Ancient writing systems in the Mediterranean

A critical guide to electronic resources

The project

Portal for Ancient Writing Systems in the Mediterranean (from the origins to the 6th century A.D.)

Mnamon provides information on the best and most useful material available on the web for the research and study of ancient writing systems in the Mediterranean: archives, research centers, bibliographies and teaching materials.

All information is selected and critically reviewed by specialists. A brief presentation of the characteristics, the places and times when documented and the languages that used each writing system are included.

Editing of the materials is carried out by individuals or small groups of specialists of each writing system, with regular seminars involving all the specialists.

Students, specialists and researchers will all find material of interest on the Portal.

We plan to add a comment and discussion area, moderated by specialists, where users can leave any comments to help us improve or update our information, and where researchers can meet and share information.
