Palamedes: A Journal of Ancient History is published on behalf of the University of Warsaw. It seeks to provide a forum where, within the frames of cultural history broadly defined, ancient historians, classical philologists, archaeologists, jurists, and epigraphists--in a word all those who study Greek and Roman antiquity in its material, linguistic, or intellectual manifestations--can meet with their Orientalist and Egyptological counterparts.
