      THE NEW ISSUE OF RIHAO (NO. 12-13, 2005-2006) IS ALREADY AVAILABLE:

      Table of contents

      -Manfred Korfmann †, Troya a la luz de las nuevas investigaciones

      Troy in the Light of the New Research: In this conference, Prof. Korfmann, Director of the Tübingen Troia Project since 1988, presents the results of the archaeological work in the site of Hisarlik, Turkey, emphasizing the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration. The excavation results are in accordance with recent research in Homeric and Anatolian studies. The demonstration of the existence of an extense Lower City during the Late Bronze Age is a main achievement of the Project. During the Late Bronze Age, Troy was the center of a region with strong links with the Hittite world.

      -Alicia Daneri Rodrigo, Interrelaciones en el Mediterráneo Oriental durante el Bronce Tardío

      Interrelations in the Eastern Mediterranean during the Late Bronze Age: The second half of the second millennium was a period of expansion of inter-regional relations in the eastern Mediterranean. Because of its military control over large parts of Siria-Palestine during this time Egypt increased existent contacts and developed new ones with states and lands in Anatolia and the Aegeum. The complex issue of the inter-regional relations previous to the crisis that ended the Late Bronce Age is reviewed in the light of results of recent research.

      -Pablo A. Cavallero, La Troya de Homero

      The Troy of Homer: This article reviews Homer's references to Troy (not to other cities), in orden to define the characteristics of Ilion and to confront them with the archaeological testimonies of the recent excavations. It concludes that the Troy of Homer coincides with the reconstruction made by Manfred Korfmann.

      -Marcelo Campagno, El mundo antiguo: El pasado, el mito, la historia (A propósito de la conferencia “Troya: leyenda y realidad” de M. Korfmann)

      The Ancient World: Past, Myth and History (On the Conference “Troy: Legend and Reality” by M. Korfmann): Taking into account the diversity of references about Troy provided by Homer's legacy and modern archaeology, this article proposes some reflections on the different ways to evoke the past corresponding to the myth and the historical discourse. In doing so, three topics related to the Ancient World are considered: the question of the first king of the 1st Dynasty in Ancient Egypt (Menes/Narmer); the question of the Hebrew king David; and the question of the Trojan horse, the famous trick that made possible the fall of Ancient Ilios.

      -John Baines, Definiciones tempranas del mundo egipcio y sus alrededores

      Early Definitions of the Egyptian World and its Surroundings: This article considers the fundamental changes in the Egyptian presentation of order and of dominance of the surrounding world that took place during the formative period of the Egyptian state (Nagada III / Dynasty 0). The principal material analysed is drawn from the decorated knives, palettes, and maceheads of the period. These artifact types provide crucial evidence for reconstructing the message which the elite proclaimed to itself about Egypt and its relations with the outside world.

      -Donald B. Redford, The Language of Keftiu: the Evidence of the Drawing Board and the London Medical Papyrus (BM 10059) in the British Museum

      This article discusses the so-called “language of Keftiu” as occurs in two texts: the names in the London drawing board and the incantations in the London medical papyrus (BM 10059) and proposes a new interpretation. The names are of different origin, including Achaean Greek, and the spells in the medical papyrus can be understood as some form of Akkadian.

      -Alejandro F. Botta, Scribal Traditions and the Transmission of Legal Formulae in the Aramaic Papyri from Elephantine

      This article analizes the stylistic peculiarities of the scribes in the legal documents of the Jewish colony in Elephantine. The diverse family traditions and their diferent places of origin are distinguished, proving that the Aramaic documents of Elephantine/Syene represent a variety of traditions regarding the legal formulae employed.

      -Mercedes García Bachmann, A la búsqueda de trabajadoras en la biblia hebraica. Algunos problemas metodológicos

      Seeking Female Workers in the Hebrew Bible: Some Methodological Difficulties: The world of labor in the Bible has been hardly explored. In order to classify the available material and make it into a somewhat coherent system, the most serious methodological difficulties are: a) determine a term's meaning (there are no “job descriptions”); b) inclusion of women in masculine terms; and c) inclusion of women in hereditary guilds (wood-cutters, water-drawers, priests, etc.). There are female workers in the Israelite orthodox cultic realm (singers, weilers, prophetesses, etc.), in the non-Yahvistic realm (diviners, consecrated women), in the political realm (counselors, judges, queens, prophetesses, etc.) and in services to different groups (prostitutes, sheep tenders, midwives, caretakers, etc.).

      - Frank Starke, Los hititas y su imperio

      The Hitities and their Empire: In this paper, the main characteristics of the Hittite Empire during the Second Millennium B.C. are considered. The aim is not only to provide a general view of the Hittite History but, especially, to highlight the main features of the political culture, linked to concepts such as the aristocratic-monarchic constitution, the federal structure of the Empire and the cohesive strenghth of the Hittites in political and cultural matters. It is particularly emphasized that conceptions normally atributted to the Greeks or to later epochs, proceed from the political thought of the Hittites.
