On Tuesday next week at the Institute of Archaeology at the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, a round table will take place on the theme of eastern Hellenism, with a focus on new data relating to Hellenistic Bactria. There is particularly strong representation from the Bactrian detachment of the Central Asian archaeological expedition of the IA RAN.
To paraphrase in English from the publicised information, presentations will be on:
Parthian settlements in the vicinity of Ashgabat and settlement structure in the 2nd-1st centuries BC (V. N. Pilipko), Greek and local religious practice at Torbulok (G. Lindström), Greek and local traditions in the Hellenistic ceramics of Bactria (K. Junker), results from work at Uzundara in 2018 (N. D. Dvurechenskaya), field research methodologies for studying archaeological remains from Uzundara in 2018 (O. V. Dvurechenskii), inscriptions of Uzundara and terminology for the northwest Bactrian defensive complex (F.V. Shelov-Kovedyayev), survey data from the southern slope of Susiztag (O. V. Bel’sh), typological-statistical work on flasks from Uzundara (T. O. Dvurechenskaya), the settlement Gishttepa (V. V. Mokroborodov), and the new publication of the first volume of results from the 2001-2010 excavations at Kampyrtepa, Кампыртепа – кушанская крепость на Оксе. Том 1/ Археологические исследования 2001-2010 гг. (S. B. Bolelov).
I look forward to hearing about how the event goes, and I will also post more about the latter book on Kampyrtepa in the coming days!
