Zum Angriff der Goten unter Kniva auf eine thrakische Stadt (Scythica Vindobonensia, f. 195v)


Grusková, Jana; Martin, Gunther (2015). Zum Angriff der Goten unter Kniva auf eine thrakische Stadt (Scythica Vindobonensia, f. 195v). Tyche, 30:35-53.

Abstract

This paper completes the first presentation of the new historical fragments on Gothic incursions into the Balkans in the middle of the 3rd century AD. Coming most probably from the Scythica by Dexippus of Athens, the fragments have been preserved as palimpsest in the Vienna manuscript Vind. Hist. gr. 73. The paper contains a preliminary transcription, translation and analysis of one of the eight extant pages, fol. 195v; processed spectral images are included. The account of a Gothic attack under Cniva on a Thracian town described on fol. 195r (already published) is being continued on this new page, detailing in particular the strategem that led to the capture of the city wall. The information given corroborates the previous assumption that the town is Philippopolis (modern Plovdiv). The new fragment may thus add to the extant abridged reports on the seizure of this town in 250 AD.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
