relevant to the function of seals that has not until now been studied is the tracing of the communication networks and the circulation of written information in the Medieval period. In the framework of our research project we look at more than 2000 Byzantine lead seals with an exact find spot that correspond to the Early Byzantine provinces of Rhodope, Thrace, Haimimontos, Moesia Secunda and Scythia Minor (5th-7th c.) and the Middle Byzantine themes of Thrace and Macedonia (8th-12th c.) The main goals of the project are: a) the re-examination of the sigillographic material on the basis of the most accurate reading and dating of the seals, b) the mapping of seals distribution, and c) the tracing of communication networks and circulation of written information in middle Byzantine Thrace. The project represents an interdisciplinary methodological approach (Sigillography, Cartography, Historical Geography). Its contribution to science is expected to be: a) a new corpus of seals found in Bulgaria on the basis of the modern methods and scientific approach criteria developed by the Centre of Byzantine Sigillography of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna, b) digital visualization of results through the creation of standard thematic maps, and c) new intrerpretations of the Byzantine presence in Thrace and the circulation of written information in the region.
